...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

SKY ARCHITECT REVIEW


From the Netherlands comes the Dutch progressive rock band Sky Architect with their highly anticipated third album "A Billion Years Of Solitude." The new album was released on November 4th on Galileo Records and carries a classic prog-rock sound, but with a heavy metal edge.

The eighteen-minute opener "The Curious One" starts out sounding like the perfect follow-up to King Crimson's "In The Court Of The Crimson King." They add elements of metal with Pink Floydian, space-like soundscapes in order to bring their influences into today's modern music world. Sky Architect sound more like Tool with the harder dark sounds of "Tides, before stretching out their talents on the ten-minute "Elegy Of A Solitary Giant." The shortest song on the album, "Jim's Ride To Hell" is pure progressive metal, while the twelve-minute album closer "Traveller's Last Candle" brings you on a journey with some flashes of grunge alongside, jamband experimentation to create some uniquely appealing music.
