Dean Kimball I bought Fantastic Freak Show then after listening to about half of it I bought their entire discography. Don't make my mistake, just buy the discography first, you won't regret it. These guys are incredible, one of the best Psy-Rock bands I've heard. On top of that, these are almost all 24/48 and 24/96 recordings so their collection price is an amazing bargain. I have no clue how I missed these guys until now but I have a bunch of listening to do right now. :-)

Judy Humphries Joyous post rock album; high energy guitar-and percussion driven passages interspersed with beautiful lyrical, melodic vocal.

JLAbad For me, the best work of KingBathmat (sorry for Fantastic Freak Show Carnival, stays in second place). Sublime compositions, complex and well executed instrumentation and amazingly perfect voices and choirs. Favorite track: Parasomnia.

Sentinel 08:46
SENTINEL so far, so long from this road I've strayed too far here is my shadow the final star overhead looms down on me so laughs apollo the monster from within shows no fear of letting go Sentinel - change the tone, turn on up the light Sentinel - change the tone, turn on up the light dark soul of the night, mirror every shape I make shadow cast by light, thou art already awake evil eye, look away no matter where I am, I hear it say no one here can understand you feeling down, my sense's weak the villain from within my soul it seeks no one here can understand you no one understands you no one understands you their scheming, missleading, decieving, its all wrong no one understands you no one understands you their scheming, missleading, decieving, its all wrong no one here can understand you no one here can understand you no one understands you no one understands you their scheming, missleading, decieving, its all wrong no one understands you no one understands you their scheming, missleading, decieving, its all wrong so far, so long from this road I've strayed too far here is my shadow

Parasomnia 09:36
PARASOMNIA calling the visitor into view nightfall administer of dreams so true I need you to believe, wheres everybody with that spell that you weave, I disembody observe my body from above the door calling the visitor into view nightfall administer of dreams so true I need you to believe wheres everybody with the spell that you weave, I disembody cannot stay awake, my eyes now closed awaken in a room, which I don't know white covers the walls, glass for a floor electric in my veins, discharging walk amongst those near faces seem strange I recognise your look no not your name you've aged about ten years yet we've never met from me my thoughts you are, your stealing Parasomnia drain my energy through the night Parasomnia drain my energy, leave on the lights so mercurious, your trick it fell foul alcohol free, no spirits allowed vivid sights pass through my optical nerve senses overload, it feels real Parasomnia drain my energy through the night Parasomnia drain my energy, leave on the lights

Kubrick Moon 11:37
KUBRICK MOON black is the screen that so transforms you alchemical celluloid no matter how vast the darkness a light shines within the void flying high toward the sun theres no return the wings of love shall burn wait for you to wake in dreamland suspend disbelief, and open up the sky focus on the moon, silver screen orbiting your mind for thought creates this world cinescreen, cube of space align, geometric grace sowing an esoteric grain mechanized overload pre program digital soul calling you all will be explained

about

"Overcoming The Monster" deals with the theme of psychological obstacles (monsters of the mind) that are manufactured in our thoughts, both internally through our insecurities, externally by the outside influence of others and collectively through the mass media which uses fear as a tool to manipulate our perceptions. "Overcoming The Monster" addresses the need to ignore these clandestine forms of control and rise above the Illusory obstacles that are placed in our path in order to deliberately block opportunities that are accessible to everybody.
