Wobbler is Norway’s leading symphonic prog band, formed in Hønefoss in 1999. Classic prog influences (Gentle Giant, Yes, King Crimson, Museo Rosenbach, Genesis, PFM and so on) and a vast array of vintage sounds. Features members of Tusmørke, White Willow, The Chronicles of Father Robin and ex-Jaga Jazzist.
Highly regarded by prog connoisseurs across the globe, Wobbler has an extensive fanbase in Scandinavia, Europe and North-America. They’ve previously released three highly acclaimed albums, this is their first on Karisma Records.
On “From Silence to Somewhere” Wobbler cooks an enigmatic, multi flavoured and adventurous brew in the olde black cauldron. Poignant and edgy guitar riffs, melancholic and harmonious verses, powerful crescendos, energetic spinet driven passages and the odd touch of flamenco and italian recitals. Four epic songs, clocking in at 47 minutes.
Thematically spun around a wondering view on metamorphosis, change and alchymism – a bit of a continuation from the previous album “Rites at Dawn”, but slightly darker and introspective.
Musically, there’s a connection to all of the three previous albums, while at the same time making new ground.
Inspiration from renaissance music and old Italian prog has seeped into the mix, as well
