3 stars Broken Parachute a fairly unknown band from Canada but yet quite good at what they done on their two albums released so far. Conducted by Marcus Taylor responsable for guitar parts with a help by Ben Bell ( Fusion Orchestra 2, Patchwork Cacophony and Gandalf's Fist) on keyboards and vocals and on drums James Chapman. Well, I like what I've heared on their latest release, their second offer named Living dangerously released in 2019. The music is s combination of, as they describe themself , Deep Purple and Yes with a touch of modern Porcupine Tree, so a 70's style of prog with a modern contemporay sound. I like the vocal parts very much, warm voice provided by Bell , musicaly is quite good listning, for example Lines, is a superb guitar hammong treat, both musicians done a great job. Bell's keyboards are complex and integrated very well in overall sound and in combination of great guitar lines and solid drumming, remind me a lot of early Deep Purple and aswell Yes, as vocal department goes maybe in Gentle Giant direction in some parts. So, a good album, I really enjoying from start to finish, took me back spiritualy to those bands who explore symphonic prog with heavy prog of ealry'70s. A nice one3.5 stars for sure.
