80 HS 35.052 Obus Preparate LP 1981 Picking on a Spanish hard rock album from '81 for being full of stuffy/bluesy 70's rock would be unfair. Even I must confess they pull off this genre rather nicely. There is however a quite remarkable side to this debut as well, like the killer "Pesadilla Nuclear"being damn close to Power Metal and crushing numbers like "Petrodolares"and "La Escalera"displaying a level of quality and heaviness the band never quite got back to.

Just don't expect them to sound much the like cover art, keep an open mind and you might enjoy it too..

470 ZL-663 Obus Dejarse La Piel LP 1986 *sigh* It's time for 'the melodic album'. Not every single song is completely awful though - several of them are just plain boring. "Jucio Final" is the exception, qualifying as 'quite good' thanx to a rather interesting riff in the bridge. *sigh* It's time for 'the melodic album'.
