Theatrical progrock, heavily influenced by King Crimson ..., February 10, 2003
There are anyway very interesting and quite original symphonic passages too, within this debut album dated 1979 ... besides some interesting guitar lines and a couple of keyboards as well complete the music harmony !! Of course there is also some stuff here reminding me of Ange, but without the mellow sound of such classic prog french ensemble.The dissonances are bearable, however being far away from the brainstorm regarding some Zehul music;while it is sure,coming back to this debut album by Arachnoid,it's one of the most adventurous of the late 70's prog scene,showing the existence of european bands inspired by King Crimson, whose music efforts are not merely derivative !!
Nevertheless before this one buy the l.p."Symphony" by Clearlight; some stuff
by Magma (the less difficult albums to bear);"Eros" by Dun(by using your
patience!!), Pulsar's "Strands of the future" and "Halloween", plus some
stuff from Univer Zero; I like to add also the interesting l.p. "Picture",
by the swiss band Island;this album is not merely derivative and, despite
of this latter maintaining all the 70's prog references -even though without
keyboards and as referred to V.D.G.G and ELP - is always vivid...!!)
