Bram Stoker Cold Reading
Formed in 1969 and popular around the club circuit in London, Bram Stoker released their first album, Heavy Rock Spectacular, back in 1972, when they seemed set to make an impact on the prog scene. However, like so many bands their career was short lived. But having recently reformed, they’re determined to carry on from where they left off and Cold Reading does just that! They make use of classical pieces within their lengthy instrumental passages and two tracks from their debut album, Fingal’s Cave and Fast Decay, have been rerecorded to make use of today’s sound quality. This is a very enjoyable album, with well constructed songs and great guitar finesse provided by Tony Lowe, who also produced the album. The tracks are progressive in length too but never lose their way – just check out Light At The End Of The Tunnel. By no means guitar heavy, this may have been an exceptionally long time in coming but it’s very worthwhile none-the-less.
