about

Tracks 1-7 from "Harlequin Mass" 1978
Tracks 8-11 "Stubborn Puppet" 1982

This single albun from North-American (Portland, Oregon)
band HARLEQUIM MASS, is a good surprise, mainly if take in consideration that is a relatively unknown work.
The sound reminds in some aspects the German band NOVALIS
(in special "Novalis" & "Bradung" albuns) and also takes a bit of GENESIS, YES.
You can perceive some crossover prog influences in the "vein"
of the Britsh band BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST and a very small
"pinch' of the sound of the Norwegian band RUPHUS in their two
first albuns ("New Born Day" and "Ranshart") wich adds some Heavy-Prog aspects in the musical landscapes.
We recommend the track 2 "Love & Death", track 6 "A New Song" ,
track 7 "Sky Caller" and track 9 "Meantime".
