Title - The Fifth Season
Artist - Resistor

For those unaware, Resistor is a Progressive Rock band whose music is written and recorded using electric and acoustic guitars, voice, bass, drums, violin, flute, occasionally keyboards, and once a kazoo!

Much of the music is instrumental, however, storytelling plays a big part in their persona, and several of their albums contain epic length story/songs.

The New England quartet - Steve Unruh, Fran Turner, Barry Farrands and Rob Winslow - returns with an elevated version of their hard-driving prog rock here on The 5th Season.

Following the acclaimed concept album Underground, Resistor took an organic approach for the new recording; they wrote everything together, in the same room.

For over a year, they recorded jam sessions and scoured the tapes for inspired ideas.

They arranged the best bits into new song frameworks, then refined and rehearsed together until everything felt just right.

Only then did the album recording sessions take place. The result is a collection of fully matured compositions played by a rehearsed band.

1. Winter (13:03)
2. Saint Iris (5:29)
3. Seraphim (4:55)
4. Cricket Season (1:48)
5. Till Spirits Rise (4:54)
6. Aurora (8:27)
7. Falling Snow (6:19)

On an album that draws inspiration from the lasting influence others can spark, even after they are gone, their brand new musical opus opens on the euphorically anthemic, clenched-fists raised Winter and then brings us the free flowingly melodic Saint Iris.

Next up is the more guitar focused Seraphim which is in turn backed by the ornate instrumental beauty of Cricket Season, the mid-tempo, yet at all times building prog rock of Till Spirts Rise, with the album rounding out on the equally rambunctious and dedicated, early Rush-esque guitar jam of Aurora, closing on the ethereal prog flow of Falling Snow.
