I Beardfish annunciano "The Void" - nuovo album e tour con i Flying Colors

Il nuovo album degli svedesi Beardfish, dal titolo The Void, sarà pubblicato il 27 agosto e, a quanto pare, marcherà una svolta verso suoni più pesanti e dark. I Beardfish sono tra le migliori realtà del prog scandinavo grazie ad album imperdibili come The Sane Day e Sleeping in Traffic part 2, anche se l'ultimo Mammoth è stato alquanto deludente. Vedremo questo The Void quali sorprese ci porterà. Ecco il comunicato:

Only about 1 ½ years after the release of their last record "Mammoth", Beardfish are now back with a new masterpiece. "The Void" will be released on August 27th 2012 in Europe and on August 28th 2012 in the US via InsideOutMusic. It is darker, heavier and in some parts it even has a bit of a metal edge to it, while still incorporating all that Beardfish and their typical warm retro-sound stand for.

The band comments: "We went full-on with this one... We've had some trouble in the past to convey our live energy on the studio albums. This is the one that shines through, I think! It's an album about loss. It's about love. It celebrates both life and death and the struggle in between to heal the wounds that don't show and to actually take the step to move forward in life. We've been waiting to share these songs with all of you for a while now and we, Beardfish, are really proud to present to you 'The Void'"

I Beardfish sono il gruppo prog che più mi ha colpito qualche anno fa. The sane day è stato una folgorazione. Sleeping in traffic pt 1 il degno seguito.
Ma poi la fiamma si è un po' spenta, e i due lavori successivi, pur con spunti notevoli, non erano all'altezza.
Mi pare soprattutto che si siano un po' accartocciati su loro stessi e si sono sempre più allontanati dal capolavoro che era The Sane Day
Mammoth poi era addirittura insufficiente.
Vedremo questo
