4 stars What a great finding, and right around the corner! Meet Ekos, a young and promising mexican progressive rock band that started out as a Pink Floyd tribute, but due to the talent of its members soon began writing their own songs. Although the influence of several bands can be noticed they have definetly developed a sound of their own. They have just released Luz Interna (Inner Light), their debut album, and what a debut it is! It starts with "Obscuridad" (Darkness) and right from the start you can appreciate their musical skills, Ana Camelo's keyboards and Jesus Torres' guitar are the highlights of this track, supported by the strong foundation of Victor Juarez on bass and Ricardo Castro on drums. This song has a very strong ending which contrasts perfectly with the next songs: "Luz Interna" (Inner Light), Mutacion (Mutation) and "Rostro Oculto" (Hidden Face) which show the sensitive aspect of the band and give us a chance to appreciate their vocal skills. Once again we have intense playing on "La Huida Del Infierno" (The Escape From Hell), an instrumental that sets us for the grand finale, the epic "Apocalipsis" (Apocalypse), which showcases the characteristic aspects of the band: shifting moods that start with quiet sections that slowly transform into agressive and extended soloing and back again to parts that induce us to reflection. In general a strong debut for these young and cultivated musicians who already have quite an important following in Mexico City and its suburbs, playing concerts almost every weekend. It is worth to keep an eye on them! Four stars.
