Editorial Reviews

2012 album from the acclaimed Norwegian Post-Progressive Art rockers. March Of Ghosts is the band's follow-up to Missa Atropos, which was released on Kscope in 2011 along with the live album, London. London was recorded on the band's recent European tour and the success of this tour helped provide the genesis for March Of Ghosts, as member Jon-Arne Vilbo explains: 'the previous tour gave us lots of inspiration. So, the week after returning we went straight into the studio to capture whatever came.' This material was then honed, dissected and refined throughout the summer and autumn of 2011 to create a coherent whole. While Missa Atropos can be viewed as a concept album, March Of Ghosts is much more as a collection of short tales; 'The idea was to have the lead character spend a night where all these ghosts (dead and alive) would march past him to tell their stories. 'They are short stories. They are a March Of Ghosts. They are tales that need to be told.'

Disc flows from track to track with some great prog and the disc, to me is more of a single song of short stories.

Gazpacho's songs are simple and yet it is very apparent that they thoughtfully consider every note to create the exact, perfect feel and resonance.

Ironically, Gazpacho confirms that it is one the most interesting progressive bands out there without being that progressive in the standard sense.

Everything about Gazpacho seems effortless and unassuming, which is probably why they are the best band most people have never heard of. I know, they are not alone in the category but they are at the top of the list... The band, not to be confused with the argentine rockers of the same name (... like the Amazon web site does) confirms their talent with March of Ghosts. The album was recorded pretty much in one single week-end at the end at the Missa Atropos tour, with the band as tight and efficient as possible but not worn out. And yet, it sounds as good as if they had spent a month with multiple takes.

Following up on 2010 Missa Atropos, for my money that year's best album, was of course difficult but it is clearly in the same vein. The two previous albums, 2007's Night and 2009's Tick Tock, each had a different personality but March of Ghosts is clearly a musical and mood follow-up to Missa. With one variation: Kristian Skedsmo -aka The Duke- guest polyinstrumentalist who had brought a lot of texture to earlier band releases but was absent from Tick Tock and Missa Atropos, is back with a vengeance and lends his arsenal of flutes, whistles, banjos and mandolas to create a more varied sound that even drifts sometimes into celtic territory (Mary Celeste). As they observe in the liner notes: "if it sounds strange, there's a chance it's The Duke!".

This is a fantastic album by one of the best bands in the world. I'm mostly a rock fan (Porcupine Tree and Pineapple Thief are my two favorite bands) but Gazpacho carves a completely unique and powerful niche in the music world - they are incomparable. March of Ghosts is varied and complex, full of songs that make you FEEL. "Hell Freezes Over IV," "The Dumb" and "What Did I Do" are my faves.

The U.S. radio market stinks with horrible repeats of shallow dreck. You really have to look if you care about your music. I'll assume since your reading this review, you do care about what your listening to and music does make a difference to you. I love my prog but the few bands that remain my favorites can not keep up with my need for new music. Marillion, IQ, Pendragon, Porcupine Tree and now Gazpacho. This is their new disc and if you know anything about this band and like their music, you will not be disappointed with this album. Disc flows from track to track with some great prog and the disc, to me is more of a single song of short stories. Like a lot of prog, not a single song type of disc but a album listen. Take your time and enjoy. Many thanks to Marillion and Porcupine Tree for turning me on to this band.

Gazpacho's latest cd is an amazing work. this is not for everybody, there's no pop in here, but a collection of songs take may take a while to get the casual listener, but it's worth the try. Amazing music from an amazing Band.

I discovered Gazpacho a couple of years ago and have been playing their music constantly since then. Each of their albums has a mood and a feel. It is impossible to peg Gazpacho into a slot, such as "prog," because their music borrows from so many different influences.

Of the last four Gazpacho albums I would probably rate March of Ghosts as number four. However, never in my long history of listening to music have I heard a band release four stunning albums in a row (Night, Tick Tock, Missa and March).

March of Ghosts is a non-concept/concept album. It is not a concept album in the sense of a linear narrative, but there is a thread that runs through each song. These are the stories of people living through emotional experiences. One of my favorite tracks is Black Lily. The song is really about two people: a lost, depressed person, and the friend who is trying to bring him/her back. The song is sad and yet hopeful. The genius of a band like Gazpacho is evident in a song like this where the chorus includes the sad yet powerful sound of the violin, as the friend pleads for the person's return. Gazpacho's songs are simple and yet it is very apparent that they thoughtfully consider every note to create the exact, perfect feel and resonance.

The other stories on this album are all thoughtful and often emotional. Something that you don't find much in music today. The band had certain things in mind when writing the songs but each song can also mean something different to each listener. Gazpacho's music sometimes takes more than a few listens to appreciate everything that is happening. The effort is always worth it. They are truly the best I have heard in a long, long time. If you are even thinking of buying, don't hesitate. You will be rewarded.
