Erasmus biography
ERASMUS are a recording project formed in 2001 by bassist Matthew Cohen and vocalist/lead guitarist Jayde. They were later joined by drummer Charlie Steel and keyboard player Rob Reed (MAGENTA, CYAN). Reed also helped with the arrangements and produced their album "Voyage" in 2002. They were initially going to become a touring band but decided otherwise, as both Cohen and Jayde became more and more involved with respective personal projects. It is therefore unlikely that another ERASMUS album will surface, at least not in the near future.

Although filled with fine melodic song writing, "Voyage" is a rather heavy album; not 'metal' heavy, more like ARENA, mixing warm keyboard sounds with heavy riffing, featuring some interesting chord changes and unexpected twists and turns. As for Jaydee's vocals, they are unique, to say the least, sounding like a weird mix of David Bowie and Tim Smith (CARDIACS). The album also features a brief but notable guest appearance from MAGENTA's own Christina Murphy who does some eerie ENIGMA-like chanting on the opening track. A nice piece of neo with a truly brilliant production.

Fans of PALLAS, IQ and ARENA will definitely want to check them out.

Erasmus Neo-Prog

Review by Aragon

2 stars What? Pink Floyd, Iq, Cyan like melodies? Where are all these? No guys i don't find nothing of these influencies here. This shouldn't stay in neoprog category because it's hard prog, almost prog metal. The neoprog elements are still present but not much. You can hear echos of Enchant for the style of singer and even for the guitars. The songs begin always in the same manner with a nice spacey keys in background, but after 2 minutes the heavy and distort guitar ruins these spacey moments and the album became very repetitive. The singer isn't my cup of tea, with this i don't want say he's bad, but don't catch my attention. He hasn't that teatrical approach im used to listen in neo/symphonic bands. I can't recomend it to everyone, but just to lover of heavy prog.

Review by b_olariu

4 stars Erasmus is an obscure band from Wales, Great Britain with only one album in their pockets. Released in 2002 named Voyage, Erasmus realy did a great job here, every piece shine, brilliant musicianship. Featuring Rob Reed on kyboards from Cyan and Magenta, he realy knew along with the rest of the musicians how to make a very pleasent and full of intristing arrangements here, great album. What stroke at first listen was the absolutely brilliant guitar parts, stunning moments full of intrsting riffs and solos made by Jayde who also happend to handle the vocal parts. Influences are from Pink Floyd, Iq, Cyan like guitar melodies, but developed very well and precise in some heavier riffing in the end, excellent moments. All the pieces are very good, not a weak moment, complex but in same time very melodic, similar with Iq for ex, but more towards heavier sound of neo prog, with unexpected turns and super guitar and keyboards interludes. In places the album sound realy rough , quite close to prog metal, but without that metalic feel, anyway the melodic side is also present that gives a special atmosphere to the album. On every piece are enough catchy moments to please every listner, I was very impressed by this band who happend not to have a single review or vote so far here, strange, because I find this Voyage album to be very strong in manner of composing, very up tempo, without weak moments, and above all the cherry on the chake some super guitar arrangements . The musicianship is above many bands from this genre neo prog, much more concise, much more intristing and songwritting is awesome. Why Erasmus are so unknown is beyond me, when they have such a great album. Easy one of the best albums from this field who desearves without hesitation 4 stars and better then 60% of the neo prog bands available on the market. Recommended for sure, they need a much more wider recognition. Similar with Arena, Iq, but aswell some Pink Floyd fans want to give a try.

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition.
