The Night Flight Orchestra
« on: July 19, 2017, 04:30:51 PM »
My Spotify playlist suggested me this bands latest, Amber Galactic, and I've been recommending it to many.

Such fun, excellent, joyful, 80s/70s cheesy rock. Superb catchy songs. Great playing and perfect vocals. Like prime Purple/Flashdance soundtrack/AOR... I really don't know the references well enough but it's pretty much a perfect match for my tastes at the mo.

Not sure about Flashdance  :lol  but they are right up there with the very best retro rock bands around. IMHO their debut is still their best so if you like Amber Galactic then check that out too.   I believe I submitted them in my very first DTF roulette so they have copped the odd mention (both there and in the hard rock thread) but good to see them get their own thread  :tup

Nuclear Blast has some great retro bands signed (and it makes some people mad for some reason). Check out Blues Pills as well--their vocalist Ellin Larsson is awesome!

What I like about Night Flight Orchestra besides the music and everything is that the members are from death metal bands like Soilwork. They make some great music and I'm glad to see them mentioned

That's great to hear. I've been restraining myself both from binging too hard on Amber Galactic and thinning my attention by going straight through the back catalogue so I'm looking forward to hearing more.  :tup

I'll check Blues Pills out. Thanks!

I bought the last Soilwork album (on the back of TNFO) and it nearly worked for me. But not quite.

The lyrics on Amber Galactic really amuse me too. Genuinely make me laugh in places. And the rest of the time they really fit the music and scan perfectly.

Can't wait to get out on my work journey and pump it up again.

Yeah, they are ace. In fact, I was thinking about starting a thread about them since I couldn't find it. I am not even that much of a fan of 80's music, but this band just creates a lot of catchy tunes with some great musicianship.

Amber Galactic has been one of the most refreshing releases this year.  I just the other day listened to Skyline Whispers.  Good stuff, and I'll be spinning Internal Affairs soon.

Definitely one of the best albums of the year so far.

And considering the other band that the founders are involved with makes the quality of the material even more impressive.

Frontiers records should study this album and take note.

Amber Galactic is probably my favorite album of the year so far, easily the best new discovery I've made recently :metal For those interested or thinking of checking it out, I reviewed it: http://www.musicalypse.net/2017-the-night-flight-orchestra-amber-galactic/

I really need to check these guys out and get some of their albums  I'm a huge fan of Soilwork and Arch Enemy, and the fact that they can put together a band and write some old-school classic/80's rock tunes is awesome.  Plus, Speed's clean vocals are amazing - I love the video they put out this year that looks like an old video from the 80's, complete with VHS tracking lines.

Huge fan of these guys! I discovered them right after they released their second album "Skyline Whispers". My favorite album of theirs is their first one "Internal Affairs", their latest album is awesome and it's growing on me.

The more i listen to Amber Galactic, the more it feel's like my favorite album of the year so far!

It's a shame that they are probably destined to stay as a niche band forever. I would love to see them break big time! I wouldn't even mourn the loss of Soilwork for long, if Björn decided to focus 100% of his time into The Night Flight Orchestra.

I know Toto doesn't have opening bands anymore, but wouldn't it be cool to see The Night Flight Orchestra open for them?

When Swedish Death Metal band members channel their inner ABBA.

Not bad. Not my style of music but kudos for getting that sound down.

Haven't listened to the latest album yet, but the first two are incredibly fun. I didn't know these guys were from death metal bands, that's awesome

Amber Galactic is definitely one of the best albums this year. It's solid from start to end, even the "worst" songs are good.

Me either. Skyline Whispers lost me, but this one I’ve been enjoying a lot. Amber Galactic and the new Threshold are probably my favorites this year.

Soilwork just entered the studio to start recording a new album - projected late 2018 release.  Amber Galactic is a fun record, though only a few songs have really clicked with me so far.

I read somewhere that they're already working on a new album. I cannot wait for both releases!

Quote
Swedish classic/progressive rock supergroup The Night Flight Orchestra have just wrapped up shooting the official music video for the first single off their album. A short teaser can be seen below.

Commented the band: "Recording this video was like combining different dimensions in a space cocktail. Numerous times during the video shoot, band members had to call the tax authorities, to confirm their names in the register, to make sure they had not lost all contact with reality. The result is surely mesmerizing and will take you on a journey that will be hard to digest.
Enjoy!"

Teaser video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIvMdfndJnM

That high note that Speed hits is amazing.   :metal    I listened to Amber Galactic yesterday actually, and the entire disc really started clicking more than it had been.

As expected.  Pretty much sounds like something off the last one.  I hope they haven't rushed this one out to get get some new material out there.

It has some similarities sound wise but I think this one is a bit more complex than anything they did in the last album. I like the direction they seem to be taking
