Mother Morgana - Endonautica (2019)
The debut album from this Austrian band.
The band is a quartet with a lineup of piano, drums, guitars, bass, synths and vocals.
I have never heard about this band before this album landed in my inbox, ready to be reviewed.
The band is from this nice city Graz in the south of Austria and the vocals are female vocals. The vocalist also doubles up as a piano and synth player and her name is Katarina Franz.
The band has chosen to describe the music as stoner rock. It is not stoner rock.
Take neo-prog with female vocals and add some progressive metal and west coast rock. This thirty odd minutes of music gives exactly that.
The vocals are really good and the musicians tries their best on some songs which is not particular good. The art of great songwriting has eluded this band..... so far. That may and must change if the band continues on with more albums.
The sound is good and there is something here they should build on.
