Isuldurs Bane - In Disequilibrium (2021)

The 13th album from this Swedish band.

The band was a nine piece big band with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, viola, violin, keyboards, woodwinds, marimba, trumpet and vocals.

This album is their second cooperation with Peter Hammil who does the vocals and some guitars here.

I noted on the previous cooperation album that the album was pretty close to Peter Hammill solo and Van Der Graaf Generator.

That is again the case here.

But we also get a lot of Swedish eclectic symphonic prog here too. That a bit hidden behind the vocals, but it is still here.

The vocals and the music is pretty eclectic and dark.  

This forty-five minutes long album is not for those with weak hearts. Fans of the gloomy, eclectic world Isuldurs Bane, Peter Hammil and Van Der Graaf Generator will really lap up this album.

It is indeed a good album too. The vocals and the melodies are really good and the album delivers one heck of a punch to solar plexus. 

Check it out.
