Margaritas Ante Porcos - Gluposti (2014)
The one and only album from this band from Latvia.
The band was a trio with a lineup of xylophone, percussion, drums, bass, guitars and vocals.
I thought this band was from South America, Argentina, based on the both the music and the band name.
Then I discovered they were from Latvia.
Hence, I am very surprised.
After several listening sessions, I have to say they comes across as a mix of Budgie and Gentle Giant.
Add a lot of King Crimson too.
The music is eclectic and also very hard. The band is a power trio, indeed.
The vocals is wild and so is the guitars.
The quality is unfortunate only half-decent and it is not an album finding much joy in my office.
