Limited vinyl reissue of the first LP from Spanish industrial band Esplendor Geométrico. An industrial classic originally released in 1982 on the Tic Tac label, Esplendor Geométrico's sound was already devoid of aggressive lyrics and even titles for their tracks (the A-side, El Acero del Partidio, is spread across five tracks while the B-side, Héroe Del Trabajo, has three tracks). Their sound had already begun to acquire a personality of its own, not fully mature but with an astounding austerity nonetheless: repetitive litanies infected by impossible machine sounds, noisy buzzes, organized metallurgy and newscasts from Eastern Europe, that glare by moments. For many fans, this is the best Esplendor Geométrico album and remains an absolute classic. Limited to 700 numbered copies; includes the cover and insert of the original, incredibly rare first edition.
