3 stars KEOR is the name of the project by multi-instrumentalist Victor Miranda-Martin from Montpellier. KEOR's music combines heavy guitar sounds with moods, crazy progressive rock compositions. His previous album reminded me of the progressive research of the great Devin Townsend and had undeniable positive feedback. This tea room has been his outlet, his muse, his scourge, he says. "!!! "Intro just intro for aperitif time in fact, "Blossom" on a crazy track, djent, Townsend, Zappa if it was still present, syncopated metallic rhythm, energy, power, melodic break which surprises with a beautiful melody and it always leaves with the shouting voice, one in the background, the drums clear, aggressive. "A - Warlike" on an even heavier and more frightening rhythm, Tool, Teramaze, Townsend, electric heavy la Rammstein for the devastating riff; station wagon with Indian bansuri flute and an infra-bass of a sudden which denotes even more, some sea sounds for satisfaction and a sigh, off sounds that end up disturbing, well it's really war. "Took a Nap" hold his cardiac arrest sound then air fresh air, mysterious too, world creation tune, phrased voice, tune of 'when do you wake up from your nap?', The metronomic drums lead the rhythm and I note the crazy side in all its acceptance. "Underworld" on a jerky bass, we find the basic djent sound, nervous, aggressive; There is Red Hot in it, Suicidal Tendencies, Living Color, the bass does its little quirky limit show, the finale with this serious percussion that makes you react while sound effects come and go. "Learning God" avant-garde, minimalist air, a banjo comes to be present, the plaintive voice, the percussion invite itself; it looks like a tote, a jumble, it calms down even more almost unbelievably; halfway through it starts with an imbroglio, we find there a drums creating the rhythm and voices on film music, street noises, laments, it suddenly reminds me of one of the Beatles songs; the final to the basic riff sets out again on the cataclysmic meanders. "Marta / I Am Keor" for the end, presentation of Marta and Keor, a mantra then a last tune which sends me back to certain sounds of Anyone, which moves dangerously away from the progressive banks as we have seen them from a good moment.

Keor released a powerful, expansive, diverse, personal album. Of the anachronistic, unstructured and destructuring progression that has a meaning, half orchestral, vocal, explosive, recorded in a cave inside the misty mountains surely too. Keor or the extreme at the start of the year.
