Taskaha - Taskaha (2020)

The debut album from this Norwegian band.

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

There is a lot of new progressive  rock coming from Norway these days. This small country has become one of the bigger territories when it comes to progressive rock. That is; when it comes to bands. The media and the general public could not care less. The Norwegian progressive rock bands never ever get any media coverage in Norway.

And that makes me flipping angry.

This album was released by the band themselves last year. Digitally released.

The music is a mix of neo-prog, rock and progressive metal. There are also some hints of AOR here.

The sound is slick and the band does all the right things.The vocals too is really good.

My main gripe is the art of songwriting. The art of writing good songs. That is the one thing missing here.

This is a promising debut album but the next album must be better and it must include a lot of better songs.

2.5 point
