Releases, in threes [#2] a 'Psych Disorder'

In "Releases, in threes" three albums of about the same genre or attitude (or not) are reviewed in brief. Probably one would enjoy listening the three of them in a row, no matter the order. 
Entry #2: a 'Psych Disorder'.
- YURT - "III-Molluskkepokk"
- TAMAN SHUD - "Oracle War"
- IT'S NOT NIGHT: IT'S SPACE - "Our Birth is but a Sleep and a Forgetting"


Yurt - III - Molluskkepokk
 Yurt - III-Molluskkepokk (2016, Ireland)
The band about themselves: "YURT gathered at the dusk of 2006 with a criteria of conducting experiments in the broader field of progressive rock music."
Us about the band: brain-melting prog rock with metal & space rock extensions.
Facts: 3rd full album. The definition of a "prog-psych disorder".
Short comment: Nothing you've heard lately resembles this shit (probably).
Strong points: the dramatic atmosphere created by the insistent percussion, bass and guitar playing, framed by the sci-fi electronics and the "stressful" vocals.
We want... more from a band that seems to have been born for experimenting.
Best places to enjoy it: Anywhere dark. Try it with headphones.
For a quick taste... press play on Testament Zero.

Best places to enjoy it: In a big hall with the amps turned up to eleven.
For a quick taste... press play on Oracle War.
