Editorial Reviews

Eloy FRITSCH performs an elegant electronic music that evolves between VANGELIS' ambient and impressionist style, and the synthesised Progressive rock of masters such as Rick WAKEMAN or Patrick MORAZ. With "Space Music" (2000), the APOCALYPSE's brazilian keyboards player goes into parts that are worthy of those last two virtuosos. With "Mythology" (2002), he refines his style which is more impressionist and majestic. This ambitious work justly uses the whole panel of his electronic sounds to depict fifteen tracks exclusively dedicated to the different gods worshipped in the past. The Mesopotamian, Hindu, Amerindian, Inca, African, Greek, Egyptian, Scandinavian, Roman or Chinese are outlined here by an instrumental composition. Thanks to his panoply of keyboards and computers, Eloy FRITSCH has been able to free his imagination. He leads us in a very relaxing trip, in the fantastic world of mythology. After "Landscapes" (2003), the next album is a great one: from the start, the well-named "Atmosphere - Electronic Suite" evokes the excellent "Heaven And Hell" (VANGELIS) opus, with emphatic choirs and majestic orchestral parts. The opus reveals once again the Eloy FRITSCH's ecological convictions. He presently defends the virtues of the gas envelope that allow everyone to live on Earth: the Atmosphere. Take your tickets to the ocean of happiness ! "Landscapes" (2005) continues the story in the great Eloy FRITSCH's tradition. "Past And Future Sounds 1996-2006" is the first best-of of Eloy FRITSCH. One can find twelve of the greatest tracks from his discography, plus four new titles recorded especially for the occasion. The best way to discover the artist's musical universe...

I've known eletronic music for some time now, and always knew its relationship with progressive rock. But no experience I've had with those kinds of music could prepare me to the journey that was listening to Eloy Fritsch's "Mythology".
From one end of the album to another, Eloy manages to use his extensive knowledge of eletronic music and his experiences with progressive rock to create the perfect amount of moods and vibes as this fifteen themes would need.
Where books fail to pass us the experience of meeting or even believing in any one of this albun's myths, Eloy's music comes in and suddenly you are sure that they truely exist.
"Mythology" is a great conceptual record that shows that an albun can have many different sounds but still relate to one single subject.

After releasing such magnificient albuns as "Dreams"(1995), "Behind The Walls Of Imagination"(1997), "Space Music"(1998) and "Cyberspace"(2000) it seemed impossible to create something even better than the previous recordings. Since "Cyberspace", Eloy have been studying themes related to mythology and composing to this cd, recorded at the beautiful brazilian beach Garopaba. All sounds were done by the musician's synthesizers, but they sound as real as a true guitar, bass, drum, flute, chords or choir voices.
Mythology's first impression couldn't be better. Everything was done in a very careful way, from the art sleeve from the production(by Eloy). Umbeline Barreto, a PhD in visual arts reached a result which is difficult to see in similar releases. The drawing is simply fantastic joined by synthetic, but revealing, texts about each mythological symbol which inspired the track wrote in Portuguese and English.
There are also photos of the artist performing live, besides a little text explaining the meaning of the album similar to what Rick Wakeman have done in his classic 73 "Six Wives Of Henry VIII" album. Overall there are a 18 page art sleeve printed in great quality.
This is, undoubtley, the most complete and diversified album of Eloy Fritsch's discography. It rages from the emotion and softness of tracks like "Aphrodite" and "Excalibur" from more rocking pieces like "Assur" and "Jupiter". An album like this makes us proud and enthusiastic with the talent of whom, besides difficulties(there are many), fights with strengh to promote his music and never give up of his dreams.
Talking about this: what would be left to a man if he loses his capacity of dreaming? The best way to do this is listening to one of the best records of the year.

Mithology has a whole production by Eloy Fritsch, and is fantastic the way how him does it.
All the progressive rock, eletronic music, rock lovers and who has ecletic taste for music should get Mithology as a new progressive music conception.
Fritsch has researched a lot about technology applied to music, and the results we can find in this amazing CD. A perfect sinchronism between the instruments and the timbres gives a unique quality to this album.
I'm sure about Eloy Fritsch when it comes to music quality.
