For The Love Of Gold
For Those About To Drown
Rising The Imperial
This band from Sweden formed in 1994 has not released an album since 2007's The Sum of no Evil this is another treat to the ears from this Progressive Rock band.
If you are a fan of YES or bands of similar sounds more importantly than that is the scope of the album where on the first Cd the shortest song is that of six minutes, the first song clocks in at twenty five minutes plus.
The playing of the instruments are so well orchestrated that this well oiled machine of a group play with such style and rhythmic precision that it is awe inspiring.As well as the vocals are so clear.
Pandemonium has a distorted voice singing with the band but the elements of this song has so much depth and sounds like they have been playing these songs for years.
Being a huge RUSH fan for so many years ever since I heard "All The World's A Stage" many years ago I have always had a fondness for this style and scope of music. This has a much different sound than that of RUSH, however the playing is just as fantastic as something from the trio.
Thank you for reading this
