Carptree is a Swedish band formed by an excellent vocalist named Niclas Flinck and multi-instrumentalist Carl Westholm. The vocals, the magnificent keyboards and the rhythm section are fabulous, taking the listener to a beautiful world of epic symphonic progressive rock. However, this is one of those bands that injects heavy metal in most of its songs. By the time I got through with the album, I had had enough of heavy metal. This album is a prime candidate for a prog remix.
Flinck and Westholm are joined by the No Future Orchestra, a talented group of musicians who provide support to Carptree.
Swedish progressive rock band Carptree will be releasing a new album titled “Emerger” on April 7th, 2017. In anticipation of this new recording, Carptree will reveal a new video titled “Fleeting Deep” in February.
Carptree is a progressive symphonic rock duo that includes producer and composer Carl Westholm on keyboards and composer and lyricist Nicklas Flinck on vocals. Even though Carptree is a duo, they are usually accompanied by the No Future Orchestra (NFO). The NFO includes musicians from other Swedish acts.
Carptree started working on the album in 2014. Jesper Skarin plays drums and percussion. Aside from the mellotrons that are generated from a sampler software, all instruments and amplifiers on this album are analog as well as the mix and mastering.
The CD will feature 8 songs, including a remixed version of “Dwindle Into Greatness” as a bonus track. The vinyl version will include the other 7 tracks and will be released about one month after the CD on the FOSFOR Creation label.
