Morild - Aves (2013)

The second album from this Norwegian symph prog band.

Morild's first album was a double CD and I am pleased to report that they have scaled back to a single CD this time. Though, it is 75 minutes long. That includes two 20 minutes plus long songs. The other songs are pretty long too. Radio friendly, they are not.

The English vocals still have a heavy Norwegian accent. Flutes is still also very much present in the sound. It seems like flutes in a symphonic prog setting is a trademark Norwegian sound. The Norwegian symph prog sound. Keyboards and guitars are also very much present here.

The music is pretty epic and symphonic. The references to the English scene from the 1970s pretty evident. The music is a bit too pedestrian for my liking. There are no really great tracks here either. This is by all means a good album. I like it, but I don't crave it. Morild has something going here, but they have unleashed their full potential on this album. Better luck next time and I hope we will see them on tour soon.
