Armonite is a very interesting nineties Italian group. They have a really unique approach because there are two electric violinists in the line-up. There are not any guitars; the violins create the melodies that are left from the absence of guitars. This makes their music much more original than the music of an average progressive group. Due to the unusual line-up their music is light melodic progressive but it's still very energetic nevertheless. The violins are really great and you don't miss the missing guitar at all. The keyboardist plays mostly electric piano (some really beautiful piano melodies) and it suits the overall sound really nicely and makes the music even more melodic. He also provides some flute solos. This album is so not for people who don't like light melodic progressive with classical influences. Despite the light, not so complex sound, the music can be regarded truly progressive and original. Unfortunately, the band split up right after the release of this debut album.

All tracks in this only album are highly melodic and good. The best tracks are "Amebah", "Eos Aurora" and "Agora", all with very beautiful melodies. I find the music very relaxing and delicate. This is great progressive, more classical than rock. Splendid.

Conclusion: Fantastic melodic progressive.
