Progressive Rock & Progressive Metal - Logo
Hábitat is an extraordinary Argentina band that will attract lot of attention, capable to satisfy a varied Progressive Rock legions. Habitat is an amazing Symphonic Progressive Rock band, with a large diversity in expressions, their music is full of references to the classics of the years 70's. Led by the immensely talented guitarist, songwriter, bass player and singer Aldo Pinelli, who along with three musicians really delivers high quality musicianship, creating an extremely diverse array of musical arrangements. "Tratando De Respirar En La Furia" is a new album featuring ten incredible tracks, stuffed with fine guitar works, solid keyboards, punchy bass and the drums giving a primal feel to the arrangements. The first track on the album will connect most closely with "Crucis" and "Genesis", "La Luna Roja y La Montaña Negra" is totally symphonic introducing an amazing atmosphere to the album. "El Humo Delator" and "Periplo" are extremely beautiful tracks where guitars dominated all time, "Lenguaje Y Ambar" is beutifull balad showing a real South America folk influences. "Torres", "Detenido Por El Viento", "Las Musgosas Rocas Del Muelle" and "Desde La Ventana Del Castillo" are amazing symponic and melodic tracks in the line of "Pablo El Enterrador", "Crucis" and Bananas", but "Pastores Del Renos" is a pure "Le Orme" influences and the last track "Juego De Niña" (Gioco Di Bimba, from "Le Orme") is like a tribute from Aldo (Habitat) Pinelle to the one of the famous Italian Progressive Rock bands. The music from Hábitat is so clean and symphonic, If you real like 70s prog, in the vein of bands like "Crucis", "Le Orme", "Genesis", "Mia", "Vox Dei", "Atempo", "Pablo El Enterrador", "The Invisible", "Yes", "La Máquina de Hacer Pájaros", "Omnia", "Sui Generis", "Bananas" and many other Progressive Rock groups that we know and love, you will probably want Hábitat in your collection.

Hábitat began in the early '80s and stopped their activity with two concerts at General San Martín Cultural Center, in October 1984. In those concerts they also played soft acoustic moments of antique music with flute.

A brief second period took place in 1987 with some new musicians. This new music was played with  much more rythm. But only performed four shows at pubs, recording a demo with two songs.

In those two periods Hábitat played a symphonic and progressive rock emphatising on  the melodies, writing -in a literary aspect- fantastic images inspired on Tolkien's Books, with words in Spanish.

The New Era of Hábitat began in 1994. "Historias Olvidadas" ("Forgotten Stories"), the first independent production, includes old songs from two other periods played it with new arrangements. "Historias..." was released in cassette in September 1997 and latter in album (October 1998) with four bonus tracks.

The second production, "Baúl Repleto De Sugerencias" ("Chest Filled Up With Suggestions") - June 2001 -, is a darker album than the former one, with actual sounds and new tendences.

In October 2006 the band released "Puente" ("Bridge"), the third cd that includes the most powerful songs from the band.

The fourth album, "Tratando De Respirar En La Furia" ("Trying to breathe amidst fury") was released in August 2010. The shows include dancers, human statues and selected clothes.
