Stream of the Week 20 Feb 15: Gabezia – Bilanx
Posted by Reggie
It’s been a while since we’ve done a Stream of the Week for you. We hope to bring you more metal this way with a short and sweet description and then let the album stream do the rest. This week we bring you a Spanish band singing in their native tongue.
After a 7-track EP was released in April 2013, the self-proclaimed Alternative Basque metal band (from Basque country Spain) released their debut album, Bilanx, in November 2014. Their alt-metal tempo combined with some metalcore elements is a riff-heavy concoction backed by some softer harmonies. Interestingly, the album’s lyrics are sung in their native tongue. Overall, this is a band that is letting the metal do the talking. Personally, it’s not important to me to be able to understand the language as long as I get something out of the music. Gabezia scores well in that department. Check out the full stream of Bilanx below. If you feel like commenting, here is a question for you? Does it matter if you understand the language?
