Jinetes Negros - Definitiva Mente (2017)
The fifth album from this Argentine band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of keyboards, guitars, drums, bass and Spanish vocals.
The band also had help from numerous others who provide sax, bass and vocals.
Jinetes Negros started out as a metal band and went progressive metal on their first albums. I caught up with their music on their fourth album (see review somewhere else in this blog) and the band had adopted a more crossover prog sound which included art and metal.
So I was looking forward to sink my ears into this album, their so far latest album.
The band has totally ditched metal and progressive metal on this album. So far, so.......
The band has replaced metal with some sort of pop-rock though. There are still a lot of art rock here and this is indeed their new genre. The band is now an art-rock band.
The vocals are still Spanish and it seems like they are happy to be a Spanish vocals band. Which is a good choice indeed.
The music is pretty good with a lot of guitars. There is a lot of vocals and guitar harmonies.
The quality is not great, though. The songs are a bit dull.... This is another decent to good album, I am afraid.
