Galasphere 347 - Galasphere 347 (2018)
The debut album from this Norwegian band.
The band is a quartet with a lineup of guitars, flutes, keyboards, bass, drums, programming and vocals.
Two guest musicians provides trombone and extra vocals.
Galasphere 347 contains musicians from Henry Fool, Anglagard and White Willow. The musicians are veterans in the scene.
This album has three tracks and contains forty-two minutes of music.
The music is a modern take on symphonic prog. There is a lot of Yes, White Willow and some Anglagard references here.
This sounds like sweet music to the ears of symphonic prog fans... and it is. The music is really complex and melodic at the same time.
The result is a soaring, complex and melodic symphonic prog album which keeps giving on all levels.
It is also a great album which will figure high in the best of 2018 polls. And it is an album all fans of symphonic prog need to get.
