Music review from Progressiove&Metall Music e-zine for album 'All Day Home' (in English)

Music review from Progressiove&Metall Music e-zine for album

ROMISLOKUS - 'All Day Home'
Romislokus started in 1998 in Kirov, Russia. Yuri Smolnikov was born in 1955 in the Ural region, Russia. Studying hydrology at Hydrometeorological Institute in Odessa he organized his first rock band. They played classic rock music. In 1980 he began to compose his own music and lyrics. He was lucky to cooperate with many Russian musicians. Against this background in Zaporozhye (Ukraine) in 1981 he also organized his first experimental rock - laboratory specializing in the training of young rock musicians. He developed his own original educational program. Evgeniy Gorelov and Mikhail Voronov began their music carriers in one and the same band in 1994. The name of this band was 'The Ocean'. They played soft and art rock. They also took part in some other musical projects… Romislokus was created as a result of the willingness of all of the musicians to experiment in the field of progressive rock. Another idea was to combine the elements of art rock and electronic music. For this purpose Maksim Platunov (computer) was invited to join the project. Since then the rhythmic basis of the songs has been programmed with the help of a computer. Romislokus took part in several independent musical festivals in Russia that were mostly organized by musicians themselves and with Romislokus as a headliner. They were ready to record a lot of musical material. Romislokus received good reviews from all over the globe and independent radio air in USA, Canada, Norway, Mexico, Australia, Belgium and other countries. By the end of 2001 most of Romislokus moved to Moscow, where Dmitriy Shelemetev (drums) and Anna Goya (violin, vocal) were invited to take part in the work on a new album. Here they are again, more professional than before, one of the most important revelations, where easily blends elements of the 'Techno Ambient Electronic', 'Experimental' and Progressive Rock from musical scene today. Beside others famous new bands, Romislokus have created a very special musical signature, easily recognized by the instrumental arrangements, including eletronic programing computer. One of the highlights of this special band are all the electronic textures, where to became indispensable parts to the all compositions, decorated with nice keyboards and guitar sounds, and also with the cello notes, because of the high quality musicians, all vocals are singing in Russian and fit perfect with the music. 'All Day Home' it can be considered as a musical sequence of the last productions named 'Between Two Mirrors' recorded in 2001 and 'Vinyl Spring, Digital Autumn' finished in February, 2002, where we can find the same energy from the previous songs. A special and particular attention to and my favourite songs are: 'Dreg', 'L'amour' (in French - One Of The Best), 'If', 'Freedom', 'Persici' (in Italian), 'Tree By The Wall' and 'Captain Zero'. At that moment the Romislokus are: Evgeniy Gorelov - Keyboards, Mikhail Voronov - Guitars, Yuri Smolnikov - Rhythm-Guitar and Vocal, Dmitriy Shelemetev - Drums, Maksim Platunov - Computers, Mikhail Brovarnik - Bass and Irina Yunakovskaya - Cello. Excellent and indispensable work, highly recommendable…

March, 2003.
