4 stars Iconoclasta - "Live in France" (Metropolis Records CDM 6011, 2002, CD)

Is it amazing that the Mexican band Iconoclasta is still around? Yes, but on the other hand with such passion founder member Riccardo Moreno shows, to keep the torch of prog rock in Mexico burning, it's hardly suprising. Although the band is more than 20 years old, they still try to experiment within their style, daring to make complex music even today. This is a live recording from a concert they gave during the 3rd festival of progressive rock in Poitou-Charente, France. Their line up is Ricardo Moreno (guitars and keys), Victor Baldovinos (drums), Nohemi D'Rubin (bass), Ricardo Ortegon (guitars) and Salvador Gobla (keys). It's an excellent lively sound and the interplay between guitar and synths is perfect. The audience show their aural appreciation when the drummer juggles with his drumsticks during an intermezzo within the brilliant classic "Suite Mexicana." Iconoclasta is still a force to be reckoned with live. - Roel Steverink
