|Artiest||Alpha Du Centaure|
|Genre||Progressive / Neoprog / RIO|
|Omschrijving||ALPHA CENTAURE have a lot in common with other
French artists of the time, though not entirely as
they have a distinct style of their own. The
closest comparison that could be made is the sounds
of ASIA MINOR. There is that darkness that was
prevalent with other bands of the era, but they
have more of a jazz influence. This style is
blended with a touch of space prog, almost
psychedelic in places. There is even a sprinkling
of an operatic tinge in some of the vocals. ALPHA
CENTAURY`s self-titled album was released in 1979
on Mellow Labels. It has some amazing lead guitar
with the lush sound of Steve Hackett and keyboards
that lean towards a blend of GENESIS` Banks and
PINK FLOYD`s Wright.
