4 stars Norwegian composer and musician Bjorn RIIS initially made a name for himself as a member of Norwegian progressive rock band Airbag and as the main man behind the website, but since 2014 he has also developed a solo career that appears to go from strength to strength. "A Storm Is Coming" is his third full length solo album and his fourth solo release overall, and was released by Norwegian label Karisma Records in the spring of 2019.

Those who are fond of atmospheric laden progressive rock, often with a melancholic general mood, and compositions that ebb and flow in pace and intensity with mainly slow, deliberate and subtle developments alterations will probably be something of a key audience for this production. Those equally fond of the more atmospheric laden parts of later day Pink Floyd and ambient oriented post-rock possibly the audience that will get this music most readily. A solid production that will be treasured by the right audience.
