Limelight: Meet Brother Ape and their mega riffs from Sweden

70s prog worship meets mega riffs and plenty of improv with these Swedes…

Prog is by no means a formula-free musical genre, but the greatest bands always seem to defy easy categorisation. Stockholm’s Brother Ape may occasionally exhibit an unapologetic debt to the giants of 70s prog and the big riffing grandeur of Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple, but the amount of musical ground covered on their new album Karma indicates a much more adventurous mindset: those recognisable tropes arriving embellished with all manner of fascinating stylistic quirks and unexpected detours.
