ABRAXAS-99 / gold disc/ (full info)
Trzecia plyta studyjna, zdradzajaca duzy wplyw na muzykow wspólczesnych grup progresywnych jak MARILLION, ARENA.
Remastered rerelease of the third album of neoprogressive, legendary Polish group, from Bydgoszcz featuring stars of that style like MARILLION, PENDRAGON, ARENA. It has has change of beeing one of the best progr. Cds recorded in Poland. Great album for all progressive fans.
Abraxas returned with their final album in 1999 and named it 99. And that is all I know about them. This and that they have split up and are legends in the Polish prog scene.
A crispy clean sound with some hints of the 1980s, a very good vocalist a lot of Dream Theater chugging guitars and a lot of synths. That's the Polish sound from that time. A recipe other bands followed too and Poland got their own neo-prog sound. A very smart sound. Abraxas has added some female vocals to their sound too.
The songs here are good. Good and that's it really it. The songs is cleverly put together and this album is really faultless. Faultless and pretty dull. This album is lacking teeth and some really great songs. Fifty-three minutes comes and goes. I let this album run the required spins and I am still not taken by it. But I find nothing that offends me either so the character is given.
If you're into Polish Prog (Nemen, SBB, EXODUS) and Neo-Prog (the legendary COLLAGE, QUIDAM, MILLENUIM, MOONRISE), this maybe just what you've been looking for. Both recording quality and musicianship are good, tracks are well-written, the concept story behind them keeps you attentive, so why miss this release? A good one for genre's fans, recommended
