Burning Shed:
"The debut release from Texan trio Herd Of Instinct sees a band pushing the limits of its own creativity.

Drawing from a vast array of influences (Tribal music, Horror film scores and assorted elements of Rock, Minimalism, Crimson-esque Prog, and more), the album features guest performances from the likes of Jerry Marotta, Pat Mastelotto, Gayle Ellett, Gavin Harrison, and Markus Reuter.

From the schizoid-frenzy of Anamnesis to the fragile beauty of Blood Sky, the album never loses sight of its desire to thrill and surprise."

The Lasers Edge:
"Herd Of Instinct is the first release on Djam Karet's own Firepool Records imprint. Originally known as Mirror People, this band features members of 99 Names For God as well as some high profile guests like Gavin Harrison, Pat Mastelotto, Gayle Ellett, and Markus Reuter. Its all instrumental and is clearly inspired by Gordian Knot and King Crimson. Mark Cook is a virtuoso on Warr guitar and he does stuff with it that is simply jaw dropping. Hopefully these guys will get to gig at a festival near you. This is the good stuff."
