Dracma - A Fine Stormy Weather (1996)
The second album from this Spanish band.
Dracma was a quintet with a lineup of guitars, grand piano, keyboards, bass, drums and vocals.
I thought this was a band from Hellas named after their national currency before they adopted Euro as their currency. But I was wrong. This band is from Spain.
I have not heard their first or third album. I think this band is no more too. So A Dine Stormy Weather is the only album I got from them.
The band is a neo-prog band and the music on this fifty minutes long album is neo-prog.
The sound is the early 1990s British neo-prog sound. That means a bit thin vocals, keyboards and guitars. There is not much beef in their sound and music.
Pendragon is a very good reference to the music on this album, indeed.
The music is pretty symphonic too with lots of guitar solos. The vocals are really good and there is a lot of nice little details to feel happy about here.
This is indeed a good neo-prog album which warms the hearts of neo-prog fans. Me too included. The result is a weak good rating, but still a good rating. Check out this album.
