Peter Jones "Musically varied" is sometimes a term that's hard to apply to what is still a damn solid rocker of an album but it's very apt here. Whilst guitar-lead, with tight drumming throughout (I guess that's what caught my ear), the additional instrumentation is used very effectively. The production is great, too. Favorite track: Cromlech.

Josie75 I love this kind of music. The first record "The outer planes" was so great. I was very happy, that Mistral cames out. It´s wonderful record with much harder riffs! Absolutly great music! Favorite track: Mistral I.

A COSMIC TRAIL is an instrumental band that composes haunting and outstanding music influenced by elements from rock, prog, metal, jazz, folk and soundtracks. Combined and interweaved with beautiful melodies, stirring rhythms and lots of twists and changes all this creates a very unique and distinctive atmosphere. There's absolutely no room for typical post rock clichés in this band!

According to the motto musical barriers are there to tear them down A COSMIC TRAIL came out of nowhere and released their debut "The Outer Planes" in 2010. The album was sent to a small number of exclusive magazines. Reviews were overwhelming! "The Outer Planes" became a no-brainer and enjoyed popularity in all musical styles. The CD is completely sold out in the meantime!

Two years of intense songwriting sessions resulted in the new album "II: Mistral".
A COSMIC TRAIL worked on every little detail in the arrangements but still there's enough space for improvisation in the new tracks.
With the addition of drummer Klaus Engl (7for4) the new album sounds more rhythmic, organic and even more diversified. A COSMIC TRAIL kept their sound and style but are eager for constant progression and the urge to discover new musical territories.

Their slogan widescreen cinema for your ears is still true!
"II: Mistral" is a listening experience you won't often find in these days.
The album will be released in spring 2013 as CD and in limited white vinyl with gatefold cover + download code.
