Otherworldly and almost mystical, ‘Nepenthe’ is the new single from New York prog-rock-fusion band Zetizen. In the finest traditions of prog, it’s obtuse, unusual and very high quality. It won’t be to everyone’s tastes, but if you’re a music fan of open mind there’s a lot to enjoy here.

by combining Eastern and Western instrumentation, Zetizen have created a cross over sound that should appeal across the board, and the way they blend the styles is very interesting indeed. The rhythms are off kilter, the melodies dark, and there are no lyrics to be found (singalong fans need not apply), but all in all this is a top effort from a left-field band worth checking out.
