kadees Spleen Arcana haben ein musikalisch ganz ansprechendes Album im melodischen Retrobereich vorgelegt - wenn man sich durch den Gesang nicht all zu sehr abschrecken lässt.

Juan Diego Martín Encinas Old sounds. Remember me sounds of the seventies, with an epic and dark touch. I like this band. Favorite track: The Missing Piece.

Spleen Arcana's debut album

"A combination of Pink Floyd, U2, and Van der Graaf Generator, if such a thing can be imagined" - PROGARCHIVES

"Marillion with a touch of Chris Squire" - MYSPACE

"Progressive music that will lead you on an emotional roller coaster" - AMAZON

"The Field Where She Died" takes on a gentle variety of art rock in the symphonic vein, where vintage influences and a vintage sound are dominating aspects of the production" - PROGRESSOR

"Si cet univers-là puise donc son inspiration essentiellement du côté du metal et du rock progressif, il a le bon goût de préférer le fond à la forme, exprimant une mélancolie atmosphérique, une sorte d'impressionnisme sombre et contemplatif, qui peut parfois évoquer Anathema" - FREDERIC DELAGE

"Dark and gloomy (but exhilarating) music featuring loads of moody mellotron. (…) Certainly, anyone who loves mellotron will find plenty to appreciate here, but the guitar effects, vast array of keyboard sounds and vocal filters lift things beyond the ordinary." - PROGRESSION

"Melancholy and symphonic are the two best descriptives, but not in any way similar to the Scandinavian prog scene. Spleen Arcana has its own sound incorporating a bit of early Marillion here and a bit of early King Crimson there." - JERRY LUCKY

"The overall finished product sounds, if you can imagine it, a little like a cross-fertilisation between the symphonic prog-rock of early King Crimson, or perhaps even Camel, and male-fronted gothic-rock." - DPRP
