http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=3236 - Phlox
This Estonian band has been around since 1999 and has released 3 albums I think, of which I have only listened to their 2007 release http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=16807 - REBIMINE + VOLTIMINE  which made me suggest it enthusiastically to the jazz-rock team from which Alucard (Martin) has done a fine job of adding them.
I also have been in touch with Pearu from the band and he has been kind enough to send this bio to PA:
 
'Phlox' is a fusion/prog rock band from Tallinn, Estonia, formed in 1999 by Kristo Roots (g), Raivo Prooso (perc), Rainer Kapmann (dr) and Priit Holtsmann (b). Although the line up has gone through numerous changes over the years, most of the members usually have close ties with 'MKDK', a jazz-rock/avant garde record label, non-profit organization and movement of artists and musicians, who frequently switch from one band to another, especially between 'Phlox',' BF' and 'Lippajad'. The first album, "Fusion", was recorded in late 2000, shortly after that Priit Luming (sx, cl), Allan Prooso (perc) and Pearu Helenurm (kb) joined the group. During that period
the band’s music became more improvisational, from completely deconstructing
their own compositions to having shows where they tried to avoid anything resembling rhythmic structures or harmony. In May 2004 the band's second album "Piima" ("Milk") was recorded in the MKDK Studio, with Margo Pajula on drums and Kalle Klein on sax, using strictly vintage analogue equipment. In 2007, with Madis Zilmer of fusion group 'BF' on drums, 'Phlox' completed its latest album to date, "Rebimine + voltimine" ("Tearing and folding"), which saw the band’s return to straightforward tight structured fusion and prog.

http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=16807 - REBIMINE + VOLTIMINE  is a thrilling jazz-rock album with some zeuhlish sounds and avant-garde touches, dynamic and at times experimental and overall a veyr satisfying listen.
Recommended.

OoooO
 
I don't own any albums at all. Maybe any Japanese shops don't list up on catalogues. Embarrassed

It is indeed quite good. Thumbs%20Up
 
Certainly not your average J-R/F. I especially like the avant nature they brought into their sound.

Dig me...But don't...Bury me
I'm running still, I shall until, one day, I hope that I'll arrive
