Land of Hope

by Contemporary Dead Finnish Music Ensemble

Vocal-oriented prog-influenced pop-rock. One way to describe our music is to imagine a heavy space battleship that is loaded with white lilys and red roses and in place of the engines there are colossal flocks of hummingbirds.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Wonderful!
Magical quality to all songs. Superb. I can hardly wait for the new album erupting later this month. Well done!" -Gregory L. Pendleton, Amazon.com

One way to describe our music is to imagine a heavy space battleship that is loaded with white lilys and red roses and in place of the engines there are colossal flocks of hummingbirds. Heavy solid bottom, eclectic middleground and delicately powerful top makes this band strong and personal sounding. The music is hard-hitting, intensive symphonic rock with lots of room for air and elegance. The songs are melodic and cinematic, progressive without being pompous in a needless manner.

The lineup is:
Katja Sirkiä, vocals
Antti Pesonen, guitars and backing vocals
Matti Jalava, keyboards and backing vocals
Eero Uurtimo, bass
Tuomo Lassila, drums and percussion

Behind this misleading band name, there is a jewel. Sort off….
It is pretty obvious that this band has gone back to the classics in the symponic prog, neo prog and prog metal to come up with their sound. Take a dash of Marillion, Yes, Genesis and Dream Theater = this album. Then add female vocals and some grammes of local flavor and you get Land Of Hope. Or as I want to rename it to; Album Of Hope. Hope is exactly what this band gives me. Hope of a real earth shattering killer album next time around.

The music is in other words clean and based on the classics. The quality is very good throughout. There is no real killer tracks here and even some great tracks is missing here. But my overall impression of this album is very favorable. The songs has some Scandinavian flavor with enchanting darkness and mysticism. The female vocals are excellent and so is the musicianship. The sound too is excellent. Which makes this album a very elegant album.

In my view, this is not a great album. But it is still a jewel and almost essential for those who likes a mix of Marillion and Dream Theater with excellent female vocals. But I am not one of them, though.
