ARTNAT is a new progressive rock band formed by lead guitarist and founder of the known TANTRA prog group from Portugal, Manuel Cardoso.
They just recorded their first CD / Album “The mirror effect”. The mirrored effect in the name reflects the continuity of TANTRA´s symphonic prog quality style of music.
With high compositional levels together with wild experimental themes, this is a colorful and multi ambiance work with top-level musicians, but with no technical show off.
Just plain excellent and meaningful music!

Here are some Manuel Cardoso words on the project:
“Well, after several excellent albums with TANTRA I felt that though in my heart and mind, I just felt like doing the same type of music, obviously with a natural evolution, being the only link to the original group I should use a different name. So ARTNAT just felt right… Mirrored word for an evolving music, like a mirrored dimension.
Still, to me, it’s just TANTRA´s evolution in the 21st century!”
