The group is a representative of classical progressive rock and is often compared to Emerson Lake and Palmer - the most famous band of this genre. The musicians adopted compositions of G. F. Händel ("See The Conqu'ring Hero Comes") and Edward Grieg. Undoubtedly, the best one is 15-minutes "Rockin' Edward" based on "Per Gynt Suite".
