Nimrod biography
Nimrod, a newcomer from Brisbane Australia, is the sole work of Kevin Walker who is a multi instrumentalist and specializes in guitar and various keyboards.

Walker previously worked with several bands, but struck out on his own in 2003. So far, "Songs & Signs" (released 2004) is his only release. As yet, Nimrod is not signed to a label.

This is progressive rock, with a latter day Pink Floyd influence. There are also some characteristics of symphonic prog. The main instrumentation is guitars and keyboards. Not all electronic either. His music presents some very nice passages with acoustic guitar, and piano.

An interview shed a bit of light. The name was inspired by a piece by Edward Elgar, from his "Enigma Variations. Bands of the '70s are cited as influences, most notably Pink Floyd, Moody Blues, King Crimson, and Barclay James Harvest.

Mr. Walker had this to say about the music., "Whilst being song based, the songs/melodies are good quality and do frequently morph into instrumental symphonic passages. The music is serious, and could be described as (maybe) thinking mans prog. Lyrically deep, with a vocal delivery which seems like a cross between Rogers Waters and David Gilmour, the music is obviously self biographical but, inevitably can be related universally to the experiences of most people." He sums up, "I want the music by Nimrod to be deep, and thought provoking. I hope that it has the power to transcend the mind and hopefully have a lasting effect ... on the listener."

I find it to be very reminiscent of the "Wall / Final Cut" era of Pink Floyd. It is somber, but not nearly as bleak. It is actually quite hopeful at times. There are some beautiful instumental passages, including lilting guitar, piano and strings. The Vocals are a Waters, Gilmour, and John Wetton hybrid. It has some pschedelic aspects, but that is not dominant. It smacks very close to new age at times, but some heavier electric guitar, and organ, put it in Art Rock territory.

Review by fang

4 stars I enjoy this album immensely...its quite simply, beautiful and moving. Kevin W is a very good creative songwriter and instrumentalist. After about 4 or 5 listens Ive realised there is a concept to this album, it is about the various Paths one can follow in life and some of the consequences of them. Yes, its deep but not (as the artist description says) bleak, that is except for the track, Dust & Dreams which evokes pictures of the aftermath of nuclear war, this song is also beautiful though, a coda is lovingly played and sang on acoustic piano, an ode to his lost sweetheart maybe? Theres plenty of acoustic guitar and piano as well as some heavy (Gilmouresque) guitar and synths, I detect mellotron on The World Tonight.. My personal favourite track is You Go You Way, reminicent of Floyds Empty Spaces, that is, in a similar mode... The music is Floydian (later era) but has its own personality. I got the album as a download at Mindawn, well worth the $7. Looking forward to the next Nimrod album.
