Ekkaia

Sombras Del Progreso

Estajanovismo 37

Released on November 25, 2006

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!


This CD contains 25 songs and more than 1 hour and 14 minutes of music by one of the most influential bands out of Spain. With their dark heavy aggressive screamo, d-beat, crust style they are like no one else. You have to listen to understand why. “Sombras del Progreso” es un CD que contiene 3 de sus mejores trabajos. 25 canciones que nos llevan a través de diferentes momentos de la banda, que hacen de este un CD muy completo con alrededor de una hora y quince minutos de duración. Musicalmente podríamos decir para aquellos que no han escuchado a la banda, que es una combinación entre From Ashes Rise con Tragedy con sonidos, matices y personalidad propia, la música va desde un scremo violento harcorero hasta un crust melódico oscuro con arreglos de guitarra interesantes, y voces desesperadas y desgarradoras. Escuchando este CD uno puede darse cuenta del por que Ekkaia en estos momentos ha llegado a tener en tan poco tiempo el status de una banda lejendaría, que solo logran bandas con una o varias decadas de trayectoría, y también del por que es en estos momentos, una de las bandas que han tenido una gran influencia en el crust, d-beat, y screamo de la actualidad.

Ekkaia's "Sombras del Progreso" is the most furious album ever created. Something about the Spanish makes them way more ballsy than any other hardcore out there. Call Ekkaia what you will, "neocrust," "emoviolence," "melodic punk metal," "melodic crust," etc., I still can't believe this hasn't hit the punk/hardcore scenes in full force.

Ekkaia has a very unique sound. Most songs, averaging at about three minutes in length, have very dark introductions, building into light-speed melodic shredding. Vocals are both guttural and screamed in an irate fury. No "screaming verse and singing chorus" bullshit on this record, just utter insanity for over 74 minutes.

Liner notes include the lyrics in both Spanish and fairly decent English, with some pretty silly mistranslations like, "Where threes grew once, now walls grow, time blind of oppression." Although, what is understandable is pretty profound. What really speaks, however, is the musicianship on this record... simply incredible.

Standout tracks are: "Sombras del Progreso," "Arrastradxs," "El Ultimo Aliento," "Demasiado Tarde Para Pedir Perdon," and "Por el Oxido y la Maquina." They have two MySpace pages with music, so check them out. For real. And look how cheap it is. Buy it and support DIY, you cheap bastard.
