Policromia - De animos partir... (2014)
The debut album from this Argentine band.
The band is a trio with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars and Spanish vocals.
There is a lot of trios in the prog world. Most of them with the same lineup as this band. The same lineup as Rush, in other words.
Policromia sounds a bit like Rush on their debut album. That is the only comparison between these two bands.
Policromia's take on rock is hard rock with some progressive influences. There is also a lot of punk influences here too. Not to mention blues too.
Hard rock with both blues and punk influences with some sprinklings of progressive rock. The Welsh rockers Budgie therefore springs to mind.
There is a lot of hard guitar solos here and the music is hard and powerful throughout. The vocals are OK for this type of music.
The music is decent enough on this album. It is sometimes feels like being parachuted into the middle of an artillery barrage. There is no really good pieces of music here and that is a let down.
Besides of that, this album and probably their second album too is well worth checking out.
