Tryo - Crudo (1998)
The second album from this band from Chile.
Tryo is a trio on this album with a lineup of guitars, bass, percussion, cello, drums and vocals.
I reviewed their 1996 self-titled album one month ago for his blog and you can find that review somewhere else in this blog. I was not too impressed with their heavy rock and fusion crossover.
That album was a mild earthquake compared to the shock Crudo gave me.
This three quarter of an hour long album comes in two halves.
The first half is a live album with power heavy metal with some fusion influences. But it is mostly heavy metal and the guitar solos is not interesting. Neither is the music. It is a pretty dull first half of this album, to be brutally honest.
The final half sees the band turns into a classical music chamber orchestra. Yes, there is nothing wrong with your eyesight. Classical music chamber orchestra.
The music is totally acoustic and based on a cello with some acoustic guitars inbetween.
This half is pretty dull too. It has a couple of decent ideas but that is all.
I am not impressed at all with this half-decent album. It is well worth avoiding.
