3 stars Post Mortem are a band from Argentina and this is their first full-length album (having released an EP previously). The vocals are in Spanish while the music is not extremely metallic. There is some metal for sure but the music sounds as much like symphonic 'rock' as it does symphonic 'metal'. "Plan" is a great opener. I like the synth tones used here. Nice faux choir sounds before the vocals begin, which return throughout. "Pais" features guests on saxophone which adds to the sound. The vocal harmonies here are well done, being mixed with the 'clean' guitar sound and snare rim hitting.

"Él sabe" is a ballad with little distorted guitar. The ten minute title track opens with the sound of coins spinning. Nice piano and acoustic guitar starts things off. After awhile some mid- paced prog metal with nice faux string sounds. The music gets busier and more varied as it goes along. "Postludio" is a nice end to the album. A melodic and easy-going 'prog metal' track . It features overdubbed spoken word and a children's toy instrument at the end.

These guys are fairly new and this is their first full-length, so as good as this album is I think they still got some better ones in them yet. The sax in "Pais" and the vocal harmonies and spoken word parts separate them from your average prog metal band. The singing, although in Spanish, can remind one of some Italian prog bands. Overall a decent effort and an enjoyable listen. I will give this 3 stars(good but not essential).
