Review by Windhawk
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars German composer and instrumentalist Hans Jorg Schmitz has been plying his trade for three decades or thereabouts now, being an active and contributing member in a variety of bands all the way back to 1981. KING OF AGOGIK is his solo project, basically a one-man band with a few permanent guest musicians and a few more side participants. "The Rhythmic Drawing Room" is his third such solo effort.

King Of Agogic has created a compelling and interesting double set of CDs with "The Rhythmic Drawing Room". With instrumental symphonic art rock incorporating strong tendencies towards Neo-Prog and occasional metal-oriented flurries, we're treated to just over two hours of enticing and intriguing progressive rock with this one. Not faultless or flawless, but a charming acquaintance that should please many with a taste for projects of this kind. And in particular if you have a general interest in high-quality drumming, which is a central and natural component throughout.
