Lucifer Was - In Anadi's Bower (2000)

The second album from this Norwegian band.

The band was an eight piece big band on  this album with a lineup of drums, percussion, flute, mellotron, keyboards, bass, guitars and vocals.

Their debut album was a wild album with obvious Black Sabbath and Jethro Tull influences. But it was a likeable album.

In Anadi's Bower sees the band widen their horizons a bit.

There is still plenty of hard rock here and this album is indeed in the hard prog genre. There is also a lot of Jethro Tull and Prudence influences here. The symphonic prog band The Moody Blues has also left their marks on this album.

The vocals is a bit heavy accented but that is pretty charming. The vocals are also good. 

Some Norwegian folk rock also springs to life on this album, although this is a pretty hard rocking album with a great 1970s sound. I believe the songs on this album was written in the 1970s.

The quality is good throughout this album and it is an album well worth checking out.
