Review by Rivertree
4 stars Already indicating the trio's qualities and prog fundament, I can remember their debut 'Desintegracion' from 2014, which already attracted my attention. However, this new album, just released on Temple Of Torturous Records in these days, surely is a step forward to something really superb. The five songs, two of them crossing the ten minute border, are well thought out compositions. They are still reserving enough space for some instrumental excursions, though on the other hand will step away from a jamming attitude basically. Furthermore to state, I would say it's not that usual to use native lyrics.

Let's start with the opener Pan Y Dolor and the band's rhythm backbone, consisting of Mat (bass) and Pow (drums). Both are serving a tremendous groove, partially tending towards southern rock throughout. All members are also responsible for the subtle use of vintage keyboard stuff including mellotron and farfisa. Anyhow, Pot's electric guitar is dominant over the course, first of all the fantastic centerpiece El Sueno evolves to a magical showcase. A swinging La Maldición Del Zisco then appears with moog support and surprising facility.

Belleza Cuatro offers a fine blend of psychedelia and shoegaze where Volarás comes with charming polyphonic vocals, evolves into an atmospheric orientation soon, close to Airbag respectively Pink Floyd. 'Inerte' is another effort which contrasts pleasantly from the vast number of albums presented to this concept of genre in recent times. Enjoyable from the first to the last minute, developed with much empathy, including prominent mix and sound quality. Excellent move, ATAVISMO!

Review by Mellotron Storm
5 stars This will no doubt be high on my final "best of" list for 2017. ATAVISMO are a trio out of Spain who play a Psychedelic brand of music. This is album number two for the boys(and girl). So we get a trio of bass, drums and guitar while all three also sing, play farfisa and mellotron. Oh those last two instruments have me drooling.

"Pan Y Dolor" is the most Spanish sounding song by far. The strummed guitar and multi-vocals bring that country to mind. It hits the ground running with bass, drums and guitar contrasted with the strummed guitar and multi-vocals I mentioned earlier. It starts to get really good when a calm arrives after 3 1/2 minutes. We get relaxed picked guitar but check out the mellotron choirs when they arrive. Oh my! Drums and bass will join in and the guitar does get quite expressive here as it cries out. More mellotron after 6 minutes. This is so good! Back to that strummed guitar with drums before the guitar starts to make some noise. Vocals and that Spanish sound return before 8 minutes.

"El Svendo" is powerful right off the hop with distorted guitar and pounding drums. Vocals join in and they will come and go as the power stays constant. It settles back some before 4 1/2 minutes but the guitar if anything becomes more powerful and the focus. It settles back even more before 6 1/2 minutes and I adore the tone of that guitar as the drums beat away. Back to the earlier guitar tone as he starts to light it up, especially before 9 1/2 minutes. Fantastic! It then turns heavier with distortion. My favourite song.

"La Maidicion Del Zisco" opens with distortion as a bass line kicks in followed by a full sound. Love that bass! Vocals before 1 1/2 minutes then some vocal melodies 3 minutes in the bass continues to kill here. Great sound! Vocals are back 4 minutes in. Repetitive riffs kick in around 5 minutes. "Belleza Cuatro" has a slow start of bass and atmosphere and more as reserved vocals arrive before 1 1/2 minutes. Vocal melodies before 3 1/2 minutes but they are brief. When they stop it becomes more powerful. It starts to wind down 5 minutes in.

"Volares" opens with heavy drums as synths and female vocal melodies join in. The guitar starts to cry out after a minute. Great sound before 3 minutes, so powerful. It then settles back some as guitar starts to slowly solo over top of the soundscape. So good! Vocals after 4 1/2 minutes and they stop after 6 minutes as distorted guitar comes to the fore. Vocals are back before 7 minutes as the song seems to drift along. More distorted guitar after 8 minutes to the end.

Man this seems like it was custom made for me apart from the Spanish bits of the opener. I really like how powerful this is at times, lots of depth to the sound. Just an amazing album from start to finish. Now where can I get their debut?

5 stars Wow! This is the first time I've listened to the band's songs, they come from Spain and I auditioned on bandcamp and got a fresh look. Their style is psychedelic rock, this is their second album, I feel better than many big new work is better, this year's masterpiece. Their music is full of Spanish ... (read more)
