Rovo and System 7
Phoenix Rising (CD)
In stock and available now
An incredible blend of psychedelic, progressive jam band rock and techno
A dynamic true fusion of musics creating vibrantly new sounds. A fantastic double drummer rhythm section, Miquette's high-synth sensibilities and funkiness blending with Rovo's keyboards and synths, electric violin phrases to die for interweaving with Steve's by turns encouraging and soaring guitar lines.
It's sometimes Can-like, has deepest Hawk-jam moments, Pentagramaspinic echoes, muti-layered psychedelic space grooves, a brilliant cover of the Mahavishnu Orchestra's 'Meeting of the Spirits' (which is a long cherished desire of Steve's fulfilled), and in the end the embracing warm bliss and gentle re-entry of the Japanese hot spring inspired 'Unseen Onsen' - phew! With each successive track you think you have reached THE high point of the album - then along comes the next one and you realize - OMG - there's higher...It's a bloomin' mountain range of highs.
Beautiful gate-fold digipak with an 8 page full colour booklet insert.
