The Witching Hour – The Bambir

bambirframeReady for a blast of rock flute? 

I think it’s fair to say there’s some strong Jethro Tull influence in this and having looked into The Bambir they’ve got an interesting backstory – the band have their origins back in 1978 with The Bambir being the second generation of the band Bambir.

They’re an Armenian prog band that make the most of their folk influences. The Witching Hour has a straightforward rock foundation with the flute woven in and out of the heavy guitar. This is exactly the sort of track I’ve grown up listening to, I’ve played it to our prog loving Dad.(Ellie: So are we all going on a family prog trip to Armenia now?)
