3 stars US based project THE ANABASIS was instigated by multi-instrumentalist and composer Barry Thompson in 2009, and what was to become their debut album "Back from Being Gone" was developed alongside lyricist George Andrade from 2009 and onwards. Ryo Okumoto and Per Fredrik Aasly also got involved in the project, and with a host of guest musicians participating their initial CD eventually saw the light of day in the fall of 2011, released by the US label 10t Records.

Debut albums by artists meriting a talented description have become a rather common experience for me, and The Anabasis is another addition to that list. Accessible, pleasant music that will find some favor among a vast audience I assume, and with their dedication to majestic, sophisticated heavy art rock and epic length compositions I'd suspect that they'll soon enough have a small crowd of dedicated fans that have longed for a band exploring just this particular part of the art rock universe. A disc well worth checking out if the above description intrigues you.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
