2 stars Another free download album, I gather. It is ages since I got this album, but I guess it is still a free download.


Trying to describe the sound of this band is a bit difficult. They are somewhere between Radiohead (a large dosage), Iron Maiden and Nirvana. Add some unassuming shoe gazing vocals and you get this band...... somehow.

I reviewed one of their two EPs too and found little to appreciate there. The same goes for this, their latest album too. The Radiohead/Iron Maiden/Nirvana pastisj is featureless and is drudging along in the bottom of a valley. The music frankly remains me about one of the more barren mountain landscapes in Spain, where this band comes from, with it's barren sound. Electric guitars are well used here. Both metal heavy guitars and in a more restrained acoustic like fashion. The drums and bass is in the background, without adding much water to this barren desert. The dull, mumbling shoe gazing vocals also add sand to the desert. I guess this is called post rock. There are some good attempts here and there spread over this album. But most of this album barren and dull. I prefer a life in the mountains instead of this album, I am afraid. But the post rock fans out there should check this album out.
