Esplendor Geométrico

Profil:
Esplendor Geométrico is a Spanish industrial outfit formed in the early eighties by Arturo Lanz, Gabriel Riaza, and Juan Carlos Sastre.
Saverio Evangelista joined with Arturo Lanz as the only remaining member in 1990.

Esplendor Geométrico comes from "Lo splendore geometrico e meccanico e la sensibilità numerica" written by Italian futurist Filippo Tommaso Marinetti.

Lanz now lives in Shanghai and Evangelista in Rome but the group remains active and continues to appear live.

I have been listening to the music of Esplendor Geometrico for a few months, alternating between many of their records. I had listened to the classic “Moscu esta helado” (and oddball compared to the rest of their music) many years before, since it would usually pop out here and there but never really went past it, which I can now contemplate as a mistake.

I think, their musical output can be divided in two categories: the “rough” stuff and the “hypnotic” or more “tribal” stuff, both are usually based on apparently simple, though usually interesting repetitive rhythms, with the “rough” stuff having more of a punk performance quality, sometimes getting into the Power Electronics realm, and the “hypnotic” stuff relying heavily on long textures and vocal samples. Both styles can be found throughout their whole discography and it’s not something tied to the band’s lineup changes, as far as I can tell.
You can see the jump from the old MS-20 and overall analog setup into the digital realm at some point, but other than that, the concept and quality remains, impressibly, the same for as many years as they have been active, except perhaps now there’s a more polished finish.

Overall, I love the music and feel that I was missing out for not knowing about it for so long, so now I must devour everything and try to jump start a small collection of releases. So here I am, reviewing a band from the 80's in 2020, the year of the plague.

When I think of the word Industrial... I think machines , gears , factories with tall smoke stacks. Esplendor Geometrico means exactly that to me. Hard minimal rhythmic machine music that grinds like a huge device that is cutting metal girders for large buildings. Though most would quote bands like Throbbing Gristle ,Neubauten & Coil as being the truest form of industrial , the music of Esplendor by far best describes the word industrial when applied to music.

So many good albums to choose from. For starters try Baleric Rhythms , Mekano Turbo & Tokyo Sin Fin for some well done metal machine made music.
