Art Rock Show – Alduorka (Week 19)

Het Noorse project Breidablik is sinds 2017 actief, en heeft in die vijf jaar één debuutalbum op haar actief. Alduorka is de meest recente productie van dit project, en kwam in februari op de markt.

Progmessor review: “It doesn’t take too many seconds before you get to grips with the type of music explored by this project. Progressive electronic music is the name of the game here, complete with sequencers and a wide array of keyboards and synthesizers. Perhaps more important, however, is the inclusion of bass, guitars and real drums to the proceedings. Which does add a bit more character to the material here. The greater majority of the compositions stay true to the electronic progressive idioms here however, with sequencers setting the pace and the synthesizer and keyboard sounds surging and fluctuating pretty much as you would expect them to do. (…)

The use of guitars, bass and drums adds a bit more of an organic and warmer quality to the following compositions, to a lesser or greater extent, with a few of these creations striking me as being perhaps just as close to the ambient excursions of a band like Hawkwind as they are to German pioneers such as Tangerine Dream. (…)

Breidablik as of 2022 strikes me as a band that have gained a fair degree of expertise in several related fields of music, with progressive electronic music, ambient music and space rock arguably the top three of those fields in terms of mastering the form. Those who have an interest in a band blending these three types of music and alternating between sticking to traditions and having a playful go at being a bit more expressive should find this album to be quite the fun production to get to know better I suspect.”
