3 stars Non-regionally heavy symphonic rock from Argentina!

My first listening to Parafinal could strongly make me excited. Flyin' guitar solo, the string section holding the whole sounds strictly, and the bass and drums putting enthusiasm into listeners...wonderful sound and style I wanna say. This is the reason why I have got their eponymous album sooner and it could not betray me of course!

New - New / Danza de Ballenas, with a heavy and dark opening and plaintive bass and electric violin sounds, shows the way where this album itself should go I feel. Under the linden tree, what are they thinking with the song? On the sleeve is a picture into pieces of a linden tree - their dreams should be into pieces too...? However, the very lyrical and fruitful sounds can let us (listeners) and them (Ünder Linden) not nitpick anymore. Yea I'm sure! En La Piedad De los Dioses is exactly God's sadness shown behind us. Violin solo can lead us into a depressive but warm ground - their sounds are not only plaintive but also powerful and hopeful. On the contrary, in the next Casi Fue and El Conducto the powerful electric guitar solo can push us upstairs as well. Each song has the same flavour but a slightly different spice from others. Gravitaciones, a straight rock shot, the high tone bass solo comes to the front - and the keen violin lets the bud blossom out into a bright sunflower! Tiburon En Marcha? A shark in March? Hmm...battles with the sharp-edged violin and the laidback guitar, like a shark rushin' to a catch? Obscure meanings of the titles make us imagine more wonderfully? Sorry. But till the last Linden we should listen to the album without breathing enough well.

I shall give them two words - powerful and lyrical!
