In November 1998 Denis Arsenin (Bass), Edgar Kempish (drums) and Alexey Syomin (guitar) played their first joint rehearsal, leading to the formation of the Latvian band OLIVE MESS. The group named themselves in honour of the French 20th century composer Olivie Messian. For two years the band remained a three piece. Regularly performing at the music club called "Saxophone", where they would play covers of King Crimson along with many of their own compositions. In March 2001 the group released their first recording "Live without Audience" which pretty much acted as a demo.

With the track "1572 (part II)" we start to see the group's interest in Medieval French history. With the compositional basis formed around "St. Bartholomew's day Massacre" occurring on August 23, 1572. Later in 2001, the remaining members joined the group; including Ilze Paegle (classical trained soprano singer), Lilija Voronova (keyboards) and Sergey Syomin (Archlute, Baroque guitar). Now a full band the group prepared to start recording for their album "Gramercy" under the French label Soleil Zeuhl.

The album consists of 5 long compositions. OLIVE MESS encompasses many elements in to their music; shifting between traditional medieval folk music and passages of complex avant-garde which hint strongly towards their King Crimson and Univers Zero influences. The album consists of 5 long compositions with Lyrics mainly focus on historical events in medieval France. Well worth the investigation for those looking for something adventurous and highly original. Read more on Last.fm.
