Arima ez da Galtzen

Rated 3/5 (60%) (2 Votes)

Kartzarot is a Spanish band that's been around since 1989 with only a few demos and compilation appearances prior to releasing their debut, Arima ez da Galtzen, in 2015. The album is characterized by simplistic, 80s-style Hard Rock/Heavy Metal featuring gritty vocals and guitars with a decent sound. The lyrics appear to be in the band's native language (Spanish or maybe Basque, the info sheet they included isn't in English so I'm not sure) and are a bit clunky. They don't mesh with the music as well as they could. The songs are formulaic, occasionally warranting a foot tap, but generally leaving little impression once they end. The promo materials include names like Dokken and Lynard Skynard, which I assume are influences, but I hear a band like Unrest more than any American group. To me, Kartzarot sound like a really good bar band but not much more.
