A Triggering Myth - Same (Jazz Rock/Fusion • United States)
The band was formed in 1989 by Rick Eddy and Tim Drumheller, an American duo of multi-instrumentalists who handle keyboards, guitars, percussions, flute and trumpet, although they regularly enlist the contribution of talented guest musicians on drums and percussion. Heavily keyboard based (especially the piano), their style is a curious mixture of jazz, rock and classical (symphonic) music with dark, mysterious overtones without being sinister - more like suspenseful. Even when the guys kick into high gear the atmosphere remains tension-filled. As far as comparisons go, names such as GENTLE GIANT, VDGG or ELP have surfaced but none truly convey the originality of this twosome, whose sublime interplay and strong emphasis on counterpoint cleverly blends all of these bands' styles and more, resulting in a unique contemporary sound of its own.
Their music seems to become more unusual and complex with every new output. Their second album, 'Twice Bitten", already shows much maturity over their self-titled debut, both in playing and in composition. Their second and third releases, "Between Cages" and "The Sins of our Saviours", continue somewhat in the same vein whereas their fifth, "Forgiving Eden", is a single 43:32-minute suite divided into several movements. A superb work of art where the addition of guitarist Scott McGill and drummer Vic Stevens infuse the music with still more fusion elements.
If you like music that is particularly unconventional, even unpredictable, you'll be in Canterbury heaven with this band's material: a rich production of music that boldly dares to diverge from the conventional rock formulas.
