I didn't know Duffy left the easy swing jazz and is now singing in a prog band, to be more precisely, she is rumoured to have joined Finnish group Opus Symbiosis. She did take a new name, Christine Sten, but that voice is unmistakable. That voice also is the strong point of the group on the EP Mute, their second release after the debut album Opus Symbiosis released in 2009. At the same time it is so dominating it sometimes distracts from the music itself. That music turns out to be modern up-tempo progrock that is pretty good and might be compared to groups like Discipline and Pure Reason Revolution (although not as strong as that group yet).

I am curious what their second full album, to be recorded later this year, will bring us.
