The best kept secret in music



"It's hard to believe that "Ellipsis" is the first effort of its creators. This is a varied album, delivered with taste and deliberate confidence. Highly impressive!" - Vitaly Menshikov


"Ellipsis" is a quite monumental album, the work of high-quality instrumental techno-prog Metal. I listened to it almost without drawing breath." - Vasiliy Zavorochaev

"Babyblaue Seiten"

"In the last years, I have rarely heard a debut album as convincing." - Dennis Egbers

"The Dutch Progressive Rock Page"

"...this is an intriguing and encouraging debut..." - Tom De Val


"...with Ellipsis, Aziola Cry have produced an original piece of work. There's not a dull moment on this CD... a very interesting album indeed." - Marc Roy

"Music Street Journal"

" the end the ride has been so captivating that you'll find yourself ready to start it all over again." - Gary Hill

"Progressive Ears"

"Aziola Cry have created a solid and highly worthy debut that will likely appeal to fans who like adventurous and artistic music with a heavy rock slant" - Sputnik


"I really don’t hear a weakness in this debut, in fact it’s one of the better all instrumental debuts I’ve heard in years. I think the heavy sound makes Ellipsis something more of a product of today’s musical society but Aziola Cry counterbalances that element with atmospheric and acoustic sounds without losing any of it’s compositional strength. To me this makes it, dare I say timeless." - Ron Fuchs

"Dead Earnest"

"...seriously good, forceful, well composed and arranged instrumental music, superbly produced, that will give great pleasure if you want it on the meaty side." - Andy Garibaldi

Feeling a bit camera shy


Aziola Cry is an instrumental progressive rock trio from Chicago whose complex and powerful songs keep the listener guessing with countless time-signature changes and moody tempo shifts. Influenced by works of King Crimson and Tool, the band spent the first year of their existence writing and refining their sound. The result of their hard work is a new twist on progressive rock.

Although each musician adds an invaluable component, it is the vision of Jason Blake that is the catalyst for the music. “I set out to create music that was challenging to play, yet accessible to the listener,” explains Jason. What emerged was “Ellipsis”, an eight-song showcase of well crafted songs that interconnect with each other to tell a dark tale without words. "This album follows a story of something being missing from your life," describes Jason. "That something can be any number of things and is different for everybody who listens."
