Inistekar - Trigonobralistes Tome Second (2017)

The second album from this Canadian band.

The band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, violin, guitars, mandolin, keyboards and vocals.

A guest musician contributed with organ on one track.

I am a pretty big fan of the Quebec scene and is very happy when I find another band from this scene. A band like this one.

I have sadly not been able to get their 2001 debut album. Neither have I been able to get the EP they released last year. But that means there is life in the band and that makes me happy.

The music on this album is eclectic, indeed. 

The vocals are in French and the music is a mix of Quebec scene fusion, epic pastoral symphonic prog, King Crimson, Ange and some hard prog.

The good vocals are both male and female. There is a lot of vocals and vocal harmonies here.

The album clocks in at over one hour and it is an hour x many times well spent.

The music is both intricate and harmonic. It has a lot of good details and this band and album deserves a lot more attention than it currently is getting. 

This is indeed a good album.
