Tusmørke - Riset Bak Speilet (2014)

The second album from this Norwegian band.

Tusmorke was a quartet with a lineup of flute, organ, bass, drums and vocals.

I reviewed their 2012 debut album Underjordisk Tusmorke back in November 2012 and has since followed their progress from afar. You can read my review here

I got a couple more album of them and they are being reviewed this summer.

The band plays folk progressive rock with a lot of psych rock influences. There are some Jethro Tull influences here and a lot of influences from the Norwegian folk rock scene from the 1970s.

The eight minutes long Offerpresten starts this forty odd minutes long album and it is a really good folk rock tune.

The album dives into a much more dense psych folk prog rock landscape on the following three songs before the title track rises the level again with a fifteen minutes long folk symphonic prog song. The best song of the album by far and a very good one too.

I am one of those few who are not really a fan of this band. I am a moveable object, though.... This album is a good album but nothing more than that.
