The Ironic Divide

blox Sometimes you (I) strike gold, this is such an album. You take one part King Crimson, one part Liquid Tension Experiment and a scoop of TOOL blend it all and there you have it, Aziola Cry. It's beyond my comprehension they're not yet recognised as one of the better instrumental rock bands in the world!

Phillip Cruikshank I just purchased it. And, will let ya know later. We'll, it's later now! I have the 21:05 epic composition on repeat. I have always enjoyed the progressive rock format of song writing. This is exceptional. Give it a listen.

And Cowards 09:36


Illinois based instrumental trio AZIOLA CRY is Jason Blake on Warr Guitar, Mike Milaniak on guitar, and Tommy Murray on drums. The trio released their debut album, Ellipsis, in 2005, followed by Ghost Conversations in 2007. The group has performed with bands such as Behold… The Arctopus, Don Caballero, Tiles, Far Corner, and others, while appearing at progressive rock festivals including M.A.R.S. Fest and more.

Closing a nearly fourteen-year gap between albums, 2021 sees the return of AZIOLA CRY as the band prepares to release their most crucial release yet. The Ironic Divide features four songs telling the story of one person’s final descent. There are two types of people in this world. There are those who do good for others and make a positive contribution to society in some way. Then, there are those who do evil and hurt fellow humans. There is no rationale behind their behavior. They are cowards. This is their story.

Mixed by Steven Gillis at Transient Sound and mastered by Ted Jensen (Lamb of God, Gojira), the forty-eight-minute album is the band’s heaviest and most intricate work yet.
