. MARCH 2007
Anubis Spire has come as a real surprise to my ears, after two releases, they come back wih a innovative approach that, certainly will put them in the premier league of todays progscene. The music is a mind expanding journey that combines spaces sound of Pink Floyd, with a rick  and energetic Hard Rock elements, also crossing parts of  a Classic Rock, Melodic Metal and of course, the best in Symphonic Progressive Rock. I can considers this work as success, a fine album, which maintain a good standard throughout and features rich instrumentation, including hooky songwriting, lots of atmospheric keyboards in all of their musical moments, also featuring a solid bass and a vibrant drums, complemented by melodic and  lovely vocals, but the main highlights are on a variety of dreamy guitars solos, can be found in all compositions. Another fine album, especially for all the progressive rock fans, who always are looking for something different and very exciting. Brilliant and fantastic, an incredible album and an amazing band, highly recommendable...

Bill MacKechnie - Lead Guitar/Vocals
Tim Costley - 4, 6, 12 string Bass Guitar and Picoolo Bass
Dave Sweet - Backing Vocals, Mellotron, Moog Mark V, Roland Jx3P Ensoniq EPS, Yamaha CS-5, Sequential Circuits 6 trak AnubiCube Twin Axis Optical Theremin w, Computer Interface

Anubis Spire was formed new years day 1998 after a chance jam session the night before. Made up of musical veterans who wanted to write and play music in the mid-seventies style of such bands as "Led Zeppelin", "Mahavishnu Orchestra", etc., the band set about melding it's various influences and adding a heavy dose of world and ethnic sounds and a modern twist to the mix. The debut album Old Lions (in the world of snarling sheep) was recorded in a barn, on an antiquated 8 track almost entirely Live! 

Old Lions (in the world of snarling sheep) is a mostly instrumental album (4 vocal tunes) that packs over 65 minutes of intense guitar-heavy progressive rock/world fusion improvisation into it's 15 cuts. What does Anubis Spire sound like? One reviewer summed them up as: "Progressive rock from Mars, filtered through Atlantis, India and ancient Egypt and sounding kinda like a fistfight between "Jimi Hendrix" and "John McLaughlin" at the base of the great pyramid!"

It's been a long and quite frankly, torturous journey but the long awaited new album "Children Of A Foreign Faith" from Anubis Spire is now available at CDBaby.
