Tusmorke - Fört Bak Lyset vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU Svart SVR 401 LP
This is an unbelievably beautiful and HEAVY WEIGHT package with the thickest cardboard for the gatefold jacket I have ever seen!

In the last 5 years or so, this group has emerged as one of the best progressive rock bands from Norway. Their two previous albums were great and this one is great too.

Lots of flute and and lots of folk & classical influences on the music that will lead to comparisons with Jethro Tull, which are fine and accurate, but no way is Tusmörke a 'Tull clone', as there's a lot more here, and besides, the vocalist doesn't sound anything like Ian Anderson (and he sings in Norwegian). Also appearing are a great keyboardist, who keeps to organ and piano, guitar, bass, and drums. Recommended.

"Twin brothers Benedikt Benediktator and Kristoffer Krizla Momrak follow 2014's superb Riset Bak Speilet with their third album, which again showcases their idiosyncratic vision.
They sing in their native Norwegian, but their musical reference points are more familiar to non-speakers. Opener Ekebergkongen is built around a flute hook that borrows the motif from Grieg's Hall Of The Mountain King, and it makes for a splendidly trippy folk prog introduction. De Reiser Fra Oss sees an urgent groove and breathless vocals punctuated by a portentous mantra, as if soundtracking a chase scene in a pagan horror flick set in the woods somewhere north of the Arctic Circle. Elsewhere, the Mike Oldfield-style bell tingles lacing the intro of Et Djevelsk Mareritt make you think of The Exorcist, then it unfolds into a sweetly pastoral flute-led maypole dance, before storm clouds gather and more malevolent rock shades hove into view. We're told the album asks us to 'follow Tusmörke through the falling dusk and disappear in the night, reappearing at dawn with weird wisdom and strange leaves in your hair'. Well, whatever just happened, it was quite a ride."-Prog Magazine
