2 stars I don't really remember if it was early this 2015, or by the end of 2014 when a friend talked to me about Plini (thanks for the suggestion), and when I listened to his music, I realized there was a new and truly gifted guy with an enormous potential creating progressive rock in the further lands of Australia. He works under the nickname of Plini and he composes and plays everything that can be listened on his releases (almost all).

His music provides clever compositions where guitar plays the main role. He, as a composer and performer has all the elements to succeed, and though nowadays there is not a full-length album (he has just released singles and EPs so far), when it appears I am sure people's feedback will be positive. Plini creates virtuoso instrumental music, sometimes in the metal vein, sometimes with a jazz spirit, sometimes with symphonic passages, but always with a satisfactory result.

'Moonflower' was his first single, released back in 2012 and though it is a short 3-minute song, I think it is a solid introduction to his music. Since the first seconds we can appreciate a fast metal-oriented track whose guitar is impressive, but whose drums are also very well executed. Later it makes a short change and for some seconds the music becomes a bit jazzy, but later it returns to its original form and flows until it fades out.

Now don't pay attention to my rating, because as a reviewer I have my 'own rules' which don't allow me to rate releases under 20 minutes with more than 2 stars, unless it is the EP or single of my life. Better go and listen to Plini's music on his bandcamp site.

Enjoy it!
