4 stars Ignatius is a young band from Spain with an excellent debute album named Lights from the deep released this year 2011 but the copositions are almost 10 years older. The sound, the compositions all are very well done on this release and I was little surprise to see that they are only 3 members, because the music is very complx, progressive rock like it was done in the '70's with all ingredients of good quality.. The vocalist Ricardo Boya does aswell keybords parts and some bass arrangements, while Toni Castarlenas is responsable for guitar and Marcelo Ortiz drums. Long pieces, captivating arrangements, intelligent symphonic prog is all about here, and wahat a great unexpected debute from this spanish band. Excellent musicianship with top notch performance, imaginative duels between keyboards and guitar, very good voice remind me a little bit of Gentle Giant, even in music in some parts, a great example is the openinng track Bleeding Souls, briliant , and sets the atmosphere for the next 6 pieces. Not a weak moment here, all is almost perfect, even the cover art is quite intristing. Ignatius , sounds enjoyble and exciting, similar with masters as Genesis, Yes or Gentle Giant, but aswell has a plenty of their own twists that make this album so great. Recommended one of the most captivating debutes of this year and fans of prog rock don't miss this one, worth it for sure.
