4 stars This band is from Norway, the Western part of Scandinavia, known for its 'fjords' and 'Vikings'. The music on the debut-CD "Brennende Drommer" (2004) is very melodic and harmonic 24-carat symphonic rock. The sound is loaded with Hammond and Mellotron, often the early BARCLAY JAMES & HARVEST comes to my mind. But the emotional Norwegian vocals and the layers of violin Mellotron also evokes the work of fellow Scandinavians LANDBERK and ANGLAGARD. The music is rather simple and accessible but the emotional impact is very great, it invites you to dream away from the daily stress and problems like the European euro! The guitar work is beautiful and very sensitive with some awesome interplay with the keyboards. The compositions contain alternating climates, from mellow with organ and twanging guitar to sumptuous outbursts with floods of Hammond and Mellotron. Wonderful Seventies-inspired symphonic rock that will appeal to the 'vintage keyboard aficionados'.
