Editorial Reviews

This Peruvian hard rock band recorded their one and only album in 1972. Only fifty promo copies were ever made making it one of the rarest and most collectible albums in the whole Latin rock arena. The album is a lost classic, but their sound was very heavy for the time and their label did not think that there was a market for it. Today, however, the heavy guitars and dark atmosphere make it sound very contemporary. All lyrics in Spanish. Get Back Records. 2007.

Like Flower Travellin Band, Tarkus comes from a land that doesnt seem like it would have made an impact, but the power of Zep and Sabbath hit the 4 corners of the world. Tarkus hailed from South America taking there name from the Elp album (though sounding nothing like them). It is a great record of proto metal/doom with a Zep/Sabbath feel. The singing is all in Spainish, which i only know a little, but it doesnt take away from the music. Its almost poppy at times..but the guitar work and sound is awesome Iommi-like. Only 8 songs clocking in at just over 30 minutes..its too bad they never had anything after this..i would have loved to seen where they would have taken it. Apparently there is still a version of this band sans the singer(who is in some religious cult) is still playing in South America..someone should record them too.
