3 stars Morild from Norway is a quite unknown band from newer generation of prog rock bands that releases one album untill now in 2010 named Time to rest. 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. This is a double album, a courageus thing to have right from the dubute with almost 2 hours of music. This 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. The music is warm well presented with some very nice passages, maybe sometimes to mellow for my taste but not bad at all. Flute is very well integrated in the melancholical sound, quite typical for scandinavian bands. The keyboards and specialy the guitar have an importnad role here and combined with warm voice of John Anders Troset this album is ok, good no doubt. The longer pieces are the most intresting ones, mostly on first CD, opening track All I wanted and Circus are the best Morild can offer here. A very beautiful full of warm arrangements is the ballad Blackbird's Lullaby. The second CD is in same vein as first, maybe little less convinceing in some parts but never the less ok most of the time. Time to rest 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 second release, if there will be one in the near future. 3 stars, a fairly good album with some ok and pleasent moments overall.
