Genre(s)Eclectic Progressive Rock/Metal

Kevin Handlon - bass, mandolin
Lauren Vieira - keys, clean vocals

Description/Reviews
For their fourth long player, DREADNOUGHT follow-up their 2017 A Wake In Sacred Waves acclamation with an album that takes their singular multiplex and pictorial sound to new sonic realms even more heavily textile, complex, and vastly designed.  Emergence sees the four-piece delving more into heavier and darker sonic territory as well, an aspect that was evident with A Wake... but has become fully realized with Emergence.

Bjorn Riis "A Storm Is Coming"


Country: Norway
Genre(s)Progressive Rock
LabelKarisma Records
FormatCD, vinyl, digital
Release date: May 03, 2019 
Tracklist
1. When Rain Falls

Line-up
Bjørn Riis (Airbag): vocals, instruments
   With:

Description/Reviews
Six epic songs clocking in at 51 minutes, built around the central themes of human relations and loss, written as a dialogue between two persons.
A Storm Is Coming is both heavier and more tender than the previous releases, and Bjørn Riis manages to majestically combine the art of rock, prog and atmospheric pop.
