Los Natas biography
Founded in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1994 - Disbanded in 2012

Much influenced by Proto-Prog scene in the latter part of the 1960s like The Doors or The Who and Psych/Space Rock in the 1970s like Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, or Hawkwind, LOS NATAS gave their first cry in 1993 as an Argentine Stoner Progressive Rock ensemble. Sergio CHOTSOURIAN (guitars, voices), Walter BROIDE (drums, voices), and Gonzalo 'Crudo' VILLAGRA (bass) have cultivated their soundscape more widely not only with their native essence or psychedelic, experimental rock but also with the trance minimalism of the Hindu or the Futurism of the Techno-Goa-Trance music. And all their musical essence could be crystallized as their debut album 'Delmar' (recorded in 1996 and released in 1998 via an independent label Man's Ruin Records).

LOS NATAS are much appreciated by various genres or styles of Argentine bands, and have been persuaded to play them on a large number of stages in Argentina. Furthermore they have been on many tours to US, Europe, South America with important bands in each country, and performed as headliners in various rock festivals all around the world. Even between lots of gigs, LOS NATAS invited Billy Anderson, a renowned record producer & engineer, to produce some of their albums - e.g. 'Corsario Negro' (2002), 'El Hombre Montaņa' (2006), or 'El Universo Perdido' (2007) - all of that can be much approved by reviewers and fans.

Los Natas Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars 4.5 stars. LOS NATAS were a Stoner Rock trio out of Argentina who released 8 studio albums between 1996 and 2010. Quite influential too, especially in South America but these guys did many World tours. Their debut was much in the KYUSS style before becoming more original with 99's "Ciudad De Brahman" which is rated insanely high on the RYM site with tons of ratings. I have it and it features short vocal tracks for the most part but even within these pieces they change it up often as they have that progressive spirit for sure.

The next album from 2001 "Corsario Negro" is much better with them expanding the tracks, less vocals, better songs. The followup to it is this record "Toba-Trance" from 2002 and you wouldn't even know it was the same band. No vocals except for some wordless vocals on that second song plus some spoken and yelled words in Spanish on the closer. And three long trippy tracks over 52 1/2 minutes.

I have absolutely fallen for this album but that last track keeps me from giving this 5 stars. Having said that the first two songs I just can't get enough of. Repeated themes, that beautiful sounding electric guitar with those inviting melodies that come and go. It took many spins but man my kind of music. The contrasts too on those first two tracks aren't between the trippy and heavy but trippy and intense sections. There is a difference with that final track having some heaviness generated by what sounds like down-tuned guitar rumbling along a one point but this is far from Stoner music.

The closer I feel is too artsy for it's own good. The guitarist adds flute plus we get some percussion giving this tune an ethnic and native vibe for sure. It's just so sparse at times but having said that I'm drawn to the thunderous atmosphere to open and close, some yelling and carrying on too suggesting this may have a concept to it that I wish I knew about. Seems like a special track but it's difficult to enjoy much of the time. The rest is simply beautiful psychedelic music.

Review by berat

4 stars Greetings from Ankara, Turkey during the end of first year of COVID-19 Pandemic. Tonight is the first night I am listening to Los Natas and I must say my hopes weren't high when my flatmate opened up a song from his Spotify Discover Weekly. Right after listening to the track Brisa del Desierto, I put on my headphones and started listening to the album from the very first track Carl Sagan. Considering the fact that Los Natas's music genre is said to be psychedelic/space/stoner rock, I guess, I started to think that this is a concept album. I don't know what it is, but I know that I will learn. Either by reading some weird Spanish sites from the very depths of Internet with Google translate, or by lowering my PhD and making up a one. Either way, I will learn what it is. But I don't plan on writing it again since I don't usually write something to the internet, unless it is some quantum [&*!#] or trolling. But I want to believe that this comment will not be alone under this excellent album in this great site. So yeah. It is a good album.

Los Natas Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Kadok

5 stars This is my first review in prog archives, and sorry for my english if is not perfect, but I want to do the first review of this incredible album. In the first place, is difficult to put it on some genre, is strange even on the Los Natas discography. It was first published in Finlandia, by Ektro Records, in 2003, and almost a year later in Argentina. In the two albums, Los Natas loses all the stoner-sludge perspective for a new, unheard music. They combined the progressive space rock with some indian influences, trance, givin birth to the most particular south american record of the decade...maybe of history. The ensamble is beautiful, very much lighted than the other Natas records. And not sound like improvised jamms, their parts seems to be perfectly thinked before, not a wasted nanosecond. The most recomendable (not only prog) argentinian album of XXI century .

Review by Morningrise

4 stars Los Natas on Progarchives: All I have to say was about damn time!!

I've never suggested Los Natas as a probable inclusion to the archives (I guess it was laziness), but I often wondered why this awesome band wasn't already here. Today when I realised someone had made the job for me, I thought to myself that the least I could do was writing a review for them, if only to make them well known on ProgArchives.

For those unfamiliar with the band, Los Natas are an argentinian trio with different reminescences, such as Pink Floyd or Black Sabbath (I like to think of them as a Black Sabbath on acid). They are very well known in the stoner rock scene (they shared stage with bands like Queens Of The Stone Age or Colour Haze, just to name a few), and to my opinion they are one of the most interesting bands my country has to offer, and their live shows are definitely a one of a kind experience.

I chose Corsario Negro for this review since it happens to be my favourite album from them. The music here is really hypnotizing, dark, moody, constantly changing, and filled with instrumental passages as in almost every other Natas offering. The highlights of the album are Patas De Elefante, El Cono Del Encono, the title track, which is a long jamming, and Hey Jimmy, which is a completely different song from the rest. A simple short guitar-based instrumental very relaxing and soothing. In fact, the whole album takes the listener to a sensorial trip with an openly wide variety of sounds and textures.

4 stars.

Thanks to damoxt7942 for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
