Yurt biography
YURT is a powerful trio from Dublin, Ireland, consisting of Steven Anderson (guitar, electronics & vocals), Boz Mugabe (Yurtstick, electronics & vocals) and Andrew Bushe (drums). Formed in late 2006, YURT has a strong focus on "conducting experiments in the broader fields of progressive rock", quoting their statement at their Myspace page. Their overall sound takes strong elements from the traditions of space-rock, stoner, guitar-centered kraut and early 70s psychedelia into a well-defined heavy prog framework. The band's debut album "Ege Artemis Yurtum" was released in 2009, the follow-up "Archipelagog" being released in 2011: considered as two steps in a single musical travel, these items together reflect quite properly the sort of magic and intensity that YURT delivers for the preservation of progressive experimentation in today's rock scene.

— First review of this album —
3 stars Irish band YURT was formed back in 2006, and have been recording artists since 2009. Three albums have seen the light from the band since it's inception, and a fourth is actually being finalized for launch these days as well. "III - Mollukkepokk" is their third studio album, and was self-released by the band in 2016.

"III - Molluskkepokk" comes across for me at least as a more metal-oriented variety of Hawkwind style music, a tad simpler in approach and execution and with an obviously harder drive and edge. To my mind a band that sounds best when they are closer rather than further away from Hawkwind-sounding territories, and where the vocals for me becomes a slightly detrimental element. Hawkwind fans with a taste for metal and metal fans with a taste for Hawkwind appears to me to be the prime candidates to check this one out.

Thanks to cesar inca for the artist addition.
