If you’re in need of a heavy dose of new prog-rock music, then we’ve got just the suggestion for you! Scotland’s own, Tom Adamson Band, are here with their latest album release, ‘Old View of the New World’, which was released in December last year. With inspiration from Scotland in his music, as well as a lifetime of effort gone into mastering his craft, it’s a safe bet that this is an album worth taking note of. With a sound reminiscent of prog-rock legends such as Deep Purple, you absolutely cannot miss out on this!
Starting off the album is ‘Ballyhoo’, a short track that gives an impactful introduction, setting the mood for an album that promises to be riddled with prog-rock sounds; ending on a solo that keeps that promise, it’s an opening track that makes you sit up and take note. The next track, ‘See the Light’, Adamson gives us the first glimpse of his vocals, which match the quality and tone of the music beautifully – giving the album some pace, it’s another track that is filled with prog-rock sensibilities that keep you hooked. The third track on the album, the album’s namesake, ‘Old View of the New World’, shows us just how good this album is. Influences from jazz shine, with a saxophone meshing with the guitar well which elevates the track, giving a whole new feel to anything we’ve heard so far.
Heading into the rest of the album, tracks such as ‘The Black Dinner’, ‘Sail on the Wind’ and the final track, ‘Stillness of the Night’ really solidify our view that this is an album that you need to know all about. Immense music, fantastic lyrics and influences from both jazz and prog-rock that dovetail nicely in every track. A brilliant album on the whole, it’s one that you need to get to know. Released in December last year, it’s available right now for you to head right into!
