    Atlas - In Pursuit of Memory

    Thanks man! We tried a lot of different approaches throughout the album, so there's certainly something for everyone I think.. some of the stuff we tried might not to be to everyone's taste but we wanted to try and bring something a little different to the table with some of the tracks. We've finished up a full music video for the next track, which is very AOR.. can't wait to get that one out soon!

  4. Atlas sign record deal with AOR Heaven We are pleased to announce we have secured a deal with AOR Heaven for the release of our debut album 'In Pursuit of Memory' set for world wide physical release on the 28th of September. Read an excerpt from the AOR Heaven press release below: "The writing sessions for the debut album officially started in December 2017 and continued for 8 months. The band were given an opportunity in June to have a break from the album production when they were approached by UK Melodic Rock band Vega to open up for them and AOR Heaven rockers Midnite City in support of their latest album tour. Rob Evans of Powerplay Magazine had helped the band get in contact with Georg Siegl, the founder of AOR Heaven, and after discussions between the band and Siegl a contract was drawn up. The album name ‘In Pursuit of Memory’ reflects the nature and themes of the songs heard throughout the album. With a common theme throughout the album being self-reflection, healing and learning from mistakes one has made; with lyricists Thorley, Moss and Wells all penning at least one track centered on those themes. The album was recorded and engineered by keyboard player James Thorley at his studio ‘The Woodshed”. Thorley also took on the role of the producer as he did on the bands previous self released EP. Sam Millar of Bigfoot provided ‘guest vocals’ on the album as well; his vocal harmony contributions can be heard throughout most of the tracks and add a much desired AOR factor that the band often desire in their songs. Christoffer Borg (Taste, Art Nation) was chosen as the mixing and mastering engineer on ‘In Pursuit of Memory’. Borg’s credit’s, which include Anthrax, Evergrey & Kee Marcello gave the group confidence that he would be able to do the variety of songs they had written the justice it sonically deserved."

    Sons Of Apollo - Psychotic Symphony

    First listen to 'Signs of The Time' didn't really do anything for me. I did however like the instrumental section, had a 'Falling Into Infinity' fusion vibe to it. I think I liked that part so much because I was genuinely expecting a metal shred/wank fest so was pleasantly surprised. Had a few more listens to it and it is sort of a grower, not a bad song by any means. Was refreshing to hear genuine analogue keyboard sounds compared to how Dream Theater have used them in the past 10/15 years. Will probably still check out the rest of the album.

    Giant reunites for first time

    The few videos I've seen going around facebook sound alright. Dann Huff's clearly enjoying himself with the guitar side of things. It's strange that he didn't sing at all and slightly disappointing (even if that is a bit selfish of me to say) better than no gig at all though

    New W.E.T album coming

    I believe it was confirmed that a new work of art is on the way This year i think Ah, even better then!

    Lionville - A World Of Fools

    Not had chance to listen to pick this up yet. Really liked World of Fools and the production sounds like a massive step up from the first two albums. Anyone know if Lars had a hand in mixing this as he did with the last WOA?

    New W.E.T album coming

    Great news! Would personally prefer a new Work of Art album on the cards (although did see a recent pic of Lars and Robert together on fb, so maybe that's coming to?) but this is also welcome news.
  10. Hi guys! Long time lurker that's decided to come out of the shadows. I'd like to share a project I've been working on with some friends in the UK. We've been working on a heavy melodic rock EP and we're now in the early stages of working with a singer. However we felt like we wanted to start gaining some interest and feedback now, so we've put together an instrumental from the leftover ideas from the recording sessions. Here's a rough mix of the track via our sound cloud: https://soundcloud.com/atlasprojectuk/over-above It's slightly more in the 'metal' region then what will end up on the EP (probably why some parts didn't make the cut) hopefully the keyboards should make up for the AOR guys in here Thanks for your time!
