Hungarian musical artist Daniel Csernei(more known as Koryan Daniel Csernei) is an observer and story teller of the human condition.He takes two identities -as the one who revives his personal experiences and sculp them through the process of poetry and music, and then as someone who has a keen eye of a surgeon. Combine those with the musical eloquence of composers from bygone days, and you got a musical force to be reckoned with. I think he is the best his country has to offer today. Listen to the EP below this entry and you’ll know what I mean.

The songs in Emberibb Maszk ( there are 5 songs and two of them are instrumentals)  are in Hungarian and you might need Google translate to decipher their lines. But I have been talking to him for a few years now and he would explain the process and also the meaning behind the songs. Upon hearing his tunes, the prose becomes secondary as the melody takes center stage-at least that is how it always works for me when I listen to music. And when you let the melody speak, you can get an idea that he is continuously influenced by Hard-Rock, Post-grunge and symphonic metal.

Emberibb Maszk is about the breakdown of humanity, the loss of values and hope. It is an elegy for things that could never be. But it is also a please for things that haven’t happened yet, if we can help it. There are symphonic tracks as in the case of the Intro bearing that mournful melody. Other songs are aggressive like the title track which is definitely a tune that has a global appeal in terms of style and craft. It is something that radio stations will pick up if more people get to hear it and recommend it. My personal favourite is Álmodj which means Dream in English. Csernei has a textured way of composing songs that they border on the symphonic. Adding piano over thundering drums, soft choral voices and electronic strings. Simply fascinating!

You can download Emberibb Maszk for free via SoundCloud. According to Csernei, this is an EP of things to come. I am sure what ever musical output he makes in the future, will be worth the anticipation. This EP proves his amazing talent for songwriting and performing. Just to show how important he is, I posted this entry on my Facebook status :

I have been contemplating if I would still continue as a music blogger since they indie landscaped has changed. Musicians now run their own blogs and they now do their own interviews. 

They are self-suffecient and I don’t see my relevance in the big picture. I’ve also been maintaining a ‘health and fitness’ blog for a year now and also another one devoted to tech. The latter has been getting positive responses from the 15 to 20 age group and that is something that I’ve always wanted! 

But today, while I was chatting with Daniel, he told me about his new EP. I met him a few years ago and he’s such a kind and open fella. We clicked and the rest is history. He has this impeccable taste for detail and this way of playing borders on the Classical/Romantic period of music. Yes he plays everything here. The guitars, the bass section, the drums and they midi keys. He also got himself a new keyboard which he will be using in his future recording. 

I actually referenced composer Franz Liszt, a composer from his own country. So this is one of those days when you are about to throw the towel and something unexpected happens. And yes I also got another recommendation from an American pal about a new Scandinavian artist. Life indeed plays tricks on your when you are about to let go. 

So I encourage you to check his music out, download it from Soundcloud(it is for free) and share it to your friends. I think he is the best that his country can offer today.


Moments In Memory (Improved Version) By: Athuja

This band is cooking something delicious. But you have to be patient and make sure you coax lead vocalist Peter Chains into singing more and showcasing his amazing voice. They are from Windsor Canada. Band members are:

Moments in Memory is a sexy track that sounds like it came out of a posh cafe. I love it and I hope they can come up with a proper EP or album. Right now they are uploading and refining their demos(as you can see by the titles).

Chad Paquet and the nifty tunes. Sometimes it is great to take a break from life and examine the bigger picture. A few years ago, Canadian musician Chad Paquet was putting an album together. He had everything figured out only to change his game plan. Perhaps this applies to all of us. Nothing is what it seems. Things can happen. Sometimes you invest your time and effort on a wrong person. Sometimes the situation doesn’t work. All it takes is a blind leap of faith and believe that things will work out in the end. These tracks posted on his myspace page reflect the things be had attained as a human being and as an artist. His instrumentals are wrapped in jaw dropping complexities. Pretty Glenn and Sometime in Smarchie’s are original compositions I heard few years back before his accident, which horribly rendered him incapacitated for more than a year. He is more of a jazz guy but his love for rock tunes makes his music eclectic. He is trying to collaborate with local vocalists who will sing his tunes. 20140709-103738-38258579.jpg 20140709-103738-38258631.jpg 20140709-103738-38258508.jpg
