Gazpacho strömmar Missa Atropos


Norska Gazpacho har beskrivits som a bit more accessible than RADIOHEAD, more diversified than MARILLION and more proggy than COLDPLAY.

Själva säger dom att deras musik är filmer utan bilder.

Bandet har just släppt sitt sjätte album – Missa Atropos – vilket kan avlyssna strömmande här.

Bandet skriver på sin hemsida om albumet:

In greek mythology, Atropos was one of the three Moirae, goddesses of fate and destiny. Atropos was the oldest of the Three Fates, and was known as the "inflexible" or "inevitable". It was Atropos who chose the mechanism of death and ended the life of each mortal by cutting their thread with her "abhorred shears".

To find out what a mass would be like, we envisaged a story of a man who cuts all ties to the world and moves to a lighthouse to write a mass for Atropos and to taste true solitude. The title is also a wordplay on misanthropy which I suppose plays a part in the concept as well.

The album tells the story of what happens inside his head and includes three of his attempts to write the mass as well as the final Missa Atropos.
