patosmachos Nektar is awesome, so hearing this cover be even better than the original made me need this! Adrift in Time is some serious prog rock! Favorite track: Adrift in Time.

"King of Twilight" is released in anticipation of Theater of the Absurd's forthcoming full-length prog opus, "Death in Aspiration." Featuring two adventurous new compositions and an inspired take on a Nektar classic, this EP demonstrates the band's maturity and spectacular elan. The title track is a new interpretation of the 1972 original, invigorated with blistering intensity and the outfit's signature male/female vocal scheme. "Adrift in Time" is an introspective and emotionally complex piece of music that incorporates a string quartet to great effect. In "Cor Inquietus," an ambitious progressive affair that's exclusive to this EP, intricate instrumentation and an extended Fender Rhodes solo take center stage.

Theater of the Absurd play dark and dramatic progressive metal. The group is inspired equally by its love for '70s prog rock, avant-garde metal, philosophy and literature. At times haunting, beautiful, and challenging, the music is as theatrical and grandiose as the band's namesake implies. ... more
