5/5 starts for The Blessed Beat MIV album.

"Indecent wonder from an international trio who can raise and rouse the dead and get away with it.
Every chord is sacred, unless it holds a tritone, but this band base their melodic flow on bliss of a peculiar kind. There’s often beauty in the eye of the beholder and Charles Bukowski’s “The Copulating Mermaid in Venice, California” – that’s what “MIV” stands for – makes a point of it, as do guitarist David Kollar and trumpeter Paolo Rainer. The two were parts of KOMARA, yet since Pat Mastelotto returned to his CRIMSO duties, on board came Simone Cavina whose drumming is looser, just as the story’s interpretation dictates. As far as sonic depiction of a charged madness goes, “Doesn’t Looks Dead To Me” rages wildly to fathom a chthonic, FX-miasma-filled depth, and it’s down there that a beating heart of delight lies, signalled by a lone wind coda.
