ScienceNV Set to Bring Forth "The Carnage at El Samij"
"The Carnage at El Samij" is the latest single for San Francisco based band ScienceNV. On their latest album the song is one movement of an epic piece bearing the title, "Roderick's Tale."
Headquartered in San Francisco, California, ScienceNV was formed in 2005 by Larry Jay Davis (guitar and bass guitar), David Graves (keyboards), Jim Henriques (guitar and keyboards) and Rich Kallet (drums). ScienceNV released their debut album, Really Loud Noises in 2008. They followed that up with Pacific Circumstances in 2010. The Last Album Before the End of Time was released in 2013. 2018 has seen the release of The Quest for Prester John Volume One and The Quest for Prester John Volume Two.
Their latest is actually a double disc concept album. It might seem a bit unusual, but the two parts of the set were released a few months apart. There is a lot more information about the two-fer of The Quest for Prester John Volume One and The Quest for Prester John Volume Two including notes and credits to found at ScienceNV.com.
Critics have been showing their love for both discs. Jason Hillenburg at Growing Old With Rock and Roll said this, "Science NV has always stood out as a feast for devoted progressive rock fans. Their latest release, a two volume set entitled The Quest for Prester John, reaffirms their status as one of the more forward thinking practitioners of the style working today and expands their conceptual and musical ambitions in a breathtaking way."
At Mondo Music Media, Toering called Volume Two, "a killer album that follows an equally remarkable effort on the first volume." Jerry Lucky (at The Progressive Rock Files) said this of the second volume, "The Quest for Prester John – Volume 2 is a musical journey of intoxicating epic-scale Prog that delivers an "E" ticket ride."
