Walking Through Walls is the second studio release from Pravda, an instrumental quarted hailing from the Pacific Northwest. Their sound is reminiscent of bands like Rush, but with an occasionally looser, jam influenced tinge to it.
“Edge Of Fire” opens the album with a bang, with tightly synchronized guitars, drums and bass creating an unrelenting propulsion of sound. K.C. Thomsen’s keyboards add some nice seasoning to what would otherwise be a fairly straightforward rock instrumental. The song presents a band unafraid to mix things up, with smooth tempo changes and shifts in mood, swinging from the heavy introductory section to a slower, spacey movement reminiscent of Pink Floyd.
“Giving Chase” offers an opportunity to experience another side of the band, with strummed acoustic guitars and hand percussion laid overtop a warm bass line. There’s a slight Eastern tinge to the piece that evokes comparison to some of Jimmy Page’s acoustic instrumentals; overall, the piece is one of the highlights on the album. According to the liner notes, all instruments on this piece are played by guitarist Chris Holman; 3 other solo tracks are included on this album, one by each of the band’s members.
The reverie created by “Giving Chase” is demolished by the powerful “Excursion,” a heavy rocker with loads of Thomsen keyboards and some very crunchy rhythm guitar courtesy of Chris Holman. The song is another example of the band’s use of contrasts; heavy sections interspersed with more laid back, quieter movements. This use of contrast keeps things interesting, and makes for an enjoyable active listen. “Lhasapsodic” follows, and the Rush influences are very strong here; Holman’s guitar often sounds eerily like Alex Lifeson’s tone on Rush’s 1990’s albums. The closest thing to vocals also features on this piece, as the opening includes dog barks (perhaps the lhasa apso implied in the song title?).

Progressive Rock & Progressive Metal - E - Zine

Pravda play a emotional music that is beautiful and refined with a sumptuous ins
Pravda is a new generation in Progressive Rock outfit hailing from the Pacific Northwest, U.S.A. The group consisting of veterans of the Austin, Orlando and Northwest music scenes, is realy to take on the musical enclaves of corporate rock, with a bold and invigorating sound, where their sound combines the best of Old & New Progressive Rock with some touchs of Jazz adding the power of Progressive Metal. Pravda is a reunion of talented musicians play some seriously well-thought out Progressive Rock music, in fact, we are talking about the perfect combination from Dave Thomas with 18 years experience as a live and studio drummer and a veteran of the Austin Texas & Northwest music scenes, K.C. Thomsen a B.M. Music Theory & Composition BSU, (U of U) another veteran of the Northwest music scene and Tom Svanoe over 22 years experience as a touring and studio musician as well as a jingle writer across the country also as a classical trained at the Chicago Conservatory of Music. "Walking Through Walls" is the second work from this powerful and energetic band, of course Pravda are very much a group of the modern age, somewhere between the 1970 ‘s and the third millenium, with an unique charisma, where we can listen a mixture of many different musical influences. The instrumental prowess on the this album is top notch, where the guitar, bass and drums playing are very reminiscent from famous bands as "Kansas" and "Rush", including lot of intricate keyboards and grandiose musical passages, reminding me "Yes" and "Rush", in fact Pravda play a emotional music that is beautiful and refined with a sumptuous instrumentation. Listen all tracks, my favourite songs are: "Edge of Fire", "After The Deluge" and "Ethereal" (they are the best), and the sensational "Excursion", "Lhasapsodic", "Walking Through Walls" and "At The Zoo". Followers of imaginative Progressive Rock should definitely pay attention to this release. "Walking Through Walls" contains 10 good tracks and was released by Sonus West Records, recorded at Sonus West & Sonus East Studios from August 05 to April 06, recorded, engineered, mixed and mastered by Thomsen and Thomas. The musicians on Pravda are: K.C. Thomsen - Keyboards & Vocals, Tom Svanoe - Bass & Guitar, Dave Thomas - Drums & Vocals and as a Guest Musician: Chris Holman - Guitars. Amazing, brilliant and an indispensable work, highly recommendable... (Comments by Carlos Vaz)

I really enjoyed Giving Chase and Ethereal. In Giving Chase I like the way the drums are soft in the background and the way the guitar is played. I love the mellowness of how Ethereal starts and then gets you revved up as the song continues. Sonia has great potential, but seems like it is missing something. Yatazza though short, has the Pink Floyd sound that I enjoy.
