the iceburn collective - meditavolutions


released 1997

this band simply went by the name iceburn at one time (you can find their FIRON album here)...but towards the end of their career threw on "the" and "collective" as they began to expand on their already established "jazzcore" style...taking their material into a more improvised "avant-garde" direction by releasing songs that went into 20+ minutes territory

so if you like slint...tool (that's right)...king crimson (is mentioning tool and king crimson redundant?)...some john zorn...maudlin of the well...the ocean (another "collective" band from out of germany)...or actually any sort of "math rock"...this be fer yew

and if you've never heard of either maudlin of the well or the ocean...well shame on you...and yeah...i realize those may be more a CGB kind of thing...still...expansion doesn't just have to go on under the zipper of your pants (or the waistline for that matter)
