4 stars Gnomonaut is a young heavy prog band from USA with one album in their pockets so far, released this year 2011 and named The Chronocosm. I was very pleasent surprised by this album, it contains everything a heavy prog must have. The band is clarly influenced by bands like King Crimson, Rush , Black Sabbath and bands from psychedelic/space realm but meltedwith their own twists, the result is a pretty great one in every sense of the word. What I like is that Gnomonaut manage to take all the influences from the artists they love and turned into one unit, pieces like Bekajamir or ManBearPig among others are excellent examples of how Gnomonaut understands music these days. Heavy guitars but yet melodic combined with some great psychedelic space moments, makes from this The chronocosm a real winner in present prog music. Great musicianship on every piece, with plenty of good ideas and serious talent shown. Two covers ended the album the fantastic Red of famous King Crimson, great in this context and even greater the Black Sabbath Wizard, simply amazing with flute and sax interluded with the rest of the instruments. Also I like a lot the spoken voice of the old man between the pieces, the old man who apear on the excellent cover art, funy and intristing in same time. So , a recommended album, 4 stars easy , fans of heavy prog and bands mentioned above will love this album, as I deed.
