Green Violinist. The - Receive & Transmit (2017)
The second album from this Belgium band.
The Green Violinist is a sextet on this album with a lineup of keyboards, bass, guitars, drums, programming and vocals.
I very much rated their 2013 album More Thrill & Never Ending Blessings in my review in March 2013. A very good album indeed. The album also had it's own charisma and style. It was a true art-rock album.
So I was pretty excited when I got hold of this album.
The band has continued in their pursuit of creating sonic art. We are again somewhere in the art-rock genre. And at the more darker fringes of this genre.
There is no denying that most of the samples are very dark with some very disturbing screams and shouts. The music follows in the same path.
I am not sure what the theme is here. But it is not for the faint hearted, I believe.
The music is melodic, a bit avant-garde, pretty cinematic and gloomy. This one hour long album has the ability to fascinate and repel at equal measures.
There is no great songs here. But the album is still a very good album from a band who deserve a lot more attention. Check out this album.
