It’s been a while since I’ve written about a prog-rock-band, so here we go again:
Drom contacted me on myspace, and it surely sounded interesting enough to make me look deeper into the band. Well, actually… there’s not too much to say about them yet. The four Norwegian guys only founded Drom in January 2007, rising out of the ashes of “extremly unknown band” In Media Res. 8 months was enough for them to release a Demo-EP, and what you can hear on that is damn fine stuff!
The influences of the band are mostly neo-prog bands like Porcupine Tree, Opeth or Dream Theater, but you’ll be able to also find some hints of alternative bands like say Radiohead or Sigur Rós; and on Cup Of Coffee, you will also be transported back to those old-school-prog-days. The four-track-EP really shows a new band with a lot of potential. I’m looking forward to hear more from these guys!
The EP is fully available for free. You can download two of the tracks here, or all four of them on the band’s MySpace. Don’t miss it!
