Tillian - Lotus Graveyard (2019)
The debut album from this band from Israel.
The band is a sextet with a lineup of cello, guitars, keyboards, drums, bass and female vocals.
It is nice to see that Israel has a growing amount of progressive rock bands. It is very nice to see the growth of progressive rock.
Tillian is not purely a progressive rock band. They are a progressive metal band with a lot of neo-prog influences.
And they are lead by a female vocalist and her vocals.
Their sound and music is very commercial with nice guitar hooks and riffs. There is also a lot of keyboards here. On the top of this, the female vocals dominates.
The cello adds another dimension to their music and a very good one.
All of this is very well done and the vocals is very good. What is missing is a couple of killer tracks or even some great tracks.
The music nice and good enough. And being a debut album, this is an acceptable debut album. I am not entirely won over, though.
But this is still a moderate good album.
