Description/Reviews
A new progressive music project, Zeitgeist is a collaborative music endeavor featuring members of the progressive rock bands Happy The Man, Oblivion Sun, and the Pedal Giant Animals project. The recording project started out as an idea for a Happy The Man reunion CD, but evolved to include many other musicians so another Pedal Giant Animals project was born.

Description/Reviews
Following the success of «Meeting Point» (2016), the Norwegian instrumentalists keep diving into their love of different styles. Although they still sort of fit the description «Progressive Rock meeting Fusion», the songs on «Nightscape» have a more traditional, song-based structure, taking inspiration from some of the great pop music of the 20th century. Also adding more cinematic textures to the songs gives this release another dimension.
