3 stars Thule is obviously a very little-known band coming from northern Norway and since I see my mission here at PA a bit in being a kind of advocate for such tiny obscure bands I felt some need to provide reviews for their album pages still looking quite blank. The fact that they're still almost empty is not that much astounding if knowing that they used to release their CD's on their own independant label just in a quantity of 1000-2000. Nonetheless I've been lucky to find this one here plus its two successors. The kind of music presented here is quite typically for bands coming from that area rather dark and somber but having as well quite a lot of lively and really freaky moments. Compared to "Frostbrent" and "Graks" sounding more like a type of "progressive goth rock" the songs on here still exhibit some more resemblance to 70's old school prog mostly due to the extensive use of organ sound which is presented in a brilliant way. Apart from that all musicianship is really flawless and especially Peer-Einar Pedersen shines no matter if he plays bass, guitar, harmonica or accordeon. This album is a highly diversified one and should certainly provide many enjoyable spins to both 70's Prog and modern art rock fans. Though there isn't any weak track on here actually I'm still hesitating to consider it an essential one but anyway it's good for 3 1/2 stars I would say.
