Disen Gage - Libertage (2006)

The second album from this band from Moscow, Russia.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, synths, bass and guitars.

I reviewed their 2004 debut album Screw-Loose Entertainment for ProgArchives back in the summer of 2008. I then got Libertage and forgot about the band altogether. The band has in the meanwhile released five more albums.

The band is King Crimson admirers. That's for certain after listening to the one hour long Libertage.

The band has gone a bit longer in the avant-garde direction than the masters themselves.

Add in some post-rock and jazz too with lots of half-acoustic guitars.

The music is alien to most of us and it is very much avant-garde. Madly avant-garde.

Parts of this album is rather good and parts of it is decent enough. I find half an hour of this album pretty enjoyable and a gift which keeps on giving. The rest... not so giving.

Avant-garde fans should check out this band.

2.5 points
