Ex - EMPYRIUM decided to take their project to another dimension, so that, under a new brand, they are presenting a Progressive Rock from the 70's, rather experimental and, but still revealing some Metal shadows! Markus's voice and some keyboard effects remind me about EMPYRIUM, but the entire structure is now transformed, so that is why it's rather difficult for me to characterize it. It is obvious that nature remains the main inspiration theme for the two, but from this start point to the one NOEKK aspires to reach there is a gap difficult to comprehend as far as I'm concerned! I really enjoyed listening to the album, that conceives a certain mysterious charm and attraction. DEAD CAN DANCE cover-version, "How Fortunate The Man With None", is also excellently interpreted in a NOEKK style! Stick your ears to this project!
