Atlantis biography
L.A.-based ATLANTIS* was formed from the twisted minds and paranoid dementia of TEKNOBUDD X and Ken JAQUESS sometime during the 90's. They bill their synth-dominated, light progressive metal as "modern symphonic rock". Having played many shows over a period of 3 years in South California, the members of ATLANTIS are currently on hiatus and/or working on other projects.

Their 1997 self-titled debut CD garnered attention in the underground on-line prog scene. "Pray for Rain" sounds like a cross between the melodic prog/pop rock of STYX and the modern production and guitar/synth chops of DREAM THEATER. They have a very special guest that of legendary guitarist, Allan HOLDSWORTH. This is some of the best stuff to come not in 2002 and would be very appealing to all song based prog lovers worldwide.

* ATLANTIS (not to be confused with the Norwegian band of the same name)

3 stars LA-based US Prog band coming from the 90's and formed around keyboardist Teknobudd (aka Jorge Vasquez) and bassist/singer Ken Jaquess.Apparently they started as a trio with Matthew Hedrick behind the drum kit and Jaquess handing also the guitars on their eponymous debut, which was independently released in 1997.

They described their sound as modern Symphonic Rock and that's what's exactly going on listening to their first offering, which is pretty complex at moments, visiting the stylings of compatriots MAGELLAN, CAIRO and SPOCK'S BEARD and looking back to the 70's and the epic sound of YES, the E.L.P. grandieur and the pompous orchestrations of GENESIS.But there are no analog keyboards in here and they sound quite modern to a disturbing point at times, because some programmed instrumental parts are pretty weak and plastic.Fortunately the level of the compositions is pretty high with constant changes and extended instrumental parts with big symphonic textures and melodic overtones.Most of the tracks are quite long with CHRIS SQUIRE bass lines and keyboard parts with both flashy and dramatic edges, somewhere between E.L.P. and MARILLION.The atmosphere ranges from bombastic and complex to mellow and dreamy, where sporadic acoustic guitars are thrown in next to an omnipresent keyboard forefront and background.Vocals are pretty laid-back and of questionable range with Jaquess singing in low pitches.But the focus is usually on the music, which is very convincing despite the recording mediocrity.

Solid album, downgraded by the mass of digital instrumentation.Very symphonic at times, full of interesting melodies and instrumental efficiency, but not quite recommended for fans of natural instruments.To my ears it is pretty good and a decent purchase for lovers of the Neo/Symphonic Prog genre.

Review by Dan Bobrowski

2 stars Collectors/Fans only.... Kinda tough to be a collector when the band only has two albums. So I guess the collector would have to be a Holdsworth fan, as I am. Allan's the reason I bought this disc, but I must say that he's not the only highlight. The bassist Ken Jaquess has a very solid, yet busy approach, and uses the space provided to show his chops. Keyboardist Technobud X (Jorge Vasquez) is the main soloing musician in the group, each tune is packed with lush soundscapes and strong leads. Guitarist Karl Johnson gets a few moments to solo and plays some competent leads. The drumming is divided between Hank Wicke and Bob Craft. Both support the songs professionally, without any real flash or brilliance, they just play for the song.

The downfall, to me, are the weak lyrics and unfortunate vocals of David Bodnar. Like Brad Marler's whiney, overdramatic efforts on Glass Hammer's "Chronometree," Bodnar tries to sing as if the lyrics were a heartfelt ode to his mother, sappy and annoying. Pray for Rain would have gained a star in my rating if it were mainly instrumental.

That said, "Again," the lone instrumental, is my favorite track. Emersonian keyboards, soaring guitars and technical bass.... way too short. Holdsworth's solo (just over 1 minute long) in "Oceans to Cross" is patented Allan, yet it's nothing he hasn't said or alluded to before. "Hills of Time" piano break reminds me of, egad, Motley Crue's "Home Sweet Home" (I'm embarrassed to know the tune). "Magnificent Desolation" has that pop styled sound of the 80's Asia/GTR, maybe even a touch of mid period Rush. "Pray for Rain" and "Forest Cathedral" clock in at over 10 minute each, but get dragged down by weak lyrics and vocals.

Fans of Enchant, Magellan, IQ or Marillion may find this disc engaging.
