Art Rock Show – Toki No Kaze (Week 25)

Bassist Marco Bernard, drummer Kimmo Pörsti en zanger, violist en fluitist Steve Unruh vormen de harde kern van The Samurai Of Prog, een band binnen ons geliefde genre. De één is een in Finland wonende Italiaan, de ander een rasechte Fin en nummer drie woont in de Verenigde Staten. Samen met een (groot) aantal gastmuzikanten maken ze symfonische rock in de stijl van de jaren zeventig.

Prog Archives review: “This album is truly magical and it’s an invitation for a fantastic musical journey, it’s so rich in visual soundscapes and has all the elements to be considered a masterpiece! The care and preoccupation of the band members for the visual effect and impact of the album is obvious! (…)

Alex Driessen van Prog Wereld: “Welnu, dat langverwachte album is zojuist uitgekomen en de eerste indrukken bevestigen dat aan de hoge verwachtingen voldaan gaat worden. Het nieuwe werk is getiteld “Grand Tour” en het betreft hier een semi-conceptalbum. Geïnspireerd door de 17e en 18e-eeuwse gewoonte van de Grand Tour, waar welgestelde jonge mannen en vrouwen op reis gingen om hun geest te verruimen, bevat het nieuwe album van Big Big Train negen nummers, bijna vijfenzeventig minuten muziek van hoogstaande kwaliteit, dat zich afspeelt in verre landen en daarbuiten. Een soort van grote rondreis voor het nageslacht van de rijke aristocratie.… Read more...
