    New studio work recorded by the guys from Utrera (Sevilla, Spain), that keeps the essence of the band, previously shown on ​​Deathwatch beetle​ (2014). But, this time, it is almost completely off all accessory.

    Sunfaia: 'La Resistance'

    Sun and fire. Rock and Reggae. Punk and Grunge. Blues and Stoner. A band with a style far removed from what we usually hear on the Spanish scene.

    Granada is, without a doubt, one of the shiniest stars on the firmament of Iberian pop music. Compositional quality, originality of voices and accents and a certain passion for authenticity are all characteristic of this unique world to which Svuco belongs.

    This band from Alicante has released a new album and, with it, a prodigy. A melodic metal album that is prodigious because it sung by a female voice in its native Spanish language. But what lies beyond this prodigy, amongst the waters recalled by the album's title?

    However, listening to some albums published ths last year suffices to realize their assumptions as erroneous: practically all historical genres, with their boundaries more and more blurred, keep on receiving the attention of new artists. One of the most critically maligned genres is, perhaps, progressive rock, the genre of the album we will now review.

    Belgrado: 'Siglo XXI'

    A good day I realized that my musical standards had narrowed (had I, perhaps, turned old?) because “post-punk revival” and its nostalgia started to look like simple tomfoolery to me. What was the aim of trying to recover those joyous, desperately non-political chants permeated of colorful thatcherism that overlooked unemployment, AIDS and heroin? Luckily enough, I soon became aware of the other side of that retro scene, the dark side to which Belgrado belongs.

    In the Iberian Peninsula we have a great band, from a time now almost part of our musical heritage: Berri Txarrak. But a band alone, no matter how “great”, cannot generate a scene, does not “invite” other artists to take their example and play using novel resources, but usually serves as a mere addition to other scenes: more often than not, it becomes a relic, a curiosity. I always felt sorry for the loneliness of the heroic Navarran band, a loneliness that, ultimately, was the loneliness of us all. Who knows how much I yearned for a band like this one I'll present now!
