A new name but the band’s members have some real musical pedigree as you have vocalist Urban Breed (what a great name for a metal singer!) formerly of Tad Morose, who along with former band mate Danial Olsson, has hooked-up with Morgana Lefay drummer Pelle Akerlind. Bassist Johan Bergquist and guitarist Hasse Eismar round out the line-up.
Extravagant Isis ten year anniversary vinyl box-set. Conspiracy Records and Robotic Empire have decided to work together to release this box, limited to 600 copies worldwide (100 for the band, 250 for Europe and 250 for the US). All versions are exactly the same. The box includes 8 albums on 12 vinyl records, which come in new sleeves, especially designed for this box-set. All records are on black 180gr heavy vinyl.
Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. I have almost everything available by Mingus and had passed on this because I didn't think I needed yet more versions of some of his classics by what seems like an unlikely crew in tow. How wrong I was!!!! Mingus is apparently playing with a mic on his bass and you can easily hear what a monster he is, how sublime he can be, and it is totally thrilling. Coryell and Catherine have their flurry of notes thing going but it does not come off as showing off or dull fusion riffing. They - and the rest of the band- sound as if they were meant to be, really listening and bringing something wonderfully new to Mingus music.
