The trio is now releasing an opus on which melody, aggression, emotionality, virtuous musical craftsmanship and an impressive degree of compositional bravery coexist in a symbiosis that can justly be described as nothing short of flawless.
Considering the influences of Schizofrantik that range from bands like Slayer, Voivod and Celtic Frost via the Gothic-New Wave sound of Dead Can Dance or Germany’s Einstürzende Neubauten all the way to Primus, Rush, King Crimson and Mr. Bungle, on fact quickly dawns on the listener: simply putting the tag “progressive rock” on the new album would actually border on false understatement. The reason for that can actually be found in the already mentioned fearlessness. Because, even though his effective musical influence is not of enormous extent, Frank Zappa remains the most important of all the pioneers that have preceded Schizofrantik’s way.
