Take Me Far Away biography
A point of reference, when was the beginning of the emergence of a group TAKE ME FAR AWAY, can be considered the year 2003. It was then that Dmitrij KSHANOVSKIJ, the guitarist and leader of the group, together with his two schoolmates decided to form a band. A little later they were joined by the drummer, with whom Dmitry studied together at the music school. In the first years after the founding of the group, the musicians have been mostly studying, trying to develop. Over the years, the mastery of the musicians grew, sometimes slightly changing the composition of the group. In 2009, the group made the transition to musical direction, in which they are now playing. At some point, the group began to invent this stuff at rehearsals, in the process of jams. The process was very exciting, but long. The debut album ''Contemplation of Infinity'' was in the process of making for five years, and two and a half years were spent on the recording/mixing. Throughout this period there were no relevant, well-written songs that allowed the band to actively express themselves. In addition, the band's name had twice been changed. Previously, the group had the name G-DRIVE, and only recently, the release of the album, it was decided to give the group a new name - TAKE ME FAR AWAY.

Contemplation of Infinity
Take Me Far Away Heavy Prog

Review by zravkapt

4 stars This is the debut album from Russian band Take Me Far Away. The band is a quartet featuring two guitarists. On this release there is also a guest viola player and a guest keyboardist as well. This is an instrumental album and the music can be described as a mix of prog metal, symphonic prog and post-rock. "Rising" sounds like post-rock meets symphonic rock. Gets more metal sounding around halfway. "Shuttle Ride" begins very blues-rock/"classic rock" sounding. When the viola arrives it goes more into prog metal territory. Becomes more symphonic with piano towards the middle. Symphonic post-rock and then symphonic prog metal to finish it. "Flying With A Parachute" has good production values. Basically prog metal throughout, from the more jazzy to the more symphonic.

"Path Of Life" is the longest song. Generally on the symphonic side of things with lots of guitar soloing. Has heavier moments as well. I would recommend this album to fans of guitar-oriented instrumental prog. For the most part I enjoy the sound of the drums here. A good first effort with good sound and performances. I will give this one a 3.5 but will round it up to 4 stars.

Contemplation of Infinity
Take Me Far Away Heavy Prog

Review by rdtprog
Special Collaborator Prog Metal / Heavy Prog Team

3 stars This Russian plays some instrumental heavy prog rock that can go to the Progressive Metal in his most heavy parts. The music is driven mostly by the guitars of Dmitriy Kshanovskiy and Alexandr Mutin with viola parts and occasional piano, and it's never too heavy which gives to the music a nice atmosphere. There is a sense of uniformity throughout the songs, so it makes it difficult to choose a favorite track. The drums are also well recorded to go along with all others instruments. The compositions seem to have been constructed with repeated jams sessions just like the band wanted to let the music "take them far away". 3.5 stars
Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
