The third album from the Norwegian prog band D’accorD, sees the band go in a more direct and straight forward direction. Where their last album, “Helike” (2010) was a massive conceptual piece, this time the band has gone for shorter and more diverse tracks. The impulse’s from the 70’s progressive sound is still there, and the same goes for the complexity in the music. But this time, D’accorD has incorporated more rock’n’roll and a more hard edge to the songs, and the tracks are more variated.
“D’accorD III” was recorded at the fully analog Cowshed Studio in London, where The Beautiful South, Jamie Cullum, Boy George among others has recorded. D’accorD wanted a more authentic and real 70’s sound on this album, and the feeling of the recording is raw, real and live. All of the tracks was recorded on the first take. Analog mastering was done at Fluid Mastering in London (Deep Purple, Elvis, Jethro Tull and more).
With the album “D’accorD III”, the band has made a classic rock album filled with adventurous and progressive sounds.
