Chronos Mundi biography
Three man band with a "oceans of keyboard sound". Acoustic guitar is in the Steve HACKETT style. Really tight bass & drum. Their music is Symphonic Prog and is richly developed with intricate interplay. This is very good music with several instrumentals and all of the symphonic intrigue. Vocals in Portuguese but there aren't many vocals. Extremely melodic, the group has basic influences from PINK FLOYD, YES, ELP, GENESIS, PFM and RENAISSANCE. Recommended...!!!

4 stars Chronos Mundi was an apparently little-known Brazilian trio that released just the one album, Luz e Trevas, in 1999. The band consisted of Alexandre Maraslis (keyboards, guitars), Robson Bertolossi Jr (bass, vocals, guitars) and Gustavo Voigt (drums). Their music has a largely pastoral feel and is highly melodic, much in the tradition of the many fine symphonic bands from Brazil. There's also a little bit of a Genesis influence, circa Trespass. The album is comprised of 7 tracks, 4 main songs and 3 short instrumental pieces.

The brief opening piece, Intro, is an ambient soundscape of electronic effects that gradually builds and segues into the title track. This in its turn is a complex piece that comprises many changes of tempo and mood, and these two pieces combined get the album off to a promising start. The album takes a bit of a dip with the next couple of tracks, the 4-part song Nasce a Semente, and the short acoustic instrumental Thermo. Nasce a Semente doesn't lack variety but it's interesting rather than excellent, while Thermo is no more than an unremarkable little interlude. Fortunately the album finishes strongly with two top-notch songs, Forest Valley and D(xi), which are interspersed by the miniscule orchestral pastiche of Symphonic. Forest Valley is a lovely pastoral ballad featuring acoustic guitar and willowy synthesizer, and its English lyrics don't seem out of place alongside the other Portuguese- language songs on the album. D(xi) is a 7-part suite containing some spoken-word vocals and an extended guitar solo reminiscent of Steve Hackett, a definite highlight. All three musicians are skilful if not virtuosos and the songs are structured well, although the sound is perhaps a bit thin at times as there's little multi-tracking or overdubbing. There's nothing here to really get the pulse racing and there are a couple of weaker tracks in the middle of the album. However all the tracks flow together nicely and there are some quality songs, including a couple of real high notes to finish. Recommended to fans of mellow, melodic symphonic prog.
