Knekklectric - Alt blir verre (2022)

The third album from this Norwegian band.

The band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, organ, keyboards and vocals.

I have never ever heard about this band before this album was given to me as a promo album. I thought it was their debut album. Their Bandcamp page says their debut album was released in 2014 and their second album was released in 2018. Albums I will have a look for now.

The reason is that the band plays some form for progressive rock.

Take early symphonic prog, add some fusion, Gentle Giant and a lot of Caravan like Canterbury prog.  

Both the music and the lyric is very quirky and nerdy.

This is music played by nerds and for nerds. 

The music has a good sound with some half-acoustic guitars and some subtle organs too. The vocals is really cool too.

I am really surprised by this album. It could had been better as it falls a bit short when it comes to really great melodies.

This is a good to very good album, well worth checking out.
