2011 STUDIO ALBUM FROM ACCLAIMED NORWEGIAN POST-PROGRESSIVE ART ROCKERS NOW ON VINYL FOR THE FIRST TIME
Missa Atropos was the 2011 studio album from acclaimed Norwegian Post-Progressive band Gazpacho, and their first for the Kscope label.
The follow-up to 2009's Tick Tock (Album Of The Month - Eclipsed), Missa Atropos is an ambitious concept album.
Dealing with themes of death, fear and loneliness, it combines the band's musical skills and haunting songwriting to create
a beautiful and hypnotic piece of art.
Darker than the band's previous two albums, it still features many distinctive Gazpacho characteristics, such as ambient
passages, classical influences, elements of world music, and samples of coded information sent during the cold war on short wave radio.
Formed in Oslo in 1996 by childhood friends Jon-Arne Vilbo and Thomas Andersen along with Jan-Henrik Ohme (later joined by Mikael Kromer, Robert R Johansen 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.
These albums and tours, the internet and word-of-mouth praise that greeted them, have helped the band build a substantial international fan base. Kscope are releasing their catalogue on vinyl over the course of 2015 ahead of a brand
new studio album coming later in the year.
