3 stars Viuda Negra is a young progressive metal band from Ecuador releasing so far two albums. This is their second release from 2007 named La voz de los Bosques. I like how this band plays here, with balls, fat sound, great druming and very good vocalist. The pieces sounds fresh, is obvious that they play for pleasure here, lots of great guitar chops who interlude very strong with the keybords. I like a lot the vocalist - Santiago Silva - he has a good range, very capable vocalist who can mannage to make some jaw dropping moments like on - Instintos, Jardín de las Delicias or Requiem. What I like more is that the band sounds very good singing in his native language - spanish, like Lacrimosa for ex sounds brilliant in german language. Well now the best musician from this band to me is the drumer - Johnny Gordon, while is not having the most complex moves and beats you ever heared on a progressive metal band, he is very sure of the instrument, he plays with vein, I like him a lot, he is also present on Hittar Cuesta solo album, great aswell there. So, a good band, I really like their sound, but not really something soecial, only good album in this field who desearve 3 solid stars. Sometimes they sound like Polimetro, another prog metal band from South America who needs attention. Worth investigate , specially this album, they have a future ahead in this realm.
