Vesania - s/t. 1999 Brazil

Brazil was a hotbed of creativity in the 1990s, much of which is sadly forgotten today. Vesania are an instrumental prog band with one foot in mid 70s King Crimson and the other in modern space rock motifs. Algaravia and Dialect are two other Brazilian bands operating in a similar space earlier in the decade, and are no less obscure. You can also hear the debut of France's Nebelnest creeping through here, though not quite as dynamic or intense. One could also view Vesania as a prototype for the Spanish band October Equus. Sure, I'm namedropping here, but if you know these bands of which I speak, then you'll want to know Vesania too. Otherwise work backwards through the review. Everyone goes home happy...
