5 stars Heavy Music and King Crimson inspired!

This is a relatively new band from Russia. They started in 1999 at the Moscow Physics, but their first album (this one) was released in 2004 by RAIM (Russian Association of Independent Genres). It is avant, psychedelic, jazzy, folky, and above all heavy prog that is King Crimson inspired - which is always a plus in my book.

The album is instrumental (except for a few sections where someone says something in Russian). The music is enticing and is always full of surprises no matter how many times you listen to it. There is no filler on this album at all. Each track is different yet it keeps a good flow to it. It is one of those albums that makes you want to sit down and just feel the music for the whole hour (or however long this album is). It is surprising that all this is created with 2 guitars, a bass guitar, and drums. No keyboards in sight. Truly exceptional musicianship.

All in all this experimental music is exceptional. It is worth getting, especially if you are a fan of heavy prog or the heavier King Crimson stuff. Don't get the idea that this band is just copying King Crimson style. The songs are unique and yet the main influence is obvious and wonderful to listen to. I think I prefer this to the King Crimson albums I have. 5/5 stars.

Oh and you can download this album (it's legal and free!) from the band's website!
