Ur Kaos - Ur Kaos (1987)
The debut album from this Swedish band.
The band was a trio with a lineup of clavinet, strings, keyboards, bass, guitars, drums and vocals.
This band released three albums during their short career before they were disbanded. They left a legacy and a reputation behind them. A very good reputation.
The band plays some form of avant-garde progressive rock. But the music is not totally avant-garde. The music is slightly melody orientated and melodic.
Us Kaos is just throwing strange sounds and rhythm figures after the melodies.
The result is some pretty harsh music. It also feels dissonant and dark. Mostly of it made by the bass.
The vocals too is pretty dissonant and adds good value to this album.
The melodic aspect makes the music lean a bit towards eclectic prog too. Van Der Graaf Generator and King Crimson is good references, indeed.
This is indeed a good album and one to check out.
