MindOverFour The two Kylver albums are simply some of the best modern instrumental rock music there is. Organ-driven, progressive riffage. Sometimes moody, sometimes thunderous. I often lose interest in long songs and instrumental songs, but that never happens here. Favorite track: The Mountain Has Ghosts.

ALPHA-OMEGA Prepare to be absorbed by the enthralling atmosphere of this album... you will get dragged into its mountainous peaks and blissfully ejected from its heights.
Well crafted post-metallisms adorn the sludgy progressive audio tale of a Ghost that's hard to tame... Favorite track: The Dance of the Mountain Ghost.

Spoonbräu I'm not quite into Prog Rock and the keyboard is a bit confusing at first but KYVLER managed to convert me to a music I won't usually listen. It may be different if there was vocals but fortunately there are none. This deserves emphasis.

about

‘The Mountain Ghost’ is a concept record that interoperates the tail of a spirit that inhabits a mountain deep in a remote Mountain range is a far off land. During the winter months the spirit travels down the mountain to a small village that sits in the floor of the valley to torment the people of the village. After generations of winter torment the villagers decide to lure the Mountain Ghost to a feast they hold in his honour in an attempt to make peace with him. But instead of making peace with the spirit the villagers hatch a cunning plan to poison his wine which leads his slow and agonising death.
