Pereskesije (Portman, 2009)

A very modern and lively track this "Pereskesije" is. Taken from the same titled album by Croatian band Portman, it perfectly illustrates their music, richly arranged, treble edged and nonetheless featuring some traditional prog sides. Porcupine Tree, Pink Floyd, King Crimson and Hogarth-era Marillion could be some of the sources of Portman's inspiration, but you'll find this song mostly original and innovative.

"Pereskesije" was the debut album by Portman.
 
A tricky guitars interplay, some beautiful dreamy keboards and a little distorted guitars are the trademarks of "Pereskesije", and I also like the rythmic crescendo of this song, specially driven by a splendid bass guitar. There is a constant tension and an underlying sense of wonder that impress me and I'm sure you'll appreciate too. A very unusual and post-everything way to go prog.
