CD Review: New Progressive Rock Music Arriving From Kotebel And Impuritan

First from Spain comes the 7th studio album from European progressive rock legends Kotebel. Their new album titled "Cosmology" was released back in July and it is the band's first studio album in five years. The new 9-track album features the 4-part "Cosmology Suite," which takes up the heart of the album. Before that, we get re-introduced to Kotebel with the adventurous, 8-plus minute "Post Ignem." Then it's time to sit and relax with the nearly 33-minute "Cosmology Suite," which will take you on a sonic journey that you'll want to experience again and again. Their new album wraps up with the bluesy feel of "A Bao A Qu" and the quiet, piano piece "Paradise Lost."

From the west coast comes the latest release titled "Altered Statues" from the experimental rock trio Impuritan. It was recorded back in 2016 and features 4-tracks, beginning with the spaced-out, psychedelic landscape of "Spruce." The song carries a dark rock tone with Pink Floydian elements presented throughout. They follow that up with experimental instrumental "Strange Swim" that builds up with the buzzing of guitars. After the quick one-minute punk-like blast of "Poison Candy," Impuritan finish their latest release with the sixties feel of "Death Trippers" as they settle in to their sound to close out the album.
