Ancient Vision


Ancient Vision biography ANCIENT VISION is a five-piece set from Kansas City whose two albums capture the warm sounds of the 70's using today's technology and sensibilities. Since both of their albums were engineered by ex-JETHRO TULL Tim Matyear, the TULL influence is noticeable through out their material. At best, it could be described as a blend of rock, classical and (to a lesser extent) folk. After a number of personnel changes, they settled with Tom May on guitars and keyboards (he is also the mastermind of the band) Read more on Last.fm
Ancient Vision biography ANCIENT VISION is a five-piece set from Kansas City whose two albums capture the warm sounds of the 70's using today's technology and sensibilities. Since both of their albums were engineered by ex-JETHRO TULL Tim Matyear, the TULL influence is noticeable through out their material. At best, it could be described as a blend of rock, classical and (to a lesser extent) folk. After a number of personnel changes, they settled with Tom May on guitars and keyboards (he is also the mastermind of the band), Barry Spry on bass, Joe Allen also on keyboards, Rob Leythem on drums, Russ Gross on guitars and Tom Hook on vocals. Although reminiscent of TULL, their debut album "The Vision" (1991) is not really folksy; in fact, it features long melodic passages, warm Hammond organ sounds and superb Martin Barre-like electric guitar licks.

Their second release, "Focus on Blinders" (1993), continues in the same vein - with the same TULL flavour, right up to Tom Hook's muscular, gravely vocals - but it is a lot more polished and better produced. It also features guest musicians. The longer compositions, the deeper, thoughtful moments, the rich sound textures, the many rhythmic breaks, the good guitar/keyboard interplay, the tremendous synth work as well as some jazzy alto sax (courtesy of Stephen Lon Philkuos) and backing vocals by Debbie Brown all add to the magnificence of the music. Especially recommended to JETHRO TULL aficionados but fans of NOW, YEZDA URFA and CATHEDRAL (70's band) will enjoy it too. Read more on Last.fm.
