Ataraxia biography
This Japanese progrock band was founded in '83 as Position A and they did a support act for the legendary OUTER LIMITS. Soon after guitarist Aramaki left the band to join .... OUTER LIMITS, he must have impressed them as support-act! The band decided to change their name into ATARAXIA and in '86 they released the album "Adolescence of an Ancient Warrior". The stunning front cover art is similar to the work of Dutch master Hieronymus Bosch. The music has strong hints from early GENESIS and IQ.

The album "Adolescence of Ancient Warrior" sounds like a tribute to Steve HACKETT, Tony BANKS and Peter GABRIEL. The instrumental parts are good with strong guitarwork and fine keyboard-play but, in my opinion, singer Kideaki Murata is the weakest link, his vocals are too high and too powerless.

2 stars When I discovered the wonderful Japanese progrock in the early Nineties, this album was often described as a smal gem. The cover art is stunning, in the vein of our Dutch master Hiernonymus Bosch who often blended religion, surrealism and horror. The music is less captivating, it has echoes from mid-Genesis featuring Hackett-like guitar and Banks-like keyboards. The compositions has some good momens but the poor vocals and monotone drumming are very irritating. I recommend Outer Limits, Pageant, Gerard and Ars Nova as starters to the Japanese progrock.

2 stars One of the weaker offerings from the sympho-prog explosionette in 1980's Japan. Fairly flimsy synth-oriented sympho-prog, bordering on neo-prog. Singing bass player Hideaki Murata tries for that Gabriel-esque theatrical thing, but he doesn't have the pipes. The title song is an attempt at the "multiple voices" thing a la "The Battle Of Epping Forest", and is a complete joke. Lyrically, it's totally laughable, with even worse English lyrics than Novalis' notorious BANISHED BRIDGE. "Gabble" especially. And Murata's mush-mouthed delivery is no help.

The low point is a short vocal song with electronic drums whose title I can't replicate here: its title is the concatenated "ng" glyph found in the pronunciation key to some dictionaries. It's followed by the instrumental "Plug Cord II", which is probably the album's highlight, along with the surprisingly lively "A Low Value Counting Clock". The album's "epic"-the thirteen minute "Against The Wind-is predictably disappointing, just pointless and meandering.

Review by fabrizio.moroni

3 stars Another record worth a review..... this only effort by this ensemble came in 1986, wrapped in a beutiful cover with dwarves and elves. And also the music envelops you in a magic storm of keyboards and guitars tunes, but.... not everything goes so fine: a little weakness of the singer and a sound production rather caotic and with poor quality stop the work to fly higher. But after all, a rather good production, in the vein of Genesis (wind&w. period) and Camel.
Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to Rune2000 for the last updates
