Tastefully arranged, melodically gorgeous, and refreshingly unpretentious, Norwegian art rockers Gazpacho have crafted a stunning concept album with Demon, a record that even those with serious prog allergies will find approachable.
Even in more abstruse moments, when Siri Hustvedt’s forays into the further reaches of neurobiological theory demand multiple re-readings, this is a journey through rarified air, where lesser mortals, lacking PhDs or science backgrounds, rarely go.
March of the Ghosts marks the seventh album from Oslo-based Gazpacho. As you'd expect from a prog band well into its career, the new album is a lustrously polished example of artfully composed melodic rock. The fact it's such an overly familiar affair makes it all the more disappointing.
