"…Auch wird sofort klar, dass ein ganz besonderer Reiz in dem norwegischen Gesang, der drei hervorragenden Sänger liegt, der aller Retrolastigkeit zum Trotz dem Album eine ganz spezielle Note verleiht, die ihren Höhepunkt im abschließenden Zwanzigminuter findet, in dem sich die Sänger sogar ganz offensichtlich an das vokale Ausnahme-Meisterwerk "The Great Gig In The Sky" von "Dark Side On The Moon" wagen und die Parallelen mit Bravour meistern. Unfassbar! (…) Fazit: Verdammt schade, dass man bei Arabs In Aspic auf "Syndenes Magi" die norwegischen Texte nicht versteht, denn wenn die nur halbwegs so faszinierend wie die Musik und das grandiose Cover sind, dann entgeht uns vielleicht ein sehr wichtiger Teil dieses progressiven Puzzles, hinter dem sich auf jeden Fall die Bilder von Pink Floyd und King Crimson verbergen."
Das schrieb Musikreviews zum Vorgänger 'Syndenes Magi'. Nun erscheint endlich das sechste Album der norwegischen Progressive-Rock-Band. Dass der Sound von King Crimson, Black Sabbath, Van Der Graaf Generator oder Uriah Heep bis heute Schallwellen verursacht und Bands inspiriert, verdeutlichen einmal mehr Arabs In Aspic. Die gelten mit ihrem von Proto-Hardrock und 70s inspiriertem Progressive seit 15 Jahren zur Speerspitze der norwegischen Szene. Immer noch ein Top Geheimtipp!



Karisma Records have set the 12th June as the release date for “Madness and Magic” the seventh full-length album from Prog Rockers ARABS IN ASPIC, who are greatly looking forward to the fact that working with the label means that they will be able to focus solely on making and playing their music and bringing it to a wider audience, both in a studio setting and live.

“Madness and Magic” will be available in CD, Vinyl and Digital formats, and with artwork by Julia Proszowska, tracklisting for the album is as follows:

1. I Vow to Thee, My Screen
2. Lullaby for Modern Kids, Part 1
3. Lullaby for Modern Kids, Part 2
4. High-Tech Parent
5. Madness and Magic
6. Heaven in Your Eye

Commenting on the album, the band had this to say:

“Madness and Magic” is the first Arabs in Aspic album written for two drummers, with more acoustic guitar parts than previous albums. All the music was written and arranged in our studio and carefully put together like a puzzle with 50,000 pieces, to take the listener on a journey through life’s “Madness and Magic”, both musically and lyrically.

The lyrics for “Madness and Magic” reflect on how easily both children and adults are affected in the digital age, but also how helpless we are when we have to put our lives in the hands of specialists. Many ideas came up after a brief meeting with Doctor Death. The message of “Madness and Magic” is up to the listener to decide. For you are capable of thinking for yourself, right? With their musical roots embedded in what is known as the “Golden Era” of rock, and hailing from Trondheim in Norway, ARABS IN ASPIC’s lineup comprises Jostein Smeby on Guitars + vocals, Stig Jørgensen on Organs + vocals, Erik Paulsen on Bass + vocals, Eskil Nyhus on Drums + cymbals and Alessandro G. Elide on Percussion + gongs. Together they form an ensemble of musicians whose playing includes aspects classic rock, funk, pop, prog, heavy rock, bossanova, a capella. ARABS IN ASPIC will bring their distinctive sound, which can be described as a sweet mixture of loud, heavy guitars and drums, 12 string acoustics, funky bass and percussion, screaming Hammond organs, soft Rhodes, Mellotrons and 70’s Synths, topped with plentiful vocal harmonies, to the John Dee in Oslo on the 13 June when they celebrate the release of “Madness and Magic”, along with support THE FLYING NORSEMEN.
