3 stars This is the review of the re-release on Black Widow from last/this year. The seven minutes long Proxima Luna (second to last song) is the only change from the original album, to my knowledge. A song that does not make this album any better.

I am not familiar with neither Jacula or this artist so this is my first foray into Antonius world. A foray that starts with some really pleasant RPI. Or to be more precise; the first four songs are middle of the road RPI with the usual 1970s sound. This album was recorded in the 1970s so no wonder. There are some space rock too infused into the very comfortable RPI sound. Banco and PFM springs to mind. The vocals are pretty weak though. But the flute, guitars and tangents disguise the weak vocals. I am pleased.

The album takes a nosedive from there on and to the end. In my case; that's twenty minutes of dissonant noodling with some voices and chants inbetween. If this is satanic chants, I really feel sorry for the devil. The quality is really poor.

In other words; this album is a game of two halves. The end result is not that impressive, but this is still a good album which has not turned me into a fan of Antonius Rex.
