Despite a name strongly relying on vintage PINK FLOYD, ECLIPSE owes a lot to another British dinosaur of the Seventies-era: YES. This new Brazilian band mixes the so-called South-American symphonism with a personal vision, filled with enthusiasm, of the Anglo-Saxon Progressive rock. The fluid guitar soli played by Aloisio CAMPELO Jr strongly remind Steve HOWE (Jazz influenced), and keyboardist-bassist Paulo TORRES displays melodic lines Chris SQUIRE would have been proud of. The whole is performed with an excellent quality. With such an introduction, one could fear "Jumping From Springboards" (2003) will be a copy of "Fragile" or "Close To The Edge". No way ! The four musicians know how to go beyond their influences: some sequences could evoke as well CAMEL, HATFIELD AND THE NORTH (Guitar player Patricia DESCHAMPS' singing is sometimes close to Amanda PARSONS'), Mike OLDFIELD, VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR… And PINK FLOYD ! To conclude, let's say that ECLIPSE has the true ability to become the new leader of the Brazilian Progressive rock scene. Don't miss it !
