Nyl is also the name of a French band that released one album in 1976 on Urus records, the label founded by Richard Pinhas of Heldon. The french band be described as psychedelic rock with a blend of jazzy progressive rock and a touch of Zeuhl, though it’s really not very Magma influenced despite the presence of Jannick Top on bass on some tracks. The album does have some tasty bass rifs and is an under-rated gem that’s not quite prog enough to rate well in those circles and is a bit too late and proggy to be classed purely as a psych band. Comparisons have been made to Cos, and perhaps Gong.

    Right you are about the Russian group. Surprisingly their music is quite good, a bit sappy sometimes but I can get over it. Plain' This Game and Alone are their best songs IMHO.

    Well, besides the Germans and the Russians was also a French band playing what I would call psychedelic rock with a zeuhl touch.

    Besides the Germans there were also the Russian band NYL bring to us a very complex mixture of several styles of prog music in a neo- symphonic prog packing on their one and only '02 s/t debut album.
