It was the love of the music that drove us to want to make music ourselves. Not everybody wanted to be musicians but it was natural for us to knit all those things together.
No, not really. The band would morph, various friends would join and leave, but the nucleus was always me and Ray. Then we ran out of rehearsal space. Pete was also playing in a band called Raw Energy and he had a space in a derelict school in Paddington, down by the canal in Ladbroke Grove.
So we used to go down there — it had power, nobody would go in there, the place was falling down. He listened to us rehearse one day, brought his guitar along and thought it was alright, so then Andy was a part of the mix.
After a few months of annoying the neighbours down there, we were evicted from there too. That became our regular rehearsal space. We turned the backroom into the rehearsal room and would go there most nights. I was going through a cosmic feel at the time. The first name we had was G-Force, because for some reason, every tune we wrote was in the key of G. The music was instigated by myself really.
Ray was the jazz one, he looked for the timbre in the music, whereas I looked for the heavier funk. It was an organic thing that all emanated from the bass. Being bass heavy in the early s was probably just that little bit ahead of its time, given the direction dance floor music was taking. Streaming Unlimited. Available for download now.

Atmosphere early as piano arrives after a minute.
So much atmosphere here. Some soaring guitar turns into a solo after 7 minutes. The heaviness returns quickly after that. The vocals are fantastic after 17 minutes. Then those amazing vocals return. It ends with a pastoral orchestral passage with reserved vocals. A solid 4 stars and a band that every Prog-Metal fan should check out. Review by progrules Prog Reviewer. Atmosfear deserves much more attention than they got so far on progarchives, so prog metal fans: time to check this one out!!
Absolute highlight to me: Zephaniah, fantastic track, all you may expect from prog metal. The poster alone is invaluable! Nostalgia never sounded so sweet Reply Notify me 2 Helpful.
