Inside Out


Two years ago after « Building An Empire », the French group Demians comes back with “Mute”. When I say the group it is in fact a one man band which becomes a group for the lives, with different musicians. The style is sill the same that is to say progressive rock. As for the first album Nicolas Chapel plays of all the instruments. He uses only real instruments such as cello, double bass, violin, drums, mellotron and piano and there are no samples on this album. He also took care of the composition, the production and the interpretation.
You can compare Nicolas Chapel to Steven Wilson from Porcupine Tree. The compositions are dark as a whole.  The album is well balanced between darkness, softness, intimacy, melancholy and there are a lot of feelings felt while listening the songs. “Overhead” is a kind of different song by its oriental ambience. The lyrics deal with problems and how to find the way to make them disappear.
A nice progressive rock album to listen and to appreciate.
For fans of groups such as Porcupine Tree, Oceansize...
