43rd Art Rock Show: Legends of the Shires

Threshold vertoeft al sinds 1988 in de hoogste regionen van de Britse Progressieve Metal scene. De band wordt vaak in één adem vernoemd met bijvoorbeeld Dream Theater of Symphony X. In de muziek van Threshold horen we ook invloeden van Pink Floyd, Yes , etc…

Maartijn Kap van Ragherrie: “Nu is Threshold nooit echt een band geweest die je een kort album voorschotelde: alle albums hebben immers bijna een uur speeltijd. Maar met het nieuwe (dubbel)album krijg je maar liefst 82 minuten aan muziek verpakt in 14 songs. Qua kwantiteit dus in ieder geval al waar voor je geld. (…)

Het album is voorzien van een smaakvolle hoes die ontworpen is door de Russische kunstenaar Elena. Het schreeuwt prog en bandlid West zegt dat het hem herinnert aan klassieke prog albums van de 20e eeuw.… Read more...

42nd Art Rock Show: Jord

Deze week progressieve rock uit de bossen van Noorwegen… Fans van Änglagård, Wobbler en Tusmørke zullen zich direct thuis voelen. Symfonische rock met folk randje dus. Ook al bestaat de band nog geen drie jaar, het resultaat klinkt al heel goed.

Prog Archives Review: “The music is the same as before: in the Änglagård, Wobbler, Tusmørke and Sinkadus vein. “Le Meg Forsvinne!” is another one of those Solina String Ensemble-lead pieces similar in vein to “Solina, Min Dronning”, it’s clear Oftung wanted to record a very similar song. Once again, in the vein of late ’70s German prog bands like Eloy or Novalis, there’s a brief ELP-like organ break before going back into that late ’70s German space prog vein.

“Postludium” is very different from the rest of the album as it’s firmly in the vein of Breidablik, I wouldn’t doubt Breidablik was influencing Oftung.… Read more...
