A new beginning for Tonbruket: Some of the tracks are extremely soft and gentle, romantic, acoustic, jazz-inspired, while others use prog rock as a springboard from which to make the short leap into heavy metal. The pieces the band plays can differ hugely from each other in shape, intensity and stylistic origin. The result of this is that the listener's attention tends to be drawn away from the specific and from the moment-to-moment, and towards the totality of what is happening.

A new beginning for Tonbruket Tonbruket's first three albums put down a strong marker... Over the course of their three albums, the Swedish band Tonbruket have comprehensively defined the part of the musical universe which they choose to inhabit: a world on the outer boundaries of unshockable prog rock, of uncharted avant-garde folk, and of the kind of jazz where the rule-book has been thrown away. Tonbruket have been able to put down a decisive marker of their identity because each of the members is such a strong individual musician. The band represents the meeting of four people who have already proved themselves in many different contexts, and who were pleased to bring all of the vast experience that they had gathered into this new situation. Bassist Dan Berglund had been an intrinsic part of the reinvention of jazz which took place...
