ROCK: Progressive Rock, ROCK: Instrumental Rock
"It is a mixture of Western metal and Middle Eastern/Oriental melodies and scales that give Arashk a heavy gritty sound with this beautiful overlay of music most Westerners are hardly familiar with."
Christy Claxton, "Stave Magazine"
"This is an impressive debut of instrumental, compositionally strong, electric guitar driven progressive rock music. We hear great fuzz guitars, and a very intelligent use of melody with rhythmical changes, with compositions in Persian & other scales. There are various mood changes and different evolutions, and is built up by rich subtleties."
Gerald Van Waes, the Radioshow "PSYCHE VAN HET FOLK"
ARASHK established at 2001 in Tehran, Iran as a hard/progressive rock band. Band members are Salim Ghazi Saeedi on Guitars, Keyboards & Synthesizers; Pooyan Khajavi on Guitars & Vocals, Shahram Khosraviani on Drums. The band is active both on instrumental pure progressive stuff as well as vocalized hard rock music.
This band has prepared three albums till now. The first album, Abrahadabra, an instrumental blend, represents the Iranian look toward progressive rock music. However that it is composed in occidental instrumentation, may could uncover the oriental origin of its composer in background. This album has now put on sale on band''s website. The second album, Sovereign, is also instrumental and this time the possibilities of electronic music in companion with modern hard-rock instrumentation is being shown. This album is currently being under mastering process. The third album, Roar, is a vocalized hard-rock/metal blend which recites a "message toward every artificial bounds and bindings". Illusions which are being surpassed by the aid of new millennium technology.
