Having recently released their newest EP Enigma Adamantine a month ago, we’re excited to team up with Canadian instrumental progressive band Illuminated Minerva (seriously, what a fantastic name!) for the premiere of their new video for “Wilder (Mother Goddess)”. The band draws influence from modern instrumental groups like Scale The Summit and Intronaut, making for a familiar yet rewarding listen.
You can also stream the band’s entire new EP below, so if you like what you hear, give it a spin! The really cool thing about this song, and band in particular, is that they’re quite good at distilling and sifting through their obvious influences (Intronaut, Tool, and Scale The Summit), while also managing to create a distinct identity. Not easy to do in a sea of like-minded bands where compositional and musical talent reigns supreme.
