Pixie Ninja – Ultrasound (Blue LP)
This is an Apollon Records release.
This is the re-release of this popular 2017 debut album from Norwegian avant-garde proggers Pixie Ninja - now with blue artwork. This is a Limited Edition of just 250 copies on blue vinyl.
Ultrasound is the result of two individuals with a huge appetite for Scandinavian progressive music. Jostein Haugen and Marius Leirånes began to work on the album in late May 2015. One year later, they began the recording. During the process the band reached out to Mattias Olsson (Necromonkey, ex-Änglagård) and he joined mainly as their producer. He was also in charge of drums, overdubs, and mixing. Johan Hals Jørgensen (organist) was later recruited as the band’s new keyboard maestro. Jostein Haugen and Marius Leirånes go way back and have played together in various projects since early 2008. The album was mastered in the U.S by Christopher Cline.
Ultrasound is a fully instrumental album, consisting of soaring leads and cinematic string sections. The album is an emotionally powerful set of atmospheric electronica and progressive rock that blends the past, the present, and the future.
Jostein Haugen and Marius Leirånes play the guitars/bass and keyboard sections alongside glockenspiels and various other instruments. Mattias Olsson provides uplifting and experimental drum beats throughout the album, alongside the Mellotron M400 (and more). It also features Ketil Vestrum Einarsen (Weserbergeland, White Willow, Wobbler, Motorpsycho) adding a layer of majestic flute on one of the tracks.
