4 stars Norwegian band Jordsjo started out as a side project for composer and musician Haakon Oftung back in 2014, which has subsequently grown to become a two man venture and then eventually into a four man strong band unit. Four albums have been released under the Jordsjo moniker by now, all of them as cassette only releases. "Jord" from 2017 is the most recent of these, and this production is also set for a proper CD release, courtesy of Norwegian label Karisma Records, at the end of February this year.

Those fond of classic era symphonic progressive rock should take note of Jordsjo straight away, and note down this band as one that warrants a check sooner rather than later. In particular those fond of mid 70's Camel and Eloy in my opinion, and then especially those that think they would enjoy music of that kind given a light but firm seasoning of Scandinavian folk music elements.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
