Captain Ahab - The End of Irony (CD)

Reissue. Do you love power metal even though it is just for thirtysomething LARPers? Well, good for you! Shout it to the sky! Do you like shaking your ass to some electro-clash even though your neighbor scoffs because you forgot it's called nu-rave now? Do you want to cuddle in the morning sunlight to some '70s soft rock, but your sweetie-pie thinks you're making fun of him/her? Captain Ahab knows how you feel. They love all these criminalized sounds and many more, and they combine them in a way that irony would never permit. There is serious commitment going on here. Commitment to making epic songs that defy expectation, trends, and any sort of cool-factor. But we're not talking about some lazy mash-up album, here. They have composed these songs from scratch. The album creates a meticulous and sweeping cosmology that would satisfy even the headiest of '70s prog heshers. Captain Ahab is fucking committed to freeing your soul! No short cuts on this album. Is that a live guitar player? Yeah, duh! Every band has one of those. So, what do you think of this live orchestra then? How about this master sitar player flew out from India to play in a room next to a guy with a modular synthesizer the size of the WOPR. These songs are the real deal, passionate and unafraid. They're the result of Captain Ahab's dedication to their audience. If you are ready to be set free, then your lucky day has come. All you need to do is listen!
