Formed in 2014 in Moscow, ATON FIVE is a four-piece instrumental band with a fresh perspective on various Progressive Rock, Classic Rock, and Psychedelic Rock trends of the 70's. In 2015, the band self-released their debut EP "Long Forgotten Tales" which was followed in 2017 by live mini-album "Live At Mars" and in 2018 by their first full-length "Solarstalgia". In early 2019, ATON FIVE signed up with R.A.I.G. Records to release their recordings on real CDs for worldwide distribution.
The band's current line-up features: Alexander Seleznev on guitars, Mikhail Zenkov on bass, Dmitry Smirnov on drums, and Daniil Bosak on keyboards. Follow ATON FIVE on Facebook.
R.A.I.G. Records present a CD re-release (9 tracks – 76 min.) of ATON FIVE's first full-length album "Solarstalgia" supplemented with two live bonus tracks that were originally on the digital only mini-album "Live At Mars". All music was written and performed by Daniil Bosak (keyboards, synths), Alexander Seleznev (guitars, percussion), Dmitry Smirnov (drums), and Mikhail Zenkov (bass, percussion) with guest appearance of Anton Ablov (organ). Recorded at Mars Records studios. Engineered by Michael EaRen and Dmitry Zaytsev. Artwork by Mila Kiseleva. Recommended for connoisseurs of melodic and nuanced instrumental Heavy-Prog-Rock with vigorous and virtuosic electric guitar-vs-organ duels, enchanting soloing, fuzzed out riffs, hypnotic basslines, driving drums, and spicy sci-fi psychedelic fleur.
Free streaming or immediate digital download of the album (MP3, FLAC or other formats) is available through Official R.A.I.G. Bandcamp.
