Iceberg - Tutankhamon (1975)
The debut album from this Spanish band.
Iceberg was a quintet on this album with a lineup of guitars, saxophone, bass, drums, mellotron, synths, keyboards and Spanish vocals.
The band released four albums between 1975 and 1979. I have reviewed their second and third album for # 1 of this blog. These reviews are here and here.
Those two albums, Coses Nostres and Sentiments, was fusion albums. Very good fusion albums too. Tutankhamon is not a fusion album, though.
Take some Led Zeppelin and add some more hard rock too. Then add some symphonic prog with the mellotron and add a few sprinklings of fusion, soul and Spanish folk too over this stew. Then you get this album.
Tutankhamon is to a large extent a hard rock album with agressive guitars and guitar solos. The vocals is really good and adds quality to this album although I do not speak Spanish.
The end result is a passionate, soulful album which really rocks and moves the listener. It is also a very progressive album with a lot for the brain to digest too. It is a good album which I would recommend. Check it out.
