Gryphon - Reinvention CD

SKU 23-Grif CD 01
“Taking the progressive experiments of Red Queen To Gryphon Three further, ReInvention is Gryphon's first new studio album for 41 years. CD in digipak. Crumhorn not included.”

Happily and shockingly darn great all-new album from the mighty (and mighty unique) Gryphon, who were last heard from on record over 40 years ago.
Featuring a mix of new and old personnel, this will not dissapoint fans, especially fans of their classic second release Midnight Mushrumps. Highly recommended!!

“Would you believe it? Gryphon are releasing an all-new studio album of especially written, previously unheard material - and this comes all of 41 years after their fifth album, way back in 1977. Now they really are the oldest and the newest thing - a legendary British band that's as exhilarating, energetic, unpredictable and addictive now as it ever was.
After a one-off sell-out show in 2009 at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London the band reformed in 2016 as a six-piece with three new members and since then have been back on the road wowing audiences all over again and rapidly gaining a new fanbase.
ReInvention returns in part to their early connection with Lewis Carroll's Alice books, in which they found their name. Guitarist Graeme Taylor has set the White Knight's song 'A-Sitting on a Gate' into an epic 11 minute extravaganza which takes us on a musical journey from a reflective Brittenesque bassoon, clarinet and violin trio introduction, into a prog-rocky dialogue between the White Knight (Brian Gulland) and an 'aged, aged man' (Dave Oberlé), through a heavy-metal riff with a suddenly distorted and harmonized bassoon, and thence to a plaintively tragi-comic conclusion to bring us home with a rousing military march. Something for all the family!”
