Grand General – Grand General (2013)

“This Norwegian fusion quintet features the same instrumental lineup as Mahavishnu Orchestra, so comparisons to John McLaughlin’s legendary ’70s band are probably inevitable. But on the basis of Grand General’s eponymous 2013 Rune Grammofon debut, such comparisons would merely scratch the surface. The bandmembers have the chops to match any fusioneers past or present, but they’re also fond of the relentless rock pummel, undergirding their pyrotechnics with a powerful rhythm section possessing deep reserves of energy.”

  1. Sizzling fusion with healthy doses of strings, electro keys and effects on the frets but the thing that shines is the drumming. Dude wails on the skins! This is some smoldering prog-o-licious jam rock from some very talented musicians.
