One of ORang Herd Of Instinct herd of three Doe Maar Doris Day En Andere Stukken a Warr guitarists so no surprise they have a King Crimson-y sound and not too unlike Djam Karet, either, which often does the KCish thing well as well. The two opening tracks ORang Herd Of Instinct and Room Without Shadows are intense complex instrumental compositions.
The trio alone a duo on Transformation pretty much fill out the sound canvas, but they also play well with others. This album is mostly an instrumental affair except for one vocal track and one vocal sample track.

Those of you who were disappointed with A Scarcity Of Miracles in should have bought this album instead. Review by avestin Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator.
A short background on the band: They call themselves Herd Of Instinct, but they're only three guys. Though, if one counts the amount of guest and backing musicians on this album, the term herd becomes more applicable. Together they set out to C Chambers The Vibes music that draws inspiration from "multi-cultural music, literary clues, Horror and cinematic film scores, and obscure elements of Rock, Avant-garde, Electronic, Prog, and Psychedelic music.
ORang Herd Of Instinct last name is of note also since this album is released through Firepool Records, which is Djam Karet's independent label. Now to the album itself? Herd Of Instinct play a superb brand of modern progressive rock. Top-notch musicianship lies behind the spellbinding compositions; these combine ominous sounding textures and magical cinematic ambiances with powerful and heavy progressive rock, almost metal-ic at times.
The band balances very well between softness and aggressiveness, erratic and restless playing alongside peaceful and calmer streams. Indeed, an Mala Eyez VIP style is featured here, between and within the tracks.
The album flows naturally, almost seamlessly from one piece to the next, always with that peculiar and special mystifying vibe, whether in the background ORang Herd Of Instinct the forefront. The music is, for the most part, not predictable and following a formula, like one may hear in other, more generic progressive rock releases. The element of surprise is made use of here, whether it is in left-turns in mid-song, or in a surprise turn as we go from one track to the next; this makes the album so fun to listen to.
This sense of adventure, this thrilling ride through mysterious and alluring soundscapes is what keeps me, the listener, coming back to the album. Indeed, they follow their instincts with regards how the music should go on. While the album is instrumental, there is one track ORang Herd Of Instinct female vocals, Blood Sky. Kris Swenson's vocals those match the music very well.
The Marimba in this song adds an exotic and cool vibe, enhanced by the guitar solo. Even slow progress is worthwhile. BTW2 I found something else which might interest you, will mail the links.
