    Nodriza: 'La Montaña Desnuda'
    Published by Dimas F. Otero - 1 year ago

    It is the existence of bands like Nodriza that guarantees the quality of a musical scene: tireless bands that, with high levels of commitment and experimental vocation are possessed by their sound, their hearing and the unexplainable rules of their interplay, instead of yielding to some obsolete radio tags.

    In the last few years, metal music has reached an uncanny level of variety and influence. However, among the plethora of bands in existence, some must preserve the essential characteristics of metal: Frenzy is one of those bands.

    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.

    The Ivory Maze: 'The Ivory Maze'
    Published by Dimas F. Otero - 2 years ago

    The Ivory Maze had just finished recording their second LP: one that, in my opinion, will be among the greatest alt-rock albums of this year. And I think like that because their first album left quite a sweet taste in my mouth.

    Imperial Jade: 'Please Welcome'
    Published by Dimas F. Otero - 2 years ago

    Imperial Jade is a band from Maresme. Their music puts memory to use, but not in the same sense that museums do, keeping art frozen into concepts; instead, this band instills new life into old sounds. Their aesthetics, the cover art of the album and even the models of their guitars are clues for the decade they aim to channel through their music.

    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.

    Even if it's still a mainly underground phenomenon, Spain's post-hardcore scene is thriving, and it aims to expand the basic sounds of the genre, keep them alive and open them to a new world.

    Svuco: 'Mizaru'
    Published by Dimas F. Otero - 2 years ago

    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.

    Arise: 'Aquareum'

    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?
