I was brought up in a christian home My father was a priest, he died when I was sixteen, two years earlier my grandfather had committed suicide, death always seemed to be around me I think this is the basis for my hypochondria. When you experience that those closest to you die when you're that young, when you're not fully developed, you're almost bound to think it will happen to you too I'm still struggling with these implications, to know that you're going to die…when you have lost faith.
The main body of the new album was recorded live in an old school house in the Stockholm archipelago in two sessions some months apart in It was soon evident that this time around it would be appropriate, even necessary, to use the band-term to describe the newly emerging Tarantula Waltz Mk 3.

Psycho De Mayo. Came Out Of The Grave. Mientras Camino. The Problem. I'm On Fire. Harry Plones. The Highschool Lockers. She Wears A Shirt. Nicotine Records. Sons Of Tarantula. Schwuler Hund. Thee Minks. Svart dd Verden. This makes this album a very memorable album and one who stands out from the crowd. I am a fan. Tarantula were one of several Spanish progressive bands of the late seventies whose sounds were influenced by both the European masters of the early seventies ELP, Yes, King Crimson , as well as by some of the more elaborated and emotive Italian symphonic bands PFM, Le Orme.
The resulting best of both worlds is an album that is both very creative and highly addictive to listen to. Lead singer Rafael Cabrera reminds me a lot of the Italian prog rocker Fabio Casanova Sad Minstrel with his ability to jump from a folksy and intimate soft crooning passage to full-blown operatic peaks and even to gutsy heavy rock with little apparent effort. As an aside, if you like this album then Sad Minstrel will also likely appeal to your tastes.
You would think a band with a front-man like Cabrera would have enough of a shtick to get noticed. But these guys have more arrows in their quiver. Keyboardist Vicente Guillot shows great skill on a variety of keyboards including mini-Moog, piano, Hammond and even a mellotron. On top of the keys he provides the band with strings and flute courtesy of the mellotron which further reinforces the debt to Italian prog the band owes.
But right at the one minute mark spoiler alert! A real surprise, but more importantly the band serves notice that listeners should expect the unexpected for the next forty minutes or so. But just when you think this one will quietly work its way to a close, the band starts to build momentum toward a climax of keyboards, organ and guitar the belie the modest opening of the song.
And so it goes. Lots of sounds here, ranging from symph to psych and several places in between. Gruesome Corpse Tarantula Stein. Radioactive Research Tarantula Stein. Burying The Evidence Tarantula Stein. Side Effects Tarantula Stein. Big Bunnies Tarantula Stein, Mancini. Evening Snack Tarantula Stein, Mancini. Blasted Arachnid Tarantula Stein, Mancini.
