Cheval de Frise - Fresques Sur Les Parois Secrètes Du Crâne (2003)

 French acoustic Math-rock

With a Two piece, Cheval de Frise gain a greater ability to compose tighter and faster compositions. While seeming at times to be improv based, this is anything but. Time signatures are changed on a dime with almost razor precision. Thomas Bonvalet's acoustic guitar playing is highly influenced by a flamenco style.  It is a very unique take on what can at times be a genre filled with copy cats. If this doesn't sound incredibly melodic from my description you are very wrong. One of my all time favorites.
