|......................................THE BAND AND RECORD OF THE MONTH|
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. Brilliant, fantastic, an amazing album and band, highly recommendable...
