Dice - The Four Riders of the Apocalypse (remastered/mini-lp sleeve)
Belle Antique 071238
Dice were a Swedish progressive band of the mid/late 1970's whose only album was reissued in Japan on CD to great acclaim in the late 1980's, setting off an explosion of interest that the band never enjoyed during their lifetime. This conceptual work pre-dates their self-titled album by one year & was never heard until this release. All instrumental, and performed on electric & acoustic guitars, organ/mellotron/synths/piano, bass and drums. With fiery passages recalling Crimson, smoldering mellotron/organ parts and more, this was probably the very best symphonic rock releases that I heard in 1992 (when it was first released). After being unavailable for a number of years, this new mini-lp sleeve edition comes with a previously unreleased bonus track. High recommended to symphonic rock fans; this is a superior work of its kind!
