Reviews


review by: Nuno This album has come as a big surprise to my ears. This Spanish band, hailing from Barcelona (Catalunya) does present a vivid and lively kind of Progressive music that is both modern and respectful of the old school of Canterbury, Fusion and King Crimson-like challenging prog.

The music in Bholenat is a powerful mix of the aforementioned styles, drawing tangents to the music of such bands as the mentioned King Crimson, but also Gong, Moving Gelatine Plates, Avant Garden, Embryo, Dificil Equilibrio, Soft Machine, Hatfield and the North and then some Kraut bands. This results in a power driven musicality, tremendously thoughtful and very well crafted, constantly challenging the listener while maintaining itself in a quite listenable status.
The band experiments and expands its musicality through frantic rhythms and calm melodies, and all that stands in between, using a totally progressive drumming and bass section that bases the whole gamut of instruments that are then added in a showcase of good playing and even better interplay. The keyboards are excellent throughout the whole album, sometimes piano, other times a bit more electronic, while the intrusions of the wind instruments are always fantastic. The guitar playing is sometimes rockier and close to the alternative paths, other times is acoustic and quieter, but always to good effect.
The band strives for diversity and is pretty capable of achieving it without sounding forced or over its top, quite on the contrary, all sounds very natural. This results on a mature, sharp sound that continuously grabs the listener and makes him enjoy each and every swirl and twist of the music.

This is a very strong album, filled in details and great musicianship, and it’s a refreshing and sometimes mind-blowing experience that fans of KC, Canterbury, Fusion and Kraut should try out. You won’t be sorry, I assure you!!
