A mighty sound front even sets out from tranquil Denmark to conquer the great wide world by virtue of its force. This miracle of nature is epic, wildly rampant, tricky, brute, but every now and then also touchingly tender. "Nous" is the name of this elemental force, thrown into life by the Aarhus quartet Lis Er Stille. It is the fourth album of this exceptional formation. Each of them has its own character, without ever questioning the identity of this collective. As with its predecessors, this masterpiece overwhelms from the very first moment. On the spot the listener is in the center of the hurricane. Those who don't like to be caught by this maelstrom may turn back to lukewarm postrock or neoprog epigones - if it's too strong for you, you're too weak. Lis-Er-Stille-Sound is a daring adventure, a wild vortex, reminiscent of Oceansize and Muse, but also of the early Van Der Graaf Generator and middle Pink Floyd and in the - few - fragile phases even of the late Talk Talk. Martin Byrialsen, singer, keyboarder and lyricist of the Vierer, has created 45 minutes of melodies with irresistible pull, dominant, mystical, wonderful.
