There are two bands named Gazpacho:

The first are a Norwegian band, who have been described by one critic as being “classical post ambient nocturnal atmospheric neo-progressive folk world rock” Gazpacho almost defies genre classification. Gazpacho were at one time described as “the greatest unsigned band in the world” by some critics. A tour of Europe as support for Marillion’s “Marbles” tour in 2003 radically raised their profile, earning the respect of audiences everywhere they played and garnering critical acclaim.

Without the backing of a major label, Gazpacho is one of many bands now utilising the resources of the internet to create word of mouth promotional opportunities, with a reliance on their website and its forum, online shopping, MySpace and other ‘net initiatives to spread the word. This allows the band to hold down full time jobs, yet still manage to release an album a year with total artistic control over their compositions and distribution.

Characterised by moody keyboards, a stunning violin virtuoso, a poignant and relevant rhythm section, ethereal guitars, Jan Henrik Ohme’s floating, pure Hypnotic voice and atmospheric contributions from samples, low whistle, tin whistle, banjo, accordion, didgeridoo and mandolin. This is not a bombastic, pompous progressive outfit, but a cohesive unit that forgoes the technically brilliant but emotionless solo in favour of mood creation through emotive keyboards, layering of textured sounds, use of spatial tension and seamlessly operating as a band not a collective of virtuoso instrumentalists.

    Начиная с 2007 года - каждый их релиз силён, и силён настолько, что ощущаешь себя в неком наркотическом бреду, слушая этих ребят. Особенно ярко проявляется это в Tick Tock и Night. Это гипноз чистой воды. Пару раз послушал - и уже вместо крови по венам гаспачо. А вот Missa Antropos, например, почти неуловимо звучит - вслушиваться надо. Демон тоже пока что очень впечатляет!!

    мне посоветовал их скачать чувак из магазина палёного CD, назвав их ранние альбомы копией Muse. Тут всё намноооого серьёзней.

    Как-то и не думал про концертные записи, спасибо за наводку.

    А я вот скачал когда-то дискографию (на тот момент последним альбомом был "Tick Tock"), закинул в плеер на рандомное воспроизведение и практически все песни проматывал после минутного прослушивания, какими-то невыразительными и скучными они мне казались. До тех пор, пока не попал на "Chequered Light Buildings" в живом исполнении (с того самого "A night at Lorely"). И всё, меня, можно сказать, порвало. Запоем прослушал весь двухдисковый концертник и по сей день считаю его лучшим живым альбомом из всех мной слышанных. А в студийной записи те же самые песни меня как-то совсем уже не цепляют. С той поры с нетерпением жду каждого нового альбома норвежцев и, в особенности, концертников.

    Smekermann, most likely you're right. The more I listen to "Demon" the more I like it. The same was with "Missa Atropos" and "March of ghosts". It needs some time to understand recent Gazpacho's albums, to feel them deeply.

    Я не помню, когда впервые услышал об этой группе, но это точно было очень давно. А вот решился я их послушать только сейчас. Хорошо, однако, что все-таки решился. Оказалось, это настоящий клад.

    also if you find yourself frustrated while listening to it, maybe put on some headphones and listen to it that way. worked for me. that and repeated listens.

    Demon has pretty much everything it needs to make it a classic concept prog rock album, imo - somewhat monolithic songwriting, an album-spanning concept, a somewhat digestible time-span (ie. 46 minutes), multiple musical themes referenced throughout, without devolving into random noodling... this is kind of a modern day prog rock classic, imo.

    MusicMagic77, totally agree with you. In my opinion Gazpacho is one of rare bands that much better sounds live than on studio records. And albums "The Night" and "Tick Tock" which were played at Lorely are trully the best in this band's discography. As to "Demon" I have still not caught on this album but I really can say that it have disappointed my expectations.

    Demon is interesting. Will probably take me more listens to really get into it though! (2)

    Demon 3/5 >> My best loved is their double live "A Night At Loreley" album which is undoubtedly one of their most sophisticated materials both musically and conceptually...

    Never liked Gazpacho that much - but - their latest album DEMON is m-a-g-n-i-f-i-c-e-n-t, simply great!
