Sanhedrin - Ever After. 2011 Israel

Sanhedrin are a new band from Israel where guitar and flute are the main thrust of the music. Features Shem-Tov Levi from the legendary Sheshet on flute. Melody is first and foremost, with a strong emphasis on old school analog instrumentation and production values. I'm reminded of bands from the 1980s and early 90s underground that were highly influenced by prime Camel. Groups such as Asia Minor, Minimum Vital, Solaris, and Rousseau all come to mind here. Towards the end of the disc there's a distinct Pulsar (hence Pink Floyd) influence. The modern Japanese group TEE also could be a reference here. A superb debut.
