Daniel Bautista biography
Born in 1980 in Málaga (Spain), Daniel BAUTISTA started playing the guitar in 1993. From 1994 to 2001, he was involved in many bands with various styles; pop/rock, punk rock, heavy metal, speed metal, thrash metal, black metal and nu metal.

Late 1999, BAUTISTA was approached to play the guitar in a band called MR. FROG (later renamed in HIPOSPADIA), a musical project aiming at crossing several genres like pop, death metal, tango, thrash metal, bossanova, black metal, classic metal, hard rock, jazz, blues, oriental, country, funk, techno, punk, classical music, rock, latin, progressive metal, and even circus music. Hence the comparison with MR. BUNGLE. HIPOSPADIA recorded a cassette called "The Calima Hedionda EP" after 6 months of existence. The sound was very bad. In August 2000 they recorded their first demo, "Troops of Glam", in the Arr.wav studios of Carlos EXIMENTA. After their drummer left, BAUTISTA decided to program drums via MIDI (like he did in past band EVIL INSIDE). A second demo, "Gonzo Dream" was recorded in May 2001, this time with MIDI drums. Taking part in the Paraninfo Contest (a competition between local bands), HIPOSPADIA won the Contest of 2002. Two video-clips followed: "Smgma" and "Porno Autopsy", and late 2002 they released their third and last demo, "Krapulas". HIPOSPADIA disbanded in April 2004.

Daniel then joined the band CIRUELO CILÍNDRICO, active since 2002. Playing hard-rock with a modern touch, the band recorded with Daniel two EPs: "Six Musical Bullets" in 2005 and "Gemini" in 2007, and two LPs "Ciruelosis" and "C'est Fini", both in 2008, the year the band split up.

During the next 2 years, Daniel played at wedding shows in a cover band called EL GRAN HOUDINI. Three fourths of the band: Daniel BAUTISTA (guitars), Juan Carlos TRUJILLO (bass), Ricardo PADILLA (drums) created in parallel the prog-metal band PROGSIDE. They later hired the fourth member of EL GRAN HOUDINI, Ylenia ÁLVAREZ, to ensure vocals. Daniel left both bands in April 2010 to take care of his family.

Daniel's solo career began while he was still in HIPOSPADIA, in 2000. At that time, he recorded two experimental albums, called "Autoindulgence" and "Alone", intended for his friends only. Then in 2002, covers of classical favorites with HIPOSPADIA ended as the collection "Classics And Soundtracks". In 2008, Daniel released the album "recycle bin", which is a collection of experimental songs composed in...

Daniel Bautista Progressive Metal

Review by octopus-4

— First review of this album —
4 stars What Vitalij Kuprij does with the keyboards, Daniel Bautista does with his guitars. I write guitars, plural, because this Spanish artist is, like Kuprij,classically trained and this is very evident both in playing and in composing, so that you can find heavy distortion and nylon string at the same time.

Also in this very short album you can find classic, metal, fusion and electronic.

Let's see:

"Introspectiva" is just 30 seconds, the first 15 a bit chaotic the second 15 symphonic...I'd say Wagnerian.

If you expect proper progressive metal, "Agnostic" is the track. Heavy guitar riff with a lot of notes played very fast and symphonic influence. This is where I see the connection with Vitalij Kuprij.

"Fuego Camina Conmigo" (Fire, walk with me) is opened by acoustic guitar then proceeds like a Canon until the metal explosion. Also on this track the classical influence is consistent. Not in the instruments used, of course, but in the melody. I think that the voice of Serj Tankian would have made it a great song, but also instrumental as it is it's an excellent track.

"In Dreams" has an electronic opening. Square waves in Edgar Froese's style but an odd signature for the bass line takes the distance from TD. There are vocals with an effect similar to that invented many years ago by Peter Frampton: sending the voice to the guitar's pickups. The sound is powerful but the track is very melodic.

"Digital Pendejos" passes from melodic to metal and shows again the classical influence in the chord's sequences. There's much of JS Bach. I'd like to see Bautista playing with the Ukrainian keyboardist.

Then comes a few seconds of string quartet. Well, it's a virtual quartet as it's all MIDI, but the classical mood is quickly and suddenly replaced by the most noisy metal of the album. It's a short reprise of "Fuego Camina Conmigo" followed by "Siete" (Thirst) which features also the Frampton's effect and some heavy electronics.

40 seconds of fusion with "Intermezzo Softcore" on which we can hear some jazzy clean guitar played in a McLaughlin style then classical guitar opens "In The Desert" that's so melodic that I could consider it as neo-prog. If I had to choose a track to send on the air it's this one. Very catchy without being trivial until the central section which has an unusual signature and a chaotic development before joining back the original theme. The rock grows 'til the end.

"Elegante" is a sort of metal-tango which starts with a light avant flavor and then turns into melodic rock closed by a guitar riff played in 64th. 1 minute of pure (good) metal with "Intermezzo Hardcore", then "Pushing The Limit" I think is referred to his guitar playing. How many fingers does he have?

"Homenaje" is a three seconds beep of a wrongly inserted jack, and is followed by "Outrospectiva" which closes the album with a patchwork of sounds which ends with a gong. It's like Bautista is saying, "ok I do good metal, but I can be experimental if I want".

An excellent album, short, but enough to start exploring this fantastic guitarist.

Daniel Bautista Progressive Metal

3 stars I went to know Daniel Bautista from the "Legal dowloads" forum here on PA. There have been a high number of Beethoven's covers and arrangements during the year, especially of the first movement of the 5th symphony, but this Spanish metal guitarist is really surprising.

On the 5th he has simply replaced the symphonic orchestra with instruments typically rock but without changing it too much. Beethoven's addict and Clockwork Orangers will disagree, but I think this is still the 5th, not just a rock or pop interpretation of the classic as have been done by Deodato and that 70s disco band whose name I don't remember. I mean that the atmosphere of the original is not lost in the distorted guitar and also Bautista shows a very good skill. I have heard him playing classical guitar and he's classically trained for sure, that's why he shows some respect in this arrangement.

Thing sare not different with the 7th. I'm not sure about how he plays. I think the technique used is similar to Stanley Jordan's: bass notes played by tapping with the left hand and high pitches tapping with the right, but it may be overdubbed. A good guitar solo effort.

The "Moonlight Sonata" is another of the most known pieces of classical music ever. This is made with acoustic and classical guitar which alternates with a bass. Also this arrangement is respectful of the original.

Still in the Olimpus of classical music with the "Pastoral". The arrangement is very metal in this case. Bautista has taken a bit more license in this case, but what he does with the guitar is impressive. About the tapping thing I have the same doubts of the 7th symphony but despite of that there are also drums and bass. More prog-metal than Beethoven.

The "Gross Fugue" is probably the best track of the album. Of course when you reinterpret a so good thing, unless you completely destroy it, it can't be bad.

Finally "Fur Elisa"...well I didn't need another version of it, but it's still in the average goodness of this album.

I can't find another album which fits more in the definition "good but non-essential"

Thanks to Rune2000 for the artist addition.
