Aziola Cry
CD Reviews
Review by Gary Hill
If you like instrumental prog in the style of Djam Karet, but would like to hear that sound carried out with a bit more metal to it, then Aziola Cry is the band for you. These guys do have quite a bit in common with that other band, but they also share musical textures with Rush, Dream Theater and some metal bands.
Ghost Conversations
Review by Julie Knispel
Aziola Cry is an instrumental trio from Chicago consisting of Chapman Stick, guitar, and drums. Their music is dark, unrelenting and complex, drawing as strongly from first generation progressive artists (such as King Crimson) as from today’s practitioners (Tool).
Concert Reviews
Aziola Cry - Live at M.A.R.S., June 2007
Review by Josh Turner
With the inclusion of Jason Blake’s Chapman Stick, the music sounded a bit like OSI, Gordan Knot, or The Tony Levin Band. The drums were steady and precise, coming by way of Tom Murray. Mike Milaniak’s guitar, conversely, had a nice patchy tone.

Aziola Cry - Live in Madison, WI, June, 2007
Review by Josh Turner
Aziola Cry was the in-between band this night. From what I heard and saw, they should have been the headliner.
