3 stars A key band in the development of prog rock in Norway, Host can be a northern version of Uriah Heep's heavy progressive sound. The compositions easily catch the aggressive, rhythmical "incisive" guitar sections of heavy metal, punctuated by typical "rapid" solos of the genre. The progressive section comes from interludes, alternative acoustic arrangements; folk instruments as flute...Vintage organ parts are added to enrich the musical vocabulary of the band. The very high pitch, screaming vocals of the singer is not without reminding me Bruce Dickinson's voice, rather insupportable. However the compositions provided by the ensemble are enough complex and varied to maintain the attention of the listener. Head bangers will love it! For others it's an interesting listening but absolutely not a prog masterpiece, sorry!
