Welcome Inside The Brain - Queen Of The Day Flies (2019)
The second album from this German band.
The band is a quintet with a lineup of guitars, drums, keyboards, bass and vocals.
The band released their debut album two years ago. An album that flew under my radar.... unfortunate as it is.
The neo-prog scene in Germany is very good. Welcome Inside The Brain is among those bands upholding this standard.
Their music is indeed neo-prog. Pretty melodic, modern sounding neo-prog too. It is sometimes a bit heavy. But it is mostly epic and melodic at the same time.
The music is sometimes leaning towards krautrock and the likes of Grobschnitt. There is indeed some psych rock in their sound. Not much, but enough to give the band their own identity. And that is a good thing.
There is also a lot of 1970s in their music with the organ sound really adding a lot of colours and nostalgia to their sound. The vocals are OK and acceptable.
The end result is a good album who will please everyone into organic neo-prog. This is a band who deserve to be lifted up and given more attention. They deserve it.
