Please welcome for the first time on the rock, from Norway: Wobbler !
WOBBLER is by many considered to be Norway's leading symphonic progressive rock band, and have released 4 albums of symphonic prog with a distinct vintage vibe, since they were formed in the small Norwegian town of Hønefoss in 1999. They are known for their love for analog equipment and the overall estethics of the 60's and 70's.
The bands current lineup features current and former members of TUSMØRKE, WHITE WILLOW, THE CHRONICLES OF FATHER ROBIN, LUKAS KASHA, SPIRITS OF THE DEAD, AIRBAG and IN LINGUA MORTUA. With Lars Fredrik Frøislie on keyboards and backing vocals, Kristian Karl Hultgren on bass, bass clarinet and bass pedals, Martin Nordrum Kneppen on drums, percussion and recorder, Andreas Wettergreen Strømman Prestmo on vocals, guitar, glockenspiel and percussion and Geir Marius Bergom Halleland on lead guitar and backing vocals, the band can avail itself of a considerable array of instruments that have a huge, and very interesting impact, on the overall sound.
Their last album, "From Silence to Somewhere", offers up a sound that is enigmatic, multi-flavoured and adventurous with the use of copious amounts of Mellotron, Moog, Hammond, Chamberlin and other classical analogue keyboards, and of course the renowned Rickenbacker bass. The guitar riffs go from poignant to edgy. Melancholy harmonies combine with powerful crescendos and high-energy, spinet-driven passages, flavoured with a touch of Flamenco, italian recitals and Renaissance music to produce an album comprising four epic tracks that explore the idea of metamorphosis and alchemy. It is a natural continiuation from WOBBLER's previous albums, but with a darker, more introspective edge. The album has been reviewed in over 20 different countries around the world since its release in October 2017.
