The UK band creates a spellbinding blend of post-rock, progressive rock, and goth on their new full-length.
Formed in Edinburgh and now based in Manchester, Midas Fall focus on the more contemplative side of progressive rock, continuing where the Gathering and Anathema have gone recently, but veering off in their own direction. The key difference is singer Elizabeth Heaton, whose tender voice brings sensitivity to the music, often echoing the likes of Loreena McKennitt and Elizabeth Fraser.
As a result Midas Fall's new album The Menagerie Inside bridges prog and dreampop in a way that hasn't quite been done this way before. Arrangements are sprawling, often reminiscent of Isis, but that distinctly feminine side makes the music feel so much more welcoming and alluring. The album is out today, and you can listen to it below. it's a splendid one.
