Prog Reviewer

3 stars Mimic bands, I kind of almost enjoy the term, coined by a fellow PA reviewer, describing the retro look alike sound of contemporary bands doing this kind of early Progressive Music flashbacks in this case Prog-Electronic ones.

I have yet not found a way to enjoy these "tributes" to bands, musicians or even releases I do still enjoy. To me life is too short as to repeat it, in anyway or anykind of time-life span energy consuming, task.

When E-MUSIKGRUPPE LUX OHR's "Kometenbahn", 2013, sounds like themselves, is when I realize how hard it is to have your OWN musical idiom in any music field or sub-genre, but above all how easy it is to undermine it or, even worse, ignore it in favour of comfort.

Great and very creative small, but truly unique, sections do happen, but as told, most of the time it will be almost impossible not to be reminded of Enigma (Michael Cretu's one, in this release's first track) and then Progressive Electronic and Krautrock bands and musicians of yore.

Polished, structured, friendly and promising first release.

***3 PA stars.

— First review of this album —
4 stars The title says it all - this has been recorded live, at Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, The Netherlands. Eh ... okay, it's a bit inaccurrate somehow as they also offer a live take from Helsinki 2013 here. But never mind! Who cares? This one completes the fine double vinyl, showing atmospheric trips overall. So here we have four scores, if you will, some are devided in several partitions, which you won't notice though when listening. Each vinyl side develops in one go, where you can sum this up under the label Kosmische Musik at best.

Some distinctive conspicuousness is to remark when it comes to this E-Musikgruppe hailing from Finland. For example they are not reduced on analog and digital synthesizers solely, at least as long as Kimi Kärki uses his electric guitar as well. And he extensively does for sure, even adding a slight acid note in some cases. Besides the band name also the track titles are in German, which might be appointed as a clear reference to their main influence, the almighty Berlin School based electronic music.

And indeed, this partially sounds inspired by Tangerine Dream and Manuel Göttsching related acts in particular. Though equipped with enough distinctiveness to arrouse attention amongst hundreds (thousands?) of acts trying to compose electronic music. Die Suche Nach Dem Horizont is exemplary, provided with a looping beat and ambient/spacey patterns. Synths and guitars are playfully alternating with solo excursions, until the scene changes again into a gorgeous relaxed flow. This album will need more than one go to explore the beauty in total. Recommended!

Review by Matti
Prog Reviewer

4 stars This is a very retro-styled electronic music group from Turku, Finland. Some of the members are known from other Turku-based bands in the ProgArcives: Ismo virta from folk-oriented KOSMOS and guitarist Kimi Kärki from the eclectic prog act ORNE. Kometenbahn is the first of the two full length studio albums released this far.

All titles are in German, underlining the influence of the 70's "Berlin school", ie. TANGERINE DREAM, KLAUS SCHULZE, ASH RA TEMPEL/ MANUEL GÖTTSCHING and many other Electronic/Krautrock names. Brief 'Prolog im Himmel' features the synthetic narrative, sonically similar to the one in the beginning of TD's 'Bent Cold Sidewalk' (Cyclone, 1978). 'Durch Den Kosmischen Dunst' (11:26) is the longest track, spacey and soft-sounding like the classic SCHULZE stuff, but more economically progressive. Guaranteed to please if you enjoy the mentioned artists.

'Nachtgeist' is built on a bass pulse over which electric guitars and synths weave their deeply atmospheric webs. Slowly evolving 'Sonnenwind' takes more time to impress the listener who has to be patient. But anyone familiar with artists such as Klaus Schulze are that, right? The sixth and final track is titled 'Mythos' after a less known German band. All tracks are filled with fascinating soundscapes, and compared to the Spiralo (2014) that features two 19-minute epics, this is in my opinion the more rewarding album.

This finely crafted music doesn't achieve to surprise the listener, it openly shows the deep respect to the 70's pioneers of Progressive Electronic, and offers a superb listening pleasure in their vein. An excellent addition to the friends of the genre!

Thanks to sheavy for the artist addition.
