Loch Ness biography
The glorious 70's were ending and a group of Brazilian musicians formed by Roberto Reese (electric and vocal); Alexandre "Caph" (Grand Piano, Hammond Organ, TX 70, Polysix Synth, vocals); Claudio Cotia Barreto (Bass) e Ailton Sgon (Drums and percussion). decide to form a Prog bands to play in the vein of their idols from Great Britain and Germany so LOCH NESS is born in Volta Redonda - Rio de Janeiro.

In the style of the hardest bands they used three electric guitars, bass, drums, piano, synths and of course a Hammond but already the first peak of Symphonic Prog had ended, so they have to wait more than a decade to release their first and only album "Prologue" (1991).

The lyrics are in English but with a heavy accent. The highlight is the work done by Alexandre "Caph" with his treasured Hammond and Grand piano.

Loch Ness is reminiscent of Triumvirat due to the epic and pompous tendencies but with a closeness to Hard Rock very common in bands from a country like Brazil where RUSH reach the height of semi gods.

Worth looking into to if you're a fan of strong guitar based Symphonic.

Review by b_olariu

3 stars Loch Ness is an obscure progresive rock band from Brazil, who released only one album since now entitled Prologue from 1991. The music is ymphonic prog with nice arrangements, good interplays between musicians, but sometimes the whole albums is to pale or to naive in comparation with other releases from this genre. It's clear from the first track that they are begginers in this field, the voice is good but to timid, it's like he is afraid to burst out on some parts when is needed this. Anyway, as a whole is a good album that worth investigate, they remind me in places of late '70;s german bands like Minotaurus, Tibet. The music has nice interplys between musicians, specially when are bombastic keys dueling with hard edged guitars, great moments, the instrumental arrangements are the better ones from here like on instrumental Hallowe'en or the lngest piece from here Satan's Ville, nearly 14 min of classy symphonic prog. 3 star for this forgotten early '90 prog goody. Nothing really special but not a bad recotd for sure, worth to be heard at least ones , and only if you find it, it's kinda hard to get. 3 stars

3 stars I bought this album by the Brasilian one shot band Loch Ness in the early Nineties from French progrock label/mail-order service Musea. I was a quite expensive purchase but I still love Prologue, what a wonderful music. The recording quality is not really high standard, the singer has an obvious accent, the arrangements are simple but the music is so warm and compelling and the singer does a good job to add an emotional element. Especially the tension between the beautiful work on the Grand piano and the harder edged guitarplay and bombastic keyboards is great. The one moment you listen to tender acoustic piano, the other moment to fiery or howling electric guitar runs and flashy synthesizer flights, very dramatic and dynamic! AN ALBUM TO DISCOVER!


Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to H.T. Riekels for the last updates
