Equinox biography
When one thinks of progressive rock, their thoughts normally go back to their roots in Europe with bands like Genesis, Yes, and King Crimson. The thing we love about progressive music is how in reaches in and grabs a hold of us--it's widespread. Admittedly, the audience isn't vast, but we're passionate. And that passion is alive and well in Central America.

Bassist Alan Pinzón and keyboardist Jorge Pérez formed Equinox in 1997 soon after establishing Medallón Cósmico Records. Adding guitarist Alcibiades "Chivale" Villarreal and drummer Cesar Rodríguez, Equinox made their debut at the Balboa Theater in Panama City, co-headlining the show with Cast. Cast then invited the band to participate in the Baja Progressive Festival which took place in March at Mexicalli, Baja California, Mexico.

Equinox released their self-titled debut in 1998 to some pretty favorable reviews. The music had a sort of 'funkiness' that sounded refreshing and was borderline fusion meets hard rock.

In 2000 Equinox returned with Spirits Of Freedom, and unlike the debut, this album is sung primarily in Spanish. Additionally, only the founding members remained from the debut. Enter drummer Iván Canton, guitarist Pedro Caicedo, and new female singer, Dalys Toruño. With all of the differences from the debut, Spirits Of Freedom failed to hit it's mark. Ed Sander of DPRP said of the follow up that it was like "taking three steps back. A real shame because the former line-up really showed some potential."

Given that the band hasn't produced anything in over 7 years leads me to believe that they've hung it up. Anything could happen; however, if it is over then it's sad that they had to leave on a low note.

Equinox Neo-Prog

Review by progrules
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Well, if you ever want to hear a model example of a neo progressive album this debut by Equinox might be an excellent pick. This is what obvious neo sounds like. Melodic songs, slightly emotional vocals, lots of guitar solos and keyboard displays. Even the fact the vocals aren't quite up par is somewhat typical for this subgenre. I mean, Marco Linares tries very hard to be a fine vocalist but it's just not there most of the time.

And then we come to another famous feature of neo prog: the compositions and instrumental handling are much better, as is so often the case. Very nice long/extended instrumental solos are significant with this band, especially on the longer tracks. And they please me a lot I can tell you.

They even make me doubt pretty hard to give four stars ultimately but I'm afraid that's just a little bit too much. I'd say the two longest songs are definitely worthy of 4 stars but the other tracks combined with the flaws this band and album have are just not impressive enough for this high score. I think 3 stars is more adequate added with the remark it's actually 3,4.

Review by luile3

4 stars "EQUINOX" is a band from PANAMA and is an excelent band. This is their first and best cd. The sound and production are very clear. The playing is first rate. A very very good progresive record with some of the songs being very melodic (and pop). You can hear influences of YES and SANTANA. Maybe even Styx... This band is not easy to categorize because it blends sounds and influences to create their own. They have played with BANCO, PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI & CAST among others.

Equinox Neo-Prog

Review by Marcelo
Prog Reviewer

2 stars Neo-prog band with some interesting songs but many neo cliches. Electric guitar and synths are the main instruments, and there are some cosmic and atmospheric sounds, remaining sometimes a little bit of PINK FLOYD, adding crazy guitar riffs.

Three negative points: The female singer (Dalys Toruño sings in Spanish and she has a high range, but there's no beauty in her voice), the songs structure (changing music, but not too much elaborated) and the cd sound quality (poor). The album highlights are "El Color De Tu Sangre" and "Fall Into Imaginary Worlds". The homonymous track is nice too.

If you are into neo-prog and want to know a band from Panama, check this out, although my own impression about "Spirits Of Freedom" isn't the best.

Thanks to ProgLucky; Eric for the artist addition.
