"If "230503" will not revolutionize the world of progressive rock, it remains an excellent album with tracks that go from delicate to violent, from sober to more daring with ease."

Anubis is an Australian band, born from the meeting of singer Robert James Moulding and keyboardist David Eaton. They joined together to create this "230503" concept album on the theme of the premature death of one of their friends. 

Anubis offers us a rather classic progressive rock, straddling the 80's and 90's, those that saw the beginnings of bands like Pendragon or IQ. The two tracks that open the album are perfect examples. Leaving Here Tonight' and its acoustic guitar, clearly reminds of "The World" with its clean mix. The first of the two instrumentals ('Anonimity') - violent and out of place in the context of the moment with its liberated drums and a percussive bass - allows to switch to a more progressive music embodied by two particularly successful tracks.

The first one, 'The Collapse', is a 12 minutes gem that offers us a long guitar solo that Steve Rothery would not have denied. The steady pace turns to emotion as the mellotron, keyboards and guitar unite with the vocals, followed by a guitar solo. The second one, 'Disinfected And Abused', proposes us a rhythm all in contretemps and an omnipresent saxophone which will mark of its print of its whole title. We find there a big part of the neo-progressive references of the 80s and 90s (Pink Floyd, Marillion).

If "230503" will not revolutionize the world of progressive rock, it remains an excellent album with tracks that go from delicate to violent, from sober to more daring without shocking. Anubis has its own personality, bewitching and real. Certainly one of the albums of the year...

OTHER REVIEWS
EQUILIBRIUM: Rekreatur (2010)
PAGAN/VIKING METAL - "Rekreatur" finds the very good balance between folk, pagan and metal, both close to the canons of the genre but with the little something extra that makes all the difference
WATAIN: Lawless Darkness (2010)
BLACK METAL - Lawless Darkness exudes an incredible darkness, creeping, almost palpable, that Watain has the intelligence not to express only through a Black Metal too concerned with codes.
