Incandescent Sky biography
John MacNeill (keyboards), guitarist Don Sullivan and Mehool Patel (bass) founded INCANDESCENT SKY at the beginning of this century. The band's discography initiates with the album 'Radiate' in 2001, consisting of relaxed cosmic/ambient soundscapes overall. Some time later drummer John Orsi completed the line-up in order to offer a more rocking component. The new quartet released 'Glorious Stereo' in 2003 featuring some King Crimson and Porcupine Tree references.

The follower album 'Paths And Angels' (2006) shows second bass player Mike Marando contributing for the first time who should substitute Patel further on. 2010 saw their current album 'Four Faradays In A Cage', an ambitious effort where they refine their unique style with the focus on the synth guitar and a virtuoso drum playing. While their music is completely improvised INCANDESCENT SKY are a crew hard to pigeonhole stylistically. They play a mix of fusion, space and ambient elements with a rather eclectic approach, sometimes similar to 16 Deadly Improvs, Quarkspace.

— First review of this album —
3 stars In mid-00's Incandescent Sky welcome another member, this time it was bassist Mike Marando.This fact alone was enough for Mehool Patel to concentrate in his work on Chapman stick and loops.Now as a quintet, the group entered The Carpet Box Studios in East Providence to record its third indepedent release ''Paths and Angles'', released in 2005.

Release by release, the sound of Incandescent Sky becomes even more conveincing: richer, more powerful and really spacecy.Their all instrumental offerings become a nice amalgam of Space Progressive Rock with touches of Electronic Music, very much in the vein of QUANTUM FANTAY.The influences by PORCUPINE TREE, OZRIC TENTACLES and RUSH are apparent, not giving the group a much needed identity, but the music is definitely rewarding despite a couple of dissapointing tracks.Intense sonic soundscapes with a powerful rockin' content, based on either furious or more psychedelic grooves, led by the energy of Don Sullivan's guitars, the dominant rhythm section of Marando and Orsi and the good collaboration between Patel's sound effects and John MacNeill's floating synthesizers, which at moments have a Neo Prog feel.The style is always very rich with a full band collaboration.Guitar moves range from psychedelic grooves to dynamic riffs, the keyboards alternate between lighter background textures to orchestral, spacey movements and the constant use of piano adds an ever romantic flavor.A couple of more complex ideas even recall the demanding sound of KING CRIMSON with Sullivan delivering his FRIPP-ian more experimental guitar forms.

Intense Psych/Space/Progressive Rock with plenty of nice ideas.Time seems to be a friend for this US act, which becomes more mature with its release.Recommended.

3 stars US band INCANDESCENT SKY describes itself as an "inventive improvisational instrumental ensemble". It became an active recording outfit back in 2001. "Four Faradays in a Cage" is its fourth production, and was released in June of 2010.

"Four Faradays in a Cage" is a production I'd describe as a gem for the chosen few. Instrumental, improvisational music that focuses on specific moods and constellations to a greater degree than alterations and variations, elaborating subtle changes over time rather than moving towards a sound or a different variety within the same construction. Experimental guitar 80's Frippian-style and space-tinged keyboard motifs backed by mostly energetic rhythms are the main components, and for a key audience I'd suggest any nearby space cadets to get on to this shuttle to sample this particular environment, alongside diehard followers of Fripp's guitar antics and those inspired by them.

Thanks to rivertree for the artist addition.
