It's very unusual, but cool! The vocals mixed with the guitar groove really had me head-boppin' by the two minute mark. Cool

Do you have a myspace? If so, I'll friend request you from my own music page, if that's alright.

Or if you don't, I'll just bookmark your reverbnation page.

we appreciate your comments... we still have 11 other songs to push out, we are mixing constantly, stay tuned...
we probably won't use myspace because they have a 10 song limit, and we intend on posting all the tunes.
Once we go through our critical listen phase, tighten up any loose ends on the mix, we are going to give the whole CD away free, via Bit Torrent download...

I see. Well, it's still good to be your myspace friend, anyway! haha.

Very generous of you to give away your work like that. I know many musicians who are doing that these days. I wish I could afford to do that with my music, and maybe someday I can. I think a lot of pro musicians are really looking at the whole download culture in absolutely the wrong light, but that's just me.

Having a listen to that new track now.

Y'know, this stuff sounds very RIO-inspired. Is that what you would consider yourselves? An Avant-Garde Prog band?

I was a music student in High school and College -- 30 years ago... studied Classical Performance, composition, all the usual stuff..., so my inspiration comes from decades of listening to prog and merging classical, jazz and rock....  I never thought about the actual sub-genre... 

The guitarist and I just sit around and tinker constantly with goofy-ass ideas until we get something going,  the music comes out the way it comes out -
 
I guess it could be avante-garde
 
BTW, we all have day jobs so we can afford to give the music away... however, my wife isn't happy about that since I spend every waking moment in the "Man Cave" i.e. Studio.

Great, you will have your review from Marty soon :-)

EDIT:

And here is promised review
I gave the album two "spins" and I will listen more in future, will then edit the rating / review if necessary.

Indeed Keishiro, very fantastic. At first I was shocked, surprised and pleased, all of this at once. 4(+) is my result. And it was hard to decide what the hell it actually is, but it's great :-)

Listened to the whole album through and I have to say that this is one of the most interesting albums I've heard in a while. The blend of styles (especially the Jazz influence) was phenomenal. Especially interesting to me was "The Cyclone," as I have wanted to hear a rock arrangement of "Night on Bald Mountain" for a long time and you really did a nice job with that.

Very well done!
