Nemo - Prélude À La Ruine (2004)
The third album from this French band.
Nemo was a quartet with a lineup of bass, drums, banjo, keyboards, guitars and vocals.
Back in July 2012, I reviewed their 2003 second album Presages and liked that album a lot. Read my review here.
I am now planning to review their remaining albums this fall and winter. I think that will be a rather special, eclectic journey !
The band sings in French and their music is very much French with a French take on progressive rock. That means some Jacquel Brel influences as Ange made French symphonic prog so special.
Nemo takes a harder, heavier approach to this scene and adds in a lot of progressive metal and extreme metal into this album.
It still sounds eclectic though. Their mix of symph prog, folk rock and prog metal is very eclectic and nowhere near straight forward.
Nemo has their own style and that comes across with some French folk rock woven into their music.
One hour of music which is really good and special on this album. It sounds different, but still good. This is another fine album from this fine French band.
