R-U Kaiser - Ocelos (2007) (Symphonic Prog) (Chile)
The embryonic period of R-U KAISER (a German visionary in the early Seventies) began in the early 2000s as a shared idea of drummer Oscar Arias and singer/keyboardist Pilar Núñez. Later on, Mario Pizarro "Morus" makes his entrante as the main keyboardsman, and so do bassist Lino Oré and guitarist Pablo Lizana. All this took place in Antofagasta. The idea of a symphonic rock ensemble was increasingly enhanced by the band with the incorporation of members on flute, violin, cello, classical guitar, etc. This particular enterprise was doomed to be inconsistent, but it helped the band to mature its vision as it moved to Santiago, in order to expand its dissemination opportunities. Their music reamined well rooted in the symphonic prog trend with its "constrained" instrumentation of guitar-bass-drums-2 keyboards. With the entrance of Bárbara Wilson as a second female singer (a contralto who complements Pilar's soprano range) and Pablo doubling on guitar and bass, R-U KAISER finally achieved the line-up set to record their debut concept-album "Ocelos", which has been released by Watcher Records in November 2007. The recording sessions were intermittent, starting in 2006 and finishing it in half 2007; meanwhile, the band had been introducing their "Ocelos" material to audiences in various concerts. The band attained a loyal following in the last two years.
- Highly recommended to lovers of symphonic prog, the music of R-U KAISER reveals influences from classic WAKEMAN, UK, GLASS HAMMER, and it also bears relative similarities to their compatriots of ENTRANCE and MATRAZ.
