This Celestial Engine are an exciting new project that fuses the talents of three remarkable musicians from diverse musical backgrounds- drummer Ted Parsons (Swans, Prong, Godflesh, Killing Joke, Jesu), bassist Dave Sturt (Gong, Steve Hillage Band, Bill Nelson), and keyboardist Roy Powell (InterStatic, Anthony Braxton, Mumpbeak with Bill Laswell). Their album delivers a unique blend of experimental ambient avant-jazz rock

Hailing from various corners of the globe, these seasoned musicians united in the vibrant city of Oslo, Norway, where they formed This Celestial Engine. The resulting collaboration has given birth to a sound that is nothing short of otherworldly, transcending the boundaries of conventional music genres.

Das Rad - where krautrock grooves, extended arrangements, free improvisation and electronic abstraction all meet in the creative centre of the sound. Commentator Sid Smith (Prog Magazine) says: "Is it jazz? Is it rock? Is it folk? Is it prog? Is it electronica? The answer is all of the above and probably a lot more besides. Not that Das Rad care and neither should you. Energetic, incisive and infused with an inquisitive, passionate spirit, Das Rad create music that goes where it needs to. Do what you can to join them on that journey.

Described in a recent review – “a pure heavenly euphoria, to put simply, astounding. Progressive music in the
truest sense of the term, transcending the oft-clichéd sobriquet ‘prog’. They walk in the footsteps of the Rock/jazz/fusion gods of the 70s but make their imprints deeper, more unshapely and longer-lasting. Ears be blown here, folks. Godlike.”
