PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Very good and promising new instrumental Russian Band.They mis Crimso-influenced math-rock with folk and even tribal tunes,add some spacy and improvised spots,but never lose the sense of melody...some tracks even can be regarded as catchy!!! Perfect musicianship, recognizable style, great quality of the whole record - they know how to please a Progger! Nevertheless, they're also aware of ways of SHOCKING a Progger - you can find here dozens of bits when your mouth would be widely opened from in surprise, believe me. Highly recommended! DISEN GAGE promise to release their third one later this year ("Libertage" was mostly an avant experiment made on 90% from free improvisations of the band).When you're asking what will be the greatest discovery for Porg in 2007, I'll take a risk to propose RUSSIAN PROG , varied and interesting, on this role. Enjoy!!!

4 stars Very Disengaged ...

Wow! This is the debut of a very interesting russian band - excellent and very professional with great interaction between the musicians. Not to ignore - their music is often refering to KING CRIMSON and remembers me at 'Discipline' a lot. No keyboards and no vocals (excepting some spoken words). The twin guitar work is dominating the 10 short songs - sometimes similar to Fripp/Belew. They combine this also in a special way with other styles - Psychedelic - JazzRock/Fusion - jamming and a unique russian flavour.

The opener Solaris is convincing with a funky fusion bass - beginning with a psychedelic intro and then gliding into a groovy rocking part. Komar contains excellent drum work and Augenapfel is a very dynamic JazzRock track. Kategeriin first of all sounds like a country rock song and consists of many freaky effects - fabulous! Arabia is a tremendous ride - very much fusion again. Latino and Waltz are exactly what the song name promises. And Jewboilove is another very freaky song with saxophon accompaniment.

'The Screw-Loose Entertainment' is a fresh and ambitous work - very interesting to hear. Highly recommended to CRIMSON progheads and also to Jazz Rock/Fusion fans.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Neo Prog Team
3 stars Russian outfit DISEN GAGE was formed in Moscow in 1999 by students Konstantin Mochalov, Yuri Alaverdyan, and Nikolai Syrtsev.Soon drummer Eugeny Kudryashov joined them and the band gained some decent popularity playing at college festivals and recording an amount of self-produced cassettes.During this period the three main members continued their studies as researchers on Bio-Organic Chemistry and the band was set on ice.Despite the difficulties they released their debut ''The Screw-Loose Entertainment'' in 2004 on RAIG,after which oroginal guitarist Yuri Alaverdyan left to continue his academic career in Sweden.

STYLE: While the band states as being an Experimental Prog Rock act,I definitely deny with this term.The reason is that after so many listenings of bands being heavily influenced by the mid-70's Crimson-esque style of prog,the term ''experimental'' just fades away.This is guitar-driven Prog Rock strongly rooted in Jazz-Fusion with touches of Ethnic Music.Almost totally instrumental (except some scarce spoken words), ''The Screw-Loose Entertainment'' runs at 40 minutes offering fusion-esque musicianship with lots of breaks,cold atmospheres but also a decent amount of melody.Bass work can range from solid rhytmic patterns to almost funky grooves,while the guitar work with a Fripp-ian influence varies from heavy parts to melodic passages.Notice some interesting guitar distortions and effects,which make the album sounding a bit experimental.Drum work is also quite solid,without being anything excepttional and follows consistently the rest of the musicians.

INFLUENCES/SOUNDS LIKE: With a guitarist playing his instrument sitting on a chair during the lives,can you imagine something else than ROBERT FRIPP's KING CRIMSON as an influence?Similar bands are also BI KYO RYAN,DIFICIL EQUILIBRIO,TRYO and maybe CABEZAS DE CERA.

PLUS: Excellent bass work,it really stands out!The use of some effects,light keys and guitar distortions prevents the album to sound mechanical.Good thing is the decent amount of melodies here and there.Musicianship is tight and really captivating.Nice alternation between slow- and fast tempos.Production is above average.

MINUS: Another band with a somewhat unpersonal style,the guitar work can only bring ROBERT FRIPP in mind.The tracks sound rather similar due to the limited instrumentation and the specific style of guitar playing.

WILL APPEAL TO:...anyone after guitar-based Prog Rock,KING CRIMSON-influenced music and a nice entry for someone who hasn't been in touch with a similar style of progressive music.

CONCLUSION: The same story again as in lot of cases.A band with obvious talent but without daring a step forward.A couple of tracks with added saxes are a good guide for a richer sound and the future.Good album overall,but not something ground-breaking.3 stars.

4 stars Surprising, intriguing and very difficult to classify music. A lot of styles, ranging from Samla Mammas Manna -like ("Augenapfel", "Kategeriin"), through Ozric Tentacles-que ("Arabia", "Sortie") and Satellite -like ("Chinagroove") to almost King Crimsonic ("Solaris", "Witchtanz") - these blunderi ...

3 stars Vow. A forty minutes long album now available as a free download and a good one too. This Russian bands looks like some mad professors from a university in Moscow. Their biography confirms my "worst" fears too. Their music is instrumental eclectic prog with one foot firmly rooted in fusion-roc ... (read more)

5 stars Heavy Music and King Crimson inspired! This is a relatively new band from Russia. They started in 1999 at the Moscow Physics, but their first album (this one) was released in 2004 by RAIM (Russian Association of Independent Genres). It is avant, psychedelic, jazzy, folky, and above all heavy p ... (read more)
