5 stars Dances of the Drastic Navels has a mixed style of industrial, progressive, space, and experimental that often reminded me of Pink Floyd, Fates Warning, King Crimson, and something of cosmic couriers. "The dance of the drastic navels" is a 23 minute gem that has all those elements, along with guest musicians on guitars, bass, and strings. Daal have a formula of moving fast through their music and in the beginning, it felt disassembled and somewhat unfocused. After more listens, I saw they intended a partially chaotic music, after all, the songs are written about the heavy topic of death, doomsday and sex with female robots!! Davide and Alfio play lots of different instruments and take advantage of the modern keyboard technology that will allow most anything to be done with an entire orchestra of instruments so realistic that it will fool anyone. The last song "Inside You" starring Tirill Mohn and his magical voice, is simply beautiful, using grand piano, Violin, haunting cymbals, gongs, keys: This song reminds me of something the White Willow (obviously) but also some reference the brand of Swedish Anekdoten ....What a nice song!!!! And a perfect ending to a somewhat frightening concept of things like Witches and dark rites, Daal present things in a very artistic way, as each song stands like a portrait. The music here does not terrify you, but it seems to just be sad that things are the way they are, and wonders how they got like this. I really liked this release and look forward to many more from Daal.
