I downloaded that Phideux album someone posted in the old forum some while ago (the cover had 3 cats). I don't remember who he was, but nevertheless, thanks, it's still a daily listen. Especially Microdeath Softstar (last song). One can't get any more epic than that. It's almost, dare I say, power metal area?

I downloaded some other stuff too, but deleted it quickly (or it has gone in my music archives to be deleted one day when I'll erase everything of unknown or forgotten origin), because it was too weird. Not Obscure like "wow, didn't expect that", but weird like "that's annoyingly crazy".

Anyhow, I hope you guys will put some stuff up again. If not, any recs would be appreciated.

Not a fan of Koenjihyakkei, eh?

Can't say I'm surprised. Definitely a band without broad appeal (but fantastic if you like that sort of stuff).

Yeah, I can see why someone would dislike them but I think that album is really great.

Yes, they are the ones I meant. From the first listens I just thought what the fuck was going on in there and how could anybody enjoy it. On the other hand, yeah, it must feel great if you actually dig that stuff. Not many people do I presume. I guess I'm too close minded for that. And to think my friends find Pink Floyd's Time intro is a weird feature.

Do you remember the name of the band by yourself or do you just copy/paste it from somewhere? The spelling I mean. I've got no Idea what the pronunciation would sound like.

I've typed the name enough that I remember it. I pronounce it "cone-gee-hi-ah-kay", but I have no idea if that's right.

Bobijs did you hear the Anglagard album? Or where you already familiar with it?

Been listening to an album called Boris from a band called Yezda Urfa, the music is really good, but this has to be THE worst produced album I've ever heard in my life. It is in fact an unreleased demo album. It's a shame because the music really deserved good production and an official release.

I've got a couple of weird ones here:

Dr. Dopo Jam - Entrée (1973)

Image

Here is some crazy Danish prog/jazz. I think it's like a combination of Gong and Jethro Tull. It's got some amazing saxaphone solos, and throws a lot of curveballs at you. Boo Boo, I think you'd like this band:

I can't find a working link for this, so I'll probably upload if anyone's interested Monday.

Cerberus Shoal - The Land We All Believe In (2005)

Image

This is some really weird fusion of avant-folk and prog. I don't know how to explain it really, just watch the video. This is like Man Man as a prog folk band with elements of drone and minimalism who have completely lost their minds. I highly recommend this guy here.

I'm just gonna make this into a Prog thread. I know we had both on the old forum, but there's no reason we can't have one thread for both.

You're welcome. You might want to check out The Great Leap too. Almost as good IMO:

It's prog rock by Japanese Magma fanatics with ADHD. Pretty fun, but I definitely need to be in the right mood for it.
