4 stars HERD OF INSTINCT is a Texas rock instrumental progressive hybrid group that comes out notes from the prog world, post-rock, minimalist, jazz, psychedelic, avant-garde film and ethnicity. From contemporary music to the ART ZOYD universe, dinosaurs that are GENESIS or KING CRIMSON, complex sounds of ANEKDOTEN, Philip Glass, a bit of Peter Gabriel, some HELDON to THINKING PLAGUE, the first PORCUPINE TREE and their mentor DJAM KARET for dark music, instrumental and intimate. HEI moving his music in dense convolutions intense bunk drawers to make us dream. HEI was formed from the ashes of 99 NAMES OF GOD and plays to create "interesting music."

"Sun Gun" starts the album an atmosphere frippienne quite dark, although enhanced by the use of various instruments at the Chapman Stick Rick Read and fruity Mark Cook guitars; it's playful, although the sounds of "Red" is also intimate. "Incantation One" follows a more dynamic way and dark with the voice of Elaine limit science fiction; more present synths and rhythmic with OSI moments with a big riff leading to the limit of controlled improvisation; As hovering halfway through where the dark sounds cleared late more airy, like a waterfall with droplets of fresh water. "Coin Locker Babies" happens more in a hard movement at that time when we do not know too well if the hard helped the prog gasoline or the reverse; The bass of Steve Harris is found here and a riff IRON MAIDEN somewhat muted is fusion and magical. "Prey 4 Winter" off again on a more dynamic atmosphere up again eyeing the instruments here to "Discipline" is energetic, it's fresh and melancholy guitar that stretches the notes helps me think a little QUANTUM Fantay even SPECIAL PROVIDENCE or ANEKDOTEN for atmosphere typical. It is also in a major progressive vein, fusing the sounds of various eras and out in a crucible '' melting pot ''. "Myth and Ritual" arrives as an interlude, an orchestral piece in two parts honoring Scott Walker disappeared during the recording, a short majestic moment that can turn buckle, which provides a gravity of the moment. it's magical fusion.

"Abaddon" attack on an atmosphere worthy of "Thrak" dark, complex, unstructured limit, the instruments are calmer, the atmosphere is heavier, nervous, almost stifling or oppressive, but the second half brought a more linear rate up at the end in fireworks. "Pavement Gray" from him as a dark and lit a beautiful darkness in the style ALL TRAPS ON EARTH could compose lately; this is what we can imagine a Scandinavian sound with the musical paradigm that goes with it. There is a beautiful rhythmic progression in this sweet and denser as well. "Temples" with a violin in the Jean-Luc Ponty for a title for intimate again, cold, on a background of languid melancholy, with an imposing bass on an air of staggering beauty, so beautiful that we forget the reminiscences: it's beautiful with frippienne guitar is even more enjoyable with the return of the violin, looking as share on tribal rhythms dear to Peter Gabriel. "Incantation Two" on an intro that could have accommodated Philip Glass, an air boundary of spleen but also there where a voice mantra propels us directly to heaven; a title with ethereal voice, which can get out of a movie soundtrack as "Time of the Gypsies" for the power of melody, a singular title by the hypnotic final. "Torture Garden" concludes the album with new tribal air to a dark atmosphere like "Passion" Peter Gabriel; low to Tony Levin well in hand, a dull air, rhythmic posed with reverb, Rick is very loving, dreamlike way to bring us here to this column. it is even more enjoyable with the return of the violin, looking as share on tribal rhythms dear to Peter Gabriel.

HERD OF INSTINCT is a musical bomb, this 5th album is much better than "Conjure" in 2013 on which I had already stopped when I had known; HOI wrote a beautiful opus motley music, unclassifiable, beyond the dark and disturbing atmosphere of the best KING CRIMSON. HOI has created his own musical paw, HOI released a wonderful album, even if such is not mine. HOI may bring you to a state of decay, not sublimation as on the cover.
