Rather overlooked short-lived Argentinian band with a very rich and complex heavy rock sound.They were formed at the end of 1972,while in August of 1973 they started recording their debut.The eponymous release was published a year later,while AVE ROCK were touring in Argentina.Influenced by the likes of DEEP PURPLE and pushing their skills to the limit,AVE ROCK presented a powerful album full of time changes and alternating tempos with a touch of psych and symhonic rock.The work on Hammond organ recalls heavily early-70's DEEP PURPLE's,while the sound of the guitar is very psychedelic.Their style easily turns from dynamic rhythms to sensitive organ-based themes and from bluesy-rock parts to complicated GENTLE GIANT-like progressive rock.Vocals are sporadic,this is mostly an instrumental album filled with a thousand music colors and should please every fan of organ-based classic progressive rock.A strongly-recommended little treasure!
