Ripio - En Alguna Parte de Este Mundo... Volvere Review

back to reviews

Artist: Ripio

Album: En Alguna Parte de Este Mundo... Volvere

Released: 2006

A mixture of styles and genres: Heavy Metal


Howsoever it could seem that Argentina is far away from Europe and that musical scene of this country is unknown on the other side of the planet, and if known, it is due to only a few bands, it is not so. No, I am not going to mention all Argentinian bands and musicians, which I know, as there are many worthy ones, although appearance of a single person's multi-instrumental project could be intersting for any country and the whole world so far.
I never knew about Ripio before. It is a project, where all voice and instrumental parts are performed by one person, whose name is Eduardo Costanzo. It is not bad Heavy sung in Spanish, which I instantly start comparing with another Spanish-singing band Mago de Oz from Spain.
I think that the voice is one of the arguable aspects in the music sound. No, it is quite OK, but for an underground project. It is necessary to imrove the singing skills so that the band could be ranked among the Argentinian, if not the world music leaders. As to the quality of the album mastering, I have nothing to say. The band should banish demo-self-production and think about the qulaity of recording, mixing and correct engineering.
Apart from that the instrimental part of the album is not bad at all. Instrumental tracks are very interesting. I cannot even think something like "I heard this before" or "someone already played this some time ago", not at all. Spirit and variaty of the album forbids any thought about any other similar instrumental works.
So, both fans of non-trivial Heavy and intsrumental fads should enjoy this project, which is quite a successful one and has more than one album.
