Tantra - Satori (2010)
The one and only album from this Argentine band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of guitars, bass, percussions, drums and keyboards. A guest musician also provided flute and saxophone.
This Argentine band must not be confused with the Portoguese band with the same name, btw.
Tantra plays space rock. Space rock from the outer space. Lots of guitars is driving the music forward together with some keyboards too.
The band manages to create a good ambience with their music. Music which is pretty dynamic at times. But it is still space rock from the outer space.
The use of half-acoustic guitars are interesting. Ditto for the flutes. That aside.......
The music on this one hour long album is fairly good. Not awfully interesting, but it is still a good tapestry. The five minutes Tensiones is a song they should have built more on and expanded on. It has some good percussions, flutes and guitars. The rest of the material is not that good.
In short, this album lands somewhere between decent and good.
