5 stars KoMaRa is Slovakian experimental guitarist and composer David Kollar new trio project with an acoustic and electronic percussions magican Pat Mastelotto and Paolo Raineri on trumpet. It sounds very fresh and exciting. Without doubts this realease is one of the best from 2015. Only 6 ratings and one review so far on PA site is probably the only reason why I can not see this record in the top ten of 2015. Music brings to mind some King Crimson or Fripp works mixed with Nils Petter Molvaer soundscapes and experimental-post metal moments. There are also some similarities to Tony Levin's World Diary or even more some Stick Man pieces especially in bass lines with tint of Miles Davis trumpet excesses or, in some parts also with Trevor Dunn's Trio Convulsant prog-hardcore-jazz experiments. This was my associations after the first three hearings, however this stuff is darker and denser, somewhat industrial-like and full of heavy moments interrupted by more melancholic and gently pulsing fragments. My favourite track is "Afterbirth" with one minute of silence at the end. Some associations around band name: "komar" means "mosquito" in Polish. We can say as linguistic joke: "komara" for female mosquito but correct form of this noun in Polish is "komarzyca" :-) Back to topic - four and a half star rounded to five. Highly recommended!
