Gazpacho Molok on 180g LP + Download
Molok, the follow up to Norwegian art-rock progressive outfit Gazpacho's acclaimed 2014 album Demon, sees the band continue to push the boundaries and create one of their most complicated and strangest concepts yet. Across the album's evocative 8-tracks there are religious themes going head to head with modern day new science ideas and theories.
Gazpacho's Thomas Andersen states, "the album itself is about a man that sometime around 1920 decides that wherever anyone worships a God they always seem to be worshiping stone in some form. Whether it is a grand cathedral, the stone in Mecca or Stonehenge. God seems to have been chased by his worshipers into stone never to return. This harkens back to Norwegian folk myths where if a troll was exposed to sunlight it would turn to stone but it also reflects the way God has been incommunicado for a very long time."
Molok features guest musicians Stian Carstensen from the eclectic group Farmers Market on accordion and ethnic instruments, and music archaeologist Gjermund Kollveit playing the aga stone (one of the oldest known instrument ever to be recorded). Kscope will be releasing Molok on gatefold 180g vinyl with an accompanying download code included.
