Minerva biography
The band MINERVA was founded in 2008 in Postdam, Germany by Enrico SEMLER (vocals), Jan WATERSTRADT (guitar), Ron HERMANN (bass) and Martin MANN (drums). After touring, they released a first EP ''Stories of A Journeyman'', in 2010. This EP has a hard rock sound with elements of psychedelic and jazz. After Enrico overtook Ron's job as a bass player, the band continues as a trio completed with sax player Benjamin IHNOW in 2012.
They released their first complete CD ''Germinal'' in 2013 and found their sound with some duel between sax and guitar and progressive grooves from the rhythm section. Their psychedelic prog contains unpredictable structures with some extended songs.

Minerva Heavy Prog

Review by aapatsos
Special Collaborator Prog Metal and Heavy Prog Teams

— First review of this album —
4 stars A fresh breeze of psychedelic/street heavy prog!

Impressed by their sample on Progsphere's Progstravaganza compilation, I sought further for these retro-sounding Germans and found treasure in the well... ''Germinal", their debut album, boasts of enthusiastic, up-tempo psychedelic moods, stoner rhythms, compatible with a somewhat avant-garde/jazz tendency for experimentation and direct influences from the 70's.

The four-piece benefits from Benjamin Ihnow's exceptional performance on the saxophone, which gives them the kick to go the extra mile, escaping from the stoner/indie norm of our days. Here, Atomic Rooster and The Mars Volta blend with blues, post-rock, canterbury (!), jazz and mathy riffs. The raw, "street" sound is due to their main influence: "music which we can hear on vinyl."

They have no fear in experimenting with long compositions, often using the bluesy style of Led Zeppelin with Zappa-esque or VDGG intersections. Yet, the result comes out so fresh and certainly heavier than any of the artists mentioned above. Vocals are in the same line, retro-rocking, somehow resembling to Bigelf. The only track where the stoner character dominates is "Hastily", but even then the organ-sounding keyboards reveals their progressive roots. And as if the variety wasn't enough, "Der gläserne Käfig" is a 4-minute folksy acoustic guitar interlude with some excellent flute sections.

Surprised at how this gem has gone unnoticed, I cannot rate this with anything less than 4 stars. The creativity is flowing from every corner of this album.

Highlights (if I have to...): Before I Lost My Fight And Sight, All I've Done, Schicht im Schacht

Thanks to andy webb for the artist addition.
