3 stars Iceberg were one of the best attractions in the Spanish Prog scene. They were generally appreciated as a jazz-rock/fusion band, but on debut album "Tutankhamon" they play rather a good symphonic music. Here the band shows an interesting blend of keyboards themes and strong guitar riffs, whit the good support of the singer, especially in a couple of dreaming ballads, for example "Lying in the sand". As the title says, it's a concept album about the famous pharaoh and the general atmosphere is obviously dense of mistery and dark instrumental passages. There is a lot of mellotron, and electric piano too, but the guitar player is the real focus in the best moments of the album. "Sacerdotes de Amon" is the most complex track, including a strong sax presence in the guitar-keyboards interplays. Altough the Iceberg fame is connected to following jazz-rock album, the high level of the musicians makes "Tutankhamon" a very pleasant effort of this talented band.
