Zoltan biography
Outstanding trio coming from London, in the realms of moody cinematic synthscapes, inspiring vintage proggy soundword. The missing link between Goblin, Fabio Frizzi, Stelvio Cipriani, Clearlight and John Carpenter with a touch of of alien-like sounding electronic psych instrumentalism. They release their first masterful blissed-out heavy rockin electronic album on Cineploit.

Tombs of the Blind Dead
Zoltan Progressive Electronic

Review by Aussie-Byrd-Brother
Special Collaborator Rock Progressivo Italiano Team

— First review of this album —
4 stars Zoltan are a UK trio who cross Goblin-like eerie synth sounds with progressive-electronic atmospheres. They put out a phenomenal debut back in 2012 with `First Stage Zoltan' (an album in serious need of more attention), and they've followed it up over the last couple of years with the full-length `Sixty Minute Zoom' in 2014 and a series of EP's of interpretations of obscure horror movie soundtracks. First up was 2013's `Psychomania' from 1972 ("The greatest and grooviest British zombie biker movie ever made" boasts the DVD cover, surely a crowded sub-genre!) and offered an adaption of music from the `Phantasm' movies in 2016, a series that always had an incredible Mellotron-driven theme to rank alongside the best horror movie scores. But in between in 2014 came this tribute LP to a series of cult horror films, one that works as both a respectful companion piece to the films its based on, but also stands as a creeping and eerie progressive-electronic, experimental/ambient and darkly symphonic work in its own right.

`Tombs of the Blind Dead' was a Spanish-Portuguese film from 1972 that spawned three sequels and revolved around a group of reanimated Templar Knight corpses hunting down victims who have stumbled upon the ruins of an abandoned monastery where they were buried. The corpses are blind, because their eyes were pecked out by birds while their hanged bodies rotted on the gallows after being put to death for witchcraft and heresy in the 14th century! The first film is the iconic one, and although its probably not a particularly coherent or even well-acted example of the genre (but forget the acting, tune in for the small role from gorgeous actress María Elena Arpón, who went by the stage name of Helen Harp in this particular film, a stunning girl!), the unique concept coupled with fascinating slow motion footage of the corpses shuffling through the ruins tracking down their victims by sound alone proved deeply hypnotic, and it had a shocking and violent finale where the Knights raid a train full of innocent people. The sequels were hit and miss but all had their moments, and they enjoy a small but devoted following amongst horror movie fanatics.

Zoltan's vinyl only EP of the same name adapts four pieces, one from each film. Opener `Tombs of the Blind Dead' is a brooding storm of groaning gothic cries and cutting Mellotron slices over a constant stop/start monolithic pounding drumbeat, and `Return of the Blind Dead' is a trudging Mellotron theme over dreamy electric piano shimmers. The urgent and up-tempo `The Ghost Galleon' races along with thick chugging bouncing bass and psychedelic bleeding electronics sounding not unlike the final minutes of `Dr. Frankenstein' off Goblin's classic `Roller' album from 1976, and `Night of the Seagulls' opens as a lurking nightmarish soundscape of faraway creeping spectral organ and humming fuzzy droning distortion before lurching into an infernal plodding early King Crimson-like searing Mellotron march - intense stuff!

`Tombs of the Blind Dead' will appeal to dark prog freaks who enjoyed Morte Macabre's 1998 Mellotron-fuelled classic `Symphonic Holocaust', the classic albums of Goblin and fans of Fabio Frizzi's soundtrack works. Most of the tracks are more chilling sound collages than actual tunes, but it all works to great effect and maintains a consistently gloomy, disorientating and overwhelming atmosphere, with the stylish sleeve notes and a striking vinyl presentation overall making for a very alluring set. Resistance is futile, simply give in and be consumed by the Blind Dead!

Four stars.

3 stars That retro feeling lingers on.

UK's ZOLTAN conformed by keyboardist Andy Thompson, bassist/keyboardist/guitarist Matt Thompson and drummer Andrew Prestidge, released in 2014 "Sixty Minute Zoom". This trio announces proudly its connection to film oriented music rootings but for us prog electronic followers, long gone HELDON's like style will turn out to be a close to home best reference. In fact if such a thing as a French Progressive Electronic sub-genre existed in this PA's electronic archives, this release certainly will fit in. Kind of strange and funny that a UK's band sounds French.

Anyway, cinematic music, in my opinion, has got to have doses of drama, yet be enticing and imageless at the same time. Too much ado about nothing certainly adds nothing. So let me introduce you to this work, Zoltan's second release (not counting a previous EP).

Music composition wise, as they advertise, do not expect a unique or detached from influences, musical language. Its creative energy is focused into performing already done ideas and blending these influences into an entertaining, unpretentious, somewhat innocent Electronic Rock trio album.

The good news is that now you privileged reader will know before acquiring this work if you find joy in a revival of retro-like 70s, early 80s French Electronic Prog nowadays. The bad news is that this band is on the making and it still sounds like that more than once. Meaning they still are not focused enough, music composition wise. as to really take a more experimental and daring dive as those HELDON guys did in their own life span, for example.

Nevertheless some amusing and creative sounds are found here and there, yet far from essential, it still promises a better release in some way or another.

***3 PA stars.

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars Unique keyboard-based Electronic/Space Prog trio from London, born in 2010 through the collaboration of brothers Andy and Matt Thomspon and drummer Andrew Prestidge.All three were experienced musicians, coming from notable bands, for example Matt Thompson was a long-time member of the Avant Rock act Guapo plus Andy runs the ''Planet Mellotron'' website.Having a collection of vintage keyboards, Andy decided to put them in use via Zoltan and in 2012 the first album of the trio ''First stage Zoltan'' was launched in vinyl and CD formats by the Cineploit label.

A nice example of dark, emphatic and cosmic Electronic Prog, ''First stage Zoltan'' is primarly led by the powerful keyboards of Andy Thompson, complemented by the drum beats of Prestidge and the decisive, marching bass lines of Matt Thompson.The use of analog synthesizers, Mellotron and spacey electronics along with the sinister, cinematic soundscapes can only be found in the old albums of GOBLIN, with whom the English trio can be best compared to.The album has a strange, rhythmic pulse, an odd electronic enviroment and a certain tense towards experimentation with double and triple keyboard and electronic manifests, broken in different variations with either bombastic or more hypnotic deliveries, but the result is always grandiose and highly atmospheric.No Classical influences or jazzy flirting, although the mighty Mellotron provides some nice orchestral tunes.This is linked more to the Horror Film soundtracks of GOBLIN or the close-connected LIBRA with just a dash of acoustic guitars, as the whole thing has been left in the hands of Andy Thompson and his mood for neurotic, haunting keyboard lines.''Black iron prison'' is a bet for the trio, offering some 14 minutes of continuous electronic experiments and keyboard flashing, the result is not always convincing, but the material is definitely impressive and atmospheric with loose segments and cosmic orientations in the vein of German EM.

For fans of Goblin, Electronic and Soundtrack Music.Ferocious keyboard masturbations of the analog era, balancing between structure and experimentation.Good and recommended stuff.

Thanks to Philippe Blache for the artist addition.
