The Windmill

Hi Erik, I’m glad to have you again on Grande Rock. “Tribus”, is an exceptional prog rock album! It has made it to the GR list with the Best Albums of 2018 again!
 
E: Oh, wow thank you very much!
 
 
Well, why did you take you 5 years to release a new album? What happened in the meantime?
 

The Windmill - Tribus

I had been looking forward to The Windmill’s new album for some time now, but the years were passing by and nothing was happening. They finally released “Tribus” 5 years after the exceptional “The Continuation”, and they proved once more that it’s better to “speak” when you have something to say than do it with no reason.
