Negative Zone

NEGATIVE ZONE is a young French band from Marseilles whose talent should burst out before long ! Led by the rhythm section of ECLAT (drummer Fabrice Di MONDO and bass-player Bruno RAMOUSSE) and helped by guest musicians such as MIRAGE's guitarist Stephan FORNER, the band recorded its first eponymous album in 2005, to be released on the Musea label.

NEGATIVE ZONE is a young French band from Marseilles whose talent should burst out before long ! Led by the rhythm section of ECLAT (drummer Fabrice Di MONDO and bass-player Bruno RAMOUSSE) and helped by guest musicians such as MIRAGE's guitarist Stephan FORNER, the band recorded its first eponymous album in 2005, to be released on the Musea label. It starts in a surprising way with a composition that may evoke PRIMUS. A few seconds later, it is nothing but obvious: NEGATIVE ZONE stands for one of the best PINK FLOYD disciples. Every ingredient that made the formula successful in the early Seventies is here, in the "Atom Heart Mother" period: careful singing and Beatlesque vocal harmonies, mindblowing keyboards parts and unreal atmospheres, subtle guitar parts and refined acoustic sequences... Some sudden high temperatures and more experimental passages are also present.

Some hints of KING CRIMSON or MAGMA could also be sensed here and there, but the essential thing does not lie there: perfectly composed, performed and produced, NEGATIVE ZONE's music doesn't plagiarize that of anybody else. It reinvents the free and sincere views of the Seventies in a personal, fascinating, nearly bewitching way. This is a magical album, surely one of the essential works of the year ! « hide
