Review by Mellotron Storm
4 stars This is heavy, raw and experimental Psychedelic music from 1971. I don't think the record label really knew what to do with these drugged out hippies and their protest songs back in the day, so they really weren't promoted at all. This album has become one of those rare and obscure collector items as a result. They recently released 500 copies of this recording on cd with 8 bonus tracks. I got mine from "Synphonic". Thankyou Greg !

"Turpe Est Sine Crine Caput" is a psychedelic tune with pulsating organ and processed vocals. Fuzz on this one as well (hi Tom). I like the aggressive guitar 2 1/2 minutes in. "Nao Fale Com Paredes" sounds even better with the vocals shouting out the lyrics as the raw guitar rips it up. Lots of organ and drums, the latter is especially prominant 2 1/2 minutes in. "Espelho" is very psychedelic like early FLOYD. Floating organ and the vocals really fit this 60's styled music. "Le Ed Ecalg" is uptempo as organ and guitar tear it up while drums are pounded. Some heaviness late. "Olho Por Olho, Dente Por Dente" is darker with some great sounding organ, guitar and drums. Vocals join in with attitude.They do get theatrical at times. Great guitar after 3 minutes.

"Metro Mental" sounds really good with the intricate guitar and drums. It becomes psychedelic before it kicks in after 2 1/2 minutes. It gets darker after 3 minutes. Vocals before 4 minutes. Love the instrumental section before 5 1/2 minutes. "Teclados" is a short instrumental of piano and organ. I like it. "Salve-Se Quem Puder" opens with a SABBATH vibe, very dark and doom-like.The guitar, organ and vocals would definitely make BLACK SABBATH fans proud. "Animalia" is a short but cool track with different sounds coming and going. Guitar leads the way.

The next 4 bonus tracks don't even sound like the same band. They're a lot lighter and more commercial sounding. Not a big fan of these. Then we get "Curtissima" which is a big improvement. I like the bass and overall sound. This song and the next were bonus tracks on an earlier re-issue of this album. Both are quite good. The last two bonus tracks were put out by the same band in 1972 but they had changed their name by then to the LOVE MACHINE, yikes ! The lyrics are in English for both songs as well.The first song "Cancer Sticks" is an anti-smoking tune that is hilarious with this guy coughing throughout.The second "Waiting For Tomorrow" is one of the best tunes on here. Great guitar and drumming, it's a heavier track that would have fit on the original album quite well. Check out the guitar 2 minutes in !

Recommended to fans of heavy Psychedelic music.

5 stars Coming from the Brazilian underground, we have here a spectacular lost gem of space rock. Modulo 1000 only cut a single record, not even ever reuniting, but it is a killer. The record is somewhere between a hard take on space and psycadelia, and an oscillated sound that makes this a forgotten companion piece to "The United States of America" and the works of The Screamers. The latter part of the style was a wonderful surprise on first listen, and shows just how surprisingly far early experimentation with electronica managed to reach. The combination is excellent, and played to maximum skill and effect. This album is a trip through a cyberpunk "Alice In Wonderland", with fantastic guitars, drums, vocals, synths, piano, and oscillators plumbing a path through the half-electro dreamscape. If "The United States of America" and "Ash Ra Tempel" either or both excite you, then this is a perfect next listen.

3 stars Ok this record and this band has a historical importance. One of the few prog rock bands in Brazil that did record an album worth of original songs during their day and released it. It was not well promoted at the time and it´s easy to see why: the music here, a mix of Black Sabbath riffs plus some strong psychedelic keys in the vein of early Pink Floyd, is hardly what you can call commercial stuff, even for the day. Vocals are average at best with lyrics that dabbles mostly with nonsense plus a little "protest" stuff to spice it up (very little). To me the main problem is not the style but the songs themselves: unimaginative, boring and repetitive. Drugged material that may sounded great when you´re loaded, but ultimately it is just second rate experimentalism, even fi the band had two terrific players (Luiz Paulo Simas on keyboards and Candinho on drums, both would latter join Vímana, one of Brazil´s finest prog bands of the 70´s). Brazil had several better bands working at the time, some of which never got the chance to leave their tunes properly recorded for posterity.

However, if you like the aforementioned styles you should check it out anyway. This is surely not my cup of tea. My CD came with 8 bonus tracks of unknown origins, probably demos for a forthcoming LP that never was. They show they much likely were taking a very different step towards musical directions if they had stayed together. Those goes from funk rock to brazilian popular and even include some whimsical moments like The Cancer Stick.

Conclusion: worth a listen, but since they have such underground status as a cult group I was expecting a lot more. Rating: something between 2,5 and 3 stars.

5 stars Lysergic, hard, psychedelic, progressive and a gem! Totally fuzz guitar, a lot of atmospheric and spacy keyboards, good bass and drums. The production was very poor, but this helped to give the songs a dark atmosphere despite the happy and crazy vocals. This guys were on heavy drugs when reco ... (read more)
