Editorial Reviews

Product Description

In this year of 2012, the musical direction of German proggers Dark Suns is clearly that of Rock! Instead of once again serving up complex and elaborate slabs of Prog Metal, Dark Suns' mode of operation on their new album "Orange" is a lot more spontaneous and rocking flagrantly flirting with classic (Prog) Rock of the Seventies and a more easy-going sound than ever before. The result is a mature and captivating album that bristles with a youthful élan and, for all its reverence for the classical roots, does not forget the meaning of the word 'progressive'. Orange is available in both a regular jewelcase edition and a special limited 2 CD/DVD edition in deluxe digipak format.

Review

'Orange' can be mentioned in the same breath with the new works of Steven Wilson and Opeth! --Eclipsed

5.0 out of 5 stars The Music Initiative Review June 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Dark Suns' fourth studio album, Orange, abandons their previous straightforward approach to the modern progressive sound for a more fleshed out, classical 70s inspired prog-rock style that harkens back to the days of bands like Yes and King Crimson. From the very opening riff on the bombastic and organ style keyboard-laden "Toy" to the albums epic finale, "Antipole," with its constant changeups leading into a flawless and slow building emotional interlude, the band shines like never before. Ekkehard Meister's work on the keys stuns throughout this release. Most the tracks are very upbeat and catchy and all have a signature sound that remains consistent with the overall feel. A staggering range of vocals are on display, including comically high pitched on "That is Why They All Hate You in Hell" to melancholic and brooding on "Vespertine." Dark Suns proves with Orange that they are one of Germany's finest lineups of rock musicians. With a sound that anyone from casual rock listeners to even the most tasteful of prog veterans can appreciate, they are surely a force to be reckoned with.

I had previously sampled a track from this album, per recommendation by a friend and decided the track was unique and purchased the album. What an absolute delight and unexpected treasure. This album is highly recommended.
