Release date: January 15th, 2021
Here is a very interesting release as this death thrash band used to go by the name Renegades but changed it for the better as it fits the music better, the first release under the new moniker.
And from the start of Hipnosis, you hear this tremendous bass come in and it basically is heard through out the track but this isn’t aggressive as you would think to open up an album with as the vocals are perfect to get that out of the way, but back to the music this has a lot of breaks that take your soul all over the place as there is a ton of vibes on here and the title pretty much fits this and the musicianship really shines on here as this got better the more I listened it.
On Sumergidos en el placer y el dolor the band comes out storming like I would expect, this shows the death thrash I was expecting and it delivers well and when the bass solo comes in this took it to another dimension a fucking excellent track! and Destrucción del condicionamiento is up there as well with this really grabbing riff at the start and the vocals really stand out here but gets better as I can hear the band puts a lot of different hooks to their music and it really stands out, the ripping leads on here are amazing!
With a heavy bluesy vibe at the start of Inocencia consumida, this adds even more flare to this release as later it comes in more heavier but you have to hear the guitar work on here, its something else as it slows down midway through and gets insane vocally at the end and then the way the band ends it is just right, Dios hizo la carne, pero el diablo al carnicero, pretty long title for a long track as well, a very high speed track from the start and breakdown comes in that brings another edge to it as you hear a female vocal in the background as the main vocal is powerful as hell, but then it slows down even more but with this excellent lead to back it up as this really heavy vibe comes in and finishes off with a really hard fast fist pounding feel to it, good stuff.
To the title track El arte de lo oculto, kind of strange at the beginning due to the vocal effect used but it starts out heavy then a major slow down as the bass comes in then the guitars take over as it speeds up a bit more then the whole band goes off into this hypnotic sounding piece that feels like your spinning into oblivion, very interesting number, the closer Al borde del abismo, and this starts out really slow not what you would expect and it starts coming up very slowly and being the longest track on here expect a lot of changes as it gets heavier as it goes along and I mean that as the speed intensifies, and breaks down again half way but then it goes off at full force towards the end, good closer.
After hearing this a few times it grew on me to be honest, some might call this tech because all the changes, but its different for sure but its catchy as hell, all the compositions are written well and that is what caught my ear the most, a strong release no doubt.
