Prog Reviewer
3 stars Morild from Norway is a quite unknown band from newer generation of prog rock bands that releases two albums untill now in 2010 named Time to rest and in 2013 Aves. The band was formed around Nils Larsen, Alexander Holand Salgado and Odd-Roar Bakken in 2004 all 3 members coming from another prog rock band from Norway - Adventure.

Aves is not an easy listning, at least at first spin, but the band manage to come with a pleasent symphonic prog release remind me a lot of Camel meets The Flower Kings and others and aswell have same attitude and atmosphere as previous album, also some folk moments remind me of Kerrs Pink. The music is warm, elaborated , smells of mid to late '70s , well presented with some very nice passages, maybe sometimes to mellow for my taste but not bad at all. Lots of instrumental passages, 2 of the pieces are clocking above 20 min each. Flute is very well integrated in the melancholical sound, quite typical for scandinavian bands. The keyboards and specialy the guitar have an important role here and combined with warm voice of John Anders Troset this album is ok, good no doubt.

Avesd is not an exceptional album by any means but features nice and enjoyble symphonic prog that can be tolerated by any prog rock listner. A bright star in Norway prog scene from today, realy curious how will sound the third release, if there will be one in the near future. 3 stars, a fairly good album with some ok and pleasent moments overall.
