about

2021 remaster of the the original 2004 album. While making a Halloween Karda Estra playlist on Spotify at the end of 2020, I quickly became aware of how much better the newer Karda Estra tracks sounded than the earlier ones and how much my mastering had improved through the years. So I decided to remaster Voivode Dracula, an early album I am very proud of, giving it a sound that now hopefully does it justice.

'Wow' - The Dracula Society

'This is 'Dracula' as a completely emotional experience without dialogue or sight, the whole vigorous concoction distilled as a potent concentrate ... This a remarkable work.' Chris White, Hairless Heart Herald

'Warm glowing refined relaxing soothing dark angelic classical gothic beauty. Highly recommended yet again.' Sean Worrall, Organ

'...a unique chamber music which blends seamlessly electronics with the acoustic orchestral instruments, into a color-filled portrait, rich in dramatic flair and cinematic mood. ... There is nobody else in the prog field I can think of competing with Karda Estra, whose singular accomplishments deserve much wider support and recognition.' Expose

'a towering piece of music.' Kev Rowland, Feedback
