3 stars This is a Spanish band with their debut album, it sounds as harder-edged progressive rock. The guitarwork is a bit heavy, it contrasts good with the classical sound of the violin (evoking Japanese legends Outer Limits) on "Profecia" and "Preparan". The vocals are sometimes a bit raw and screamy. In "Algunos nusicos" it's rock and roll time featuring mouth organ and the titletrack reminds me of Jethro Tull (powerful guitar and swirling flute). This album contains two longer compositions that sound more symphonic. First "El juglar": it starts folky but then gradually more lush (fine Mellotron waves) and dynamic, very compelling. Then "Paraiso de flautos", indeed a paradise of flutes along wonderful violin and soaring Mellotron. The bonustrack "La explosion del universo" is pure hardrock, this was also the direction this band took after this fine progrock album.
