Experiencia Del Paso Por El Averno – Experiencia Del Paso Por El Averno
Self released – 2015
Rock, Doom, Drone
A battering call to arms. A haunting revolutionary cry. A demand for more meat for the vultures. Cause the vultures want more and more and more and forever more. Experiencia Del Paso Por El Averno opens your heart and mind and sends your blood racing with opening track Agnosis of their first self-titled album. A side-project for the bassplayer and drummer of Annimal Machine, as they wait for their guitarplayer to return home and finish the new album. Back to the opener; the one that pummels and pounds and has you rising up, flag in hand and antique sabre in the other. How incredibly great that track is and how high they set the bar for the rest of the album. I will leave that up to you. I for one was overwhelmed and waited for the next stroke or eerie trumpet call to get on a plane, horse or donkey and ride to the nearest battlefield. But even though they keep up the gigantic gestures between the two of them, that high pitched fever they evoked at the start soon settles into a brooding little rise in temperature. With every track that follows they seem to take it down a notch. Not so much in energy, ambition or prowess, but more because it would have been impossible to keep the stakes that high. Is this a bad thing? I think not, otherwise there would have been revolutions going on across the globe and all stupid annoying extremists (in every category) would have been slaughtered… (O’ so it is a bad thing?) Nevertheless, we experienced a righteous track through the netherworld, saw the sun’s extinction and learned much from the wind… And we know there are others like us… Everywhere… We only need to rise up… Fight the good fight; and Experiencia Del Paso Por El Averno will urge us on!
