Norway's godfathers of modern prog, White Willow, return after a lengthy hiatus with their most adventurous album to date. With a killer line-up including Änglagård drummer Mattias Olsson as well as Willow stalwarts Jacob Holm-Lupo (The Opium Cartel), Lars Fredrik Frøislie (Wobbler), Ketil Einarsen (Jaga Jazzist, Motorpsycho), singer Sylvia Skjellestad (nee Erichsen) and newcomer Ellen Andrea Wang on bass guitar, the band deliver their best performance to date.
Combining the best of the band's eclectic history, Terminal Twilight fuses the symphonic rock of Sacrament, the dark prog of Storm Season and the pastoral folk of their earliest albums - and adds a slightly more experimental and playful twist to the whole mix. Fans of atmospheric, gothic-tinged Nordic prog will delight both in the washes of analog keys and the wistful, folk-inflected melodies.
The album also features distinguished guest appearances from No-Man's Tim Bowness, Gösta Berlings Saga's David Lundberg and The Nerve Institute's Michael S. Judge. The album is lavishly packaged in artwork by renowned NY artist Rene Lynch and comes as a 6-panel digi-pack.
