34th Art Rock Show: Nemrud
In de tweede helft van 2008 werd in Istanbul (Turkije) door zander en gitarist Mert Göçay progressieve rock band Nemrud opgericht. De groep treedt in de voetsporen van Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Eloy, Camel en Yes.
Prog Archives review: ” This album follows the same space rock model as Nemrud’s previous albums Ritual and Journey of The Shaman, but shows a great deal more confidence on the part of the band. Nemrud’s career is dominated by concept albums with a somewhat gentle space rock vibe. There is a concept here to tell us their own creation story. This is hard psych to be sure. Drums kicks scream through walls of distortion and the guitars are turned up to eleven.
Levent Candas, the band’s new bassist, might enjoy some of the credit for them tightening up their act, since the rhythm section this time around attains the compelling, hypnotic intensity that the likes of Hawkwind were enjoying at the time. In all though, a superb collection of tracks, and certainly one of Nemrud’s finest albums. Pink Floyd and Camel influences are undeniable, and the band make no attempt to disguise them. There are though some majestic sounds and fine compositions here. Nemrud easly deserve 5 stars without question, recommended not only for Nemrud fans but for those who listen to good spacey progressive music in general. Excellent.”
