Indigo biography
INDIGO were formed by keyboardist Gerald Krampl and bassist Norbert Morin after KYRIE ELEISON dissolved in the late 70's. This Austrian band (not to be confused with a Kraut-rock and an American jazz band of the same name) are something of a high-tech version of KYRIE. They combine symphonic prog and commercial pop with concept (fantasy) stories that were popular during the 80's. The English vocals have a strong German accent but are nonetheless palatable.

Their first two albums, the eponymous "Indigo" and "Short Stories", mix large-scale compositions alongside shorter ones. The music is mostly keyboard based and quite melodic, somewhat comparable in style to Tony Banks' but with a tectonic flavour. Unfortunately, the band lost their lead singer after the first album and Krample, who took over vocal duties, sounds a bit thin. "A Collection of Tales. from Past to Present" is interesting as it compiles the proggier tracks from both albums. Perhaps better still is their 1993 release "Silent Memories". Despite being reduced to two members (Krample and one guitarist), the band offers here a more mature set of compositions. With the help of two guest musicians, their (mostly programmed music) still manages to be crafty, spirited and not overly derivative. The cd is a bit uneven but contains two excellent and relatively lengthy tracks worth the price of the album.

Not absolutely essential but could interest fans of 80's era GENESIS or early MARILLION.

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars Post-Kyrie Eleison Austrian band, found in Wien in 1982 by keyboardist Gerald Kramp and bassist Norbert Morin.For their first album they recruited singer Anzo, guitarists Robert Altmann and Walter Kramer and drummer Michael Graf.At the same time Krampl established the IndigoMusic label in order to release and distribute Indigo's albums.The self-titled debut of the band was recorded at Knatterton Studios in Wien and eventually released in 1984.

Walking on the same line with music industry's needs, Indigo performed some fairly commercial and melodic Progressive/Art Rock with strong KYRIE ELEISON hints on some tracks.The album kicks off with the excellent ''Guardians of Life'', a MACHIAVEL/GENESIS/SUPERTRAMP/IRRWISCH affair with fantastic work by Krampl on moog synths, Mellotron and organ, a beautiful up-tempo composition with strong symphonic leanings, Anzo's great vocals and an incredibly rich sound.The following tracks follow a more commercial path, not unlike to what SUPERTRAMP or KANSAS producing at the time: catchy choruses, romantic piano lines, AOR hints, light guitars and accesible grooves.''I saw them fall'' though is a fantastic ballad, again in a rather commercial vein, but with a great atmosphere, nice electric solos and Krampl's organ sounds leading the way.''Man on the run'' and ''Sunrise in the Mountains'' mix keyboard-driven soft prog with AOR, being well-crafted and romantic compositions.''Foxhunt'' will close the album in an awesome way and sounding a lot like IRRWISCH or late-70's GENESIS.Again Krampl will produce some fascinating passages with his piano, synths and organ, but this time it will be Altmann's and Kramer's guitars, which will blow your mind with their fantastic solos.

On this release Krampl will proove to be a mastermind, pushing KYRIE ELEISON's sound a step further and trying to go along with the music preferences of the time, without denying his progressive past.Today the album sounds a bit cheesy at moments, but still holds a fair amount of highlights to satisfy any fan of accesible Progressive Rock or Neo/Symphonic Prog.Recommended.

2 stars This Indigo album was one of those I bought at a venture hoping it proved to be great. No luck this time, this is not really an asset for progrock. There are e few songs worth listening to but even they are not great. The only one that stands out to my opnion is Guardians of life, a nice song, even a little bit catchy. But the rest: nothing special

1 stars Roor neo-prog-pop ..Nothing to do with the suburb ancestor of the group 'KYRIE ELEISON'. It seemed to me that someone in his free hours wrote some pop prog songs and released them wihout a purpose.... Try to find KYRIE ELEISON and avoid all the INDIGO's records

Review by pirkka

2 stars These are mellow and simehow melancholic and nostalgic pop sogs. Lots of keyboards and computer arranged sounds like the drums. Even the Mirror, which is a long 11 minutes track, is quite poppish. It is the only song that might be considered prog here. If you want to hearmore proggish Indigo you would do better with the compilation A Collection of Tales... from Past to Present.

Indigo is a project by Gerald Krampl from Austria. It started at the ruins of Kyrie Eleison, a band that tried to play very Genesis like music. Their singer was Wolfgang Wessely. After Anzo, the singer who sung in the first album Indigo, left the group in 8, and Wolfgang had commited suicide, Gerald decided to sing him self. He is not a Gabriel like singer and that has an impact to the result.

This is a album for collectors only.

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition.
