5 stars This is it, I guess. One of the most unique and mythical bands out of Sweden, Änglagård, transforms into All Traps on Earth. Well, not completely. Änglagård founding member and guitarist Johan Brand formed All Traps on Earth in a different line-up with Thomas Johnson (keyboards) and Erik Hammarstörm (drummer / percussionist) both from Änglagård as well. To fulfill this quartet band, Miranda Brand, daughter of Johan, joins on vocals. And with that said, it works brilliantly. It not only brings a fresh wind in the progressive landscape, it delivers in a way that it should be. Key factor for this new band is the addition of zeuhl like in the opener All Traps on Earth and jazz like in Magmatic Warning and the closing track Bortglömda Gårdar. The symphonic folk elements from Änglagård has been pushed back a little bit more. During "A Drop of Light", hard bombastic sounds and dreamy passages in combination with a range of gorgeous wind instrumentations and some incredible vocals are passing by. As a whole, this is a fantastic epic journey to go through that, most likely, will not disappoint. If a band is able to experiment in that kind of level, then, there's just nothing more to say. Just enjoy this masterpiece of progressive rock. Highly recommended. Mark my words!
