Artnat was formed by lead guitarist of the known Tantra prog group from Portugal, Manuel Cardoso. The mirrored effect in the name reflects the continuity of Tantra´s symphonic prog style of music. With high compositional levels and wild experimental themes this is a colorful, multi ambiance work with top-level musicians, but with no technical show off. Just plain excellent and meaningful music! The album The Mirror Effect was actually released today and Bandcamp is the place to listen to Artnat!
Artnat is a new prog rock band that strives for high quality art prog voyaging from awesome musical landscapes to experimental jam like ambiances.
«Always in the expectancy of a personalized style and with a beautiful female voice leading the powerful instrumental sound we, the band, hope to have achieved our goal of making beautiful, experimental and original quality progressive art rock».
Manuel Cardoso is the undisputed leader of the band but he is joined by Tantra synthesizer’s player Gui Da Luz and three other very clever musician. Sara Freitas has a beautiful and clean and crystal clear and she handle the often complex music very, very good. Da Luz deliver many atmospheric synth tones and as a bonus they are often eerie and varied and interweaving with the guitar.
