Editorial Reviews

When a band covers a classic song, they'd better make damn sure to do it justice. Tempest's gripping remake of The Grass Roots' 1960's classic anthem, "Let's Live For Today", does just that while urging us to make a difference in the here and now. Extraordinary music for extraordinary times. Tempest is a band with members from 5 different countries, more than 20 years on the road, and the desire to bring their musical tradition to as many people as possible. Tempest is a band with something meaningful to say and the ability to say it while still being very entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Live For Today April 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Since its musical inception in 1988, Tempest has rendered a rampant hybrid of energetic folk-rock, consisting of Irish roots & reels, Scottish and Norwegian ballads and other world and worldly music elements. Another Dawn, the group's 15th release and 12th studio album, showcases a band in the full, tidal flood of creative color and texture.
"Our very first single, LIVE FOR TODAY is a Celtodelic cover of the classic 1967 Grass Roots hit," says Lief Sorbye, founding member, lead singer and mandolinist. "Throughout our entire, 22 year history, it just never occurred to us to produce a single. It took Peter Morticelli suggesting the concept and the song, itself, that got us fired up about this one."

Lief didn't have a previous relationship with the song, though he was familiar with it - it just wasn't well known in Norway. "It came together really organically, I added a bit of Celtic riff to give it an instrumental hook. We were already working on the album and 'Let's Live For Today' fit into the thread of 'Another Dawn' really well. The album has a positive vibe to it, and the message I take out of 'Let's Live For Today' is to enjoy life. I believe the purpose of life is to be happy. It is a great opening track and sets the scene for the other songs on the album."
The second song on the album, VERSES OF GRACE, gave the CD its title. The chorus: 'Joined together, we meet and go on, Gathering light - and it may be the dawn' is the essence of `Another Dawn.' The song was written in honor of the 2009 inauguration - and the last time a crowd that size gathered together in the spirit of hope was Aug 1969 at Woodstock. At that moment, we felt a rebirth of the same values: it was time to look after each other and look after the planet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tempest is a great Celtic Rock Band July 7, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Tempest is a great Celtic Rock Band. The first time, I saw them was over 10 years ago @ Irish Fest in Downtown Chicago. I have been a fan since that Day!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another solid folk rock album from Tempest June 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Another Dawn is the latest offering from long-running Celtic/folk rock band Tempest. This time around, the band is joined by former 3 (the ELP spinoff, not the newer prog band) vocalist Robert Berry, who guests on keyboards and produced the album. Berry, who got to try his hand at folk music several years back with the The Wheel of Time soundtrack, is a good fit for Tempest, considering their emphasis on violins, flutes, mandolins and tambourines over the usual rock instruments (though they're present as well).

The album, the band's eleventh studio release, is an interesting mix of original material, covers and of course traditional Celtic music. It kicks off on a high note with a spirited and utterly enjoyable cover of the Grass Roots' 1967 hit "Live For Today." Three original songs follow, including one - "Verses of Grace" - that was inspired by the 2009 Presidential inauguration. After another cover, this time Andy Irvine's "Never Tire of the Road," we get to the songs where Tempest really shine; songs like "Jomfru," "Black Jack Davy" and "Dagda's Harp," where the band takes centuries-old traditional songs and give them a modern, though always respectful, spin. As always, Tempest makes the most of Celtic-style melodies and a wide array of instruments, plus a solid dose of plugged-in rock elements to capture our attention. The only real downside is that Another Dawn is exactly the kind of album I've come to expect from Tempest, and I have to wonder if they're challenging themselves at all.

Tempest may not be giving us anything we haven't heard before, but they have a style that's identifiable and an energy that's contagious, so it's hard to hold that against them.
