Profile Atlantis Airport formed by vocalist Peter Urfer in 1990 and offer a fantastic Aor/Pomp with some Westcoast influences album released in 1992 by ZYT Records and produced by Lorenz Hirni and Thomas Gfeller. This album mixes Aor/Pomp ala 2Hot4U, Dominoe, with some West Coast style of brass arangements. Known by only a few, and very hard to get hold of, every true fan of Aor should have this album in their collection.

Songs that stand out is the atmospheric “Ride To Atlantis” that open the record combining a feast between saxophone and dolphin sound effects. Really impressive and a great introduction to the album’s title song “By Nature” having a harmony melody, pompus keys and great chorus filled by a piano solo. “Dolphin Eyes” is another highlight with a progressive touch as the funky “Soul Surfer”. The gloomy ballad “If I Change My Mind” with great piano work overall and the powerful “Master Of The Game” with really impressive keys give a pomp dimencion to the song before blown you with the catchy chorus. The band split up in 1994.
