    well, I may be crazy... but this album sounds a lot like classic Heldon to me

    excellent!
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Listening to the embeds in this thread is the first I've checked out Vespero. I love what I hear. Trouble is, I don't at all consider it to be Space Rock, and every outlet I checked describes them as that. Now, I love Space Rock, but at this point, I have enough. If I buy some of this, I'm looking for stuff that sounds like the embeds, not classic Space Rock. Am I setting myself up for disappointment? I took a chance on the recent preorder that drops February 1st. and ordered that. How do the rest of their output stack up, understanding that I'd rather avoid the Space Rock?

    I only have Carta Marina and I'd say its a mix between retro prog, avant prog and space rock.

    Really loving 'Sada' at the moment. I probably like this one even better then Carta marina, which was very good as well. This one has maybe a little more variation in sounds and moods.

    For me the first winner of 2020.

    The new record is outstanding! At first couple of listens I wasn't so sure, but now it is sinking in. There seems to be some densely composed material, along with more improvisational parts - so this feels like it should appeal more to Prog fans than Carta Marina (which was also great, but simpler as a conception). Definitely it is not an easy record to get into, one needs to pay attention when listening, to not lose the thread.

    I would be very interested to know how this collaboration works. Does Ontalva spend time in Russia? Who is writing what? I love Angel's writing style, he allows his hand to carry him away in unexpected ways but always keeps the various moods, influences, ideas under control. To me he is one of the few really great creative minds working in the rock music context these days.

    People should listen and buy this as soon as possible.

    Nice!.
    More music from Angel O and Ark V:

    “Dear Friend:

    We have released a new album called Ángel Ontalva & Ark Vespero "Shaman Rock".
    The idea of this duo with Ark Fedotov (Vespero) appeared at the recording sessions for the album Sada, in the fall of 2019. In January I wrote and recorded six new compositions inspired on the Baikal Lake, and Ark added his dreamy vintage synth parts in the past week. So, this is absolutely fresh new music, and I hope you will enjoy it.

    It will be released only in digital format and available on octoberXart Records:”

    ^^^ I played this one yesterday. Enjoyed it a lot.

    More laid back than Sada but some great melodic playing by Angel. Recommended! (again)
