000 (Triple Zero)

Crypto Sensus (1985)

Only album by this Instrumental French band featuring two members of dark Zeuhl monsters Shub Niggurath. The general sound is something similar, but much more frantic than most of Shub Niggurath’s output. Another guy joins them on electronics, giving this trio a somewhat different sound than the other Zeuhl/RIO bands of the time. I’m reminded of Ruins on tracks where the bass and drumming get really frenzied like on “Part II”, and may also think of “Red”-era King Crimson as an overall influence. The bonus track included on the reissue suggests to me that had this band continued, they probably would have gone in a more electronic-driven direction. An album to check out for anyone into the darker side of prog.
