A Beginner’s Guide To: Gazpacho

jl-sr-gazpacho-molok-c3a6496-21Earlier this month we posted the somewhat controversial ‘A Beginner’s Guide to Dream Theater’, which proved to be quite popular. A lot of you expressed interest for us to make more flowcharts regarding other progressive rock artists,so that anyone can ease into any expansive discography if they don’t know where to begin.

So here’s the latest installment for a band who deserve more recognition in the modern progressive world – ‘A Beginner’s Guide To: Gazpacho’.

Gazpacho are a Norwegian-based progressive art rock band that signed to Kscope in 2010. Prior to that they released their albums independent of any record label and instead built their publicity online – which is probably why they’re not ‘household’ prog names. However, the consistently high quality of music they put out is staggering, and it’s criminal how underrated they are in the field of progressive music.

With their albums revolving around grand concepts or conglomerations of smaller ideas, every LP Gazpacho has put out is unique, both thematically and instrumentally. From the inspirational tales of french air couriers covered in Tick Tock to the harrowing concept of being possessed by the devil in Demon, Gazpacho‘s music acts as a vessel for grander meanings than at face value, but whose sound is no less charming on its own.

This band have put out some of my favourite albums of all time, and I have no doubts that anything they release in future will continue to impress. Gazpacho is a band that any modern prog lover would be a fool to miss out on.

For you rare Gazpacho fans, do tell if there’s anything about this flowchart that you feel is a glaring error, and I’ll be happy to make revisions. I hope this has been very informative for the rest of you prog fans!
