White Willow – Terminal Twilight

0
Sometimes I get to hear about a band name and I just stare, like a cat in front of a mirror… “Maaan, do I know these guys? What if they’re famous and I’m just bubbling around”? Yeah, it happens to me all the time… White Willow is a huge band and I better learn more about them… AND listen more, naturally. Sixteen years of existence, six albums released, six amazing musicians…

This Norwegian band – not all members are Norwegian though – is one of the most classic Art Rock (aka Progressive and everything else) bands all around Europe! “Terminal Twilight” is simply following the footsteps of their previous “children”. Psychedelic, amazing musical intermissions, oceans of sounds (flutes included) and beautiful female vocals. Do you like King Crimson? Well then… Don’t look further, just listen to this band and adore them. They’re playing cool music, they’re loose, then they get bored and they play those super tough things only Dream Theater can play.
 
It’s been five years since their previous album… According to their quote over their official website, “OK, so it took a little while”… Don’t you worry, fellas, we ain’t gonna get mad at you. As long as you’re mixing Broadway with Prog music so wonderfully…
