Retrieved 8 August Initially referred to by Star Wars The Last Jedi as the "Double Quartet Formation",    referencing four drummers and four "back line" musicians, Fripp re-christened the lineup the "Three Over Five" or "Five Over Three" Formation after Rieflin's decision to play only keyboards.

Nachdem Tony Levinder unter anderem schon mit John LennonYoko Ono und Peter Wintermode 2021 gearbeitet hatte, an Bord war, nahm Fripp mit dem Gitarristen Adrian Belew Kontakt auf, der gerade mit den Talking Heads auf Tour war. Les Claypool : I'd say the band is a lot more like King Crimson -- the latter version, with Tony Levin, who's one of my big heroes [ May
Ten years later May , King Crimson started rehearsing again, this time as a "double trio" including Pat Mastelotto on drums and percussion and Trey Gunn on Stick in addition to the s line-up; it released two full albums and a handful of EPs through Fripp's own Discipline Global Mobile label.
Having regained the rights to the full King Crimson catalogue, DGM put out numerous other recordings from all periods of the band's existence, including "King Crimson Collectors' Club" bi-monthly releases available only to members of the label's website.
The next reincarnation of the band, jokingly dubbed the "double duo", omitted Bill Bruford and Tony Levin. Since then, Tony Levin rejoined the group and Trey Gunn departed.
In , with the addition of Gavin Harrison the new King Crimson began performed a 40th Anniversary Tour.

Tout Voir King Crimson. I echo x23x's comments. The live downloads for Crimson and any other bands that does the same need to be separated into another category.
They are not mainstream releases. It was Peter Sinfield who coined the name "King Crimson" which had its roots in the historical tradition of branding any bloodshed monarch as a "crimson king" but, in the case of the newly formed band, explicitly alluded to the worldwide opposition to the military involvement of the United States in Southeast Asia.
Please, please stop trashing King Crimson discography by adding dozens of download-only live recordings to the albums section!
Those downloads are not the albums, they belong to Miscellaneous section. You can't treat every live recording of the band never ever released in any physical form as an album - it just makes no sense.
Please stop the madness! Best rock band ever. With rock I mean all popular music - pop, psych, blues, prog, folk etc. Not "prog rock". Progressive, as abided by the definition.
It keeps on evolving, innovating and it does it many times you would lose track how many times they have changed - right until The Power to Believe.
Wonderful, and they aren't afraid of expressing many fields left in music. However, the Mellotron is beyond outdated and Fripp was right to ditch it for the sake of it.
Yet another band with a complete mess of a discography. Can mp3's etcetera not be kept in a misc. King Crimson is the only classic prog rock band still relevant today in my opinion!
Someone really needs to clean up the albums section, they have not released albums. Favorite Artists par NAPALMED. Favorite Artists par Plasnes. Lux Ex Umbra par doomvillain.

Discographie Discipline Global Mobile. Island , Atlantic , Polydor , E. Später geht der Song in rasante Unisono -Läufe Hörbeispiel?
Direkte Einflüsse aus der Blues -Musik sind sehr selten. Eher vom New Wave geprägt ist dann die manchmal an die Talking Heads erinnernde Musik der Alben der 80er Jahre.
Der Einfluss der Jazz -Musik ist schon dadurch gegeben, dass einige der Musiker, die im Laufe der Jahre bei King Crimson spielten, aus dem Jazz-Umfeld stammen.
So kommt der Perkussionist Jamie Muir vom Free Jazz. Adrian Belew war vor seiner Zusammenarbeit mit Fripp Gitarrist bei Frank Zappa. Der Jazz-Einfluss ist am deutlichsten in den ausgedehnten Kollektivimprovisationen der Bandbesetzung ab , besonders gut auf dem hauptsächlich live eingespielten Album Starless and Bible Black zu hören.
Hektische Bebop -Linien treffen sich mit Jazzrock , wie in One More Red Nightmare vom Album Red , und kollidieren mit Free-Jazz -Elementen.
Ein Beispiel dafür bietet Keith Tippetts Klavierspiel aus dem Mittelteil von Lizard Hörbeispiel? Zu Klavier und Bass gesellen sich schnelle Jazzläufe, die sich Saxophon und Posaune gegenseitig zuwerfen Hörbeispiel?
Die Beeinflussung durch den Jazz spiegelt sich auch in Interviews mit Fripp wider: Die von ihm am häufigsten erwähnten Musiker und Bands, wie Ornette Coleman , Charlie Parker , Miles Davis , Tony Williams , Frank Zappa , Weather Report und das Mahavishnu Orchestra , stammen aus dem Bereich des Jazz oder Jazzrock.
Der Einfluss klassischer Musik zeigt sich bei King Crimson kaum in Bearbeitungen klassischer Werke, wie sie sonst im Progressive Rock häufig sind.
Der Bezug zur Klassik ist eher durch die Verwendung von im Rock selten gebrauchten Instrumenten wie Oboe , Klarinette , Flöte , Violoncello und Viola gegeben.
Auch in Trio vom Album Starless fehlt das rocktypische Instrumentarium. Direkte stilistische Einflüsse kommen eher aus der Musik des So meinte Robert Fripp:.
In other words, what would Hendrix sound like playing Bartok? Hier ist besonders die Musik des ostasiatischen Raums und speziell die indonesische Gamelan -Musik siehe das Kapitel Rhythmische Expeditionen zu nennen.
Aber auch im melodischen Bereich sind Einflüsse aus diesen Gegenden zu hören. So erzeugt der Einsatz der pentatonischen Reihe C — D — E — G — A zusammen mit einer recht arhythmischen Gestaltung im Titel Trio auf dem Album Starless Hörbeispiel?
Ebenso kommen aber afrikanische Polyrhythmik und orientalische Tonleitern , zum Beispiel im Titel The Power to Believe II , zum Einsatz. In Lizard wird zu einem Bolero -Rhythmus vom Klavier eine von spanischer Musik inspirierte Melodie gespielt.
Auf dem Titel The Sheltering Sky vom Album Discipline spielt Bruford mit sonst für das Vibraphon verwendeten Klöppeln auf einer Schlitztrommel und verleiht dem Stück einen in Richtung Weltmusik gehenden Klang.
Besondere Spannungsmomente gewinnt die Musik der Band durch das Nebeneinander und gelegentlich auch scharfe Aufeinandertreffen von konsonanten , harmonischen und eher dissonanten Songs oder Songteilen.
Einige Titel wie Exiles , In the Court of the Crimson King , Moonchild sowie Teile von Lizard und Starless beruhen auf einfachen, reinen Dreiklängen und gängigen Akkordfolgen und Kadenzen.
So hat der Anfangsteil von Lizard Hörbeispiel? Die Ballade Moonchild stellt den Moll-Septnonakkord in den Vordergrund. Die Einleitung des Titels Vrooom auf dem Album Thrak Hörbeispiel?
In einem anderen Songteil spielen Gitarren und Saxophone eine punktierte Figur in kleinen Terzen Hörbeispiel? Im folgenden Abschnitt Hörbeispiel?
In diesen und anderen Titeln, wie der Liveversion von Groon , begibt sich die Musik der Band schon auf das Gebiet der freien Atonalität.
In Interviews betont Fripp die Bedeutung der Kenntnis und Beherrschung in der Rockmusik eher unüblicher Skalen, was in der Musik der Band auch umgesetzt wird.
Since it takes three or four years to be able to work within any one scale fluently and utterly, there is more than enough work for a lifetime.
Da es drei oder vier Jahre dauert, bis man in der Lage ist, mit einer Tonleiter flüssig und fehlerfrei zu arbeiten, gibt es mehr als genug Arbeit für ein ganzes Leben.
So beruht zum Beispiel der Titel Fracture Hörbeispiel? Die Band verfügt über einen weiten dynamischen Ausdrucksbereich, der in der Rockmusik sonst eher selten ist.
In extrem leise und sparsam instrumentierten Songs und Songteilen, wie Islands , Trio , Book of Saturday und Teilen von Lizard , wird dabei oft eine fast kammermusikalisch intime Wirkung erreicht.
So beschränkt sich der Titel Lady of the Dancing Water vom Album Lizard Hörbeispiel? In Islands werden dezente Klavierakkorde sowie Cello und leise Kornetttöne verwendet.
Der Titel Trio Hörbeispiel? Den Gegensatz dazu stellen Titel wie 21st Century Schizoid Man , Fracture und der zweite Teil von Starless dar.
Sie sind geprägt von harten Gitarrenriffs, verzerrten Gitarrensoli, wuchtigem Schlagzeugsound und teilweise exaltiertem Gesang. Diese beiden Dynamikextreme können dabei im Sinne eines Crescendo und Decrescendo ineinander übergehen oder sich abrupt gegenüberstehen.
Im Titel Starless Hörbeispiel? Dabei wird immer wieder, fast schon monoton, eine Note repetiert. Nach harten E-Gitarren-Riffs kommt ein plötzlicher Schnitt, einige leise Beckenschläge leiten in Gesang über, der nur von wenigen auf einer unverzerrten Jazz-Gitarre gezupften Tönen begleitet wird.
Speziell in den er und er Jahren befassen sich Fripp und seine Mitstreiter in ihren Titeln intensiv mit der Überlagerung verschiedener Metren und Rhythmen Polymetrik und Polyrhythmik.
Das wird oft dadurch erreicht, dass Fripp und Belew verschiedene, manchmal an Minimal Music und Gamelan-Musik erinnernde Muster gegeneinander setzen.
So spielt im Titel Neal and Jack and Me vom Album Beat Hörbeispiel? Nach demselben Prinzip wechseln im Titel Frame by Frame auf der LP Discipline Hörbeispiel?
Wechselnde Taktarten während des Songs sind, wie auch bei anderen Bands des Progressive Rock, ebenfalls üblich. Von Beginn an haben sich Fripp und seine Mitstreiter mit Klangexperimenten und der Erforschung und Erweiterung der klanglichen Möglichkeiten ihrer jeweiligen Instrumente beschäftigt.
So sind schon auf dem ersten Album In the Court of the Crimson King Klangcollagen , wie sie seit dem Album Sgt. Im Schlussteil von In the Court of the Crimson King ertönt sogar eine Truhenorgel.
Der Titel Moonchild geht nach zweieinhalb Minuten in ein improvisiertes psychedelisches Klang-Gemälde über. Sinfield arbeitete in den frühen er Jahren mit einem VCS3 - Synthesizer.
In Lizard wird eine Gitarre rückwärts abgespielt. Zusammen mit Brian Eno entwickelte Fripp dann eine als Frippertronics bezeichnete Methode zur Klangerzeugung, mittels der die Tonband-Experimente von Steve Reich modifiziert wurden.
Zur Erzeugung von Frippertronics werden zwei Tonbandgeräte Revox A77 benutzt: Das erste Gerät zeichnet das von der Gitarre stammende Eingangssignal auf.
Das Tonband durchläuft dann das zweite Gerät, von wo aus das Signal wiedergegeben und dem Eingangssignal im ersten Bandgerät beigemischt wird.
Ein gutes Beispiel für die Frippertronics ist der Anfang des Titels Requiem vom Album Beat. Ab ersetzte Fripp die mechanische Loop-Technik der Frippertronics durch den Einsatz von Gitarren-Synthesizern und nannte die so erzeugten Klänge in Anlehnung an Murray Schafer Soundscapes.
Recording Beat was faced with tension with Belew suffering high stress levels over his duties as front man, lead singer, and principal songwriter.
On one occasion, he clashed with Fripp and ordered him out of the studio. Around this time the band released the VHS-only '"The Noise: Live in Frejus" DGMVC2 , a record of a show played at the Arena, Frejus , France on 27 August This video is now on DVD as part of the compilation Neal and Jack and Me.
King Crimson's next album, Three of a Perfect Pair , was recorded in and released in March Having encountered difficulty in both writing and determining a direction for the album, the band chose to record and sequence it as a "left side" — four of the band's poppier songs plus an instrumental — and a "right side" experimental work including extended and atonal improvisations in the tradition of the mids band, plus as the third part of "Larks' Tongues in Aspic".
Three of a Perfect Pair peaked at No. The remaster of the album included "the other side", a collection of remixes and improvisation out-takes plus Levin's tongue-in-cheek vocal piece, "The King Crimson Barbershop".
The last concert of the Three of a Perfect Pair tour, at the Spectrum in Montreal, Canada on 11 July , was recorded and released in as Absent Lovers: Live in Montreal.
Following the tour, Fripp dissolved King Crimson for the second time, having become dissatisfied with its working methods.
Bruford and Belew expressed some frustration over this; Belew recalled the first he had heard of the split was when he read about it in a report in Musician magazine.
Despite these circumstances, the musicians remained on fairly amicable terms. Belew would later refer to the band "taking a break" that ultimately lasted for ten years.
In the early s, Belew met with Fripp in England with an interest in a reformed King Crimson. Two years later, in , Fripp established the Discipline Global Mobile DGM record label with producer David Singleton : this would subsequently be the main home for Fripp's work, with main album releases distributed to larger record companies, affording Fripp and his associates greater freedom and more control over their work.
Fripp explained the six-member formation was to be a "Double Trio" with two guitarists, two bassists, and two drummers, to explore a different style of music.
Bruford later said he lobbied his own way into the band, believing that King Crimson was very much "his gig", and that Fripp had come up with the philosophical explanation later.
One of the conditions Fripp had imposed on Bruford regarding his return was to give up all creative control to Fripp. Following rehearsals in Woodstock, New York , the group released the extended play Vrooom in October This revealed the new King Crimson sound, which featured elements of the interlocking guitars on Discipline and the heavy rock feel of Red ,  but also involved a greater use of ambient electronic sound and ideas from industrial music.
In contrast, many of the actual songs — mostly written or finalised by Belew — displayed stronger elements of s pop than before — in particular, a Beatles influence although Bruford would also refer to the band as sounding like "a dissonant Shadows on steroids" .
As with previous line-ups, new technology was used including MIDI and the Warr tap guitar with which Gunn replaced the Stick. King Crimson toured the album from 28 September in Buenos Aires , Argentina ; following concerts were released on the double live B'Boom: Live in Argentina in In October and December , King Crimson recorded their eleventh studio album, Thrak.
Formed of revised versions of most of the tracks on Vrooom , plus new tracks, the album was described by Q magazine as having "jazz-scented rock structures, characterised by noisy, angular, exquisite guitar interplay" and an "athletic, ever-inventive rhythm section,"  while being in tune with the sound of alternative rock of the mids.
King Crimson resumed touring in and ; dates from October and November were recorded and released on the live album Thrakattak in May , which is an hour of improvised music including section from performances of "THRAK" and arranged by Fripp's DGM partner David Singleton.
When fresh writing rehearsals began in mid in Nashville, Tennessee , Fripp was dissatisfied with the quality of the new music being developed by the band; developing friction and disagreements between himself and Bruford led to the latter deciding to leave King Crimson.
Instead, the six members including Bruford opted to work in four smaller groups or "fraKctalisations", according to Fripp known as the ProjeKcts.
This enabled the group to continue developing musical ideas and searching for Crimson's next direction without the practical difficulty and expense of convening all six members at once.
In and , the first four ProjeKcts played live in the US, Japan, and the UK and released recordings that showed a high degree of free improvisation.
Considine as "frequently astonishing" but lacking in melody, and perhaps too difficult for a casual listener.
At the end of the four ProjeKct runs, Bruford left King Crimson altogether to resume his work in jazz. At the same time, Levin's commitments as a session and touring musician forced him to take an indefinite break from the band.
The remaining members Fripp, Belew, Gunn and Mastelotto reconvened as a "Double Duo" to write and record The Construkction of Light  in Belew's basement and garage near Nashville.
Released in May , the album reached No. All of the pieces were metallic, harsh and industrial in sound. With the exception of a parodic industrial blues sung by Belew through a voice changer under the pseudonym of "Hooter J.
Johnson" , the songs were unrelentingly complex and challenging to the listener, with plenty of rhythmic displacement to add to the harsh textures.
The album contains the fourth instalment of "Larks' Tongues in Aspic". It received a negative reception for lacking new ideas.
King Crimson toured to support both albums, including double bill shows with Tool. The tour was documented in the triple live album Heavy Construkction , released in December This showed the band constantly switching between the structured album pieces and ferocious ProjeKct-style Soundscape-and-percussion improvisations.
On 9 November , King Crimson released a limited edition live extended play called Level Five ,  featuring three new pieces: Previously unrecorded new tracks "Dangerous Curves", "Level Five" title track and "Virtuous Circle", plus versions of "The Construkction of Light" and ProjeKct Two's "Deception of the Thrush" followed by the unlisted track "ProjeKct 12th and X" after one silent minute.
Half of the tracks were brief processed vocal snippets sung by Belew, and the songs themselves varied between gamelan pop, Soundscapes, and slightly parodic takes on heavy metal and blues.
King Crimson released their thirteenth album, The Power to Believe , in October The Power to Believe reached No.
King Crimson toured in to support the album; recordings from it were used for the live album EleKtrik: Live in Japan. In November , Gunn left the group to pursue solo projects and was replaced by the returning Tony Levin.
The band reconvened in early for rehearsals, but nothing developed from the sessions. At this point, Fripp was publicly reassessing his desire to work with King Crimson and within the music industry, often citing the unsympathetic aspects of the life of a touring musician.
Despite this, a new King Crimson formation was announced in  Fripp, Belew, Levin, Mastelotto, and a new second drummer, Gavin Harrison ,   the first new member from the UK since In August , after a period of rehearsals,  the five completed the band's 40th Anniversary Tour.
Additional shows were planned for , but were cancelled due to scheduling clashes. King Crimson began another hiatus after the 40th Anniversary Tour.
Among Belew's suggestions was a temporary reunion of the s line-up for a thirtieth anniversary tour: an idea declined by both Fripp and Bruford, the latter commenting "I would be highly unlikely to try to recreate the same thing, a mission I fear destined to failure.
In , a band called Jakszyk, Fripp and Collins and subtitled "A King Crimson ProjeKct" released an album called A Scarcity of Miracles. At one point, Fripp referred to the band as "P7".
For a while, King Crimson fans debated whether this was a new line-up of the main band under another name, but the project did not tour or release another album.
In August , Fripp announced his retirement from the music industry, leaving the future of King Crimson uncertain. In September , Fripp suddenly and unexpectedly announced King Crimson's return to activity with a "very different reformation to what has gone before: seven players, four English and three American, with three drummers".
Time for a pointed stick. Adrian Belew was not asked to take part, thus ending his year tenure in King Crimson: Jakszyk took his place as singer and second guitarist.
In early , King Crimson had no plans to record in the studio, instead playing "reconfigured" versions of past material  For the first time since , the band's repertoire included songs from the run of albums between In The Court of the Crimson King and Larks' Tongues in Aspic , as well as including instrumentals from THRAK and The Power to Believe although Adrian Belew's songs were conspicuously absent.
After rehearsing in England,   they toured North America from 9 September across 20 dates. Tours across Europe, Canada, and Japan followed  in the later half of A live recording from the Canadian leg of the tour was released as Live In Toronto.
A European tour was planned for Following Rieflin's decision to take a break from music  after the three dates of March, April and June in Salisbury, drummer Jeremy Stacey of Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds was called in place for dates from September, building-up the now so-called SOND line-up.
On 7 December , founding King Crimson member Greg Lake died of cancer. On 3 January , Robert Fripp announced Bill Rieflin's return to King Crimson.
Consequently, King Crimson became an octet. Initially referred to by Fripp as the "Double Quartet Formation",    referencing four drummers and four "back line" musicians, Fripp re-christened the lineup the "Three Over Five" or "Five Over Three" Formation after Rieflin's decision to play only keyboards.
On 31 January , another former King Crimson member, John Wetton , died of colon cancer. On 27 April , King Crimson announced a new live EP named "Heroes" after the David Bowie song, as a tribute to both the artist and the album featuring the song in question both of which featured distinctive Robert Fripp guitar contributions throughout.
On 3 September , Robert Fripp announced that his differences with Adrian Belew had been resolved and that Belew was now King Crimson's "Ninth Man Inactive"; meaning that there were "no current plans for him to come out with the current formation; but he has rejoined the larger family — hooray!
It leaves the door open for Crimson to evolve as necessary. On 13 October , it was announced that Bill Rieflin would be unable to join the Three Over Five Formation on the Autumn tour in the U.
He was temporarily replaced by Seattle-based Crafty Guitarist Chris Gibson. During , King Crimson performed the extensive date Uncertain Times tour through the UK and Europe between 13 June and 16 November, visiting Poland, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Italy, the UK and France.
On 6 April , it was announced at a press conference that Rieflin would take another break from King Crimson to attend to family matters, and that his place on keyboards for the 50th anniversary tour would be taken by Theo Travis , better known as a jazz saxophonist, Soft Machine member and occasional duo collaborator with Robert Fripp.
On March 24 , it was announced that Bill Rieflin had died with cancer being cited as the cause of death , reducing King Crimson to a septet.
Since the early s, several bands containing former, recent or current King Crimson members have toured and recorded, performing King Crimson music.
Active between and , the 21st Century Schizoid Band reunited several former King Crimson members who had played on the band's first four albums.
The band engaged in several tours, played material from the band's s and s catalogue, and recorded several live albums. Since , Tony Levin has led the trio Stick Men , which also features Pat Mastelotto the band was initially completed by Chapman Stick player Michael Bernier, replaced in by touch guitarist and former Fripp student Markus Reuter.
This band includes and interprets King Crimson compositions from the band's entire career in their live sets. Reuter and Mastelotto also play together as a duo originally called Tuner , for which they have been known to rework the mids King Crimson instrumental "Industry" live.
Between and , Stick Men and Adrian Belew's Power Trio band Belew plus drummer Tobias Ralph and bass player Julie Slick joined forces to play and tour as The Crimson ProjeKCt , covering the music made during Belew's tenure as King Crimson frontman and principal songwriter.
The two groups still in perform together from time to time, usually under names like "Belew, Levin, Mastelotto and friends" or "Tony Levin and friends".
During his solo career including performance with the Power Trio , Adrian Belew has performed versions of certain King Crimson songs written predominantly by himself, such as "Dinosaur," as well as ensemble pieces like "Frame by Frame" and "Neurotica,".
Post-Crimson, he has also performed live versions of King Crimson songs which he neither wrote nor performed on when originally recorded in particular when he has played with Eddie Jobson , such as "Red" or "Larks' Tongues In Aspic, Pt.
King Crimson have been described musically as progressive rock ,  art rock ,  and post-progressive ,  with their earlier works being described as proto-prog.
The band played Donovan 's "Get Thy Bearings" in concert,  and were known to play the Beatles ' " Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds " in their rehearsals.
The reunion of the band brought in even more elements, displaying the influence of gamelan music  and of late 20th century classical composers such as Philip Glass ,  Steve Reich ,  and Terry Riley.
Several King Crimson compositional approaches have remained constant from the earliest versions of the band to the present.
These include:. King Crimson have incorporated improvisation into their performances and studio recordings from the beginning, some of which has been embedded into loosely composed pieces such as " Moonchild " or "THRAK".
The earliest example of King Crimson unambiguously improvising is the spacious, oft-criticised extended coda of "Moonchild" from In the Court of the Crimson King.
Rather than using the standard jazz or blues "jamming" format for improvisation in which one soloist at a time takes centre stage while the rest of the band lies back and plays along with established rhythm and chord changes , King Crimson improvisation is a group affair in which each member of the band is able to make creative decisions and contributions as the music is being played.
A slightly similar method of continuous improvisation "everybody solos and nobody solos" was initially used by King Crimson's jazz-fusion contemporaries Weather Report.
Fripp has used the metaphor of "white magic" to describe this process, in particular when the method works particularly well.
Similarly, King Crimson's improvised music is rarely jazz or blues-based, and varies so much in sound that the band has been able to release several albums consisting entirely of improvised music, such as the THRaKaTTaK album.
Occasionally, particular improvised pieces will be recalled and reworked in different forms at different shows, becoming more and more refined and eventually appearing on official studio releases the most recent example being "Power to Believe III", which originally existed as the stage improvisation "Deception of the Thrush", a piece played on stage for a long time before appearing on record.
King Crimson have been influential both on the early s progressive rock movement and numerous contemporary artists.
Canadian rock band Rush cites King Crimson as a strong early influence on their sound; drummer Neil Peart credited the adventurous and innovative style of Michael Giles on his own approach to percussion.
King Crimson's influence extends to many bands from diverse genres, especially of the s and s. Tool are known to be heavily influenced by King Crimson,     with vocalist Maynard James Keenan joking on a tour with them: "Now you know who we ripped off.
Just don't tell anyone, especially the members of King Crimson. King Crimson have frequently been cited as pioneers of progressive metal   and as an influence on bands of this genre, including Opeth ,  Mastodon ,   Between the Buried and Me ,   Leprous ,   Haken ,  the Ocean ,  Caligula's Horse ,  Last Chance to Reason ,  and Indukti.
Heavy experimental and avant-garde acts like the Dillinger Escape Plan ,  Neurosis ,  Zeni Geva ,  Ancestors ,  and Oranssi Pazuzu  all cite King Crimson's influence.
Other artists affected by King Crimson include noise music artist Masami Akita of Merzbow ,  jazz guitarist Dennis Rea of Land ,  folktronica exponent Juana Molina ,  hip hop producer RJD2 ,  hip hop and soul composer Adrian Younge ,  film director Hal Hartley ,  and folk-pop singer Ian Kelly.
