This bumper live double CD marks 15 years of Serbian band EYOT's existence recorded in many locations given the band's globetrotting profile spanning gigs in Japan, France, Italy, Russia, the USA, Serbia, Bulgaria, Germany, Romania, Switzerland, and North Macedonia. Combining jazz-rock with classical influences and Eastern European folk the band have always sounded pretty prog to me and so you sometimes get a grandiose swagger, lots of anthemic tunes and a lorry load of fat riffs and chunky chords thrown in as standard. But there is also an intimate side and some great tunes by the band's pianist Dejan Ilijic - Dejan is joined by guitarist Sladjan Milenovic, bass guitarist Marko Stojiljkovic and drummer Milos Vojvodic. 'How Shall the Dust Storm Start?' from the album is streaming - full release date is 23 February
