Amarok - Hero (2021)

The sixth album from this band from Poland.

The band is a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, percussion, guitars, violin, djembe, cello, harmonium, theremin, flute, synths and vocals.

Amarok, that is mr Michal Wojtas, gave us a turkey with the previous album The Storm from 2019. It is a most horrid album.

To my joy, Michal Wojtas has turned Amarok back to being a melodic neo-prog band in the Polish neo-prog tradition. A very good tradition, btw.

The neo-prog is a bit on the poppy side and is missing a bit when it comes to interesting details.

There is also some post-rock soundscapes on this album too.

The overall quality is good throughout this album and this album is a massive improvement on the previous album.

Welcome back, Amarok.
