Extasis En Tus Venas
Vlad Tepes Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by progadicto

3 stars Have to say that I'm not a big fan of psych/space rock stuff perhaps I had some favorites bands in this genre and I'm always open to find new sounds to keep my mind occupied enjoying some great tunes. That was one of the reasons that make me hear Vlad Tepes first album.

An intro simulating recent radio news mixed with excrepts of songs made by well-known argentinian musicians open the way to de "Part I" of the album, an instrumental journey that reminds the most exquisite and heavy psychedelic sounds of the 70's with a hard rhythmical base mixed with slow and soaring sections, enigmatic impros and surprising breaks always leaded by an omnipresent guitar.

Perhaps it's a well elaborated album built on the great technique of their musicians, I can perceive a little lack of originality until the irruption of spanish vocals son "Part II". Here the things turns into another kind of journey more structured but still psychedelic that ends with a very interesting jazzy impro before the "Part III", a track that mixes some heavy guitar sections with some proggy (and succesfull) attempts.

"Part IV" close the circle repeating the formula of the previous tracks, narrating with spanish lyrics the end of that particular "ectasy".

For few minutes you can compare Vlad Tepes with other similar musical experiments from this part of the world such as El Diablo or Pez. Perhaps the comparisions are obviuos (and even annoying) "Éxtasis en Tus Venas" (Ectasy in Your Veins) it's a very honest proposal that in almost 40 minutes deploys not just the talent of their musicians but even some nice and remarkable sections that every psychedelic fan would love.

Thanks to rivertree for the artist addition.
