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…

Total Time 47:49

Line-up:
Jon Courtney
Chloë Alper
other performers can't be confirmed at this moment

Description/Reviews:

It's fitting then that Eupnea, the long-awaited return from the band, sees them harking back to their earliest days, while rolling in all of the musical experiments and experience they've gathered in the intervening years. The cinematic soundscapes of Hammer and Anvil? Check. The dark atmosphere and synths of Amor Vincit Omnia? Check. The gauzy psych-prog of their debut? Ch-check. For some bands, this would simply be retreading old ground. For Pure Reason Revolution this relaunch is a rebirth, producing their most confident record yet, which takes them in a new direction while weaving in the elements that endeared them to fans in the first place.

Description/Reviews:

According to the the PR that came with the album, Georgian Microjamz is, as the title suggests, a hybrid of traditional Georgian folk music and progressive microtonal jazz. But the hybrid is quite clearly skewed toward Mikadze’s original compositions, with any traditional folk pieces serving only as inspiration, and only three tracks on the album being arrangements of traditional Georgian folk songs.

Elder "Omens"
Afbeelding

Country: USA
Genre(s): Psychedelic, Progressive Rock
Label: Armageddon Shop (US), Stickman Records (EU)
Format: CD, vinyl, digital, cassette
Release date: April 24, 2020

Tracklist:
1. Omens
2. In Procession
3. Halcyon
4. Embers
5. One Light Retreating

Line-up:
Nicholas DiSalvo – Guitars, vocals, keyboards
Michael Risberg – Guitars, keyboards
Jack Donvan – Bass
Georg Edert – Drums
With
Fabio Cuomo – Keyboards

Description/Reviews:

Omens, the band's fifth full-length record, is the newest pillar in the construction of their own musical universe. With it, Elder further embrace experimentation in their brand of progressive psychedelic rock in which atmosphere, melody and structure are created and transformed again and again.
Following 2017's Reflections of a Floating World and the 2019 experimental EP The Gold & Silver Sessions, it was anyone's guess what the band's next full-length might have in store. Having cemented their own sound – a dense yet lucid brand of heavy rock full of unexpected flourishes and progressive jaunts - the latter EP showcased an exact opposite side of Elder, more rooted in sparse krautrock and even jazz-tinged jams. Omens answers this speculation with a contradiction that embodies the spirit of Elder: somehow, there's even more everything.
In five cinematic songs, lush, intricately interwoven melodies grow and dissolve into spaced-out jams. Massive riffs thunder down into a churning sea of psychedelic sounds and unpredictable grooves carry away the listener. Elder paints pictures with their music, and Omens shows the band experimenting with an even more colorful palette – with good reason.
This is music for a vacation from reality – or to lose oneself in another world. And yet Omens is not purely an exercise in escapism, but also reflects the increasingly bleak, confusing and antagonistic times in which it was written. Composed as a concept album spanning the lifespan of a civilization, the album also reads as a commentary on our own society hell-bent on profitability at the expense of our own lives and environment.
