Review by Mellotron Storm
4 stars TESIS ARSIS is the brainchild of one Anderson Rodrigues who is from Brazil, a man who first studied guitar then later classical piano.This guy can flat out play ill tell you that. He takes care of those two instruments, although in the liner notes it says he composed, arranged and performed all the music. So did he play drums and bass or were they programmed ? I think the latter. No matter this is pretty incredible. In the liner notes it says "This work was done in solidarity to the animals killed, indiscriminantly, in our planet." We get five long instrumental compositions at just under 72 minutes.

"Hiroshima 45" is an intense number that opens with lightning cracks and thunder while organ and synths are played powerfully. It kicks in after 1 1/2 minutes then settles as the contrasts continue.The guitar noises and thunder sound amazing.The guitar is lighting it up 7 minutes in. Just an incredible opener. "Ecos Vibrantes" opens with synths before powerful organ comes in. Sounds like church organ actually. Keys and guitar before 1 1/2 minutes. Drums follow as the tempo picks up.This is powerful. Ripping guitar 4 1/2 minutes in. Piano and organ before 6 minutes then the guitar returns. Synths dominate after 7 minutes then it kicks back in with guitar leading the way.

"Fuga" sounds great to start with and then the guitar stops after a minute. Not for long though.The tempo picks up before 3 minutes as guitar grinds away.The guitar is lighting it up again. The tempo continues to shift. Fantastic tune. "Um Azul Celeste" opens with powerful pulsating organ as synths come in followed by drums and guitar before a minute.The guitar takes the lead 1 1/2 minutes in as the tempo picks up. Contrasts continue.

"Estado De Alerta Maximo" is the over 22 minute closer. Female vocal melodies (I think) open the song, they come and go. A powerful soundscape comes and goes as well as themes are repeated. I like the sound of wildlife 14 1/2 minutes in when it calms down. An emotional section considering that he dedicates this to the wild animals on our planet. You can hear the wildlife until 18 minutes in when we get a long moving guitar solo to the end of the song. As an animal lover I cant help but be moved a lot by this.

A couple of years ago I was in the habit of listening to an internet radio station while on my computer, and TESIS ARSIS was a band this particular station played a lot.Thats why I sought out this album and am very pleased with it. Anderson is a very talented and caring person.
