Hey look! New music! I was sent information on this band from their PR rep a couple of weeks ago to whom I am grateful for providing this opportunity to not only discover some new music myself, but also for sharing with my readers. With the rich music and cultural history of Russia I have been wondering where today’s artists have been hiding. From the Bio info: Moscow-based post-progressive rock trio PuzzleWood launched their full-length debut Gates of Loki in late 2017. The main idea of the album is the existential journey between the reality and the myth, between different places and even periods of history. Every song is a poem in my opinion, and the majority of tracks are based on the real historical events or myths of different nations of the world. To help the trio’s vision with the album, guest musicians were brought in to shape up the sound implementing various ethnic instruments such as Bouzouki and Arabic Oud, along with flute, violin and percussion.
