After @ All - Chameleon - 2000
"We don't like our music being labelled,
therefore we use a new category we created:
f u t u r o c k
to describe our unique, futuristic, progressive (really pointing forward) modern-rock music"
After @ All is a Hungarian band founded in 1996. After "To many, peace is " (1997), "acolorindark" CD-single (1998), "Power Hung(a)ry" (1999), "ACID LP" (2001) they released another CD-single: "Chameleon".
Oláh Szabolcs - vocal, percussion, programming Csontos Krisztián - guitars, vocal, programming Czapár János - keyboard, sampling Raffay Zsolt - bass Nagy Viktor - drums.
The CD opens with King Crimson guitars in the track "Synthetic" but after 30 seconds all hell breaks loose with fast and hard guitars and a singer who is screaming. I don't like this shit (Grunt vocals). It is a mix of heavy metal with the complexity of King Crimson and some art rock/prog keyboard sounds. The second track "Chameleon" opens with keyboard-piano combined with the King Crimson like guitars and the song develops into an up tempo song with vocals sung in the James Labrie style of Dream Theater. I like this song better than the first one but I prefer to play one of my Dream Theater albums. Both songs are also in an "edit" version on this CD-single.
