4 stars Excellent new : one shot is on progarchives!

Personnally i discovered this band live and they are outstanding.

James Mac Gaw (Guitar) has something from Fripp in his heart and also bring a personnal touch to developp new tortured harmonies that can't let King crimson fans cold!

Philippe Bussonnet is in my opinion one of the best electric bassist in the world (if not the best). His solos are incredible : he uses a distorsion pedal and many effect, creating an outstanding frippian harmonic war machine.

Emmanuel Borghi brings a Return to forever and h hancock touch to their zheul KC influenced music. Jeand'heur is a quite impressive too an assume is rule of volcanic center of the band and offers some nasty moments too!

The first piece Ewaz vader is already a classic and should be given a try by every prog rock lover. In those difficult times where many soft fusion bands try to make something new and are filed under jazz rock, those guys synthetize jazz-rock and King crimson frippertonicas with an incredible sens of rythm and outstanding improvisation moments!

4 stars
