Boundary-Breaking, Cinematic Industrial Ethno-Rock From
King Crimson’s Pat Mastelotto and Renowned Avant-Experimentalists David Kollar and Paolo Raineri.
It fucks with your head and has the ability to fluctuate your levels of sobriety even if your system is clean of drink and mind-altering drugs. But as far as mindfucks go, this is damnably compelling.With album art coming from the bewilderingly ingenious mind of Tool guitarist Adam Jones, Komara is a foray into obscure territories.
Dirty Smelly sounds like sin and seduction. . ., reverb lavished trumpets and twinkling sound effects spreads about the song’s atmosphere like a vile of blood dropped into a glass of crystal clear water. It blots the palette in mesmeric fashion, the red of the blood moving about the water like tree roots venturing through soil for nutrients. Deeper in those waters a venomous, barking bass line dwells and gives the whole a definitively nastier guise.
Mastelotto has been a member of every King Crimson lineup from 1994 to the present. In addition to King Crimson, he was with Mr Mister, XTC, David Sylvian, the Rembtandts, Steven Wilson, Terry Bozzio, Trey Gunn, Allan Holdsworth, John Paul Jones, and Kimmo Pohjonen, Tony Levin and dozens more.
Slovakian guitarist and composer David Kollar has released nine expansive albums, scored 18 films and worked on many multimedia projects. He’s also worked with Eivind Aarset, Gergo Borlai, Bjorn Charles Dreyer, Lenka Dusilová.
Trumpeter Paolo Raineri takes his instrument and processes it in real-time to create ethereal, otherworldly sounds. The Italian musician combines Scandinavian nu-jazz influences with psychedelic rock, In addition, he’s performed with Stefano Battaglia, Berserk!, The Blessed Beat, Baustelle, Calibro 35, Nada, and Enrico Gabrielli.
