Yet despite falling production costs an album of one's one still means selling at a loss for most local heroes. Only a small amount of bands are lucky enough to make a small profit with the works produced by themselves.
The result is "Out of the Waste Land". The musicians have also attached a lot of importance to the packaging, and thus the CD comes with a beautiful booklet and lavish illustrations. For people who like this kind of music however, "Out of the Waste Land" is a must. Songs like the opener The Edge Of The World - Flying Circus - Out Of The Waste Land Edge of the World" or the epic "Holding On" have got everything you might like these styles of music for: great guitar solos, wonderful melody lines and finely dosed psychedelic elements.
The very successful cover already displays the fact that these guys from Southern Germany sic! The opener "The Edge of the World" starts very promising and is quite an intricate piece you will certainly have to listen to more than once.
The following number, "Turn Around", also starts quite subdued, and it is here where the 70ies fully come alive - Led Zeppelin could not have made a The Edge Of The World - Flying Circus - Out Of The Waste Land successful What Size Shoe Do You Wear - Silver Moult / Sorcerer Torturer - Fecalibrium/Grotesqueticles. The short folk-like instrumental "Waste Land" is then followed by "Talk and Thought"- the longest number of the album by far and a song that pulls out all the musical stops: Sometimes harmonic, sometimes driving, sometimes shuffling, and FLYING CIRCUS do not neglect the importance of melody for a minute!
The last number, "No Reason to Worry", is just as convincing and revives the 70ies completely in a spectacular finale. Werner Watarczyk. All this is outdone however by "See Me Trying" where the Middle Ages make their entrance in an unusual yet unusually convincing way. Even Steve Hillage could not have made a better effort at his peak! Likewise, "Waste Land", a delicate acoustic ballad is simply beautiful and convincing with its Celtic touch great hurdy gurdy employment.
Prologue Why, hello! Pulling the CD out of the envelope alone lets me suspect that this will prove a very good album: An exemplary info sheet and a high gloss print at that and a really elegant CD. Considering the sheer variety of influences, it would be an endless undertaking to deal with the individual songs. With its maxim the band has not coined an empty phrase, no But not only that: The stylistic diversity reaches from melancholic 70ies Hard Rock to genuine prog rock, enriched by elements of blues, folk, psych, kraut and jazz.
Some guitar solos at Lyra - Kevin Keller Trio - Across The Sky end of the opener for example even slightly recall Iron Maiden If you think all this must result in an incongruous hotchpotch of influences and styles you are more than wrong.
Adding to the great atmosphere are the excellent, somewhat old-school type sound and the artistically immensely commendable booklet, which was completely designed by the band members themselves Conclusion One of the prog surprises of the year! This band stands an excellent chance to break out of the underground if it keeps at it promotion-wise at the internet front.
