Drawing on the singular talents of vocalist and producer Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari (Berserk!, Obake), innovative guitarist Carmelo Pipitone (Marta sui Tubi) and internationally renowned musicians Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson) and Colin Edwin (Porcupine Tree) O.R.k is an intriguing collaborative album which defies easy categorization yet remains gratifyingly accessible.
The debut album fuses primordial energy with playful acoustic psychedelia and precise math rock, but with an added seasoning of deep ambient electronica.
Imposing, but also encompassing a hypnotic, powerful beauty, O.R.k. is a forward thinking, mischievous slap around the head of complacency, and a captivating listen from start to finish.
