Nick Katona Kristoffer Gildenlöw shines on this release, it's a strong contender for becoming my favorite release by Kristoffer and the perfect follow up to The Rain. It's an album that will see a lot of spins on my turntable and my radio show for years to come.

Sven B. Schreiber (sbs) The surname "Gildenlöw" has been a guarantee for exquisite music for many years. However, it was the first name "Daniel" that made the headlines. "Pain Of Salvation" was one of my favorite prog metal bands. Frankly, I don't go anymore for the blues rock they recorded from 2010 on. So it's good news that Daniel's brother Kristoffer jumped in to carry on the family tradition of creating something great. His songs are neither prog nor metal, but who cares, if they give goosebumps to the listener.

about

Homebound is the third solo album of Swedish musician Kristoffer Gildenlöw.
Although known from bands such as Pain of Salvation, Neal Morse Band, Kayak and more, those who are familiar with his first two albums know not to expect progressive metal with technical playing and continuously changing time signatures. Instead you get dark, eerie, nostalgic and somewhat soothing music with symphonic elements and heartfelt guitar solos. Landing on the softer side of the post-progressive spectrum, Kristoffer Gildenlöw has been compared with bands and artists such as David Sylvian, The Deer Hunter, Blackfield, No Man, Roger Waters among others. From small, minimalistic songs and soundscapes to full symphonic rock with choirs, strings, brass, howling guitar solos and carefully chosen instrumentations, his music tells a story.
And that’s what he’s known for: telling stories and touching your heart and soul with dreamy, somewhat melancholic, tales of humanity and nature.

On Homebound, Kristoffer has also chosen to put a personal tribute of the song “Chelsea Hotel #2” by the great, departed Leonard Cohen.
“Leonard Cohen” has always been of great inspiration to me. Since his passing in 2017, I felt I needed to honour him in some way. ‘Chelsea Hotel #2’ somehow stuck with me throughout the years and I hope people will appreciate this tribute to the great master.” (- KG)
