Sean Malone is the driving force and creative genius behind the ultra talented group Gordian Knot. With the band's latest release Emergent their heady lineup pumps out tracks of hard driving progressive rock and jazz-rock fusion to satisfy every type of progressive music lover's taste buds.

Malone and many others including Steve Hackett (Genesis, GTR) and Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson, and Genesis), add their many talents and experience to the seemingly endless ongoing development of each composition on this CD. The eight tracks of elating prog-rock come packaged with tight grooves, complicated rhythms, and odd timing and quick changes. To make the circle of events complete, all-inclusive sonics and engineering balance out the perfection of sound you will hear on each track. The discerning and sophisticated listener may be challenged to listen to this CD several times to pick apart all of the complexities found in every song.

Emergent indeed, this is one band you should stand up and take notice of now. Remember the name prog heads, Gordian Knot.
