Herd of Instinct - Herd of Instinct

SKU Firepool 001
Djam Karet have started a new label not merely to release their own work but to be a real record label and release other artist's work. Good luck fellas! This include some really high profile guests like Gavin Harrison, Markus Reuter, Pat Mastelotto, etc. It's a very good King Crimson/Gordian Knot-styled, multi-guitar with multi-layers release that features a lot of really great Warr guitar stuff.

"In hot pursuit of the darkened, serpentine corridors of contemporary instrumental Progressive Rock music comes Texas' own Herd of Instinct and their 2011 debut CD. Four years in the making, this self-titled release is truly for fans of King Crimson, Steve Tibbetts, Djam Karet and big picture music. Pushing the limits of their own creativity, Herd of Instinct draws from a vast source of influences: multi-cultural music, literary clues, Horror and cinematic film scores, and obscure elements of Rock, Avant-garde, Electronic, Prog, and Psychedelic music. Recording sessions took place in Texas, North Carolina, and various global locations, from 2007-2010. As a live unit, Herd of Instinct performs as a trio, but during this recording process, the band decided to expand into a large-scale entity featuring many guest musicians including Dave Streett, whose secret treaties with such luminaries as Jerry Marotta (Peter Gabriel), Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, XTC), Gayle Ellett (Djam Karet), Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree), and Markus Reuter (Tuner) helped bring these all-star musicians into the Herd. The results are very provocative as evidenced by such songs as "Room Without Shadows," the lysergic "Road To Asheville," the schizoid-frenzy of "Anamnesis," the pagan majesty of "Hex," and the beautiful "Blood Sky" (the albums' lone vocal piece, courtesy of Kris Swenson). With looping samples provided by Steve Tibbetts, impeccable production, deep compositions, and impressive performances by all of the musicians involved, Herd of Instinct is a well-crafted, landmark debut album."
