Heard a lot about them, never heard them though....until now!! This is gut wrenching hard jazz fusion/prog rock rolled into one brilliant package, with superb musicianship time signatures breaks that will make your head spin !! Zappa would have loved this band!!
Guitarist Zerfeld and sax player von Hagke shines through the whole album, with their individual soloing and often breakneck duels. What you get here is true progmusic with thundering drums (Lanser) powerchords and tunes that surprises and inspires..imagine a heavy rock band fused with a jazz rock outfit. Now add to that wonderful and weird ideas, one minute you listen to hardcore jazz fusion, the next heavy induced rock with fabulous guitar leads, tunes that are so complex you wanna hear them a second time, to understand
suddenly the "Muppet Show" theme appears briefly only to glide into a cauldron of towering musical splendour, never letting up on their musical ideas, thundering themes, changing tones like it were their last chance on earth to deliver this brilliant music!
I am very surprised, very pleasantly intrigued by this fine band! You might argue that nothings new here?! Yes well, not like these guys!! you MUST hear this band, this album, then pass judgment!
Me? I love this album ( havent heard their former releases) meanwhile I praise this outing and if you liked the aforementioned sentences you will love this album and band!
Oh my..they even have their own take on the "Pink Panther" theme ...wonderful..just wonderful!! Ending with a true jazzy theme...WOW!!
