Automata biography
"Automata was born in Santiago-Chile in the year 2000 formed by Alfredo Smith (Drums), Iñaki Varela (Guitar, also in Exsimio), Sebastián Lekanda (Guitar, also in Bella e Putana) and Luciano Gómez (Bass Guitar, also in Alambique Veloz). After a couple of live shows and a demo recording that was never released, Gómez leaves the band. <>

After a long and unsuccessful search for a bass player, the band decided to explore the "electronics" world. This allow them to write the bass lines, opening possibilities for the aplication of new musical resources into their work.

After a long period of composing and adapting to their new condition, Automata started performing some live shows in 2003. In August 2004, the band began the recording of Mecanica (their first album) which was finally released in September 2005. This was accomplished independently with the kind support of Estudios L.S.E and Bolchevique Records.

The music of Automata may be labelled as Instrumental Progressive Metal with influences of bands like King Crimson, Rush, Tool and Meshuggah, among many others.

Automata's debut album has been distributed in several countries and although it has been around for only a few months, it has already impressed critics and the audience in general. Automata has already gained recognition, occupying an important and privileged spot in the world of music."

Sebastián Lekanda (guitarist of AUTOMATA)

Review by stonetrip

5 stars I just loved this album in which you can expect extreme guitar licks complemented with great drums and electronic appliances. Great musicians!!

This stone-brick gives you no quarter from its beginning, offering different sonic aspects of a grey-dead world where machines simply rules above men. Solid compositions influenced by bands like King Crimson, Meshuggah, Liquid Tension Experiment and Tool. Complex in nature, Automata flashes among other good SA bands. Very good for a debut album, fully consistent. You can't find anything miss-matching....... Automata is a prog-metal robot that trasports you to another time and space. I hope we can get more shortly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Review by Edward Inostroz

3 stars Well I don't like this. For my ears sound like an uninspired project trying to emulate to Fripp and company. Automata is like a robot without feeling snd character, like a boring mix of the rest of a crimsonian dinner, too mechanical, like the same song over and over again. Nothing new. I prefer the real thing: groups like TRYO or EXSIMIO. Good musicians, but not essencial.

4 stars Chile's progressive-experimental machinery continúes to originate amazing, exciting bands that provide renewing airs and refreshing energies to the Crimsonian side of prog. Autómata is one of the latest gems to come out of this side of the prog spectrum, with their debut album "Mecánica" being the perfect proof for that. The album's repertoire is a catalogue of incendiary combinations of modern Crimsonian art-rock, prog metal, industrial and hard-edged jazz-rock. This power-trio comprises two guitarists, a drummer and no bassist. The bass lines, together with the synthesized effects and layers, are provided by digital guitars. The seven uneven numbered pieces conform the repertoire's main nucleus, while the remaining ones serve as digital interludes, which go from Projekct-inspired soundscapes to minimalist electronics. The album gets started with 'Trigon0', a powerful roller coaster that creates sonic whirlwinds within the listener's head: less than 3 minutes is what the threesome need to display their vigorous riffs solidly placed on complex rhythm patterns. 'Antigonia' takes things to an even heavier strand, including some fabulous leads that add fire to the fire. 'Rubik' and the title track are the most obviously complex pieces in the album, which is perhaps the reason why the yare my personal favorites. In the sequence that goes from 'hydrokinetics' all the way to 'Loxosceles Laeta' we find Autómata exploring their own Crimsonian instincts with absolute fruition, combining the counterpoint dynamics of their 80s albums and the ethereal vibe of the Projekcts. 'Möeller' closes down the nuclear repertoire in a wild, wild way, recapturing the neurotic complexity of 'Rubik' and the title track. Of all the brief interludes, 'kinetic_07' is arguably the most bizarre one, an electronic trip that wouldn't have been out of place in a Can or Faust album. Right after 'Möeller', follows a series of 4-second tracks (all but one totally silent), until 'Desolacion' - the real closure - appears. This is an exercise on synthesized orchestrations played on digital guitar, portraying an air of somber majesty, distant and surreal. Well, all in all, "Mecánica" was one of the most amazing and explosive South American prog releases of 2005, and it really should be enough reason to stop ignoring the interesting music that is created in this side of the world. Autómata is an item to consider in a good prog collection.

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to Fitzcarraldo for the last updates
