Rational Diet biography The following is taken from the press release about the band from their label AltrOck: " Rational Diet, the group existing since the late 90-s in Belarus proposes an unusual mix of styles and sounds: Chamber music, rock, theatre and improvisation, supported by the amazingly instrumental abilities of their components. It's difficult to define the mood of such music, which goes from dark atmosphere to grotesque, powerful or oniric, sometimes even humoristic.

Relocating to Minsk, Rational Diet underwent a number of personnel changes, the group's membership now including students of the Minsk Conservatory of Music. With instrumentation including violin, cello, reeds, accordion, and guitar - and momentarily no bass or drums - the group recorded the 2003 album The Shameless, including compositions by Appow and violinist Kirill Krystia, additional musical accompaniment to texts by Soviet-era avant-gardists, and chant-singing - later described by the band as "pseudo-folk" - by guest vocalist Maria Lagodich. The music of Rational Diet.

For certain RIO aficionados, the saving grace is that Rational Diet remains an instrumental album most of the time. Those with a hankering for often dark and complex modern chamber rock played with rhythmic drive and even urgency should find a lot to enjoy here.

In 2007 this Belarusian ensemble released their s/t album through Altr0ck and it was one of my favourites of that year and a great album overall. Their quirky style, inspired by classical composers such as Stravinsky and Ives to experimental and progressive rock groups such as Univers Zero has won me over and I was highly anticipating their next effort.

In 2007, AltrOck released the group's eponymous debut album for the label; the album featured tracks from both From the Grey Notebook and The Shameless. AltrOck continued its support for Rational Diet by issuing the 2008 album At Work. Recorded over four months in 2007 by a septet lineup featuring Appow (bassoon, saxophone), Velvetov (guitar), Krystia (violin), Maslovsky (bass), and Semitko (drums), as well as new members Olga Podgaiskaja (keyboards, vocals).
