Symphonic Prog

From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars The Norwegian group Morild's second effort "Aves" from 2013 proves that it's still possible to do great symphonic music nowadays and I am allways so happy when I get new good prog music from ProgArchives. This great and luxous prog music from my neighbour country i west was a pleasent experience.

Morild is an old style symphonic band with long and varied compositions played with sacred keyboards, wonderful flute, joking bass, drums and guitar. The record has just six tracks but is has a wide length. If you listen you'll directly get the greatness in the first song "The Patient Fisher" where the bass, flute and vocals are the best ingredients. The albums highlight is though "Wildflower" a long and intriguing piece which shows a lot of the band's posibilities. I would say that track is wonderful and totally great. "Labour day" has excellent instrument playing and a huge melody. "Waiting for the Ferry, Par 1 & 2" doesn't make me disappointed either. Morild has, really, almost everything to make the best progressive rock and this could have been a masterpiece if....

the vocals hadn't been false. The vocalist has a strong, emotional and handsome voice, but it disturbs me on many places that he sings out of tune. A big part of the music is instrumental so the problem isn't morbid. I have just another little problem: Why do they have the songs "Time river" and "Frost gloves" on the record. These tracks are bad! With its problems this record still is fantastic and less than four stars would be a crime. The stars aren't so strong but they're there.

All tracks: "Wildflower" (10/10), "The Patient Fisher" (8/10), "Labour day"(8/10), "Waiting for the Ferry"(8/10), "Time river"(4/10), "Frost Gloves"(4/10)= 3,5 = 4
