In 'Progressive' terms, although PORT MAHADIA may not quite be described as a super-group, accomplished and seasoned musicians from the fields of mainstream and progressive rock form the band. The debut album, 'Echoes In Time', was principally written by Cameron CASTLE (guitars) who admits his principle influences include Yngwie MALMSTEEN, Eric JOHNSON, and Stevie Ray VAUGHAN among others.
A concept album telling a salty sea story may not be what one might expect from a band based in Kentucky, but these guys pull this one off quite nicely. The compositions are mixed in style, with quite a few ballads, some shorter mood pieces and some tracks where the band really rock out, verging on prog metal in style. High class guitar work and excellent symphonic keyboard textures are dominating traits, violins courtesy of David Ragsdale appear on several tracks to enhance mood and atmosphere, and as a solid foundation on all tracks you'll find a solid bass line and neat drumming. ~progarchives.com
