Crucis biography
This Argentinian band from Buenos Aires featured Gustavo Montesano (bass/vocals), Anibel Kerpel (keyboards), Pino Marrone (guitar/vocals) and a drummer from Uruguay named Gonzalo Farrugia (from the known progrock band Psiglo). They existed from '74 until '77 and made two records: "Crusis" from '76 and "Los Delirios Del Mariscal" from '77. The music has a typcial Seventies sound with echoes from THE NICE and FOCUS.

Both LP's were released as separate CD's but finally re-released on a 1-CD entitled "Kronologia". The music is half instrumental/half with strong Spanish vocals and the emphasis is on the keybaords (organ, string-ensemble, synthesizers, Steinway - and Fender Rhodes piano), the rhythm-section sounds powerful and adventurous. The compositions are strong and dynamic with surprising breaks and the interplay between the electric guitar (often spectacular wah-wah) and keyboards is captivating. On their second album the tracks are longer with more solos and a stronger influence from jazzrock and Dutch masters FOCUS.

Review by MyDarling95

5 stars These guys from Argentina have only 2 albums, 13 songs (counting their first single) and yet they are one of the most astonishing bands I've ever heard, really, EVER! Their works are really a must-have for every single prog lover, and the best they could do here was to pull the tracks from their two LP's in a single CD, awesome! I've always loved "Los Delirios del Mariscal" more than their debut, but both are great! I would say that this band made symphonic with a touch of space rock. It's a shame that they didn't do a third record, it would have been a masterpiece without a doubt, but for having really few material, they make it into any prog lover collection easily. Really great, an obligated adquisicion. I am really proud that a many bands that sing in Spanish came to be known around here!

Review by Memo_anathemo

4 stars This is a truly magnificent album. Except for the first song, the rest are instrumental and I think their strength lies on that part. I didn't like much the voices used, but the music is superb. The song Los Delirios del Mariscal (the same name of the album) contains symphonic prog elements and the progressions are really adequate. Pollo Frito is a short but nice song, with very good progressive movements, some jazzy elements are shown here. Finally, the epic track Abismo Terrenal is excellent, with glorious guitar and bass guitar solos, and drum parts, this track sounds sometimes full of psychedelic elements and jazz touches. Crucis, a band you should hear!

Review by sinslice

5 stars I feel different emotions to remember about this album. A very dark and sad time in my country had begun. Music has no relation to what. Actually the only song with linguistic content is No Me Separen de Mí (No separate me from me).

The whole work is imaginative and with local touches, especially Pollo Frito (Fried chicken).

The production is very clear. It was mixed and mastered by Jack Adams in Miami. Each member plays an important and significant role.

The two lengthy instrumentals are the best musical group contribution in his short career. I find most original and moving the title track to the album, Los Delirios del Mariscal (Delusions of Marshal), with his pace and mesmerizing beauty.

Review by stefro
Prog Reviewer

5 stars An outrageously good slice of Argentine prog-rock, this second release from Crucis finds the group on seriously breathtaking form, channelling elements of symphonic rock, jazz, funk and folk into a blistering whole that truly defies expectation. Featuring Gustavo Montesano(bass, vocals), Anibal Kerpel(keyboards), Pino Marrone(guitar) and Gonzalo Farruiga(drums), this four-piece existed for a brief while during the mid-seventies, a time which saw a clutch of talented groups emerge from the countries folk-inflected past. Crucis, alongside the likes of Invisible, La Maquina De Hacer Parajos, Alas, Aquelarre and Espiritu, formed the core of a remarkable scene that failed to find an international foothold at the time yet has since become more and more popular with fans of more obscure progressive music. Made up of just four extended and mainly instrumental tracks, 'Los Delirios Del Mariscal' is the pick of the bunch, an album filled with virtuoso musicianship, razor-sharp guitars, shimmering synthesizers and some beautifully serene momente sof blissed-out latin prog. Highlights include the superb ten-minute title-track and it's gorgeous acoustic embellishments and the intensely epic closer' Abismo Terrenal', a piece which features a strong dose of jazz-fusion layered over the carefully-crafted progressive melodies. Simply put: A genuine masterpiece of the highest order. STEFAN TURNER, STOKE NEWINGTON, 2012

3 stars 3.5 again

Their follow up from one yar later from 1976 named Los delirios del mariscal transled approximate The Marshal's delusions is a more intristing and much better in manner of composing. Clocking around 35 min with only 4 pieces, totday it would be like for an EP, Crucis developed their sound into much more polished one and with more elaborated sections. The combination of instrumental passages with emphasis on long instrumental parts specially the keyboards and guitar have an important role here that goes somewhere between symph prog and heavy prog are succesful here, the musicianship is top notch, but again I don't know why I can't give more then3-3.5 stars. Is to much improvised passages and aswell this album is less dynamic then their forst one. I prefere No Me Separen de Mi , I think is the best track of the album , the guitar and specialy the drummer is excellent. So, another fairly good album, not a weak moment here, but nothing excelent aswell, at least for me, even they iprove their sound with more elaborated passages , the album is date it in places. 3-3.5 stars, both albums are more then ok.

Prog Reviewer

3 stars 3.5 this time

Crucis from Argentina, was one of the most promissing progressive rock groups frm mid '70's from South America. Having a short career of almost 4 years and 2 albums for Crucis was hard to make it big in those times, but with all that they succesfully made two great albums. Conducted and formed by excellent Gustavo Montesano, helped by Psiglo drummer Gonzalo Farrugia, Anibel Kerpel on keyboards and Pino Marrone on guitar, Crucis mange to come with a good first album. To me, the selftitled album from 1975 is a cross between symphonic prog and heavy brog . The album is up tempo, dynamic with lots of tempo changes, with good solos and some great keys parts, but overall nothing is really impressive. Crucis was quite diffrent then most of their country fellows and from South America in general the latest being much more influenced by italian synphonic prog, Crucis was more towards heavy prog typical for british music in that early to mid '70's. So, not a particular piece is in front, all are good and all are not excellent, a fair album with plenty of great moments.3-3.5 stars

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

3 stars I actually don't like the mostly-instrumental Los Delirios del Mariscal quite as much as I do the band's debut - it's an engaging enough and competently performed prog album in a similarly keyboard-led mode, but none of the tracks particularly stand out and the band's performance isn't quite as energetic and vibrant as it was first time around. Still, the reduced prominence of the vocals will come as a pleasant bonus to many listeners, and if you were particularly taken with their debut album Los Delirios is hardly an embarrassment. It's another significant album from the Argentine prog scene (such as it was), but it's not the groundbreaking effort its predecessor was.

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

4 stars A diverting and original album on the very cusp of symphonic prog and heavy prog, the debut Crucis album shows the influence of the likes of Emerson, Lake and Palmer and King Crimson - imagine if ELP had a couple of dynamite lead guitarists along for the ride and you're almost there, though Aníbal Kerpel as a keyboard player is less prone to showboating and random covers of classical music than Keith Emerson was. With a punchy, accessible sound, Crucis go a long way towards putting Argentina on the prog map with this technically capable, masterfully performed, well-composed and endlessly listenable album.

Review by toroddfuglesteg

3 stars This is the debut album from this Argentine band who only released two albums. Sadly only two albums, that is.

Crucis is playing a blend of heavy prog and symphonic prog. I find it hard to compare this music to the two standards; Genesis and Yes. Perhaps some ounces of Yes, but no traces of Genesis can be detected here. The tempo is up tempo pretty much throughout. There are a lot of references to RPI throughout this album, though. Biglietto Per Inferno is one of the bands I would mention as a reference. Crucis vocals though is not that good. But the mix of guitars and organs is good. The same goes for the drums and bass.

The quality is good throughout. My main gripe is the lack of any really great tracks. But the music on this album tends to slowly creep up on the listener. I have had ten listening sessions and that is my cut off point on most albums before I write a review.......... what is my point again ?............. Yes, I have yet to find any really great song here even after ten listening sessions. But I reserve my rights to come back and update this review on a later date, after ten more listening sessions and perhaps in ten years time. But this is still a good album, bordering to great. I really like the sound which sometimes reminds me about Carlos Santana too. So if you like prog from South America with this vibe, this album will do it for you.

3.5 stars

Review by Marty McFly
Special Collaborator Errors and Omissions Team

4 stars There isn't too much albums that are optimistic all the time at all costs. Because that would be something I would like a lot. Let me correct myself, that's something I like a lot here, because this album is prime example (and Moon Safari's two albums I've heard so far too).

Using various types of Symphonic goodies, this album can stand in front of all these bands from South America and shout: "Choose me, I'm the best one here". Maybe not the best, but for sure good, this album is short, but providing enough joy to fill the hearts of of demanding listeners. Even it leaves you wanting for more. There's rule that first half of this album is better than second (better structures/melodies, it gives me better impression at all).

Not perfect, but good enough. Even somehow "typical". I have, however, no problem with that.

4(+) I suppose, there's not much to be said about negatives, except that second side is slowly getting worse. Not much though.
