Herd Of Instinct - Incantation (2019)

The fifth album from this US band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, chapman stick, percussion, keyboards, guitars, warr guitar, synth and piano.

The quartet had help from around ten guest musicians who provided warr guitar, moog, mellotron, organ, gong, violin, tambura, ebow and vocals.

The band continues as an instrumental quartet although there is a human voice here working as an instrument. But that only on one piece of music.

The band has become a lot heavier and has moved a lot more towards King Crimson on this album. 

There is a lot of small, but interesting details here too and that makes this album a lot more interesting than the previous album. 

We get fifty minutes here and that is fifty minutes who demands a lot from the listener. Although the music is instrumental, it is not easy listening music. 

It is indeed very technical music.

The quality is good throughout. I am not a big fan of instrumental prog albums. This band has some albums I quite like. Incantation is one of them.
