4 stars Nebelnest's debut is a King Crimson dream come true. Even the song titles seem to have run away from King Crimson albums.

Nebelnest is a French modern prog bands that takes the dense darkness of Magma and adds towering Crimsonite riffs and dissonant harmonisation. They operate in the RIO section of PA but next to the notable avant-garde elements, they sure rock as wild and gripping as Crimson does.

The band keeps things entirely instrumental, laying down a heavy rhythm section with drilling bass guitar and the type of jazz-rock influenced drumming that brings back the energy and dynamism of Bill Bruford. Organs, mellotrons and guitars provide for the melodic leads, often using dissonance and weird tonalities. Not one track is less then stellar. The band is sure inspired on each of these improvisations, going fluently from uncanny spacey atmospheres to furious intensity and everything inbetween.

Kudos to Sinkadotentree for recommending this band to me and particularly for introducing me to this album. A golden tip! Highly recommended for fans of '74 King Crimson, early Anekdoten, Guapo and Magma's instrumental side.
