“Calling the music of October Equus 'avant-garde' is pretty accurate, as they use a variety of instruments such as guitar, keyboards, sax, drums, bass, flute, and violin to create eerie soundscapes, thunderous passages of complete dissonance, and deadly mixes of almost free form jazz and chamber rock. It's atmospheric at times, gloomy, chaotic, dissonant, complex, and oddly enough, melodic in spots. If you are a fan of more song based, vocal oriented prog rock however, you might get frightened off by the bands dark instrumental style, which certainly won't be for everyone. Those who do appreciate a more avant-garde approach, and especially fans of RIO styled prog, will fall in love with what is on display here. Much of the music on Saturnal is constantly shifting and pulsating, going from tranquil to bombastic at the drop of a hat, with guitars, an array of keyboards (including Mellotron), sax, flute, and violin, all battling for supremacy, yet sounding cohesive at the same time. ”
