Has anyone ever heard of them? I just heard them the other day and they're amazing.

Yeah, I found out about them from here but I didn't actually hear them until a friend of mine gave me some of their songs, and yes they rule. Listen to Grace, that is one of the best songs ever written imo. Also check out Refletions, I'll give you some more to check out later.

Own both their albums, they're terrific; especially the tracks Jarzombek and Myung guest in. "Dancing Rivers" is the highlight of their catalog.

yep heard of them, read up on them, but don't have anything by them - I remember listening to Cynic and getting chills listening to some of the bass melodies and arrangements. I'd definitely like to get hold of some of this stuff.

I love Gordian Knot, great band. It's like Cynic combined with prog rock greats (Levin, Bruford, Myung, etc.).

I found out about this band yesterday and it's really amazing. Didn't knew it was from cynic's bassist. Cool!

Yeah, I've heard their first album after a friend of mine showed me them.. Pretty epic. I did a review too :) One of those awesome supergroups noone hears about like Liquid Tension Experiment

the song grace is stellar off of Gordian Knot, the 1998 album.
you might want to check out Aeon Spoke.
guys from Cynic.

Checked them out due to the Cynic connection but was pleasantly surprised.
I've only listened to Emergent, though that seems to have disappeared off of my computer *confused*

I am a big fan of Gordian Knot. I was trying real hard to find a good fusion between Heavy Metal and Jazz, and I found it. Many rock bands do incorporate Jazz in their songs but not in a fusion like Gordian Knot and Joe Satriani. I imagine it being real hard work, especially for Bass players, to come up with a complex-jazzy song structure while still making the sound heavy.

Sean Malone is a fantastic bassist, who has awesome technical ability but also writes very tasteful music, but doesn't get the credit he should.

Gordian Knot is one of my favourite bands and definitely the one with which I can identify the most in terms of style... Rivers Dancing is a goddamned masterpiece.

Recently I found a bunch of mentions in sites such as last.fm of what's supposed to be albums by them, such as "A Mid Summer Knot's Dream" or "Jenny Adair" but which are clearly fake.. why would anyone do that? Has Knot even done anything since 2003, or did they disband?

Gordian Knot kicks insane amounts of ass. They're ridiculous.

Does anyone else like the original version of Grace is better than the newer one. Apart from that Emergent kicks s/t's ass.

The version of "Grace" off Emergent is actually a live track. Both the live track and the original kick ass.

I prefer the live track, personally.

I had a feeling, but there's just something missing from it that the other version has.

Yeah, the original has that awesome strings ending. I don't think the live version has it.

I usually prefer studio recordings over live ones. They take their time to nail everything, and there's the goodies of post-production. One exception: Joe Satriani. :)

*sigh*... I miss the Knot :/
