Rise of a New Ideology

distant planet Awesome !!
Only two tracks available so far but on the evidence of these, this could seriously be album of the year.
'Democracy Cannot Survive' is a hazy, blend of post-rock and prog that drifts into oblivion and back.
'Anger In Storage' combines full on in your face prog with the urgency of King Crimson and the mystery of Edgar Allan Poe. These boys have a wicked sense of humour too, listen to the voice-overs.

marcusalmightygemineye Another fantastic band I've come across of late. It only took one listen to this to make me buy the vinyl version. This should be in every prog fans collection in my humble opinion.

Meathead9999 After recently discovering their previous release, I had to pick this new release as well - got the limited edition CD version.
Similar in basic style to that release, so see my comments for that release - just buy both!
First 2 listens, and I'm hooked! WOW!
Great job guys! Favorite track: They See Science as Dangerous.

about

This is the second album by Irish post-rock proggers Zombie Picnic. 6 related tracks of progressive instrumental experimentation aim to bring you on a journey, accompanied by the thoughts and ideas of Issac Asimov, Bill Moyers, Sherry Wolf, Paul R. Ehrlich, President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the strange Number Stations of shortwave radio, but to when?

What PROG Magazine have to say about it:

"Keeping the flag of instrumental prog flying in Limerick, Ireland, Zombie Picnic return with their second album, Rise of a New Ideology (Golden Shred). Using portentious soundbites from TV news and interviews, they do for overpopulation and futurism what Public Service Braodcasting did for the space race and miners. Leader Jim Griffin's lyrical guitar dominates bold, engaging arrangements that drift from Floydian space rock to Crimsonesque clangour to the squalling punk of a Television or Wire. It's compelling, well-measured stuff from a band who clearly have something exciting on the go."
Grant Moon, PROG Magazine, Issue 87.
