ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Straight Circles

Hai Meirzadh's debut album, offers a very personal outlook about Progressive Rock and music composition in general. Working with the virtuoso drummer and percussionist Yatziv Caspi and recording engineer and drummer Yaron ben Alexander, Hai has obtained a diverse combination of styles and sounds, while maintaining his own signatory style.

This CD was composed, arranged, mixed and mastered entirely by Hai Meirzadh.


Hai Meirzadh
Hai Meirzadh (Israel, 1983) is a pianist, keyboardist and a gifted composer, an undergrad student of the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance.


Playing the piano since the age of 8 and writing music since the age of 15 (Autodidact), Hai was influenced by a variety of musical genres, from Rock and Metal bands of the 60s and onward, through Jazz and Fusion music later on.


At the age of 17, Hai was introduced to the world of Progressive Rock and exposed to bands such as Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Symphony X and artists such as Jordan Rudess, Steve Vai, Steve Morse and many more. Hai realized that this was a form of music through-which he could relate his own personal style, combining some of the genres he liked so much together.


In addition to Prog. Rock, Hai is writing Conceptual Chamber Music and plans to work as a composer in the film industry at the next stage of his career.

Above-average Prog-Metal Talent
If you love Planet-X, Derek Sherinian's work and the Liquid Tension Experiment - you should really listen to this one. Brilliant (yes, brilliant) compositions combined with first-rate arrangements - and all done by two people: Hai the keyboard wizard and his virtuoso drummer Yatziv Caspi. Together they storm through eight energetic tracks with no second to waste. Great fun! I just love this album.

Hai Meirzadh – ”Straight Circles” – very good progressive rock!
This is a progressive CD you ought to check out. All compositions and arrangements, all instruments besides acoustic drums and percussion instruments are played by Hai Meirzadh. On drums and percussion instruments he’s got Yatziv Caspi and Yaron Ben Alexander to help him out. The CD has become very successful. The sound and production is good and Hai Meirzadh plays all instruments in a stunning way. Most songs are performed with extraordinary virtuosity. Hai Meirzadh who was born in Israel in 1983 is influenced by bands like Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Symphony X and artists such as Jordan Rudess, Steve Vai, and Steve Morse. This is easy to hear when you’re listening to “Straight Circles”
If you like good progressive rock, I will certainly recommend this CD. The only thing I’d point my finger at, is that the CD only has a playing time of about 35 minutes. A STRONG 4 STAR!
