This is the latest studio release from Vespero as of this writing and it is the somewhat unexpected and really great collaboration between the Spanish guitarist Angel Ontalva, the leader of October Equus and this fabulous space rock band from Russia.
For whatever reason this adds a heavy Djam Karet vibe on top of the Vespero sound.
You DO want this!

"Carta Marina is the first collaboration between the guitarist, composer and visual artist Ángel Ontalva (October Equus) and Russian space-prog rockers Vespero.
Inspired by images and visions of the "Carta marina et descriptio septentrionalium terrarum", the first map of the Nordic countries to give details and place names, created by Olaus Magnus and published in 1539.

"...This is overwhelming music. Mindblowing music. Brilliant music. When concept and music marries in this way there is really nothing that soothes my soul in the same way. This is a truly breathtaking album, a breathtaking journey and a breathtaking listen. I love it. I really do. I find no faults. Splendid instrumentation and execution. And if I feel this way after just a few hours, how much more will I find after weeks of listening? I dare say more. I can't rate it higher than five stars but that is the only thinkable rating for me. Thank you, Vespero and Angel Ontalva..."-progarchives
