    Pymlico

    PYMLICO is the new project from Norway, and ‘Influences’ being their first fruit. The ‘chairman’ Arild Brøter has written music and plays guitar, percussion, keyboards, grand piano, rhodes, mellotron, minimoog. Additionally, he involved a plethora of friends…

    Right from the start it’s obvious that Arild is a very accomplished composer and arranger. This totally instrumental album sounds clean and polished. It won’t take many listens to appreciate the intelligent style by refers to classic progressive rock like Genesis, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Focus and modern group TFK to mention. All compositions have interesting layers, complex passages and deep structure. The content is of a high quality and well produced. Great piece of work is really accessible with lots of atmosphere.

    Pymlico should be warmly welcomed by the Sympho-Prog scene. Why? Because the feel of ‘Influences’ is a tribute to the legendary era. Hopefully, Arild Brøter has enough of new material written for the next release. I for one will certainly be taking an interest in hearing how Pymlico have developed.

    Arild Broter again succeeds in producing an excellent sympho-progressive album, which shows a remarkable stuff. Although instrumental offering, ‘Directions’ have enough variation between its six pieces to hold the listener’s attention. There are multiple time changes while the music varies from the mellow passages to impressive riffing, allowing the individual tracks to create their own emotions and character. Every spin can add gentle nuances, particularly from the keyboards that ebb and flow or strong percussion mantle. Subtlety is the name of such game! Since Arild Broter has a deep love for progressive rock of the Golden 70's era (Genesis, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Camel, ELP, UK etc...), influences are heavily stamped over ‘Directions’. This release is dedicated to musical legends…

    PYMLICO is primarily a solo project, but several guests display their melodic interactions. The production is clear to allow all contributions to be heard. For further information, check out the new official website.

    Pymlico's new album is to be released in September (15th). It contains seven tracks with a total length of 51 minutes. And I am absolutely sure that 'Guiding Light' will be adored by many fans of instrumental sympho-prog music.

    Pymlico now bring their most mature work to date, entitled ‘Guiding Light’. From the opener ‘A Day Out' until the farewell passages of seventh track 'Neptune' the musical content sounds like entrancing alchemy with lots of room to maneuver, plenty of scope to explore a level of diversity, nice melodies in abundance. It draws the listener into journey of emotion and thought. Being a very good composer, arranger, drummer, keyboardist, guitar player, Arild Brøter still remains loyal to his source of inspiration: the halcyon days of the Golden era. In terms of construction, CD ‘Guiding Light’ has relation to Alan Parsons Project as well as apparent vibes of Genesis, interrupted by Arabic motifs and jazzy elements. All accents are superbly executed. The use of distinctive credentials, subtle nuances and variety should satisfy prog aficionados. So…if vocals aren’t a prerequisite, then this excellent album is for you.
