Atavachron is the fourth studio album by guitarist Allan Holdsworth, released in 1986 through Enigma Records United States and JMSCream Records Europe. The album's title and seventh track, as well as the cover art, are references to the Atavachron alien time travel device from the Star Trek episode All Our Yesterdays. Atavachron marks Holdsworth's first recorded use of the SynthAxe, an instrument which would be featured prominently on many of his future albums. Allan Holdsworth. IDOL Distribution от лица компании Cream Records BMI - Broadcast Music Inc. Metal Fatigue is by far Holdsworth's best solo album and Atavachron is certainly a disappointment in comparison. Indeed, comparing this album to anything else Holdsworth had made up to that point that I have heard, solo or in different bands, this comes off as rather weak. However, this is also very different in style so maybe it is not fair or even possible to really compare in this way. Holdsworth's backup weapon: the synthaxe, makes it's debut here, which compliments the music nicely although it just sounds like a keyboard and a stunning female vocalist adds a nice twist to the music in the later tracks, singing those off notes that Holdsworth specialises in. Although not AS accessable as his previous album: metal fatigue, some of Holdsworth's trickiest leads are featured here, and puts other guitarists to shame, in a very English way. It wouldn't be unusual for the keyboard player to play about 10 key changes in the space of a second in an Allan holdsworth composition Slight exaggeration there. What was unique was that guitarists could therefore play a synthesizer without needing a great amount of keyboard expertise. The SynthAxe was the interface that very uniquely interpreted a guitarist's skill into synth sounds. For guitarist Allan Holdsworth, it was yet a whole new way to achieve the sounds unvoiced in his soul in ways he just couldn't do with a standard guitar. Holdsworth has always sought a horn-like voicing with the ability to manipulate a note in a myriad of ways.
