Orne – The Conjuration by the Fire (2006)

Orne_ConjurationFire4 out of 5 Stars!

From Finland comes a different sort of Prog-Rock release, with much of Orne’s music sounding to me like a mixture of groups such as Nektar and Jethro Tull, but with a retro “Heavy Psych” style and atmosphere that reminds me of bands such as Landskap and Witchwood.

Generally, the music on The Conjuration by the Fire is somewhat laid back, moody, almost sinister at times, with even a hint of “doom” or “stoner” rock, thanks undoubtedly to several members having various links to Doom/Black Metal or Gothic Rock groups.

So imagine a “darker” version of Jethro Tull, Black Widow, or Shadow Theory, with flute included, and also with a singer (using the stage name Magister Albert Witchfinder, I kid you not) similar in tone and delivery to the legendary Jim Morrison, and that’s what you’ll find on tracks such as “Frontline Dreams,” “In the Vault,” “Anton,” “Opening by Watchtower,” and the epic closer “Lighthouse.”
