Ignis Fatuus is the debut album from Norwegian band White Willow, part of the Scandinavian revival of Symphonic prog rock in the 90's. This is an interesting album were the songs seem to be split, several are Symphonic prog (Snow Fall, Cryptomenysis, etc) and others are Prog folk (The Withering Of The Boughs, Lines In An Autumnal Evening, etc), an approach which works well here and sets out their style for the next few years with confidence. WHITE WILLOW's debut album is a great blend of dark, Scandinavian Folk music and that classic seventies Prog sound. These are songs that various members of the band had recorded over a two year period. There are so many instruments that are used on this record, it's incredible ! There is mellotron used on at least 8 of the 12 tracks, although it is very subtle.

White Willow ‎– Ignis Fatuus. 이블: Termo Records ‎– TERMOCD012. Ignis Fatuus was originally released by The Laser's Edge in 1995. All songs recorded between 1993 and 1995 at Frydenlund, except track 1-12 "John Dee's Lament", track 1-10 "Cryptomenysis" and track 1-5 "The Withering of the Boughs", recorded at Chateau Neuf. Bonus tracks have been left unprocessed, and have simply been transferred direct to disc from the source tapes.

White Willow is a Norwegian art rock band, mixing elements of orchestral pop, 1970s progressive rock, jazz-rock and even electronic elements.

Just like every debut album, this 1995 release from Norwegian post-progressive outfit White Willow has some fine moments, but also stumbles at times. Fortunately, as the group matured, their sound gelled, and the sophistication of the compositions increased (especially with the addition of keyboardist Lars Fredrik Frøislie). I generally liked this debut though, and Ignis Fatuus is important because the band was up and running. Then again, I am a huge fan of the group and absolutely have to get everything they released.

Notes

All songs recorded at Fryndenlund Studio, except track 12 recorded at Chateau Neuf.

Track 13: Bonus track, description follows;
(Det Omvendte Baeger(The Inverted Chalice) was a song we recorded during the Ignis Fatuus sessions, but since the album already was a bit lengthy side we decided to leave it off. It has remained in its semi-finished condition since then. The lyrics are by the Norwegian Romanitic poet J.S. Welhaven. This was a bit of a tribute to Norwegian 70's prog. Høst in particular.
