3 stars Music out of the ordinary is rather normal in progressive music, and Krokofant are certainly not normal. With a drum kit, an electric guitar and a saxophone this Norwegian trio are doing their best to sound so improvised messy as possible with their jazz fusion-metal with a psychedelic vein. Often chaos, but every once in a while the rhythm is structured into nicely rocking tunes, albeit packed with quirky paces and odd time marks, as in the brilliant Juice and enjoyable first half of Wrong Turn. However, the album can become monotonous after a while, some additional instruments in the Pot could have made it more dynamic although it might just as well have been even messier. I do like the Q uite deep and heavy guitar sound, and the drummer is doing an admirable job. Overall, too little structure for me to enjoy repeated listening, but fascinating music nevertheless. Anyone with any fondness of improvisational style sax while simultaneously handling heavy guitar riffs will want to invest some time with this one.
