Luciferian Light Orchestra - Luciferian Light Orchestra

Luciferian Light Orchestra - Luciferian Light Orchestra
(2015) Adulruna

I really like some of the older orchestrated Therion albums, like "Vovin". Oh yeah, maybe it wasn't obvious - Luciferian Light Orchestra is essentially Therion jumping on the "occult rock" bandwagon. And I'm enjoying it far more than I thought I would. This album is so good I had to import a second copy from Japan, just to get the exclusive bonus track!

The Night Flight Orchestra - Skyline Whispers

The Night Flight Orchestra - Skyline Whispers
(2015) Coroner Records

I thought I had mentioned The Night Flight Orchestra's debut CD on this blog back in 2012, but I guess I must've missed it? I really liked their high speed hard rock sound then (think Kiss with no time to loose!), and I like their sound even more now. This is a fabolous second CD, and it's just perfect as my music taste has shifted into retro sounding rock'n'roll (don't worry it's just a late summer habit of mine!).

Ashbury Heights - Take Cair Paramour

Ashbury Heights - Take Cair Paramour 2CD
(2010) Out Of Line

Listening to, and writing about, Ashbury Heights latest album "The Looking Glass Society" two weeks ago made me re-explore their second CD "Take Cair Paramour". And what an album it is. I don't care that much for the remixes and demos on the bonus CD, the main album is where the magic's at. I guess this is some kind of synth pop, maybe with some gothic influences? I like it a lot!

Advance - Deus Ex Machina (Redux)

Advance - Deus Ex Machina (Redux)
(2015) Analogue Trash

This is basically a 2CD version of Advance's 2014 debut album "Deus Ex Machina", an album I'm really fond of. I haven't recieved my 2CD yet, the Bandcamp download will have to do in the mean time. There's a couple of the 11 bonus tracks, not present on the original release, that I don't care for. But over all, this release is a big improvent over the original CD!
