Review by Moonstone

3 stars A promising debut.

I find this album very dark and it's got a lot of mood, but it lacks variation and real prog-chops. It's very much like Anekdoten, with heavy Mellotron and dramatic vocals. Sometimes the vocals are just fine, and sometimes it's not.

Like Anekdotens stuff, the songs have no distinct sound, they sound very similar, making it difficult to tell one song from another.

The guitar soloing is the highlight for me on the album, along with the Mellotron of course. It's difficult to pinpoint any of the songs as highlights really, so I'll just say that I like the album OK as a whole, and that I'm hoping for more diversity on their next release.

3 stars.

3 stars Having formed way back in 1999 it's taken Nordagust a long time to release their first album, In The Mist Of Morning coming out in 2010. The band come from Norway and their style of moody and atmospheric prog is inevitably going to draw comparisons with other Scandinavian bands like Anekdoten and Anglagard. In truth they don't particularly sound like these bands but would be nearer Anekdoten than Anglagard and share Anekdoten's heavy use of the Mellotron.

While I enjoy the album I do find that to a large extent, stylistically there's not a lot of musical variation between the ten compositions. The music throughout sticks to a sedate pace and is fairly simply structured. Overall it's pretty dark sounding, very moody and atmospheric with suitably angsty vocals, though I have to admit they grate a bit at times. Despite the lack of complexity, which even for a prog fan is not necessarily a bad thing, the music contains some haunting melodies that get under the skin and any band that wants to rely on such heavy use of the Mellotron is alright with me. Their music is equally defined by some searing guitar work which is perhaps the highlight of the album.

In all, In The Mist Of Morning while no doubt being a good album suffers from a lack of diversity which makes me wonder how the band can grow in the future without going off on a totally different tangent. I'll certainly be interested to see however and hope album number two doesn't take as long to arrive.

4 stars Norwegian outfit NORDAGUST was formed in 1999 and ever since has been actively scoring demo tapes. In 2010 the band landed a deal with its native label Karisma Records, and late in the fall the same year it made its official debut with the production "In the Mist of Morning".

If you tend to like the brooding atmospheres of acts like The 3rd And The Mortal and you love the sound of late 70's Pink Floyd, Nordagust has crafted a debut album that should appeal to you. While something of an acquired taste at times, the band's dark and distinct compositions have a unique touch to them that might be described as symphonic art rock of a kind well-suited to act as the soundtrack for The Book of Revelations or a fitting score for a movie documenting the apocalypse, and well worth checking out by those who find these descriptions tantalizing.

Review by toroddfuglesteg

3 stars Promising debut from this Norwegian band.

This album falls well within the label "nordic depressions". The tempo is sludgy and the music is both folky and symphonic.... with a slight doom metal edge. References are Sinkadus, Anekdoten, The Smiths and The Third And The Mortal. A hint of Motorpsycho can also be added here. The sound is pretty much sludgy doom metal like. But most of all; Nordagust sounds exactly like the Norwegian band they are.

The quality of their material is a bit variable. From the half decent to great. The title track is typical where it winds itself through the forest with an occasional thud and collision with the trees. The best song here is Mysterious Ways with it's multiple themes and long detours into folk rock, symphonic prog and metal.

The vocals are not perfect, but the instrumentation is pretty much what to expect from a nordic depression band. This album has some excellent guitar solos. There is no doubts that this band has something great going for them and they should really hone their skills in the next year. Nordagust may be the next big thing from Norway. This is indeed a very good debut album which has a couple of minor flaws. It is recommended to those who can take nordic depressions.

3.5 stars

3 stars Distinctive sound of the North.

Anglagard being the anvil on what's created the Norweigan sound, quickly followed by Sinkadus, Anekdoten and a few others; that approach is a dying genre these days.

Drenched in mellotron and Stratocaster solos, Nordagust is somewhat darker, no blackier than Sinkadus and such. Black atmosphere, black lyrics (pain, separation, crushed dreams, hate and other daily chit-chat) and so on. Not being the technical prodigy that was Anglagard (who is anyway?), Nordagust is throughoutly giving a run for your money with chilling lyrical fog and tragic melodies. A little rest can be heard in the track In the Woods, with a chirping creek and Anthony Phillips 12 strings style.

I do appreciate the moody heavyness, perfect for a day of rain or your regular Egyptian plague.

Yes, the end of the world has now a soundtrack.
