Mofuglys. The - Murder Of Crows (2020)
The debut album from this US band.
The band is a quartet with a lineup of bass, drums, guitars, keyboards and vocals.
The musicians in this band has played with the likes of Frank Zappa, Mike Keneally, The Aristocrats, Joe Satriani and School Of Rock. They are pretty much veterans.
This album is a concept album. A fifty minutes long concept album.
The music is somewhere between neo-prog, progressive metal and indie rock.
There is a lot of samples who acts like narratives in this story being told here. A story about USA and the future of USA. A not so bright future, I gather.
The music is pretty lively and hard. There is a lot of organ like keyboards here and hard guitar riffs. Ditto for the vocals.
The music is mostly hard, indeed.
The quality of the music is not particular good. There is some good pieces here. Most of the music is decent.
Those into hard neo-prog will like this album. I have my reservations as I feel the quality is not here. Better songs next time.
