Crucis from Argentina, was one of the most promissing progressive rock groups frm mid '70's from South America. Having a short career of almost 4 years and 2 albums for Crucis was hard to make it big in those times, but with all that they succesfully made two great albums. Conducted and formed by excellent Gustavo Montesano, helped by Psiglo drummer Gonzalo Farrugia, Anibel Kerpel on keyboards and Pino Marrone on guitar, Crucis mange to come with a good first album. To me, the selftitled album from 1975 is a cross between symphonic prog and heavy brog . The album is up tempo, dynamic with lots of tempo changes, with good solos and some great keys parts, but overall nothing is really impressive. Crucis was quite diffrent then most of their country fellows and from South America in general the latest being much more influenced by italian synphonic prog, Crucis was more towards heavy prog typical for british music in that early to mid '70's. So, not a particular piece is in front, all are good and all are not excellent, a fair album with plenty of great moments.3-3.5 stars
