Norwegian artist Marius Holth has enlisted first-rate, top-notch support to bring his theatrical, high-concept material to life. They’re songs with lyrics (voiced mainly by Holth himself) that are highly descriptive of events that unfold in misty, mysterious, magical settings. “Gypsy Priest” is remarkable due to the manic wailing/yelling of solo vocalists, first a female then a male. Holth’s own singing skills improve over the course of subsequent songs, such as the light, sweet and melodic “Lady on Foggy Lake,” where his intonations add a Hobbit-like aura, and “Wild Poem” where Holth injects every decibel of dynamism, commitment and vitality he can muster. This artist is unusual, operatic, and not for everyone.
