Être: “II Humane” CD and LP and Digital 9th September 2023 Self-released. Denmark progressive rock band.
From time to time, a band gets out of the ordinary music path, as set in the business world. A lot of bands in the eighties talked about politics, each music style had its messages. Être is a very original and different band from the masse. They decided to speak about the human being, they divided the story into three chapters. Like the modern movies, you can set up in an imaginary world except this is about a real thing.
Music that leads to thinking, emotions, feelings, and in a peaceful place together. Dig the music, and let yourself go on this peaceful journey on a cloud of beauty. It has a kind of spiritual touch. I never heard a topic such profound and worked so much in a musical way. Sadness in a happy way. On the edge of Gothic, deep dark Black Metal vibe but it is still progressive rock.
An artistic power is hard to define and explain. Each will have their own feeling about it. Être is an extraordinary band. Sending you into another world where music has no boundaries and will get you diverse thoughts.
Have a taste and get absorbed :
Influences Pink Floyd, Yes, Dream Theater, Evanescence, Obsidian 55, Antirope, Messugha, Paramore, Queen, Jean Michel Jarre, Within Temptation, and many more.
Five tracks to blast your imagination and set your brain free from this pollution. I personally think each track follows in the right order, sometimes you prefer changing the order to your liking. In this EP I can say it flows nicely and can’t stop pressing play again.
Progressive music has been here for decades and it’s normal that it blends lots of influences from the diverse music styles we have heard since the seventies. The powerful and melodic voice, among the pounding drums and piano set an appreciative atmosphere.
A Must-have 100/100.
