about
A portrait… mine, yours… it’s just one’s reflection crafted by nature’s key elements. As you probably figured it out, “Portrait for a Reflection” is a tribute brought to the synergy between man and nature, the power of free will, alongside with the optimistic thought of belonging to an infinite universe. The album contains five songs, each one impersonating through title and sound emotions given by the nature’s five key elements.

“Portrait for a Reflection” is our second full-length album, but as opposed to “On Icy Shores”, we’ve approached it as an instrumental album right from the beginning. This allowed us to bring new dimensions to our sound, combining various post-rock, post-metal and progressive elements, among others, with the main purpose of bringing a fresh vibe to instrumental music.

about
“On Icy Shores” is about the the journey of the hopeless soul who gives up living. But escape is within our reach. We just need to realize that it all depends on us, having the strenght to give purpose and meaning to one’s path.
With this album, we tried to recreate this sinusoidal path of life, through musical context and song title. We chronologically pass through a univers full of possibilities, amibiguity, nostalgy, despair only for, in the end, to relink with our old acquaintance, hope.

Music | Fjord (bandcamp.com)

Spectacular instrumental post metal band from Romania, using layered textures of progressive, sludge metal, ambient, melancholy, in an atmospheric background.

His melodies are long, well-structured, immersive, refined, full of sliding, distorted, high-pitched, precise riffs, with beautiful fingerings, a prominent bass, a drums in both times, absorbed in creative and inspiring cinematic effects.

With a smooth and increasing cadence, its chords and arpeggios involve a superb and immersive soundscape, full of details and an impressive technical vigor.

His work is exquisite, extremely high quality, with a refined and ecstatic creation.

His last gem was released in 2016, Portrait for a Reflection, a magnificent album, polished, with five simply epic and engaging melodies, and eager for news.
