If you can begin to wrap your head around the idea of a fusion of Relayer-era Yes, The latter day Magic Band (especially Ice Cream For Crow) and Butthole Surfers circa Hairway To Steven, you'll begin to comprehend what this acidically brainburning Russian power trio have cooked up here on their sole release, the sickness of which is clearly suggested by the title, which translates to "A Liturgy Of Madness". Working it's way up to some of the most beautiful, baffling and unaccountably emotionally wrenching musical conflagrations I've yet encountered, the elastic yet precision tooled rhythm section (worthy of Guru Guru) masterfully undergirds maneuvers of distended guitar eloquence that flame, squeal, whinny and howl in a way that's very Glenn Phillips as well, come to think of it. Almost beyond imagining.
