3 stars Runaway Totem continues their journey with this, their fourth album.

Although listed as a zeuhl band, the band discarded most of these clothes on their previous album Andromeda. They loose even more zeuhl associations on Tep Zeri.

What we get here is a bit of what we get on albums with bands like Univers Zero and Present. The stuff on Tep Zeri is in the same mould as on Andromeda. But just a lot more chamber orchestra like. That means a couple of dark distorted Rock Progressivo Italiano songs too in the beginning. But most of this album is dark avant-garde and RIO.

The quality is very good on most of the album. But most of the album feels like there is something unleashed which is not coming through. I don't feel the full potential of the material here was fully unleashed. But this is still a good album where the Rock Progressivo Italiano stuff really shines through here. It is also a free download from their homepage and well worth the megabytes.
