This Swedish band clearly has its roots in the classic times of prog but the sound of ‘Hypnagogia‘ and the writing is brand new, only slight references here and there: ‘Dissolve‘ (Focus) and ‘Mordangel‘(King Crimson-ish). For fans of Black Sabbath, Tool, Anekdoten, Pink Floyd, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Gong, Opeth, King Crimson, Meshuggah, Steven Wilson, Motorpsycho, Tiamat, Miles Davis, Genesis, Van Der Graaf Generator, Gentle Giant, Magma, Porcupine Tree, Haken.
Second release from this interesting Swedish retro-prog band. Plenty of old school prog sounds with some psych elements as well. The music has a dark noir-ish quality that reminds a bit of the first couple Riverside albums - just in terms of the overall vibe. Vocals are in Swedish but somehow it fits with the mood. This one is a real grower. I think in the post-pandemic era (whenever that may be) this band could potentially make an impact in the prog scene. Highly recommended.
