Aquelarre - Brumas (1974)
The third album from this Argentine band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of clavinet, guitars, bass, drums, percussion, organ, piano and Spanish vocals.
This band is a legendary band from the South American scene. They released four albums and this is their third album and my third review. The final review will come up later this summer.
I have not been impressed by their first two albums. They have been typical rock albums.
The band follows up those two albums with an album which contains more or less the same.
Take a bit hard rock, add some psych rock and some folk rock. Then add the South American sound and the Spanish vocals. This is this album and this band.
The musicians and the vocalist does a good job. There is plenty of hard guitars and Hammond organ here. The clavinet is a bit of a surprise and the only positive surprise here.
The quality of the songs on this thirty-five minutes long album is decent enough. This album is not a sonic disaster. Neither is this a good album.
It is best forgotten, though as I do not find my progressive rock here.
