Guapo's debut is hard to really classify as prog. Or maybe as hardcore-prog if such thing did exist. When you get this CD in your deck , make sure the volume level is not up too high to save your sanity, your speakers and your mariage.

Throughout my first listening, coming back from the library with this one,I was brought to think of many influences outside of prog: Red Hot Chilli Peppers , Hardcore Punk or Thrash Metal but really the closest this came to was Rage Against The Machine's debut album which was a masterpiece in its genre. This is a very violent record that makes it very difficult listen. A small surprise, Matt Thompson plays guitar on this album but on all the other I have heard, he is on bass.
