With its complexity and instrumental richness, its ability to develop anguishing themes and electric rises and its overgrowing tension, SHYLOCK has often been compared to KING CRIMSON. Actually, this instrumental combo also belongs to wild and intricate Progressive rock with tormenting atmospheres, but has its own personality. The latter is expressed through overwhelming lyricism and refined romanticism, a bit like PULSAR. With its schizoido-electronic dimension, SHYLOCK can also make you think of HELDON. What's more, each musician is a real virtuoso, especially guitarist Frédéric L'EPEE and outstanding drummer André FISICHELLA. As ""Gialorgues"" (1975) can be considered as a very good debut album, ""Ile de Fievre"" (1979) is widely known as an absolute masterpiece. Definite talent !
