Adventure from Trondheim plays a pretty melodic symphonic prog on their new album New Horizon. New Horizon will be released early next year. The album is the third since the self-titled debut from 2000. The music to Adventure is based on solid instrumentation and good musicians. Pioneering is not the music, but the music is appealing and well played, and I enjoy the music. Artists like Uriah Heep, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Kansas and Camel are inspiration sources for Adventure. The album was mixed by Terje Craig at Craigtones studio and mastered by Jacob Holm Lupo (White Willow).
The band was founded by guitarist Terje Flessen and keyboardist Odd-Roar Bakken in 1995, singer/keyboardist Elen Cath Hopen and bassist/singer/producer Terje Craig joined the band during the recording of Caught In The Web. Drummer Alf Helge Lund joined the band in the autumn of 2014, and lead singer Kjell Myran joined in September 2015.
The writing and recording of this new album began late 2015 was completed in March 2018. Three years in making of the new album! The album features two guest artists, Atmasukha Ananda managed to squeeze in time to record on three tracks in the midst of his hectic schedule as a classical pianist. Flutist Kine Wallum contributes on three tracks plus on one of the bonus tracks. Kine is daughter of the legendary Prudence frontman Prikken Wallum who passed away in 1990.
