4 stars Funny band name! However, stylistically they are flexible definitely, no question. With the focus on dual guitar action and varied rhythm work, plus minimalistic keyboard respectively synthesizer attendance. Post/math bands often enough are sounding single tracked, when it comes to my taste, or are exaggerating their trickiness. Though here we have a well balanced relation of finesse and accessibility to state. The six songs are completely instrumental, furthermore also striving for an eclectic blend of quite different progressive rock moves.

So come what may, yet the opener Ingravido - a thriving affair - will hold you in place, I'm sure. Antiheroe then may top this due to a gripping flow, including acoustic guitar and repetitive keyboards. Hereafter I was caught ... overall the songs are provided with a proper, fusionesque, even partially funky groove. Impala Formidable - the title says it all - if I had to sum this up with a short header, 'King Crimson Go Space Rock', it would be. A passionate progressive rock fan should not miss that. 4.5 stars so far for this improvement.
