Currently based in the New England area, five-piece progressive rock band Mavara are originally from Tehran, serving as one of the area’s only globally recognized rock and metal acts—impressive in and of itself.
Next week, the group will independently release a brand new, 10-track album, titled Consciousness. Packed with influences ranging from the likes of Pink Floyd to modern progressive metal, the album traverses several ideas and sounds and is virtually impossible to fully unravel and appreciate with just one listen. Luckily, it’ll have you coming back for more. Each new experience allows for opportunities to pick up on nuances and intricate details weaved into the mix that might have passed you by on your first go-around.
You can journey through Mavara’s Consciousness in its entirety below before the official release on Monday, September 11.
