As i have said in my other CDC reviews, you can easily hear their influences, or you can even find similarities with bands like KC and maybe Univers Zero, but what you CANīT say is that these guys are not original and creative. Their approach to music is totally different than iīve seen with most of the bands. They wanted to go further this time, creating the sounds from the very deep inside, and what deeper than making their own instruments to achieve that goal. Yes, instruments made with their own hands (actually made by Francisco Sotelo, the drummer and percussionist).

And you can feel this in the music which is more spiritual and darker but at the same time emotional and delicate. This time they are very close to perfection.

The release is divided in 2 discs : METALMUSICA, wich contains a very wide variety of intsruments made out of metal, thatīs the reason of the name, not because their music belongs to that genre. This cd has new recordings and they use their typical instruments like Stick, sax, flute, etc. but including all the original ones that i mensioned. Although the music is highly experimental, it doesnīt sound mechanical or made by novices playing with new toys. The sound is fresh and innovative. Maybe the best thing they have done so far. Highlights:"Fundicion",ī"Espejismo", "Indomable" and "Destiempo"

The other cd is called ALEACIONES ALEATORIAS and has recordings from different years. Also an excellent disc with many interesting expresions and feelings. You can go from exitment to relaxation almost without notice and the other way around. Best songs : "Cazador de Ballenas", "Tornado", "Del Nois al Nais" and "Para Mercedes".

Iīm not sure which cd i like the most, both are magnificent and make the full album a perfect balanced piece of contemporary art expresed in very unique music by very talented technical musicians. Not a perfect album, but close to, so i canīt give it 4.7, iīll go for the full 5*

Viva el Prog!
