3 stars Spain is offering another intresting band named Gurth, with one album released so far named Tormentes in 2008 at russian label Mals. Hmm, this is chalenging and adventurous music, mainly instrumental with ocasionaly vocal parts. Inspired by King Crimson or Frank Zappa musical creaziness but with a good doze of jazz fusion elements thrown in, makes Torments a pleasent ride but in the end not quite fantastic. The pieces are dynamic, the guitars remind me of Fripp most of the time with uplifting parts but also some passages have that jazzier calmer melodic moods of DiMeola and obove all these add some quirky keyboards and strange (for me) vocal lines and you have DiMeola meets King Crimson in old fashion way. All pieces are ok most of the time, mainly instrumental, more then decen musicinship makes from Torments a worthy listning for sure. 3.5 stars for this little known album.
