Somewhere In the Dark

by Deep Thought

Beeing an eventful, symphonic and bombastic debut full of fine details, this cd is a strong plea for versatile, profound music off the beaten mainstream track. Each song tells its own story - sometimes gloomy and ominous, sometimes phantastic or bizarre.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Time flies like an eagle over valleys and mountains, soaring high in the sky, over the high and the low times, always passing you by - we cannot catch time, but time leaves its footprints behind. Along these lines of thought, the Progressive Rock band Deep Thought from Basel, Switzerland, has revised their artistic work of the preceding five years and captured the strongest impressions of that time on the album "somewhere in the dark", released in autumn 2002 and distributed by Galileo Records.

In spite of the long timespan during which the nine songs were created the album does not at all give the impression of a heterogeneous mixture. On the contrary: Deep Thought mark their music by their own, unique character, although they sometimes are reminiscent of the styles of Marillion or the early Genesis. Most tracks exceed five minutes playing time and many of them exceed ten, which results in a total of over 72 minutes for the nine songs on the album. A certain length of the tracks is considered essential by the band in order to let the moods develop and to be able to employ changes between them effectively. Thus, each song tells its own story - sometimes more gloomy and ominous, sometimes rather phantastic or bizarre - which is taken up and continued in the frequent instrumental parts.

To achieve this, not only harmonic but also rhythmic means are used by Deep Thought to shape their songs. A strong collective where every instrument, including the characteristic vocals by Pat Merz, is an equal part of the whole. An eventful, symphonic and bombastic rock full of fine details is the result. "somewhere in the dark" is a strong plea for versatile, profound music off the beaten mainstream track.
