El Páramo biography
EL PÁRAMO got independent of an elderly Spanish rock band SOU EDIPO in the beginning of 2005. As a four-piece instrumental rock outfit much influenced by stoner rock, heavy metal, and progressive rock, the founding members - Santi (drums), Macón (guitars), Santi Ventreri (bass), and Jorge (guitars) - could make a great success of their first concert in the end of August 2005 under the slogan of inquiry into Stoner Progressive Rock world, obviously different from ADRIFT, Macón and Jorge's metal band. In September 2008 EL PÁRAMO finally released their eponymous debut album on Alone Records.

4 stars A colourful psychedelic progressive rock.

EL PÁRAMO, including two Adrift (already in Progarchives Progressive Metal list) members, have come from Spain, independent of a Spanish stoner rock outfit Sou Edipo. On stage or on this album, they have played psychedelic progressive rock different from Sou Edipo or Adrift ... we can find this difference only in the first track "Varicela", starting with pure Space Rock like Hawkwind or their followers and changing their style into slow stoner or ethnic one. We can say their friends CUZO are a purely stoner progressive rock band, but EL PÁRAMO's music attitude can frequently be altered among psychedelic / stoner / ethnic rock turfs just like kaleidoscopic glimmers. Basically their sounds are heavy and deeply unrefined, not loud nor scattered - especially a free guitar solo can be exploded over exaggerated drumming and deep, deep bass sounds. Well let me say that their musical core is just the phantasmagoria of Santi's drums ... a rough call though. - yea the two guitarist gangsters (Macón and Jorge) are playing in Adrift, a heavily metallic progressive band, as you know. However, Santi cannot be defeated nor beaten by them in playing. Rather, his flexibility in drumming, e.g. in "Sirope De Arena", can support Macón and Jorge's fuzzy, heavy, speedy guitar solos we can say?

We've found another Spanish brilliant star ... so glad to meet EL PÁRAMO.

Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition. and to NotAProghead for the last updates
