14th Art Rock Show: Otra Dimensión

Ekos is een Mexicaans prog rock band die begon als een Pink Floyd tribute-band. Daar bleef het gelukkig niet bij… In 2012 werd het debuutalbum gelanceerd met al een duidelijk eigen sound. In 2015 vervoegde de talentvolle drummer, Carlos Clériga, de band en sindsdien heeft de band echt hard gewerkt aan nieuwe muziek. En die muziek kunt u deze week beluisteren.

Prog Archives review: “All that effort has been rewarded with the recent release of ‘Otra Dimensión’, their new album and one of my favorite 2017 releases so far, so it was worth the wait because Ekos took their time in order to give us a conceptual album, a masterpiece that I am happy to review right now, so I hope to light on some of my readers’ interest and why not, persuade them to get a copy of it.

What we will find here is an 11-track record with a total time of 47 in which we can appreciate spacey atmospheres, floydian nuances, some metal passages and also Wilson-like moments that all together flow perfectly, giving us (or me, at least) a wonderful listening experience that is amazingly complemented by its spiritual concept that talks about that other dimension. (…)

The album finishes with “Otra Dimensión”, which happens to be the shortest track and the one that says goodbye, a piano-oriented track that keeps the door open to moments of introspection and search for answers. A beautiful album by Ekos, please give it a listen, you won’t regret.”

Naast Ekos met het album Otra Dimensión hebben we deze week: The Flower Kings (Back In The World Of Adventures), Ozric Tentacles (Live At The Pongmasters Ball ), Grails (Deep Politics), Tako – U Vreci Za Spavanjeà, and Dashiell Hedayat (Obsolete).
