Monkey3 fans must be brave now. The path of "trippy grooves, heavy riffs and spacy keyboard landscapes", which the Swiss quartet has been following for five albums, according to the official band website, has not been abandoned with the new album "Astra Symmetry", no, but has been geared towards new target coordinates.
For Synästhetiker Townsend "Transcendence" is an album in "blass-lilac". What exactly the Canadian associates with this colour will be revealed in the upcoming issue of eclipsed. With its horizonless sound the album is in line with its predecessor "Sky Blue", "Accelerated Evolution" and "Epicloud", whereby the really wacky passages have been reduced to a minimum ("Higher").
