Altas at Syntax Physic Opera – 01/23/2015


This past Friday night I stopped by one of my favorite venues in Denver (Syntax Physic Opera) to catch a set by one of my favorite bands in Denver (Altas).  You pretty much can’t ask for a better Friday evening, right?

Altas goes beyond the conventional walls of instrumental rock. Their most recent release (Epoca De bestias) is a masterful effort that deserves your full attention.  However, you cannot stop there.  To really experience Altas, you need to see them live.  And I don’t use the word ‘experience’ generically because an Altas live set is exactly that…an encompassing experience of both sense and emotion.  Their songs are comprised of warm textures, lucid fluidity and a steady melodic bed laying upon a forceful, driving and powerful rock foundation.  Altas should definitely be on the top of your ‘must-see’ list.

Altas will be performing next at the Hi-Dive in Denver on 3/14/2015
