Flamen Dialis - 7" (1978 ep)

01 Decouverte
02 Autre Chose

Flamen Dialis (a type of ancient Roman priest) releasing a single, "Decouverte", in 1978 and their sole album, "Symptome-Dei", a year later.

This really isn't like anything else you'll have heard
weird, dissonant, experimental, with strange wordless voices and a 'chamber' feel about much of it, but quite exceptionally good with it.

Flamen Dialis hailed from France, the music they made was progressive and psychedelic, but not exactly rock. It's weird and atmospheric, soundtracky stuff, very ritualistic and repetitive in nature. With chants and whispers, martial drums and zinging synths, vibraphone and Mellotron, flutes and even some brief blues guitar licks and what sounds like a rhythm machine. Like a soundtrack (or a dream), themes are revisted, and the album drifts smoothly from Medieval European to Eastern sounding exoticism. This was releashed on the Israel "MIO" label which is now out of business. This Cd is long out of print and quite hard to find.

I know that some of you aren't going to like this, but if you don't mind stepping outside the 'mainstream' prog lines, this album has an awful lot to offer. Personally i found this one absolutely f*ckin' stunning, i'am just silly for that kind of staff. A dangerous recommendation that reveals its beauty after some spins and demands your full attention.
So, are you feeling adventurous tonight?
