Konom - Konom (2021)

The debut album from this band from Great Britain.

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

Another new band has entered the British progressive rock scene and we should all be happy about that. The scene always needs new blood, new bands and new albums.

The band released an EP under the name Ascent back in 2015 before they changed their name. Their new album has been released through Bandcamp.

This album is fifty minutes long and has one long suite who takes half of the album and three other long songs.

The music is heavy and their music is somewhere between progressive metal, hard prog and neo-prog. Dream Theater, Pallas and Porcupine Tree springs to mind here. 

There are some good guitars here throughout these epic songs and a lot of interesting details. The vocals are good too and the musicians is doing a good job.

This album grows on the listener and the listener gets more from it every time. This is indeed a good album and this band is added to my list of new talents well worth keeping an eye on.
