|......................................THE BAND AND RECORD OF THE MONTH|
The sound of Believe is between Symphonic Progressive Rock like the original progressive rock bands of the 70's and, Neo-Prog Rock with bands that blend modern musical styles, with surprising orchestral ideas. Believe follows the tradition of a pure symphonism, with beautiful vocals, ample keyboards sounds, dominant electric guitar solos, very well combined with energetic drums and bass sounds, everything working together with marvelous violin (perhaps the highlight instrument on the band), where it´s not used only as an atmospheric instrument but as solo instrument as well. The compositions, music, lyrics and arrangements on "Yesterday Is A Friend" are emotional, atmospheric and unforgettable, listen carefully all tracks, you must have a special attention to the songs "Time", "Tumor", "You & Me", "Danny Had a Neighbour", "Memories", and "Unfaithful" you will find only pure emotions, but, in my opinion, the strongest tracks on this album are "What They Want" and "Mystery is Closer", both are full of musical feelings. If you consider yourself a fan of Progressive Music you must have this album. Brilliant, fantastic, and amazing work, highly recommendable...
line-up on Believe band are:
Believe, the band, created by Mirek Gil, guitarist, composer, producer, founder member of groups Collage, Mr Gil, Ananke, but he played with "Satelite" as well (on the debut album), started to be interested in rock music very early. Thanks to his older "hippie" brother he heard first rock compositions. It was 1969. War in Vietnam and wonderful pacifist activity. No wonder he remembers "T.Rex" song named "Children Of The Revolution". Then there was a time for "Led Zeppelin", "Deep Purple", "Pink Floyd", "Genesis", "Yes", "King Crimson". First group that was giving concerts mainly in Mirek's secondary school was named "Tris Plus". Marek Trojanowski, Mirek's friend since primary school period, invented the name of the band.
his new band Believe, he recruted former "Satelite" bassist
Przemas Zawadzki, Tomek Rozycki (Vocals, Guitars), Adam Milosz (Keyboards),
Wlodek Tafel (Drums) and Satomi (Violin). Six people, each from a different
musical angle, with a different sensitivity. How does it work? Mirek, Tomek,
Przemas... for them music is passion and joy of creation. Adam, Satomi
and Tafel... for them it's all about education, notes, classical music
and an ability to lose oneself in Believe.
And let's not try to classify where are the roots of such playing. Who needs that?
is not a running track. There is no race going on and it's fine the way
it is. Like it or not. Believe connected a few musical worlds... let the
result remain a pleasure for everyone who decides to listen to these songs
a couple of times.
On this record you will not find any virtuoso attitude. Instead you get a powerful sound full of faith and melody, with some hidden powers and various different flavours added - for these who listen to discover.
Name of the band, title of the record, lyrics and music are a whole that falls well into place within one's head - if one is willing to spare a moment. A little incredible taking into consideration this XXI century.
All together they have over two hundred years and some moments that left a mark on their souls... you can hear it.
