Jupiter Society - Terraform (Prog Rock Records PRR521)

From Aural Innovations April 2010 update

Carl Westholm created this project last year and this is the bands second record now. Carl is best known for being in Carptree, Krux and Candlemass but this is something quite different. It features 14 different musicians and three different vocalists. The music is very dramatic, intense, and sometimes spacey. This is a very good mixture of heavy guitars, melodic themes and dark keyboards. The voices range from very intense almost screaming to very melodic and beautiful singing. The CD features 7 different tracks. The CD artwork and booklet are quite cool and futuristic and you get all the lyrics and the list of whom of the 17 different people performs on what tracks. The tracks are mostly between 7 and 9 minutes except two shorter pieces. Despite the special themes in the music and dramatic nature of the compositions, this is very vocal focused music in many ways. Pretty impressive CD. I will have to try to hear the first one now.
