51st Art Rock Show: Le survivant

Deze week stellen we Orion aan u voor, een prog rockband uit de omgeving van Parijs. De groep ontstaat op eind van de jaren zeventig en kent heel wat succes in eigen land. In juni 1980 valt de band uit elkaar. In 2011 komt de ommekeer en brengt een de groep een nieuwe plaat uit. Een derde en vierde CD volgen…

Prog Archives review: “With this latest jewel Orion probably produces his best album. This concept album looks like the previous one but gains in quality with more finesse and intensity compositions. The concept talks about current topics that concern us all because we are the main actors of the problems of our planet such as global warming, pollution , GMOs …

This opus is composed of 8 pieces including an instrumental in a jazzy style. Orion shows an exceptional musicality in this album, both in the compositions and in the committed texts. The arrangements are great and the invited musicians are particularly brilliant and are perfectly integrated and inspired. You can feel the influence of King Crimson or Pink Floyd but Orion has his own style that lies between all these groups.

With bands like Orion French progressive rock is doing very well. This disc listens from beginning to end without any reserve.”

Naast Orion met Le survivant hebben we deze week: Toe (Hear You), Tortoise (Standards), Lift To Experience (The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads), Spiritualized (Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space) & Swans (Children of God).
