LAST KNIGHT konnten sich bereits mit ihrem letzten Monumentalwerk ´Talking To The Moon´ aus dem Jahre 2016 in die Annalen der Geschichte schreiben, musizierte das internationale Künstlerkollektiv doch 227 Minuten lang über drei Scheiben hinweg. Diesmal ist es nur ein über 70 Minuten langes Epos in sieben Teilen geworden.


Der spanische Songwriter Jose Manuel Medina (MANDALABAND; Keyboards, Piano & Orchestrations) erweist sich erneut als Dreh- und Angelpunkt von LAST KNIGHT. Sänger/Gitarrist Gustavo Lato zeichnet sich diesmal jedoch für die Idee, sich den sieben Todsünden nach dem Werk die „Göttliche Komödie“ des italienischen Dichters Dante Alighieri zu widmen, verantwortlich. Er besingt zudem die meisten Kompositionen, die die Weiten des sinfonischen Prog Rock beschreiten, mit seinem leichten Akzent.


Gleich der epische Opener ´Lust´ lotet die Grenzen zwischen GENESIS und PINK FLOYD aus. Im Saloon-Song ´Gluttony´ spielt Gustavo Lato die Gitarre ganz im Sinne von Brian May. Das balladeske ´Greed´ singt Richie Castellano (BLUE ÖYSTER CULT) und das orchestrale ´Envy´ John Mitchell (ARENA, IT BITES). Auch Theo Travis (THE TANGENT, SOFT MACHINE) ist hier mit seinem Saxofon zugegen. Während ´Sloth´ ganz auf den Spuren von YES und das finale, cineastische ´Pride´ eher auf den von PINK FLOYD wandert, darf mit ´Anger´ tatsächlich ein kleiner, siebenminütiger Hit beklatscht werden.


´Seven Deadly Sins´ sollte nicht nur den Neo Progger, sondern jedweden Prog Rocker mit Vorliebe für sinfonische Konzeptwerke ansprechen. (streetclip.de)



Talking To The Moon (2016) was a collection of songs of all styles whose only requirement was to have inspiration in the world of the night and the Moon. Stylistically it is a very difficult album to classify and this generated some controversy due to its lack of homogeneity, despite the good general acceptance of the work. During the two years prior to the publication of Talking To The Moon, there were several conversations between Jose Manuel Medina and Pablo Lato for the realization of the next Last Knight album. They planned to make an album inspired by the mythical bands of the symphonic rock of the seventies (Yes, King Crimson, Camel, Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons Project ...). Jose Manuel Medina had produced Talking To The Moon, but he did not feel qualified to produce such an album. Then, music began to be written for an idea that Pablo Lato had in mind. It was about recreating the seven deadly sins with music, based on the work of Dante Alighieri “The Divine Comedy.” A production team was then formed in which Pablo Lato would assume the musical direction and Jose Manuel Medina would assume bureaucratic production tasks in a secondary way. Thus began a long production process of four and a half years, bringing together a cast of very talented musicians, some of them well known within the Anglo-Saxon world, as is the case of John Mitchell, Richie Castellano or Theo Travis. Equally known but in the Spanish-speaking sphere are José Bruno, Fernando Samalea or Nelson Pombal. They also had musicians who had already participated in Talking To The Moon and new signings that include Pablo Lato’s brother, the versatile singer and guitarist Gus Lato or the multi-instrumentalist Rafael Pacha. Once again, musicians from different stylistic spheres joined forces to create a multicolored musical fusion, this time led by Pablo Lato. The compositions have been written mainly by Jose Manuel Medina and complemented by Pablo Lato, with a small participation of Eduardo G. Salueña and the canadian poet Cindy L. Spear, writer of the lyrics of the song Sloth. The final result is a concept album with seven themes and an approximate total duration of 69 minutes, with very varied musical landscapes and lots of instrumentation.
