Dark Radio - Oakwind (2012)

The debut album from this Portugese band, released on the 12. October 2012.

We are deep into modern prog aka Porcupine Tree and Radiohead here. Add Led Zeppelin, Fates Warning and Pearl Jam to the mix too and you get it. A bit heavy prog in other words with a lot of prog metal fused into the mix too. But it is not traditional prog metal by any means.

The vocalist sounds a bit like Eddie Vedder and the guitars are distorted. The band also uses piano and keyboards too. Spaced out grungy is what it sounds like. The music is tight and the vocals is great.

The result is a good album which is streamed on the link below and well worth checking out. I am by no means a fan of this type of music. But I still like this album.
