Atlantide biography
Like their contemporaries HERO, ATLANTIDE was an all-Italian band active in Germany in the Seventies. Its four members, the Sanseverino brothers (Mimmo, Matteo, Leonardo and Mario), originally came from Cirigliano, a town in the Basilicata region of southern Italy. They already used to play together as a band before their move to Rottweil (Germany) in 1973, where they still live (though one of the brothers, Leonardo, died in 2006).

In their new country ATLANTIDE engaged in a lively concert activity, mainly as a support act to local bands, such as THE SCORPIONS, and gained critical acclaim from the press. However, their only, self-produced album, "Francesco ti ricordi" (1976), released exclusively in Germany, had very little commercial success (though it seems to have been printed in relative large quantities). It is a good heavy progressive rock album, strongly influenced by the likes of DEEP PURPLE, featuring six tracks one of which, "Quando la luna", is over 11 minutes long.

Atlantide Heavy Prog

Review by Tarcisio Moura
Prog Reviewer

2 stars Very interesting: an italian band, formed by four brothers, based in Germany during the 70´s. Although the style here is heavy prog in the vein of Deep Purple and Atomic Rooster, they sing in italian, which, contrary to their symphonic counterparts in their homeland, does not really fit well for the style. So much so that the only one that it does seem to annoy a little less is the slow paced parts of Quando La Luna. Besides, the lead vocals were recorded way too loud for my taste. Like those aforementioned bands, there´s a lot of Hammond runs, a strong rhythm section and lots of guitar solos.

Unfortunatly the songwriting is not that great and the guitar solos are definitly boring (the guitarrist is always using the same fuzz box for all the tracks, with very few variations). The keyboards could be explored a little more too. I heard they had a good reputation as a live band in Germany (opening for acts such as Scorpions), but Francesco Ti Ricordi is not a great debut. The production is ok, although not espetacular. Maybe they needed a real good, professional producer to help them out with more creative arrangements, more instrumental variety and help recording the vocals in a different way. Anyway, this was only their first efford, and I believe that with some little more experience and time Atlantide could come out with something really outstanding. Unfortunalty they never recorded a follow up and we´ll probably never know their real potential.

Conclusion: this is more a curio than anything else. No track really stands and the music is way too commonplace to recommend it to anyone but collectors and hardcore fans of the style. Even then, anyone interested should listen before buying this CD.

Rating: something between 1.5 and 2 stars.
