Jargon biography
Born in Athens, Greece in 1981, JARGON took his first piano lessons when he was seven, conceiving his first melodies at 12. He was influenced by classic and progressive rock of the 70's. RADIOHEAD's ''OK Computer'' led him to discover more contemporary music, including alternative rock, electronic music, black metal. Artists who made a greater impact on him (among others) are PETER HAMMILL, GENESIS, RADIOHEAD, NEVERMORE, IAMX, LENA PLATONOS, SERGEI PROKOFIEV.

At age 19 he put his first band together, AFTERGLOW, which was to be renamed as VERBAL DELIRIUM, with the first concrete line up shaping somewhere in 2006 when they recorded their first demo (for a full biography of VERBAL DELIRIUM see here. As of 2020, VERBAL DELIRIUM are composing material for their fourth album.

In 2018 Jargon decides to record his first solo album entitled ''The Fading Thought''. The album is one more Jargon?s brainchild which possess an ''inner otherness'' which called for a different musical route. It will be released at the end of the spring of 2020 and it will be available in digital form and vinyl.

4 stars a glimmer of hope

During these dark times, this album comes as a lifeline. Deeply personal, extremely well-crafted, cathartic and adequately bizarre to cause prog excitement. Jargon retains the goth/dark-wave aura of Verbal Delirium's sound in his personal debut and does away with most of the heaviness and guitar distortion. Interestingly, there is a glimmer of hope and optimism coming out of an abundance of minor chord progressions.

Jargon creates on piano, mostly modern classical/cinematic music, which filters influences from 70's Genesis (Time is Running Out) and sounds resembling great (but disparate) classic and more modern composers - Greek Manos Hatzidakis and Russian Gleb Kolyadin come to mind. Marillion and Saviour Machine hints can be heard in the dystopic ''How Can I?'', Jargon's soft spot for Muse is revealed in (perhaps the least impressive number) ''Window to the World'' while the aura of Peter Hammill is - as expected - more than evident.

The three instrumentals are stunning pieces of self-expression with impressive buildups and the violin literally and metaphorically striking some sensitive chords to the point where I am brought to tears in the opening ''The Film'' and ''Light'' (feels like Rock Progressivo Italiano has managed to creep in the latter - reminds me of Gnu Quartet's recent work). The bombastic ''Dance of the Framed Words'' makes me smile and wander back to Gryphon's ''Red Queen to Gryphon Three''.

It is unlikely that you will find this album any less than intriguing. A highlight for 2020 with thanks owed to the composer for sharing his inner, fading, thoughts...


Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
