Ring Van Möbius - The 3rd Majesty (2020)

The second album from this Norwegian band.

The band is a trio with a lineup of timpani, percussion, drums, bass, tubular bells, organ, keyboards, effects, moog, clavinet, theremin and vocals.

I really loved their 2018 album Past The Evening Sun. It was a great album in the Van Der Graaf Generator vein.

Van Der Graaf Generator is still very much present in their soundscape.

This album starts out much more in the vein of ELP and continues like that for a long time before the Van Der Graaf Generator elements also kicks in and merges with the ELP influences.

Add some psych and a lot of Yes influences too and you get this album.

The music is pretty playful and the songs are long. 

The music has this 1970s sound, upgraded to our this day and time ears.

The band has again delivered a great album and one to really enjoy
