3 stars Does effect the weather music? Well, in sunny tropical atmospheres the music is often cheerful with propulsive rhythms but in rainy and cold Skandinavia I notice many bands that play dark music with slow and compelling rhythms. Take for example this fourth studio album by Norwegian band Thule: listening to the 12 compositions you feel the cold and the rain and you start to feel quite melancholical, what a dark music but I was told during my honeymoon in West-Norway that most of the time it is dark, cold and rainy in Norway so you can conclude that Thule succeeded to translate their climate perfectly into the music! The sound has echoes from spacey Pink Floyd and Porcupine Tree featuring soaring keyboards and emotional guitarplay with some biting guitar runs. At other moments the music is more dynamic and propulsive but this album never got me very excited and the Norwegian vocals often reminds me of the Swedish cook in The Muppet Show! A decent effort, perhaps their most mature effort.
