Dogma - Album (1992)
The debut album from this band from Brazil.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums and keyboards.
A violinist helped out on a track too.
Dogma was one of those bands from Brazil who gave us instrumental prog. That is what we get on this album, indeed.
Some has called this album an instrumental neo-prog album. And I can see why. There is indeed a lot sound and music which reminds us about neo-prog. The sound itself is neo-prog.
The music is mostly symphonic prog. Bands like Camel and The Enid springs to mind. So does Genesis. But also the local band Sagrado Coracao Da Terra springs to mind.
There is a lot of wonderful bass here. There is also some good pianos and keyboards. This though is a guitars based album with long solos.
The end result is a one hour long album. It has not the most exciting music out there unless you are a big fan of instrumental prog.
Then again, this is a good album and one of the better ones in this scene.
This is indeed an album well worth checking out and I am looking forward to reviewing their second and final album in some days/one week's time.
