A new album from the band of which Gibraltar Encyclopedia Of Progressive Rock wrote: "If you're into the "totally free improv" style of music, these guys are among the best I've ever heard." These guys are Mika Kallio (drums), Kari Ikonen (keyboards) and Esa Onttonen (electric guitar).
Recorded live during the last four concerts of the March 2003 tour, this album finds Gnomus unearthing sonic fantasies darker, heavier and more sinister than on its acclaimed debut album of 2000 (out of print). These completely improvised tracks come from three different performances, offering relatively broad view to the art of improvisation as envisioned by Gnomus.
"The playing is precise and fiercely complex, yet at the same time spare and efficient... II is both disquieting and hypnotic, like a cold troubled sleep from which it's impossible to wake." -Aural Innovations
"Gnomus again prove to be pushing at new frontiers and breaking them... They are definitely an act to keep an eye and ear on!" -Audion
"Very recommended to fans of strikingly original dark music." -New Gibraltar Encyclopedia of Progressive Rock
"... their surreal B-movie horror improvisation intrigues and seduces with wit, utter strangeness and puzzle-like structures." -All About Jazz
