Miriodor - Parade + Live At NEARFest 2 x CDs

SKU Rune 208-209
There are few things as exciting to me personally as receiving a new release from this band, who I regard as one of the greatest of the greats. Miriodor have been making adventurous, memorable and truly entertaining instrumental rock music for 25 years. Currently they use a six piece lineup of guitars, keyboards, violin, saxophones, bass and drums. As Goldmine said, "Occupying a realm somewhat between the chamber rock of Univers Zero and the spry fusion of vintage Jean-Luc Ponty, with hints of Van Der Graaf Generator and Soft Machine along the way, Miriodor mostly just sounds like Miriodor...unique and forward looking." Featuring some wonderful guest performances on bassoon and also guest spots by accordionist/keyboardist Lars Hollmer, who also contributes compositionally, Parade is the band's sixth album and is their most impressive and inspired album yet! In addition to their new studio work, this album includes a second disc which features the band's complete, now legendary performance at NEARFest 2002, which was seen by a sold-out audience of 1,850 and which caused Sea Of Tranquility to comment, "Miriodor proved that complex music can still have melody and finesse. Miriodor was without a doubt one of the highlights of the festival..."
