Presagios

October Equus

In cart Not available Out of stock

"This, the fifth studio album by Spain’s long lived avant-progressive rock band, moves further into the realm of the ultra complex, RIO-style, avant-progressive; yes, there is a bassoon so it’s the obvious thing to say, but some of this is reminiscent of U Totem, at least in a ‘massive chops performing catchy but also ultra-complex compositions’ kinda way. This is a great one for fans and probably an album of the year release! Highly recommended!" Wayside

This track was released in 2019 on a gift CDr for buyers of the October Equus album "Presagios" in the Japanese market. The composition dates from the time immediately after "Saturnal", when most of the material that shaped "Presagios" was written. For this recording, the nucleus of October Equus Ángel Ontalva on guitar, Víctor Rodríguez on keyboards and Amanda Pazos Cosse on bass, had the help of the members of the Russian space-prog group Vespero Vitaly Borodin on violin, Ark Fedotov on synthesizers and Ivan Fedotov on drums. Ángel is the author of the piece, and was also in charge of the mixing and mastering. credits released November 6, 2020 Music by Á. Ontalva

Isla Purgatorio

October Equus Quartet

"Brand new album from one of the best bands avant-rock-veering-into-electric-jazz from Spain right now, filled with good playing, and good compositional structures for them to hang that playing on... A stupendous release - maybe my personal favorite of a number of great releases by them so far. Hugely recommended!"

Permafrost

October Equus

"Clocking in at barely over 40 minutes, Permafrost is an intense, cohesive effort that packs more punch in its very restrained running time than most 70-minute albums... Among its many qualities, this disc proves that “concept albums” can be something different from the overblown messes that have unfortunately become synonymous with progressive rock, and that a purely instrumental palette can be used very effectively for storytelling purposes."

Saturnal

October Equus

In cart Not available Out of stock

"With Saturnal October Equus from Madrid establish themselves as the point of reference for the iberic avant-prog scene. Edgy, hypnotic, fascinating, often with a leaden atmosphere, sometimes even gloomy, the album explores intricate harmonic solutions, in an endless counterpoint between Angél Ontalva's guitar (author of the remarkable CD artwork too), saxophone and keyboards. The result is greatly solid, with unexpected melodic passages which can be considered in the middle between Starless and Bible Black by King Crimson and Henry Cow structural density. The thirteen tracks of Saturnal show a dizzy chasing of ideas, carried out with conviction and care of details."
