ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Although Moving Atlas has only been together since early 2005, the roots that make up this band run long and deep. Guitarist Ricky Dansby came across drummer Matt Baker while both were in different projects but playing at the same venue in the mid '90s. Ricky and Matt started hanging out together and eventually started their own band. In the late '90s they had to replace their bassist and contacted Geoff Lucke. Ricky had heard about Geoff from the local scene and knew he was looking for a band. After playing together in several versions of this project and never reaching their goals, each member eventually went in their own direction.

In 2004, Ricky met guitarist Ben Scott. Ben had been working on a lot of his own original music and had several song ideas for Ricky to listen to. The two played together for a couple of months, creating several acoustic songs and learning each other's writing styles. Ricky soon contacted Geoff to see if he would be interested in allowing them to showcase their new music. After hearing the two play, Geoff instantly knew this was the next musical project for him. After spending a couple of months as a trio, the three tightened up their music and polished their new sound.

The band's next step was to find a drummer. Returning to their roots, they contacted Matt Baker. Like Geoff, Matt knew after listening to the three others play that he wanted to be part of this kind of music. With four musical pieces now in place, the band members spent the next couple of months playing together and refining their sound.

In early 2006, Moving Atlas started auditioning singers. From the first moment Dunagin Gaines started ad-libbing to the band's array of music, everyone knew he was the missing piece that completed the evolution of Moving Atlas. After three practice sessions, the band set out to play its first gig and was overwhelmed by the response. Watch for great things to happen for this band!

Worth listening to over and over again
This CD is worth listening to over and over again. Everytime I play it I get more out of it.

Clint Bolina

A nice piece of work
I was blown away by this CD and cant seem to get it out of my cd player. I was a fan before, but this is on a different level!!!

Jeff Drake

Nice sound with a great edge
Glad to see it finally come out and sound as good as it does live. If you like the Tool-Chevelle-Incubus sound then you should grab this one up...Watch for these guys nationally soon.

Reggie Peterson

Best Band in Big D
Great music!! Hands down, the best Dallas has to offer!!!!

Moving Atlas = awesome!
I heard of Moving Atlas from a Texan band called Faktion. It was right after they had lost their drummer Matt Baker. I started talking with one of the band members online and proceeded to listen to their music. Their sound is unreal and produces so much emotion. So, I bought the cd online and have been excited about it ever since. You can definately hear who has influenced them musically, but they are still able to form their own sound. Check it out!

GOOD FROM FRONT TO BACK
I can listen to this CD all the time, and in my book that makes it good. It never seems to bore me. I highly reccomend the purchase of this cd.

The CD showed up in great shape! Moving Atlas is a great band, thanks for you help CD baby!

Mark Beneventi

strong, important and catchy
Writing and dedicating a disc to American troops is risky, given the potential for a perception of exploitation. This disc stands up to any and all scrutiny, however. Et al is a powerful blend of metal, prog and emo that accomplishes something unusual - it has songs that are strong, important and catchy at the same time.
A dark, Tool-like vibe runs throughout the disc (the result of some incredible percussion), but songs like “Bread and Meat,” “Lay Down and Die” and “Smooth as Ivory Tongue” affirm that all darkness will pass. The recording (Crystal Clear Sound) is primo, getting the band some notice from Dallas’ KDGE, along with 15,000 MySpace friends. Moving Atlas has delivered some of the best, well-written rock music of the year.

Took me on a trip.............
This CD, from my point of view has the potential of grabbing the listener and never letting go. I've been around the Dallas music scene for many years, and this disc stands tall next to any and all the greats that have come out of Dallas. I highly reccomend this cd .
