Acropod - Tales From The Unknown

The two members of Acropod, Vasilis Giouvris and Savas Karabinos, have recently released on the Greek record label Klik Records an artist album named Tales From the Unknown. Straight from Athens, the strong and impressive sound from the album focuses upon the listener's mind through some hypnotic and mesmerized melodic lines.

Coming with 11 tracks, the album encompasses a large variety of beats and melodic riffs, speaking about the music not as a "supermarket" since their music can't be placed under a particular "tag". Straight from Athens, the strong and impressive sound from the album focuses upon the listener's mind through some hypnotic and mesmerized melodic lines. Really ambient, very chill and soft, sophisticated and mellow, the breaks combinated with some progy ambient music creates a unique and lush atmosphere, which is the right image that reflects the album.

The CD starts with a very deep ambient called Chemisphere and continues with the melodic breaks Macrocosm, a really peaceful and profound track which unlashes some spiritual energies hard to be described in simple words. The third track featured on the album is Floating Mythodia, consisting in a deep and quiet progressive work, very atmospheric as well. Looks like the forth Silver Butterfly brings some energy and wakes up the listener, warming up the scene with some nice breaks, very mentally and sophisticated produced, and later it's time for Prism of Essence to calm down the spirits focusing on the mellow and deep break beat with ambient melody. Soulcolours is a beautiful ambient track, very hypnotic and nostalgic, but there's the great drum and bass called Airfield that takes the listener up, at least spiritual if not physical. The last but not the least is Nanosphere a cosmic and strange breaks tune, with some long and dizzy strings of melody.

Reflecting two personalities, so many various and complicated music tastes, mentalities, way of living and of perceiving the world, this album concentrates upon different things than the usual electronic kick ass monster party. It goes further, beyond the mind and the spirit, penetrating the consciousness and infiltrating in the feelings that we have regarding music in our way of understanding the concept. This album really enters "beyond the unknown".
