Finally they are here, one of the most exiting new Norwegian prog bands

 

They are not traditionally prog, but they sure have picked some influences which are prog

 

Fans of Avant prog, prog folk, eclectic prog and crossover should give their two albums a spin, they will be happily suprissed

 

if you want to listen to som fun energic bright prog with stunning instrumental interplay this is the band for you,

 

To say it like this Zappa would probably have liked them, and the Shulmans would as well bough their knees in awe.

 

here is the proof of their PA inclusion

they are unique in th realm of prog

I listened to parts of their debut streaming on their site and liked it a lot. E-mailed the band and will be buying a copy from them when they reply to my e-mail Smile

I'll review Songs From a Solitary Home when I have listened to it more.

Also, Dance with the Cookieman is stuck in my head right now. Awesome track Big smile

Definitely a factor of their music that sets them apart from a lot of prog bands - they're songs can get stuck in your head after just one listen. LOL

I listened to The Age of Paranoia and didn't like the vocals. Is that a good representation of the vocals on the whole album?
