Biography

ARACHNOÏD is a French major progressive band whose music was combined the strengths of other French symphonic groups and dark progressive rock that recalled King Crimson. The dark sound, almost like Univers Zero, is accomplished mostly by melodic structures in the vein of King Crimson’s “Larks’ Tongues In Apic” and dramatical vocals similar to that of Christian DECAMPS from Ange. ARACHNOÏD’s music express a continuous tension with flashing guitar’s parts and tormented keyboards interventions. A unique band with nods to King Crimson, Pulsar, Shylock & Pink Floyd!

ARACHNOÏD’s 1978 self-titled album is one of France’s finest progressive albums of the 70’s, but not classic. The first four tracks of the seven original are the best, but also the most complicated and intriguing. Classically-inspired instrumentals, but their vocalist is weak. Recommended for all adventurous progters!
