Review by Rivertree
4 stars AMGALA TEMPLE is composed of three educated musicians from Oslo, the capital of Norway. Multi-instrumentalist Lars Horntveth is best known for playing with the band Jaga Jazzist, responsible for bass, keyboards and other duties here. Furthermore welcome guitarist Amund Maarud, being underway in blues(!) rock territories so far, what I could research. And finally drummer Gard Nilssen, member of the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. The trio is venturing into rather new sonic landscapes, stylistically this is hard to pigeonhole. Due to Maarud's guitar playing and Horntveth's synthesizer patterns a strong psychedelic respectively spacey spirit is applicable. Another trademark is the jazzy vibe throughout which can't be denied of course.

Hence overall this is a mix of impressions which particularly will come close to other nordic bands like Causa Sui, Kaukasus, Elephant9. Hereby, based on a pre-defined structure in each case, the songs are showing proper jamming qualities too. Fleet Ballistic Missile Submarine initially comes like a spacey warm-up, but turns into a driving and very powerful direction later on. No filler. 'Invisible Airships' is a rounded affair, produced with heart and care. I really adore the sensitive guitar playing. Now I have a feeling, eh, indeed I'm quite sure, that my top album list for the year 2018 won't suffice with less than 50 spots at the minimum. Boy! Another very entertaining album. The chemistry is right, hopefully we will hear more from this trio, better sooner than later.
