Maat Lander biography
MAAT LANDER is an artistic collaboration between THE RE-STONED guitarist Ilya LIPKIN and brothers Ark and Ivan FEDOTOV of VESPERO. In 2013 they first met on stage during VESPERO's tour in Moscow, where LIPKIN had a guest appearance. Afterwards the musicians started to exchange their musical views and ideas through the web.

In December 2014, LIPKIN was invited to Astrakhan to try new tunes on stage. That memorable concert evolved to a total public success. A new band was born, the instrumental psychedelic-space-rock trio MAAT LANDER. The band's emphatic debut album "The Birth of Maat's Galaxy" was released on R.A.I.G Records in 2015.

4 stars And now in 2017 Russian space-kraut prog rockers MAAT LANDER are continuing the story of their main protagonist. Announced as a series in fact, what the album title is going to reveal. This is based on an eccentric, fictional, mystical affair, maybe you can also call this a modern myth. It started in 2015 when Maat invented and created his own universe. Meanwhile he has the courage to travel across. And the band invites us to escort him, through the insane world of their space adventurer. His experienced staff, consisting of the psychonauts Ilya Lipkin as well as Arkady and Ivan Fedotov, will lead us through all highs and lows, twists and turns. Promised. Hereby we are confronted with intelligent gas-shaped lifeforms and other creatures ... but don't worry, lift-off asap!

As the songs are nearly clocking at 80 minutes in total, the vinyl version, released on the German label Clostridium Records, goes without the last three tracks. Or the other way round if you will, this are bonus tracks when it comes to the CD release. Where hereby, pointing to the debut, the extended The Birth Of Maat's Galaxy comes as a live version, recorded in Abstrakhan. Maat's excursions are mellowed with some short Galaxy Passage interludes exclusively built by acoustic guitar and synths. As it goes with such adventures in general, even be it physical or mental, you will be faced with dangerous moments full of courageous moves. In the same way as calming floating parts then again, when moving from one point to the other. Hence you won't die of boredom.

Exemplarily the hypnotic Crimson Turtles comes with tricky multi-tracked guitars which are looping as well as soloing. Surely an album highlight, concerning the dynamic gradually increasing into a rather furious fast-paced issue. The bass lines predominantly sound like electronically generated, appealing nevertheless. The Constellation Of The Mirror Fish shines due to its mellow spacey flow. And surprisingly the guitar entertains in a jazzy manner during Fields Of Serenity, or a trumpet appears on the meandering Maat's First Mistake. So this is not old school space rock, never ever. Just a very unique outfit with entertaining compositions, where the provided atmosphere is melancholic and somewhat aesthetic, fairly eclectic. With their sophomore studio album Lipkin and the Fedotov brothers ultimately have bundled together, very impressing. I'm sure Book #2 is already in the making.

4 stars This vinyl production will provide four already known songs from their debut too, though played live on this occasion. That means delivered without any overdubs and showing some different arrangements. The tracks were recorded at a December 2014 day in Astrakhan, Russia, also known as the homebase of VESPERO. And in fact two members of this band are involved in MAAT LANDER, the Fedotov brothers Arkady and Ivan playing keyboards, bass, as well as drums. Finally the formation is completed due to Ilya Lipkin, a Moscow based guitarist and composer, first and foremost being related to the band THE RE-STONED beforehand.

Hence a rather experienced and competent trio is on the way here for sure. Since their studio album 'The Birth Of Maat's Galaxy' appeared to be a successful entree in 2015, it wasn't a really unforeseen consequence that they would offer some live recordings sooner or later. Now the German Clostridium Records label took over the deal. Well, speaking of missing any overdubs, when listening to Intro at least, you might be inclined to hear a multi-tracked guitar appearance. Just realized by Ilya due to some loops it seems. Additionally including some twittering synth contributions this is a very very emotional start. WOW!

Where the VESPERO sound is also embracing kraut, jazz and some avantgarde impressions, MAAT LANDER are way more focussed on a common space rock attitude. As for that - quite naturally - the drumming for example comes less sophisticated over the course. Anyhow, they are constantly switching between a heavy rocking and floating behaviour, the latter offered with a mesmerizing flow basically. Somewhat exemplary is the song To Johannes Kepler of course. For me this often matches the vision like crossing the endless areas offered in the Russian Federation, just like Siberia, or the Taiga in general.

The closing Space Scum is initiating like a punk tune somehow, yeah really, though soon evolves into an intriguing space jam, first and foremost the lively bass work is impressing me. So this is not ment to downplay Ilya Lipkin's effect, to make it clear, but for me 'Dissolved In The Universe' also comes as a new chapter of the VESPERO related realm in some way, always a pleasure to experience. Musically up to now I never ever was faced with a disappointment, whatever album might be chosen. Consequently this will make you a fan at some point, or what? I'm sure there will be offered more to explore from this space crew soon.

Thanks to Rivertree for the artist addition. and to The Bearded Bard for the last updates
