Tirith. The - A Leap Into The Dark (2019)
The second album from this UK band.
The Tirith is a trio with a lineup of keyboards, bass, drums, guitars, percussion and vocals.
A guest musician added extra keyboards.
I was not impressed by this trio's 2015 debut album Tales From The Tower. You can read my review here.
The band is again operating in the crossroads between 1980s neo-prog, heavy prog and progressive metal.
The 1980s neo-prog sound is very notable throughout these seventy minutes. Pendragon, Pallas and IQ is good references.
It sounds to me like we here have a neo-prog retro band on our hands. That is a first......
The vocals and the other instruments sounds like that. Ditto for the songs who are also leaning towards the new-romantics wave...... the wave of bands including Duran Duran.
I am again far from being impressed with this band. The music is genuine lacking in quality and good songs. The vocals does not rise the standards either.
This is a decent album but nothing more than that, I am afraid.
