Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JazzRock/Fusion Teams
4 stars Trioscapes is one of the hottest new fusion groups that I've heard recently. Despite consisting of only a drummer, a flute/saxophone player and a bassist, this band a completely full fusion sound. They have the punk aggression of Paranoise, the wild experimentalism of Nick Didkovsky's Doctor Nerve, and the technical chops of some of fusions greatest stars.

The majority of the songs are made up of wild rhythm tracks laid down by the drummer, Matt Lynch and bassist Dan Briggs, with Walter Fancourt soloing overhead. Occasionally, there are overdubs, and at times Briggs solos on the higher notes on his bass, sounding almost like an electric guitar.

The result is both dangerous and exciting, and a sure fire member of my summer cruising rotation.

Oh, and the final track on the album appears to be an homage to the 1980's lineup of King Crimson. With the weaving of bass and sax, and sustained high bass notes imitating Fripp's soaring guitar, it's another treat.

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Metal and Heavy Prog Teams
4 stars Heavy, heavy, heavy fusion...

I was not surprised when this band was proposed for an addition to progressive metal; everything else is there, apart from the guitars! The trio of Briggs, Lynch and Fancourt deliver lessons on heavy progressive fusion based on a solid rhythm section and a talented saxophonist.

Here you can find anything from dynamic "blasts" of saxophone over an ever-changing, in tempos and moods, rhythm section (opening track), to free jazz patterns (Wazzlejazzlebof), and from mysterious atmospheres and oriental sounds (title track) to dark experimental passages a la King Crimson (Gemini's Descent). The band also take on Mahavishnu's ''Celestial Terrestrial Commuters'' and take it to another level, adding further improvisation.

The spotless, clear production adds extra points to the end result. There is a nice balance between straightforward improvisation (Fancourt on the leading role with the other two usually supporting) and more mellow and experimental passages, and this mixture makes the album more ''listenable'' and enjoyable, especially to those that are not fully trained in the arts of fusion (including myself). Worth of mention is the bass playing approach, which changes freely from ''slapping'' to heavy distortion, adding to this more ''metallic'' feeling. The influences from Rush (!) and King Crimson are those that do the trick for me, as does the use of some ''spacey'' themes here and there.

This is a great piece of musicianship and certainly among the highlights of the year; it should definitely appeal to fusion fans but also to prog metal/metal fusion (Panzerballet anyone?) followers.

3 stars Yes, on Separate Realities one can indeed hear quite a bit of heavy fusion and a whole lot of the "influence" by Mahavishnu Orchestra and King Crimson of a certain era. Apart from these, I didn't hear much of anything else that would have made my ears prick up. I did notice lengthy passages t ... (read more)
