MorPheusz - Days of delirium & nocturnal nightmares (MP3)

Price: €9,90




MorPheusz is Ron Boots, Eric and Harold v.d. Heijden & Frank Dorittke (FD.Project).

The eighties was a difficult time for serious electronic music but from hard times almost always comes something good. In the Dutch city of Eindhoven, the base of the Phillips company, some musicians started to make music in the style of the great inspirators from the seventies. Two of the most important people that have come from that period who are still around these days are Ron Boots and Eric van der Heijden. You could say, there are responsible for the "Eindhoven School" of electronic music (as opposed to the "Berlin School"). On several occasions, Ron and Eric have collaborated in and since that time under the name of "MORE".
On this album, two musical friends accompany them: Harold van der Heijden on drums and Frank Dorittke on electric guitar. Harold has a respected name in the world of EM-drumming, following the footsteps of the almost iconic Harald Grosskopf (with almost the same first name). Dorittke (a.k.a. FD Project) is a specialist in the combination between electronic music and electric guitarsolo’s and steps into the footsteps of no one less than Mike Oldfield. What would it sound if the four of them would teamed together and release an album? The result is MorPeuSz with "Days Of Delirium & Nocturnal NightMares".

The styles of the four blend excellently: from the sequencer-driven style but with a vision of his own from Ron, the melodically and romantic work by Eric, the thrusting percussion and drums by Harold and the wonderful solo’s by Frank. Everything is in it’s place and has a meaning. The album starts off almost as progressive rock in "Between The Barriers Of Reality", filled with great soloing on guitar and synths. Listen to the sequences and sounds in the background. Harold also plays a fine snaredrum on "Daylight In A Nocturnal ScareScape" in which you can hear Frank work on a nice guitareffect, just as Edgar Froese did in the best days with Tangerine Dream. And the sequences just get richer and richer. The guys can rock: they prove this best in "Prophecies Of A Pagan". Nothing Pagan folk to this: it is electronic rock that we know from the gloryyears of TD and Ashra. The influence of Oldfield can best be heard on "Sandman Journey Through Sanity". "Drowse At Dawn" starts with a fine sequencerline and moves into a softer, even a bit jazzy, track. The forceful "proggy" stuff returns in "Fearful Awakening".

With "Days Of Delirium & Nocturnal NightMares" MorPeuSz proves electronic music is not all about ambiences and atmospheres but that it can also rock!
