Prog Reviewer
3 stars Early four piece British act who created a grand symphonic concept album based on the topic of god and the "Ten Commandments". Centred around the organ laden swirls of Alister Benson who at times very much remind me of DEEP PURPLE's Jon Lord. Conceptually on this album each of the ten songs focuses on one commandment. SALAMANDER combine orchestra with rock not unlike in many ways the MOODY BLUES achieved on their early albums. Lead vocalist Dave Titley sounds very similar in style to Dave Lambert of the STRAWBS and the vocal harmonies work to perfection. Instrumentally SALAMANDER are tight and crisp with guitar, bass, drums and organ augmented with orchestration throughout.
