BAND AND RECORD OF THE MONTH
Coming from Brazil, Eduardo Aguillar comes after more than 20 years, in his musical silence, and a musician belonging to some of the important groups of Progressive Rock in Brazil from the years 80, such as "Vitral", "Coração de Leão", "Disciplos do Sol" and others. Finally, Eduardo releases his first debut album called "Plano Sequência". In his childhood, Eduardo met the style progressive rock through his older brother, who always brought home, the releases of the leading bands of progressive rock of the 70s, "Yes", "Genesis", "Pink Floyd", "Emerson Lake & Palmer", and many other. So, always listening to the musical influences of his brother, Eduardo Aguilar soon falls in love for the progressive rock style. His music is totally instrumental, full of progressive influences, including many instrumental sections with sophisticated atmospheric and epic arrangements, which turn into beautiful symphonies. The Eduardo's music style, is well diversified, and travels through many references as Symphonic Progressive Rock, Neo-Prog, Classic Music, also including some Brazilian rhythms, his compositions are similar to adventurous and epic soundtracks movies. Listening carefully to the album, from all five tracks, I can clearly say that, all of them are amazing, however, here are my preferences: "Coliseo", "Perto Do Fim", "Plano Sequência" and "Antigos Caminhos". If you like bands such as "Yes", "EL&P", "Camel", "Anthony Phillips", "Mike Oldfield", "Alan Parson Project", "Saga", "Steve Hackett", "Starcastle" you will love Eduardo Aguillar's music. "Plano Sequência" is a beautiful masterpiece, glimpsing musical styles in the line of Classic music, Symphonic, Epic and Melodic, a mixture that crosses and exploits a variety of genres and influences. A very strong album and a fantastic musician, showing the world that, Eduardo Aguillar already is a strong name around the best Progressive Rock performer from Brazil to the world. "Plano Sequência" is a set of amazing and beautiful classical symphonic songs, interspersed with strong instrumental interludes. There is a delicate atmosphere around all songs, which leads the listener to a "Dreamspace" full of energy, that infuses the whole album. Brilliant and incredible, an amazing album and a fantastic musician, highly recommendable...
