O.R.K. - Soul Of An Octopus (2017)
The second album from this London. UK based band.
The band is a quartet with a lineup of computers, trumpet, synths, bass, drums, guitars and vocals.
The lineup of this band is still Paul Mastelotto and Colin Edward with two others.
Their 2015 debut album Inflamed Rides was an interesting album indeed. See my review somewhere else in this blog.
The band is nicely combining prog metal, funk, jazz and progressive rock on this album. A bit Porcupine Tree meets King Crimson and King's X.
This band is very playful and that comes across in their music. A very lively, noisy music.
The music is also very eclectic with lots of intricate details.
It is also very rewarding listening as the sound is great and there is lots of details here to make a proghead happy.
This is indeed a good album well worth checking out for everyone into eclectic prog.
