PHAVIAN “Meridian I”

“Meridian I”
Phavian seem to have a very elaborate plan for the future releasing four albums in a conceptual series with “Meridian I” being the first. For that I celebrate them. I like it when people put all on one card and just go for it. Better them than me. “Meridian I” could have started better than with an instrumental track but hey, from here it can only go up. I don’t know why but for some reason I came to think of Hammers of Misfortune when I listen to Phavian. Not that they are musically connected but more for the fact that they both seem to go their own way in the progressive metal jungle. There is an emotional side to “Meridian I” that adds to the whole progressive touch. It’s not jingly-jangly twiddly-twaddly wizardry but a bit more depth to it. I like that progressive side more than the technical advanced. Phavian turned out to be an impressive new acquaintance. Anders Ekdahl
