Progeland - Harmony Of The Universe (2018)
The second album from this band from Finland.
The band is a quintet with a lineup of bass, drums, keyboards, guitars and vocals.
I really liked their 2014 debut album Gate To Fulfilled Fantasy a lot. Really good crossover between heavy and symphonic prog.
So I was looking forward to another helping of their music. It has arrived in the form of this album.
We are again being treated to a mix of Finnish heavy prog, symphonic prog and some neo-prog too. There are also some Finnish folk rock influences on this album.
The keyboards/organs are really good here. The vocals are superb and the guitars are good.
What is missing on this forty-four minutes long album is some really great songs. There is none of them. The band and indeed this album has it's own style. But the quality is sorely missing....
This is a good album indeed and one to check out.
