DAYMOON - Cruz Quebrada

2016 (Progressive Promotion Records) - Stil: Transregressive Rock

DAYMOON was originally a solo project of Fred Lessing which he started after the unsuccessful years with his two bands DEAD LANDSCAPE and POR TER LIDO MAL O MAPA.

He released some albums at the beginning of the century - only digital. Since DAYMOON are outgrown of the project character, all albums of which can regularly published from 2011, were awarded - since ´All Tomorrows´ - a real band.

The latest work of DAYMOON has become a concept album again. But this time, Fred Lessing tragically processed the death of his wife Inês. ´Cruz Quebrada´ is accordingly a dark record - in the tradition of PINK FLOYDs 'Animal' or latter-day of PHIDEAUX.

The first half of the album called ´Out´ deals with all the suffering, with the topic of cancer and death. Fred Lessing wrote it before and shortly after the death of his wife. ´Fish Dissected´ reveals echoes of KING CRIMSON and GENTLE GIANT. In ´Where It Hurts Most´ the narrative structure alternates with clutching violin sounds. ´Shipwreck´ has a slight DIRE STRAITS-flair, ´Whalebone‘ is a dark songwriter-song.

The second half of the album (called ´In‘) leads Lessing back into his life, back into an entirely new life, without forgetting his old one. ´The River´ leads the protagonists back into the fast-moving time. With harmonica, increasingly emerging happiness in singing and Brian May-Memorial-Solo (´The Single-Most Expensive Kiss In History ´) life begins 2.0. The instrumental group played formidably on (`Headlong´), the mood caught up briefly again in their dark phase, although the flute slowly trying to lift the veil (´I Abraham´). Translucent as in ´Bonne Voyage´ it will not last, because the trumpets of hysteria hit promptly (`Ghost´). The last minutes follow the path of LED ZEPPELIN in the acoustic track ´Indian White´ - with a soulful voice. The last sounds and words announced ´Onward´: "Let me rest now beside you on the grass, I am out of breath So let me look at you Good morning, my love..."

[Nicht nur die hervorragende Musik macht dieses Album so unterstützenswert, sondern die Tatsache, dass alle Erlöse an die europäische Krebshilfe Europacolon gehen!]
