4 stars The interesting thing about this Brazilian band's music is that it so successfully manages to NOT sound like anything else. They have taken their avant-garde sound to an arena that I have never experienced before and although that probably sounds like enough to scare off the musically unadventurous, this is not just random noise. This band has structure and patterns that do repeat although most often not.

SATANIQUE SAMBA TRIO is strange for many reasons. They are not particularly Satanic as far as I can gather. They are a quintet and although there is samba in this stew, they also incorporate jazz-fusion, bossa nova and rock. However none of these genres are instantly recognizable since they are all mangled together in such an extreme manner that this leaves you wondering if these guys have been licking rainforest frogs or something. You may or may not love this but you certainly won't leave thinking you've heard this all before.

The only thing that comes to mind when I hear this is what it would sound like if a chamber rock RIO band like Univers Zero decided to add all the above mentioned genres to the mix with a little electronics here and there and upped the tempo a bit with a lot more changes piled into their sound. That might come close but this band has carved out a musical niche that no one else has. The only question remains is will anyone follow. I did and i'm not sorry for it. If you love extremely unorthodox and challenging RIO fusion then you should check these guys out.
