3 stars Dark in the relationship to listener, that's Dos Mil Anos De Tierra, first track. It's rhythmic, it flows, it has raw energy (as in case of Metal for example, but far more moderated in this case). What I meant by this metaphor is that there's usually dark themed riff (sometimes riffs) used prominently on this album.

And we continue in this mood through entire album. That's good. Looks like that we have multi- instrumentalist here, this helps, however, I'm not sure if he's using electronic form of drumming or not.

Anyway, in case of "one-man" band, it's normal, so this foul act is overlooked. And it sounds good, this drumming part, so if it's not human input (as it probably isn't), it's a good work. Force (erm, I mean bass line) is strong in this child (damn again, I mean album), as is the atmosphere.

If you by sheer luck stumble over this record, I can recommend it for virtually everyone (except those looking merely for shiny-happy kind of Symphonic). What surprised me here is the originality. Maybe it's because I'm not so used listening South (E)'merican music, but I suppose that this album is unique enough and pleased me to extent where I can give it

4(+), as it will please you as well I hope.
