Atila

Atila
Country
Spain
Profile
Classic 70s Spanish progressive with classical roots. Their first two LP releases were basically different versions of the same work: live and then studio, and close to the Italian classical prog style, though possibly influenced by The Nice. Their third came along much later, adding synths and a more technical space-rock edge, closer to some French bands like Artcane or Pulsar.
