  • Door de Brexit komen titels die uit de UK afkomstig zijn nog altijd met vertraging binnen. Soms valt het mee en duurt het slechts 2-3 weken, maar het komt helaas ook voor dat we 4 weken of meer moeten wachten. We doen ons best om alles zo goed en snel mogelijk te regelen, maar het blijft lastig...

    TitelOf brine and angel`s beaks
    2e HANDSNee
    GenreProg / Melodic Rock / Metal
    OmschrijvingIf you look at the current scene of progressive rock and metal, you could assume that the times of court jesters, dragons and unicorns are a thing of the past, because spearheads of the genre, such as Haken, Leprous or TesseracT, have nothing at all to do the clichés for which the prog was once known. But then you stumble across a band like Azure and suddenly the legends, myths and fantasy stories are more realistic than they have been since the mid-1970s. This is not only due to the platinum blonde Targaryen mane of front man Christopher Sampson and the imaginative cover artwork by Sophie Steinmore, but also the lyrics of the individual pieces. I don`t have to say more than `The Jester Who Cheated Death` at this point. Azure are no longer unknowns in the Prog scene and should be known to one or the other Euroblast visitor, because in 2019 they made a remarkable appearance in the messed up electric kitchen, the cellar of the Cologne vinegar factory. Even then, the British from the English city of Bristol played the first pieces of their new record "Of Brine And Angel’s Beaks" in addition to tracks from their debut album "Wish For Spring" and aroused anticipation for more. Because as bizarre as the musical mix of the five may have sounded to some ears, it seemed so unique to others. The musical mix that Shaz Dudhia (keyboard), Alex Miles (bass), Christopher Sampson (vocals & guitar), Galen Stapley (guitar), Sol Sinclair (drums) offer their listeners is second to none. Azure fuse emotionally charged progressive rock with the anthem-like energy of power metal and enrich this mixture with 80s synth sounds that seem as if they came from early computer fantasy role-playing games. What is fascinating is that these fantasy sounds are so prominently at the center of the Azure sound cosmos that the virtuoso instrumental work of the band members often only enters the listener`s consciousness after repeated listening. Because "Of Brine And Angel’s Beaks" is a compositionally complex album, whose individual layers first have to be diverged from one another. And so the listener reveals a world of seafarers, acolytes, court jesters, jellyfish and Japanese rainbringers, which in individual moments repeatedly awakens memories of bands like Iron Maiden, Marillion, Jadis or even 80s Yes, but not in its uniqueness really comparable to other representatives of the genre.
