Reductio Ad Absurdum
Dissonati Crossover Prog

3 stars Dissonati is one of the unknown american prog band from recent years with their debute released in 2012 named Reductio ad absurdum. Well, what we have here is pretty much ok and enjoyble to my ears, no bad moments at all as ratings show here. I like the sound and how pieces are constructed and aswell like the voice(s) on this album. Not overly complex or with many instrumental sections, but this 3 guys can offer some good passages like on opening track Can You Hear Me?, a 10 min tune that show what musical package they have in their pockets, and I mean a great pieces with lot to offer, from great voice of Ron Rutherford who has a very warm and fits perfectly in this type of music to very nice keyboards and guitars. Hagelbarger sign one piece Age Of Foeces and aswell sing, nice track aswell little influenced by Peter Hammill specially in vocal parts. Middle Man is another worthy track, very much influenced by King Crimson, specilly in guitar works, like all the pieces from the album, but in the end Reductio ad absurdum is more then pleasent. Some sax and woodwinds added in the mix here and there giving a fairly decent atmosphere. So all in all I like what I've heared here, ok, is nothing really impressive or groundbreaking, but is a good release that worth to be discovered, at least from KC listners. 3 solid stars for sure and don't judge it buy the low ratings , is not that bad as many pretend to be.

Reductio Ad Absurdum
Dissonati Crossover Prog

Review by Windhawk

3 stars US act DISSONATI was formed back in 2006, and appears to be the creative vehicle of Ron Rutherford. At least he is the main songwriter, and handles most of the instrumental duties himself. "Redcutio ad Absurdum" is the band's full length debut, and was self-released in the summer of 2012.

Accessible, melodic progressive rock of the easygoing kind is what Dissonati presents on their debut album, referencing symphonic progressive rock by association rather than style as such, and with nods in the direction of King Crimson in general and Robert Fripp in particular as a central and characteristic trait, again by association rather than performance and arrangements as such. An album worth exploring if you tend to enjoy melodic progressive rock without an abundance of challenging features, at the same time as you enjoy quirks and details of a more subtle nature overall.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
