Patan - Acero (2005) Retail CD
What can I say of this album? Even though it has a few good things there are many facts that bring the whole album down to the rating I gave to it. Don't get me wrong, it's a truly worth effort in the mediocre argentine "metal" scene (where every asshole that has a guitar believes he rocks and he's the best and can go to stadiums so people can do the chorus with him in retarded ways).
The album is very well produced and so are the band's members. In fact, they are so produced it's amusing at some points, with the steel eagle logo, the fire, the metal everywhere, the motorbike, the tatoos, themore… leather... Yes, this band has borrowed a lot from Judas Priest, especialliy the leader, who literally cut his hair to look like Halford.
Anyway, let's go to what they offer in "Acero": just traditional heavy metal sung in spanish. It's not the best thing around, it's not too original and the songs' lyrics are pretty mediocre in whole (being the worst case the terrible "Putas, noche, calle y rock & roll" a pathetic ode to pathetism with faggotic and retarded sounds at the end), featuring a song clearly dedicated to Fidel Castro. I cannot support communism, knowing what it did and does to the countries under its dominion. "El vuelo del dragón", the opener, is a good tune but the lyrics are cheesy and the accents and pronunciation always feel forced (some people could say that's the worst issue of spanish metal but go hear Mago de Oz or Tierra Santa and you can see they sorted out this type of problem). "No voy a claudicar" and "Tratando de respirar" are the best tunes here by far and feature a good use of the instruments. The ballads are just nearly below the average and, sadly, they have that feeling of "I heard this before".
"Acero" it's a good signal in comparison to the path that many bands take in Argentina but Patán needs a lot of work for their next releases to avoid suffering the Primal Fear syndrome and the obvious comparisons with Judas Priest.
Check it out but don't expect anything epic or revolutionary.
