From that point on is almost a free-jazz primed, a solo piano and keyboards throughout, and then still have the guitar soloing too, in a tone almost clean, actually two guitars. As striking as Bartoccetti's guitar playing is on this album, the album truly belongs to Doris Norton's endless variety of darkly classical piano, trippy Moog workouts and spacey synth effects playing all over the top of her dominating organ playing. The Gnome Spacial, synthesizers like the wind, a drum almost 'dance' laughs and a bass line pretty cool. But for the rest my blood not flowing in my veins more smoothly after a careful listening to 'Zora'! Fans of the earlier Jacula albums and doomy atmospheric gothic music will be right at home with this one. It will leave you completely altered, and you will never forget it. At times the guitars are really in your face, but at others it is the orchestration.
At the end the voice became active in their opening melody full of effects. If the band had tried for a more industrial hard dance sound, perhaps like the early Nine Inch Nails releases, this would have allowed them to retain their dark horror with a more contemporary and modern sound. It really is an incredible piece of work that will be unsettling for some, as this is not the sort of prog that you would take home to play for your mum. This exceedingly unpleasant piece is fascinating and quite original, very surreal, and gives this section of the album a breathless and predatory tone. You can also share antonius rex or any other file with the community. Each of their albums stand as an original and unique statement, and I'm constantly drawn to the moody soundscapes and gloomy ambience of their work.
The band adds some pretty questionable vocals to this piece--timid and off key--but since the cut feels a bit like Halloween for the bambinos, the singing comes off as charming rather than inept. Long instrumental spectral organ parts are the main ingredient of this album, that has in the suggestive U. I'm all for an artist trying something different, but to put out a dance track with all the moronic and inane top 40 dance pop stylings and cliches that makes that sort of music such garbage is too much to defend. After some passionate Italian sung vocals from Bartoccetti, we're back to more strange disco percussion with some quirky and very insane guitar melodies. Antonio delivers some appropriately murky bass that slithers around the background here as well. Fully instrumental, it's a very striking opening and it grabs your attention straight away.
The theme is unclear how the rest of the album, with accessible melodies, but always fallen for the melancholy or dark theme. Were it not for the incredibly charming opener, The Gnome, I'm not sure that I would have stuck it out, but that tune is like a kiddy version of something Goblin might do and I adore Goblin , with happy creepy synth melodies woven atop driving rhythms. The music is dark and full of magic, accompanied by images of crosses, chapels and gothic cathedrals shot from various perspectives, though there are also some real video clips. An album full of dark atmospheres, mainly based on guitar and church organ and with no drums, it has recently been reissued by Black Widow. After this short introduction, the keyboard is in charge, many syncopations with strategic stops and relied on a guitar too.
It's a strange one indeed, showcasing the disco-drumming technique of Mr. On it's own it's a perfectly successful horror themed prog album with decent playing, gloomy atmospheres and haunting dark melodies. But Bartoccetti himself is not fading away, in fact he's in peak form, his guitar playing filled with so much renewed and fiery purpose, and he hasn't sounded this good in years. Were it not for the incredibly charming opener, The Gnome, I'm not sure that I would have stuck it out, but that tune is like a kiddy version of something Goblin might do and I adore Goblin , with happy creepy. Vile taunting voices call from the distance throughout the piece, with a spitting and biting quality that gives them a highly sinister and threatening tone.
M' from the second Jacula album. Anyone who likes Italian prog albums would enjoy this simple but effective piece very much. The keyboards are organs like, which are perfect pro climate they needed. The medium Franz Parthenzy is also listed in the line-up along with the three official members Antonio Bartoccetti, Fiamma Dallo Spirito and Charles Tiring. This album really sounds as below average. While not in the same league as Jacula, and a step down from the first Rex album, Zora still has plenty of nice moments which will please the fans of these eccentric artists.
The album was planned for release on drummer Albert Goodman's Darkness label, but it never went over a promo issue. Two of those, the title one and Are Mine, widely deploy heavy guitar riffs, stylistically suggesting a kind of symphonic Doom Metal-meets-doomy symphonic Art-Rock with bits of classical here and there mainly courtesy of organ , the latter beginning and finishing as an interplay between organ and acoustic guitar. In between they released a serie of studio-albums, Ralefun from 1979 is considered as their best from that era. The melodies tend toward the less dark and even romantic in places, pushing things toward the new-age side in places, but otherwise the music is as enjoyable as that on the best tracks, described first. Each of them finds a groove early on, and builds intensity and variation throughout, using bass, drums and keyboards as the primary foundation, then overlaying with guitar, additional keyboards above all Mini-Moog and Hammond , and a string ensemble on some occasions. You'll get the cool bonus track and a generous booklet of typical Rex strangeness, the highlight of which are a few photos of the strikingly beautiful Doris Norton yes, I have a little crush on her. At least they would have kept even the barest shred of dignity and credibility.
All the players get some very subtle and effective moments on this track. The second tune Necromancer is acceptable lounge music, but it is the third cut that will probably eject most listeners. Anytime I can hear Doris' defiant siren song over that gothic church organ I am on board. When you search for files video, music, software, documents etc , you will always find high-quality antonius rex files recently uploaded on DownloadJoy or other most popular shared hosts. The other six tracks are basically slow-paced, deploying no heavy guitar riffs at all, albeit four of them, Suicide Goth, Disincantation, Witches and Demonic Hysteria, are still diverse pieces of music, interesting throughout, the former three featuring some really strong art-rock arrangements, ones driven by acoustic guitar and piano in particular. Instead it has beautiful melodic electric guitar solos, spacey keyboards, very pleasant vocals and ferocious flute playing! Truly a dark piece that makes you feel like you're losing your mind.
It's a strange one indeed, showcasing the disco-drumming technique of Mr. This ambitious concept piece detailing a woman tormented and possessed by demons is simply the most grandly and proudly symphonic, varied, sophisticated musical statement of their modern works, and perhaps one of the defining Bartoccetti works to date. The melody that follows is pretty, guitar a fingering, the keyboard always present, and an interesting bass line. Zora This time we have a 'conventional' progressive with different time, elaborate melodies, and lots of crashing. After the introduction of an almost typical Italian voice, those melodic and beautiful.
