Nemo - Le Ver Dans Le Fruit (2013)
The eight album from this French band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of guitars, drums, keyboards, bass and French vocals.
I have been a fan of this band since their third album or so.
Their take on French symphonic prog is very refreshing. The band is though not a French symphonic prog band. It is a.... well, I am not sure.
The band combines again some progressive metal and eclectic prog with old French symphonic prog. Ange is still pretty large in the background.
The sound is very much this day and age though. Ditto for for the vocals and the instruments.
The music is eclectic, folk rocky, symphonic, bold, a bit bombastic and a bit heavy. It is also very colourful and intricate.
There is several songs on this double CD, eighty-five minutes long album which comes out great. And the album is full of intricate details throughout. The vocals is a big plus too.
This is another great album from this rather underrated band. A band who are a hidden gem in the progressive rock scene. But those who seek and find their albums has found something really, really special. I am so happy I am one of them.
