GLOBUS Epicon Imperative Records(2007)

The blurb claims this is the biggest rock band ever and this must be true if you add the massed choirs and backing musicians involved on this album. This whole concept was formed by Yoav Goran, whose track record is in creating epic cinema soundtracks. The other key members include vocalist Dann Pursey who sings on six of the fourteen tracks on here, Feeder drummer Mark Richardson and keyboardist Nick Naysmith of the Manic Street Preachers.

The whole album is like one big, glorious film soundtrack and it covers many musical genres from Eastern influences through to dance loops and some good old hard rock. It all holds well together despite all the musical styles thrown into the mix with highlights including the single ‘Orchard Of Mines’, the pomp of ‘Mighty Rivers Run’ and ‘La Coronacion’.

If you remember back to when Enigma and Adeumus were popular back in the 90’s plus add in Trans Global Underground then Globus are a natural progression of this successfully coupling epic choirs and backing into many musical genres and keeping the listener rapt at all times.
