Australien-Import: lim. Digipack.


Das aus Melbourne (Australien) stammende Quintett hat sich dem instrumentalen ProgRock vermacht. Dabei flirtet man mit Jazz-Elementen und verbindet sie mit härteren Gitarrenriffs und allerlei technischen wie auch elegischen Gitarrensoli. Die beiden Gitarristen übernehmen ganz klar Oberhand, während der Keyboarder sich im Hintergrund behält und eher gruppendienlich seine Beiträge beisteuert. Die Rhythmustruppe macht eine gute Falle und trotzt jedem Taktwechsel mit Können und Passion. Inspiriert durch die Siebzigerjahre, transferriert die Band diese Einflüsse in modernere Sounds. In Circus glaube ich ein bisschen Camel und Genesis herauszuhören. Ansonsten scheint man mir näher an Bands wie Rush, Mahavishnu Orchestra oder auch Special Providence zu sein.

Die Anspieltipps sind für mich ganz klar Circus und auch Anubis, wo man raffiniert zwischen Technik, Jazz und Atmosphäre wechselt und dadurch viel Spannung erzeugt wird.


Fazit: Tolles Instrumentalalbum. Für Gitarrenfreaks und Fusionfans absolut hörenswert.

A majestic and sometimes terrifying 5-legged beast native to Melbourne, Australia. Performs instrumental music - inspired by the progressive rock of the seventies, but played with a modern fusion-metal punch. Founded in 2011 by Simon WOOD (Drums), Haris BOYD-GERNY (Guitar), Scott ASHBURN (Guitar), Geoffrey FYFE (Keyboards) and Colin ANDREWS (Bass) - Kettlespider made their mark in 2012 with the release of their independently released concept album, ‘‘Avadante‘‘.

The album received critical acclaim in publications such as Classic Rock‘s "PROG" magazine and HeavyBlogIsHeavy and was featured in the Progarchives ‘‘Top 100 Albums of 2012‘‘. 2013 welcomed the release of two new singles, ‘‘The Transcent‘‘ and ‘‘Inevitable‘‘, and saw the band complete a successful tour of Victoria. In 2014, the band recorded a live set at Melbourne‘s prestigious Black Pearl Studios.


The ensuing release, ‘‘Live at Black Pearl‘‘, provided an insight into Kettlespider‘s incredible musicianship and energetic live performances, garnering them a loyal following in Europe and Japan. Kettlespider have been regular feature artists at Australia‘s PROGFEST over the years, and have also performed alongside major acts such as Caligula‘s Horse, Ne Obliviscaris, Black Majesty, Orsome Welles and My Empty Phantom (USA).


In 2016, Kettlespider headlined the inaugural ‘‘Vision Festival‘‘ in Adelaide alongside other notable acts from Australia‘s progressive music scene.


The band also undertook the ambitious ‘‘Building a Spider‘‘ project, whereby they recorded and released a new song, or "leg" of the spider, every month for eight months. ‘‘Kettlespider‘‘, the band‘s self-titled second album, is the final culmination of the ‘‘Building a Spider‘‘ project.
