ATAVISM OF TWILIGHT

Psychedelic/Space Rock • United States


From Progarchives.com, the ultimate progressive rock music website

Atavism Of Twilight biography
Good prog band from the L.A. area, which performs an intricate music with progressive and fusion elements, resulting in a very interesting blend. Sophisticated writing skill with knock-out, firey playing. The compositions are upbeat without sounding campy. ATAVISM OF TWILIGHT delivers ever-changing motifs and leads, being able to stay out of the "repetition trap" that many instrumental bands fall into.

3 stars One of the most unknown and obscure bands from entire american prog rock scene, Atavism of Twilight for sure delivers a quite competent heavy prog with psychedelic and spce overtones who will pleases most of the fans of the genre. The self titled album issued in 1992 at already famous Greg Walker's label Syn-Phonic offers 4 instrumental pieces with intricate arrangements, complicated parts and sophisticated songwritting with solid musicinship all over. Maybe the production is not top notch, but the rest for me is quite enjoyble. This band and implicit this album gone under the radar of prog, is quite strange because in early '90s prog was in a revival world wide. For me 3 solid satrs, maybe 3.5 stars in places. For fans of Djam Karet or those who incorporated some retro heavy psychedelic prog in their music.

3 stars I'm not sure why they're under Psychedelic / Space Rock this is more in the Heavy-Prog field and all instrumental. Very prominant bass here with guitar and drums standing out, with some flute and little in the way of keyboards. This American band thanks "the mighty DJAM KARET for the inspiration to make conceptual music". Some cool pictures in the liner notes including one from the TV show "My Three Sons". The scary thing is I barely remember the show yet I could name Uncle Charlie and Ernie without even thinking. There's also a picture of Mr.Rogers.

I find the music too samey and unfortunately the first thing I noticed was that the sound quality wasn't the best. The drums do not sound right. Maybe this is a product of living in an age where we get such great sounding music most of the time but this did affect my enjoyment of this disc.

Around the Internet this is getting some good praise so I don't want to sound too negative. I enjoy their style but find it difficult to even offer up 3 stars,even if some feel this 1992 album is a minor American classic. I can't agree unfortunately. Barely 3 stars.

Review by Squire Jaco

4 stars Generally, I would say that if you ever come across a progressive rock band with a name as pretentious sounding as "Atavism of Twilight", turn and run away. Quickly.

But I was lucky enough to read a review about this band that said all the right things about the music, like "...sounds like a combination of Djam Karet and Anglagard...", and I took a chance that really paid off - this is a fantastic cd from a 1992 band from Los Angeles that was making music like (almost) no one else.

The flute, mellotron and heavier riffing certainly bring Anglagard to mind often, while the punchy rhythm section with the fusiony bass is redolent of the classic Djam Karet sound. I sense that they were also influenced in part by some of the great U.S. prog bands of the 70's and 80's, like Cathedral, Yezda Urfa and Mirthrandir (to name just a few).

The four long songs on this cd are all instrumental - they start to sound a bit similar to each other near the end of the cd, so some points are lost on diversity of sound (though I must admit that they do a decent job of mixing pastoral passages in with the heavier/frenetic shtuff on most songs). And I'd love to have more than just 41 minutes of music here. But this was a really nice surprise - I'm shocked that the band never did another album.

As of this writing, the cd is pretty hard to find - I must have purchased the last copy from the website where I found mine because it just seemed to disappear from view there. But this is one to seek out if you are a fan of any of the bands mentioned above. (All pretentions are forgiven, gentlemen. ;-)
