Gotic - Gegants I Serpentines (1978)


The second and final album from this Spanish band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of guitars, flute, keyboards, bass and drums.

This album was released in 2016 as a reworked version of the unreleased LP/album the band had intended for release in 1978. To avoid confusion about a comeback from this band, I have therefore put the year of the release as 1978.

Their Escenes album from earlier that year is regarded as a classic album. Not so much for the quality but for the sound.

The band continues down the same route again on Gegantes I Serpentines.

Lush concerto flute dominated instrumental symphonic prog.

There is a lot of both classical music and folk rock in their music. Music where keyboards and the guitars is supporting the flute, but are still playing an import part in the music.

The music is really flowery and lush.

There is also a lot of small details here well worth checking out.

Clocking in at almost forty minutes, this album is a good companion of Escenes and too deserve a place in a symphonic prog record collection.

This is indeed a good album.
