Agamemnon biography
AGAMEMNON was a German band that recorded their only release back in 1980. There is some speculation that the band is actually from Switzerland, as that is where the original LP was privately released. Either way, AGAMEMNON S/T is keyboard dominated space/psych/prog music. The lyrics are in English. It is reminiscent of Minotaurus, Epidaurus and in some parts Kyrie Eleison. This album features the first two stories from the mythologic Greek hero. It is divided into 2 main tracks as Parts I and II.

Review by cavallo

2 stars Agamemnon sounds like it was recorded one decade earlier than it was actually recorded.. The whole project suffers from poor drumming and mixing. To tell the truth it is impossible for me to take any music serious unless a satisfying drummer is involved in it. But still I kept on listening to the album.

The vocalist sounded like Cat Stevens to me at some passages. But his performance is pleasing anyway. The compositions and the harmonic structure is very basic. Quite repetitive from time to time. The 10th minute of "Part 1" was pleasing to my ears but nothing more than that. The part ends abruptly with a fade out meaning that it was not intended to end at that point when the recording started.Trying to hear the bass is a problem itself.

With the Part 2, luckily we start to hear the bass player. His performance is very musical and above the whole recording. On this track it was the bass player who kept me away from giving up listening.

The keyboard sounds are warm and delicious throughout the album. The piano solo at the 12th minute of Part 2 is surprisingly above the general performance of the album.

I don't know if I will live long enough to give a second chance to listen to Agamemnon but a collector might find it useful to get a copy for his archive.

4 stars This mysterious 1980's album haunted my inspiration, and luckily I eventually found this Greek mythology inspired funny record. It is also a mythic heroic deed to carry the crown of 1970's progressive rock's crown trough the eighties, an era which is yet strongly present in the sound, especially in synths. Overall aural flavor resembles slighlty the tonal textures of Carol of Harvest's first record without the vocals, and also the albums of Streetmark. Lady vocals are not though used in this record, excluding some background sequences. Mentioned synths support strongly this folky soundrealm, and slightly clumsy but pleasant male vocals describe the epic tale in English. Flow of music is logical, relating to European musical heritage of both classical and traditional folk music leanings, performed trough post-psychedelic art rock philosophies. The duration of time used for studying the musical themes is quite amazing, as the dual parts are constructed from quite minimal basics. For example the first ten minutes concist from sole phasing between two key notes, which carry multiple layers of instrumental variations and innovations, giving birth to very stimulating and pleasant voyage. Also the cleverness in arrangements is evident, an factor not always coupling hypnotic underground music. The soothing vortex of symphatetic underground rock flow has cosmic and bucolic levels, where symphonic and psychelic traditional elements merge together as a good willing, mellow entity. I think this record could fit as basis of animated movie for the legend, or maybe could work for vintage gaming background music to early 1980's "Ulysses" PC game, or reading the Gilgamesh epic itself. So, "We were amused by this warmhearted artifact".
