More information: “Hail” is an atmospheric and eclectic musical journey based on creating visual landscapes inspired by various artists, films and composers from the impressionistic era (particularly Debussy and Ravel).
Hail as a whole takes the listener through intense King Crimson and Tool inspired dark metal riff driven musical passages contrasted with moments of ethereal soundscapes and guitar/keyboard driven soaring melody lines inspired by the work of Progressive musicians of the 70’s to present (Andy Latimer/Eric Johnson) and influenced by a range of musical styles including jazz, orchestral, electronic and folk.
The sound palette is made up of an array of guitar sounds that came as a result of experimentation/Acoustic Guitars/ Moog/ Hammond Organ/ Drums (Recorded in a theatre)/ Large Multi tracked Hackett influenced vocal lines.
Featuring Rob Reed of Magenta.
