2 stars Arcabuz is a Spanish band that was formed back in 1978, because of a number of reasons, including the time the band was formed, the band broke up reforming only in 2014 when they finally released their debut album Or'genes (2014).

Now, to be able to listen this album beginning to end you need a lot of courage and patience, cause this is like the most boring moments of Camel and Caravan united in 7 intrumental tracks.

Instrumental Progressive Rock is not a problem for me, but it becomes a major problem when all of the songs are arranged in a way as if you HAD a singer, and that's the case here. Not to mention that pretty much all of the 7 compositions follow the same patterns (in terms of rhythm and melody) and on top of that you have really week keyboard sounds.

It's hard for me to bash an album by a band that tries to follow the 70's path, but Arcabuz needs WAY much work to be able to step up the Prog ladder, and Or'genes (2014) doesn't help much, honestly.
