Every now and then you come across an album that totally blows you away, an album that fills you to the brim with utter joy and musical contentment that is comparable to those classical early days of UK progressive rock.


Certainly, a project that recaptures, to a certain degree, those magical days of the late sixties and early seventies when the UK was bursting with this unbelievable vibrancy due to the glorious evolution of progressive rock and bands like early ‘Genesis, Yes’ and a whole host similar in styled bands writing and playing their own music.


But, believe it or not, ‘Mourning Knight’ is an extremely talented duo from Winchester County, an area in the Hudson Valley north of New York City.


A band not tempted to follow the modern trend of heavy riffing and growling death projected vocals. What we have here is a wonderfully melodic, beautifully arranged slice of nostalgic UK styled progressive rock that is loaded to the brim with oodles of symphonic delights. Every one of the excellent five tracks is bursting at the seams with absolute grandeur and riddled with musical splendour. Lush combinations of unequivocally magical guitar and lovely organ/ synthesiser keyboard chord progressions dominate the proceedings with multitudes of piano fills drawing together the various compositional segments. It must be made clear though that the music is at times is quite divergent, momentary drifting from honey-drenched saccharine-sweet conventional styled 70s progressive over to more classical styled territory, a few bars of ‘Slaughter on Tenth Avenue’ comes to mind in track 3. But on the whole, the dreamy combinations of guitar and swirling keyboards hold sway with oodles of underlying counter melodies adding panache and style as the music travels through the various soundscapes and subtle multi-time changes.


The compositional brains behind ‘Mourning Knight’ is Jason Brower not only a talented musician but also a fabulously gifted award-winning artist and illustrator who works for many publications including ‘Little Shoppe of Horrors.’ Jason not only writes the music but also assembles the lyrics.


But in Norm Dodge, he has a wonderful partner and extraordinary guitarist, a pairing who clearly understand each other and whose joint instrumental prowess ingeniously dovetails together. The multi-tracking introducing drums and bass is really well executed. From a vocal perspective, Jason has a pleasant voice which suits the music well. Although slightly in the background of the mix the support vocals work well. shadowing rather than harmonising with the main vocal lines.


Summary– Can I just say that this album is totally my cup of tea, the harmonious combinations of multiple keyboards and well-considered guitar incursions are a sheer joy.
