5 stars This must be one of the best combination i've ever heard definitely. Flamenco meets metal in a brutal way. But that feeling when you heard the claps and heel sound of flamenco dancers, brutality sounds so sweet and easygoing. I am little bit suprised when i saw Flametal here, not because i think their progress process in music is enough progressive for here. It's certain but for sure, i think, this is not their purpose and i don't see the band labelled progressive before. But their progressive vision as natural as men's erection. Harmony between flamenco and metal guitars, speed and technique with never ending melodious riches. After i listened this album each time, i am asking for more. For this stuff there are some similarities between composing music and writing book. This album could be complete mess if track list were different. I don't think they thought a lot for which song should be the first one; The Elder gives us an opinion about occurrence that we got involved and probably this opinion is for the beginners. And the elder is very succesfull about it. Next one Silencio, Escobilla shows wildest and very fragile side of flamenco at the same time. Red Cobblestone is like continuation of the fist song Elder. As Bruja Tortura which is like continuation of Silencio, Escobilla. Bruja Tortura's dose is increased. Next two songs P'alla Al Inferno Vas and The Summoning are last chapter of flamenco & metal association because you can imagine there is a something like war between them in Cuatro Caballeros. Sometimes peaceful and quiet and than lack of concession and harmony. Excellent. I was not sure about the ending happy or sad when i was listening the last song Journey Into Fear. But when i learn new album is on the way. I got that. Can't wait for listen the new record which already released. It was another suprising moment for me to learn Marty Friedman (Megadeth) played for the album as special guest. As the name implies Flametal. Give it a chance. You've never heard something like this before.
