The Sullen Fortress by Godbless Thee, Mooseheart published on 2012/11/21 00:40:55 +0000 The Prison, Pt. I, a concept album, is the first part in a planned double record release. Together, the two parts of the album (part one representing alienation and part two representing coming-of-age) tells the story of a boy's childhood, following him from birth until the end of his youth. Part one, solely focusing on the story leading up to teenage years, is comprised of four total compositions, each separated into movements that tell different parts of the story. Musically, the album draws influence from a wide range of sources, ranging from Heavy Metal acts such as Opeth to progressive rock groups such as Pink Floyd to post rock groups like Sigur Ros and acoustic songwriters such as Cat Stevens, and several others. Simply put, the album freely cycles throughout several styles while still aiming for a certain cohesion throughout.
