Corsair - Corsair

Shadow Kingdom Records
Starting out as a tribute band of Black Sabbath, Corsair soon decided to go their own way. So it was about 2008 when the band took shape. Keeping the flame alive for 70s classic rock, hard rock & psychedelic rock music, they immediately put all of their influences from acts like: Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep, Wishbone Ash, King Crimson & Camel among others on the table.
While retaining the 70s sounds as much as they could you can feel that this album ain’t coming from that era. Thing which is not necessarily bad. They do have studied this music very well and they are capable of creating nice atmospheres & good guitar harmonies. Mostly instrumental – there are vocals here & there – Corsair are kinda paying tribute to the music they grew up with or simply worship.
Assuredly, they can’t top that 70s bands nor the music of that era but they can effortlessly lay down their own – a bit unoriginal though – musical proposition. I think that “Corsair” is a solid release but the guys seem to know what they wanna do, thus I expect more from them in the future…
