[Review] Chris Cameron – Relenteless EP

Chris Cameron is the drummer of the Australian Prog band Aronora, and on December 12 he released his first solo work. “Relenteless” is an EP composed of 2 tracks that mix influences ranging from Prog to Jazz. The “Relentleless” title track featuring Michael Mills and Morgan-Leigh Brown as a guest is a long epic of over 14 minutes. Jazzy and Neo Prog colors, with massive guitars, syncopated rhythms and an elaborate structure with a good synth solo in the central part. In the second part, the wind instruments enter which embellish the sound, an eclectic and good level track. “I’m done” is a more Jazz than Rock song with more experimental features, with a slow and intricate rhythm and wind arrangements. It ends with a more linear theme with piano, guitar and trumpet that intertwine. Good solo debut for an artist we already knew with the band Aronora. An elaborate and eclectic work where Jazz sounds marry Progressive ones.
