Prog Reviewer
4 stars Ultime Atome is a progressive rock band from France formed around early'90's but manage to come with a single album so far named Dark visions from 2003 issued at Musea records. The music this band offers has a touch of neo prog combined with dark, intense mid tempo arrangements, and they are a little heavier then Mariilion, but the vocalist Jean Marc Tesorio is almost one on one with Fish - Fugazi era. Here are only 4 tracks, one of them clocking around 22 min, the rest are also long, with plenty of great instrumental passages who are very intricate, have an epic feel, mid tempo with lots of guitars and heavier keyboards.Also the album has a gothic feel, very dark and unique in same time, but the complexity of the pieces make them for sure a progressive rock band. So , a very pleasent album to me, very emotional, deep and with super moments make me put 4 stars to Dark visions. A solid release that needs a wider recognition for sure. All 4 pieces are great, specially the moments when the voice is active, very good vocalist and very theatrical in places like Fish was in his glory days. Recommended album and band for those who like the type of neo prog with a dark intense moments.
