This would be the 2nd release from Puya...the only band I know nutty enough to mix latin salsa with metal and actually pull it off. For those of you already farmilliar with Puya, this album shouldn't disappoint. Keeping consistant with their first release, there is crazy percussion, sweet guitar fills, thumping, popping bass, and the lyrics are still a healthy mix of Spanish and English. There is a slight hip/hop flavor on a few of the new tunes "Ride" and "No Interferance", but it's all good. "Semilla" is a short, moody instrumental in the middle of the album prepping you for the 16 or so minutes of hidden musical madness at the end. Good stuff.
