about

"Play this thing over and over because one solitary spin won’t come close to doing it justice—you can go down this disc’s labyrinth of ingenuity for years and hardly ever come up for breath." - Darren Bergstein, DOWNTOWN MUSIC GALLERY, NYC

Laik Tors is the third album from the Sheffield-based trio. It follows their eponymous debut and follow-up "Adios Al Futuro", both of which featured in Prog Rock "Top 20" charts and helped establish the band as a vital voice in modern progressive music. Both attracted excellent reviews, neatly summarised by “they seem to encapsulate and deconstruct the entire history of British avant-rock in one fell swoop”.

This new recording is a natural progression, building on and refining their core sound, which features a combination of composed and improvised music. The trio have many overlapping musical influences and a shared love of improvisation. However, it is the melding of their unique individual styles that brings it together within a modern context.

Commentator Sid Smith says: "Is it jazz? Is it rock? Is it folk? Is it prog? Is it electronica? The answer is all of the above and probably a lot more besides. Not that Das Rad care and neither should you. Energetic, incisive and infused with an inquisitive, passionate spirit, Das Rad create music that goes where it needs to. Do what you can to join them on that journey."
