Chromb! "Le Livre Des Merveilles"
Afbeelding

Country: France
Genre(s): Progressive Rock
Label: Dur et Doux
Format: CD, digital, vinyl
Release date: March 27, 2020

Tracklist:
1. Le livre des merveilles
2. Le fleuve Brison
3. Les chevaliers qui apparaissent
4. La souvenance d'Achille

Line-up:
Léo Dumont - Drums, percussion, objects
Camille Durieux - Keyboards, synths, vocals
Lucas Hercberg - Bass, synth, vocals
Antoine Mermet - Alto sax, delay, synths, vocals

Description/Reviews:

Off with the worn out fusion-prog, the ten notes per second that were the trademark of the Lyon-based musicians, now the approach is radical and the demonstrative varnish fades away in favour of "knowledge". This same "knowledge" the XIIIth century cleric and knight Gervais de Tilbury praised in his Livre des Merveilles wich the band draws his inspiration from, even borrowing entire dizzying fragments.
This is how CHROMB!'s heroic gest unfolds ! The four tracks, inspired by a fantasized mythology that J.L Borges would not have disavowed, let eventually the light come through... Between medievalism and futurism, the lyrics in French, make use of playful hermeticism and smash the rules to pieces. Less acidic, more structured, the style asserts itself, more and more epic as it is ornament-less.
Labyrinthine tales with sinuous vocal parts here, a noisy symphony there: with Le Livre des Merveille, the incredible gives way to the fabulous…

Kanaan "Double Sun"
Afbeelding

Country: Norway
Genre(s): Instrumental Psychedelic
Label: El Paraiso Records - EPR058
Format: CD, digital, vinyl
Release date: April 24, 2020

Tracklist:
1. Worlds Together
2. Mountain
3. Öresund
4. Worlds Apart
5. Double Sun Pt. 1
6. Double Sun Pt. 2

Line-up:
Ask Vatn Strøm: Electric and acoustic guitars
Ingvald André Vassbø: Drums, percussion and organ
Eskild Myrvoll: Bass, synths, electric and acoustic guitars
With
Bjørn Klakegg: Lead guitar (5, 6)

Description/Reviews:

Treading the same path as their 2018 debut Windborne, Double Sun is a studio effort in the best sense of the word. Perfectly balanced on the edge of dynamic improv, throbbing beats sizzled in scorching fuzz and topped off with deeply layered soundscapes. This album sees Kanaan reach a new plateau.

Kanaan presents a unique perspective to psychedelic rock, painting with a wide palette that includes jazz and post-rock. Double Sun devotes as much energy to sonic colour as it does to groove and energy. The spirit of experimentation is everywhere: From the savory, pastoral sounds of opening track Worlds Together, to the soaring exploratory paths of the two-part title track. In the creative process, Kanaan dived deep into the possibilities of the studio, adding intricate layers and twists and turns to these tunes: acoustic guitars, percussions & synthesizers embrace and enhance the Norwegian modern day version of a power-trio.

Marc Papaghin: French horns (6)

Description/Reviews:

A concept album comprising of six thematically linked pieces exploring our relationship with memory and loss. The liminal space between a fading ‘what was’ and an anticipated ‘what is to come’.
The album recalls the hazy technicolour of long remembered summers and the sepia of a love forgotten. A place where we blur the boundaries of returning and renewal. The lyrics chart the course through recollection to premonition. These words are both deeply personal and universal, hope for what is next and a lament for what we have lost.
The influences on the new album continue in a similar vein to the band's self-titled 2014 opus - further developing their eclectic mix of folk, rock, metal and Celtic styles. The album’s trajectory shifts between crunching guitars, subtle acoustic instruments, strings, soaring Hammond and emotive grand piano all connected by lyrical storytelling and timeless vocals and harmonies.

Description/Reviews:

... you get dark, eerie, nostalgic and somewhat soothing music with symphonic elements and heartfelt guitar solos. Landing on the softer side of the post-progressive spectrum, Kristoffer Gildenlöw has been compared with bands and artists such as David Sylvian, The Deer Hunter, Blackfield, No Man, Roger Waters among others. From small, minimalistic songs and soundscapes to full symphonic rock with choirs, strings, brass, howling guitar solos and carefully chosen instrumentations, his music tells a story.

Daniel Moilanen - Drums
With
Anni Bernhard - Vocals (6)

Description/Reviews:

With the winds of a new direction steering the band on their latest journey, City Burials stands as Katatonia’s new triumph of deep & enigmatic progressive rock – the fruits of a rejuvenating and profound chapter in the band’s legacy; a catalyst for its creators, with a collection of moments constructed out of the fragments of an ever-evolving life. Compiled into one of their most important modern works and statements to date, the finely-honed instrumentation provides a multi-textured backdrop with the voice of Jonas Renkse guiding us through these latest trials of loss and ruin.The proof of Jonas and Anders’ enduring artistic bond is displayed throughout City Burials’ absorbing 58 minutes of meticulously crafted melodies and inspired, idiosyncratic arrangements. From the spine-tingling dynamics of opener “Heart Set To Divide” through and the simmering menace of “Lacquer” to the wildly evocative sorrow-scapes of “City Glaciers” and the exquisitely delicate “Vanishers” Katatonia’s eleventh studio album is a showcase for a partnership that was magical from the very start.
