"For sure this is one of the most obscure and most excessive South American heavy-progressive rock albums of the early '70s. The Bolivian power-trio released Gusano Mecánico on Discolandia label in 1974. Inspiration for their music is based on the British Rock invasion, on groups like Led Zeppelin, Cream, Pink Floyd and Emerson Lake & Palmer, but also on American heavy guitar sound like Hendrix or Blue Cheer. This concept album contains six songs which are long compositions with extended instrumental parts -- and the sound is extremely energetic with various dynamic changes. You hear creative, heavy guitar riffs & psychedelic solos, fast and furious drums (double bass) and complicated basslines. The South American wildness and the excellent musicianship make this album a unique psychedelic masterpiece with various interesting influences. This reissue is a master tape release (excellent sound), presented with the original cover-artwork. Included as a bonus is a four track 7" EP with picture sleeve (English lyrics), recorded in 1969/70. Highly recommended -- originals in good condition are nearly impossible to find! (Ltd edition 500 copies, 180g vinyl, gatefold heavy sleeve + 7" EP)."
