Band Review: Kozen

Kozen is a progressive rock band from Toronto.

I had originally thought I read hard rock, and it quickly became clear that was not the case.

While there are some effects that sound a little experimental, especially on Swimming to the Stars (B), the overall sound is pretty mellow. Based on that and the spiritual content, they reminded me of Afterglow (which is a real throwback, I know).

I enjoyed their most recent track, "Barricade", best. I think that has a stronger rock sensibility.

They are a good-hearted band, recently taking time on their space to appreciate other musicians. I do think they might be more successful by emphasizing the spiritual content more, as there are audiences that specifically look for that.
