For nearly twenty years, Gazpacho have reigned as the kings of atmospheric and affective art rock. Their latest observation, Fireworker, is no exception. Conceptually, the album follows the bands tradition of blending grand philosophical quandaries, stimulating literary leanings, and haunting personal turmoil. In a way, it acts as the culmination of the themes and techniques that have decorated earlier collections, combining the fatalistic isolation of Night and Missa Atropos; the ill-fated narrative drama of Tick Tock and Soyuz; and the hefty theological/scientific contemplations of Demon and Molok. Beyond that, its central premise (that humanity has always been controlled by an infallible and omniscient creature determined to propagate at any cost) means that Fireworker comes across like the overarching umbrella under which all of its predecessors occur. Keyboardist Thomas Andersen elucidates: "Theres an instinctual part of you that lives inside your mind, separate from your consciousness. I call it the Fireworker or the Lizard or the Space Cowboy. Its an eternal and unbroken lifeforce thats survived every generation, with a new version in each of us"
