4 stars This was one of those cds i had given up hope of finding until I saw it on some obscure vendor's internet site and was able to get it. Believe me this was worth the search. This is heavy, experimental and spacey. And the singing, yelling and talking that goes on are all in Spanish. See Cesar's review to read what the concept of this album is about.

"Vatkrakis" opens with an outburst of a riff before a nice heavy soundscape comes in. The vocals are almost sinister sounding followed by some whispering. Great guitar solo follows and more whispering. Vocals are back before some demented laughing 2 1/2 minutes in as it settles down briefly. The heaviness is back before 3 minutes to the end. "Capsula Roja" opens with more heaviness. I love their sound. The guitar is fantastic.The tempo picks up and some screaming guitar arrives after 2 minutes. Just a great instrumental track that blends into "Sentencia" a short song with people speaking with background sounds. "Matapaco" opens with sirens and the sounds of people yelling and running before some fast heavy riffs take over. The heavy riffs slow down and speed up the rest of the way. "Delirio De Krinia" opens with gentle guitar and synths as different sounds come and go. Lots of atmosphere for over 2 minutes then the drums, guitar and bass create a dark mood with tempo changes. Cool section. "Extencions" features the band TRYO on bass, drums and guitar. How cool is that ! It opens with piano that reminds me of Kevin Moore on his amazing "Dead Air For Radios" record. The heaviness comes and goes until it stays for good a minute in. The guitar is grinding it out 2 1/2 minutes in. The piano is back a minute later. Incredible song. "Juan Pirron" is a short piece that is quite haunting with people yelling.

"Palpito" is a heavy, guitar led tune with some chunky bass. Some guest flute a minute in. "Demencia" is much like "Juan Pirron" with piano added. "Organon" is dark and heavy with some great bass and screaming guitar. Someone is yelling. The tempo changes as drums and bass dominate for a while. Heavy guitar 3 minutes in and more yelling. "Kovyankho" opens with waves of synths before some fat bass comes into this atmospheric section. The guitar and drums change the mood before 2 minutes as the tempo picks up. More chunky bass after 3 minutes and some outstanding angular guitar a minute after that. Nice. "Vertigo" opens with piano before a light melody follows. Some heaviness after 2 minutes before a solo piano interlude returns. All hell breaks loose 4 minutes in. "Bruma" is mostly a haunting and eerie soundscape with no real melody except for the brief heavy drums 3 minutes in. "Engranje" is the 1 minute closer that is upbeat with xylophone and silliness including a sheep.

Easily 4 stars, this is my kind of music.
