Little is known of the whereabouts of former members of Factor 19 and is that little information can be drawn from them on the web and even less promotional sheet. Just who are locals and are defined as "Brutal Pop", but do not worry, do not take offense at the head hands swearing in Aramaic that this is an assertion made in plan joker. Eventually they recognize that theirs is to recover the spirit of hard rock and heavy metal of the eighties and early nineties. As a company is not bad but how they do it? I'd say that much of each other. "Campo De Sueños" was recorded at the Greek Records between May and June 2011 and is produced by Anne Paranoid.
The first thing we noticed when clicking the cd is the sound of the album, still raw and many arrangements have prevented the production and chosen carefully crafted to sound as close to a direct download of the band. Well, if they want to sound like this not for me to protest for this, of course the songs come to first.
After an "Intro" aftertaste with some church organ sounds "Roja Y Negra", which based on Red Eagle series is a proclamation to forget hatred and social differences that have been in Spain since the passage of time. As far as music is a fast paced heavy rock with touches of urban rock.
Slower cadence is "Vista Atrás" that at times reminds me so insistent wall of guitars and that Javier has a very sharp tone of voice as that of Silver.
"Campo De Sueños" was composed by Dani when he learned that his son Axel was coming. This is a track that speaks of hope and dreams. Musically heavy metal is fast and simple but effective, quiet interlude with a few strokes of the keyboard. Beautiful and moving in equal measure.
That are recalcitrant feminists calm the hard rocking "Mala Mujer" boasts not misogyny to the collective group of women, just a bad experience fever not satisfied with one of its members (or to quote the former miembras Minister Aido).
"Contra La Pared" has that rythm pimp of Beethoven R. A song that makes those happy feet automatically move and start doing air guitar non-stop.
The ballad comes on the heels of "Siempre Es Lo Mismo" and brings to the fore a track that unfortunately is all the rage, domestic violence, more specifically male violence. He tells us how he feels battered women, their fears and sorrows, their distress and distrust with the world, its fragility and sense of insignificance. It has a keyboard arrangements signed by Bea Garcia of the most stimulating.
"Musa" is the weakest song of the disc and the truth is that it is a cut without a soul, with nothing to say, on the contrary that the magnificent "Mendigo", where we describe the sad life of the poor.
"Cuadro De Sombras" is the cutting sugar cane in the instrumental, a powerful heavy metal sung in a somewhat rapped giving it a modern and strange at once with respect to the general tone of the disc.
By the end leave a cover, or rather adaptation. "La Dama Y El Rey" is neither more nor less than the transfer to metal's most famous work of German baroque composer Johann Pachelbel. We refer to "Pachelbel Canon" which sounds tremendously addictive.
A heavy rock work directly with raw, visceral sound that will appeal to rock lovers simple and easy to assimilate.
