4 stars What's up with Tusmørke? While Wobbler makes us wait for years for a brand new release, Tusmørke rarely keeps us waiting for more than two years for a new release. This time around, about a year since the last release Ført Bak Liset. Hinsides is the first of two albums they released in 2017, the other the unusual children's album Bydyra released in November. Hinsides is probably their most complex and ambitious album they have done so far. The lineup is pretty much the same as before: Krizla, Benediktator (the Momrak brothers who founded Tusmørke), HlewagastiR (Martin Nordrum Kneppen, the drummer for Wobbler), and The Phenomenon Marxo Solinas (Lars Fredrik Frøislie, also of Wobbler, as well as White Willow and others). It might not start that way, "Hjemsøkte Hjem" starts off rather lightweight and upbeat, in fact rather lightweight by Tusmørke standards, but still a great piece. "I Feel Like Midnight" is more heavy, but they unexpectedly break into Latin music, before returning back to their more typical sound. "En Rykende Ruin" is shows a more complex part of the band, but it unexpectedly ends up more lightweight. "Lysskydrøm" has a more lullaby feel to it, it has a familiar sounding melody like I've heard it somewhere else. At first I didn't care for it, but it started to grow on me. It was only because I wasn't used to this group doing such a lightweight piece as this. The piece suddenly breaks into a bit jazzy piece, closing it off with a krumhorn. But then they do something far more doomy and gloomy sounding with the 23 minute "Sankt Sebastians Alter". This is truly amazing and really weird piece, by far the most complex and ambition piece these guys have ever done. This really blew me away and worth the price of admission. With Hinsides I notice the band covering new ground but continuing to retain that wonderful prog/folk/psych feel. I took me a little to get use to the more lightweight parts of this album, but they deliver another goodie worth having!
