We are lucky in this beginning of this year 2005. After the release of the new albums of some major bands like Dark Tranquillity, Grave Digger or Kreator, now this is the turn of one of the most famous and original band of the Metal scene, Green Carnation. After two years the Norwegian combo will present us its new release, "The Quiet Offspring", their 4th one. If their precedent albums were really original and not really easy of access, this time the band maybe took a new road. I think that "The Quiet Offspring" could become the "open" album, the one that every metal heads on Earth could enjoy.

In our times dominated by Death, Black and Power metal bands, it's always refreshing to encounter sheer originality in a band hailing from Scandinavia. Green Carnation originates from Norway and has a solid lineup including legendary musician Tchort. But after all, Norway brought us the most original bands in the recent past with Winds, Pagan's Mind or Jorn; and Green Carnation belongs to that same category of artists albeit their music is more oriented Prog/Heavy than the aforementioned bands. The new Prog/Heavy prodigies are back with their highly anticipated album, "The Quiet Offspring".

Sure, there are a few fillers, but they're far from boring imho.

Aside from LoD,DoD this is my favourite GC album.
The sound reminds me of Freak Kitchen

I tend to find GC's output consistently very good without them ever achieving excellence... let's hope that they do indeed reform and make a masterpiece!
First gig was Manowar (loincloths 'n' all), Bristol Colston Hall in March 1983, on the 'Hail to England' tour. Tickets were £3.75, 300 in the audience, Mercyful Fate never showed, but my hearing still got seriously trashed..
