Here´s another fine band from the great Freia Music, again a band I didnt know of. This four piece progband are self proclaimed inspired of Porcupine Tree (mid period me thinks), Pineapple Thief but also Anathema, one can certainly hear that in sequences here and there.
That said, they really have some musical ideas of their own and they could become huge in the future. When I say could, I feel that there are much more to them than displayed here!
They have a certain complexity as in the epics: "Hanging In The Balance" & " Beautiful Sunrise" but also their instrumental knowledge shines through here and there in the heavier passages, mind you they also have moments of sheer beauty as in the semi acoustic : "Ghost".
Must mention the great (Steven Wilson like) vocal harmonies that pops up here and there.
So this second album from these fine musicians shows real promise, third strike could prove to be their masterpiece!!
So if you were at all intrigued with my sentences above, then this fine band might just be for you!? Give em a whirl why dont you?
I like them! You might too!
