Shurakay - Overseas Tales (2021)

The debut album from this band from Spain.

The band is a quartet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars and keyboards.

This is a new band in the Spanish scene and the world wide progressive rock scene. A nice addition, it is.

The band does instrumental music and this album is clocking in at over one and an half hour. Yes, it is a Bandcamp album.

I am not a big fan of instrumental prog. Well, unless it is really good.

Shurakay gives us some really dynamic music somewhere between symphonic prog, flamenco, progressive metal, soundtrack music and fusion.

The music is dynamic and pretty hard and wild throughout. 

The music also has some really great musicianship with some great guitar solos and hooks. The bass and drums is very good too.

That alone does not make a good or a great album. A good/great album requires some quality too.

The quality here is somewhere between decent and good. That said, this is one of the better instrumental prog albums this year. If you are into instrumental prog, get this album. If not.....
