Product Description

Product Description

The new studio album from acclaimed Norwegian post-progressive art rockers Gazpacho return with their new album, March Of Ghosts, which will be released on Kscope in March 2012. Formed in Oslo in 1996 by childhood friends Jon-Arne Vilbo and Thomas Andersen along with Jan-Henrik Ohme (later joined by Mikael Krømer, Lars Erik Asp and Kristian Torp), Gazpacho have honed their unique sound over a string of critically acclaimed albums and numerous tours, including several with long-time supporters Marillion. March Of Ghosts is the band's follow-up to Missa Atropos, which was released on Kscope in 2011 along with the live album, London. London was recorded on the band's recent European tour and the success of this tour helped provide the genesis for March Of Ghosts, as Jon-Arne explains: 'the previous tour gave us lots of inspiration. So, the week after returning we went straight into the studio to capture whatever came.' This material was then honed, dissected and refined throughout the summer and autumn of 2011 to create a coherent whole. While Missa Atropos can be viewed as a concept album, March Of Ghosts is much more as a collection of short tales; 'The idea was to have the lead character spend a night where all these ghosts (dead and alive) would march past him to tell their stories. 'They are short stories. They are a March Of Ghosts. They are tales that need to be told.'

Following the 2011 release Missa Atropos, there were some (not me) that felt Gazpacho's obsession of creating a peice of music that is on par with their masterpiece, Night, had gone too far. March of Ghosts will reward these people 100-fold.

Whilst I agree that Missa Atropos was a dark, multi-layed piece that required many listens to fully reveal the true brilliance created, March of Ghosts is nowhere near as dark, and not as intensly multi-layed. Don't be deceived into thinking it is any less stunning though!

The intrumentation used is new in some places, but played everything is played beautifully and to perfection. When I first put this album on my player I recognised this could only be Gazpacho, and when I arrived at Hell Freezes Over Part 2, I reached my first "WOW" moment.

But the big "WOW" moment arrived after a week of listening to this piece of work!

Gazpacho are masters at the multi-layered sound. Sound that is not obvious at first, but slowly releases itself to you. On first listen, Hell Freezes Over (Parts I, II and IV), and Black Lily, all deliver their charms quickly, but over time the tracks you felt had not initially grabbed you, start to deliver their "WOW" factor.

In March Of Ghosts there are more than one of these moments. What Do I Do?, Golem and THe Dumb suddenly unleash there hidden layers and will have a huge impact on you.

Gazpacho defy a genre and this is one of their charms. If you have the patience love of music enough to seek out music other than what you hear on the radio, there is no doubt Gazpacho provide a more than adequate return on this investment.

There are many musical styles in the World, and whilst it is not possible to be in touch with all, I do believe it is time the World experienced Gazpacho. If it did, March of Ghosts is a very good place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Stunning 26 April 2012
By Norab
Format:Audio CD
Having come across Gazpacho a few times on Amazon. I always said to myself I must have a listen to them at some point. But with so much high quality music round from the like of Riverside, Porcupine Tree, Sylvan, Anathema and Pineapple Thief to name but a few. I just never got round to it.

When I saw they had a new album coming I decided now was the time.

All I can say is I was stupid to wait for so long. This album is incredible. It is a delight to listen to. Thoughtful, melodic, full of different moods and shades. It reveals more and more with each play-through.

I cannot recommend this album highly enough to all who enjoy the music of the afore mentioned bands.

I will certainly be checking out their earlier work.

5.0 out of 5 stars March of Ghosts 19 Mar 2012
By Stalker VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An album based on the tales of a series of ghosts is exactly the type of concept most Gazpacho fans would have hoped for and I couldn't wait for March of Ghosts to arrive. It's another album bubbling with ideas. On initial listen the first two tracks may seem a bit obvious: an atmospheric instrumental leading into a steady, repetitive 4/4 beat. However, what follows opens the album out beautifully to all those deep, deep Gazpacho melodies that they are so adept at. If you found previous album "Missa Atropos" too dark, there is little danger of that here. The songs are sad in places yet often surprisingly uplifting in others. Tragedy just isn't allowed to take hold. It's the kind of music where you can feel tears of joy pushing behind your eyes and that's very rare and precious.

Kscope have done their usual excellent job of making you feel like you've bought something substantial, with a hard backed digibook of atmospheric photo art and lyrics. This should be the standard for all CD packaging.

Gazpacho have been steadily building an exemplary catalogue of brilliant arty prog rock albums and this one is their best so far. Brooding and beautiful, powerful and delicate. This album needs a dark room and maximum volume. Then you are off on an otherworldly journey to the dark side!

5.0 out of 5 stars March of Ghosts 14 Jan 2014
By David
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've only listened to this a few times but it it already starting to grow on me in the way that Gazpacho albums always seem to.

One thing to bear in mind for collectors - the pictured CD on amazon looks a lot like a digipak but the CD that I received was just in a standard plastic case.
