Tusmorke - Riset Bak Speilet

SKU 19-SVR 270CD
This group emerged from Norway a couple of years ago with their first album, Underjordisk Tusmørke, which got a lot of enjoyment here and also with the public.

The group now returns with a re-tooled lineup and a second album. You can hear a lot of influence from Jethro Tull with more keyboards than I think of with Tull, while also hearing psychedelic/progressive folk influences ala Trees, Fairport & Incredible String Band.

"Norwegian group Tusmorke ("Twilight") is a strange beast. With roots stretching deep into the Scandinavian neo-progressive rock underground of the early nineties.

The identical Momrak twins recorded a Tusmorke demo in 1997 but soon put the band on hiatus for several years.

Tusmorke returned in 2009 with a full electric lineup and the debut album "Underjordisk Tusmorke" appeared three years later.

May 2014 sees the dark minstrels return with a sophomore album "Riset Bak Speilet" ("The wand behind the mirror").

A 50-minute transmission from the heart of the darkest northern forests, the album skillfully channels the spirit of classic British acid folk rock and soaks it in a black witches cauldron.

The spellbinding concoction is at times reminiscent of classic acts like Jethro Tull and Incredible String band, and also not entirely far off from modern forest magicians such as Hexvessel and Wolf People."
