4 stars DISEN GAGE ​​is a group, then a combination of Russian musicians is happening with their 7th album to agglomerate; jazzy atmospheres pulling the free, festive atmosphere, metal space, Argentine accordion, colorful carnival of sounds and the madness of interlocking sounds. DISEN GAGE ​​is a journey, a great adventure that rout and musical notes of all colors. It is a melting pot of sounds that may at first glance scare as the origins, sounds refer to unique musical styles, strange, staggering and incredibly fresh. I even read here and there "phosphorescent light energy"! It is by definition the "crossover" in the rough! I did not find groups or artists to guide you except perhaps Panzerballett or BREGOVIC,

"Shiroyama" begins with a percussive sound thick, a film strip with metal anthem and cold and some notes of guitar noise for introspective intro. "Adventurers" guitar again and his accordion for a heady air gypsy with at the end a more atmospheric air disorienting to have been added there. Beautiful and innovative, leaving us from boat or in heaven for a few moments. "Chaos Point" comes to a rhythmic nag, trumpet (yet ???). These days artists have given the range for reuse these instruments I thought put in the museum! The bass is fat and heavy, jerky and metronomic drums. It flirts a bit of jazz on the excesses "Red" KING CRIMSON. There is a clean cut with voice yelled death (the only time sung in fact) that brings the ... chaos. Then the piano back to a simpler basis while the saturated guitar again and a quieter end and a title that must be domesticated (personally I spent long moments trying to figure it out). "Enough" with its post-spleen-throbbing atmosphere and guitar echoes as on THE GUITAR ORCHESTRA (album of 91 to have at home) and overloops. On OSI also for the sweet-sliced ​​and hypnotic staccato- voltaic and guitar frippienne remains until the arrival of a clear and melancholic cello supported by a frank battery. Both plotting to release a saturated air and causing the perfect musical oxymoron. "All the Truths Meeting"

Follows a Spanish guitar, a synth accordion for the parade of the marching band. "Selfish tango" hence the name for a tango furious xylophone (I really have heard everything there !!) and where the second air is nervous with guitar energetic, vibrant and synth pads. It's almost hypnotic, frenzied, "crescendique" (yes we have to invent words to try to explain!), Creative on. And the small end as confusing with that look more rhythmic on an electrified waltz. "Carnival escape" the longest and most astonishing part: listen to it and think of James Bond to Ennio Morricone, to "Love Boat" at the carnival in Rio, where the synthetic orchestra did its job for a note festive and especially puzzling to the end with a guitar this time darker. "End" Closing these 46'10 '' with the merger of all their ideas more or less controlled, there are a piano bringing a gentle swirling guitar jazzy, then look more built with a beautiful solemn rise, such a step (Princely or mortuary!). At this point and after a few tens of listening, I began to find it beautiful.

Good conclusion is essential for this album available in digital and CD. At first, one might think to flee as the sounds are disparate both instruments seem distant from the progressive rock. although one is actually on the experimental prog may seem crazy. After reflection and several plays, the themes coalesce to provide a truly progressive patchwork, festive and boisterous. What is most surprising is that this album gives true nobility conventional instruments used, even if it is through programming. The second thing that comes to mind is that there is indeed a musical score in this unclassifiable album to listen, just to unclog ears. The commitment and innovation to their maximum for sentencing.
