Introducing Mexican progressive rock quartet - Electro Compulsive Therapy.

Formed in 2016, Electro Compulsive Therapy are a progressive rock band from Monterrey, Mexico, comprising of four experienced musicians: Guillermo Garcia Herreros (lead vocals and keyboards), Andres Jasso (guitar), Rodolfo Gonzales (bass guitar) and Javier Villareal (drums and percussion). Between them they create melodic, atmospheric prog rock, with contemplative and melancholic vocals, flowing, dirge-like and hypnotic passages along with soaring instrumental guitar and keyboard excursions layered over a strong and solid rhythm foundation. Whilst they do wear their musical influences on their sleeves across most tracks, they have mixed them into a fresh and appealing concoction, which is both unique and approachable. 

There are shades of Riverside, Porcupine Tree, Airbag, Anathema and Pink Floyd overtones, but then there are hints of latter-day Bowie and Marillion, Talk Talk, Edge-like U2 riffs, Joy Division bass runs and maybe the atmospheric, understated sparseness of Nick Cave in the emotive vocals. Chief songwriter Guillermo is not afraid to soak up his influences and yet produce a progressive rock soundscape to appeal to followers of the bands mentioned above. He will even throw in a Mellotron passage if it complements the atmosphere generated.

Possible genre: crossover prog

Their eponymous debut album is available on:

Prog hasn't been as popular in Mexico as in other parts of the world but there are some great Mexican prog bands. Check out the top albums on RYM
