Soy Suspenso-Hotel Venganza

Omar Montanez, who is the power vocals behind this unique project, Julio Alvarez, the master guitar player, along with Alejandro Medina and Pol Gomez-they have pieced together a wonderful album here.  Rock, alternative, and some edge will keep you off your seats and rocking throughout the whole album, no doubt.  Earlier, you will recall I did a review for the English track titled, "The Anchor".  The song is just a mere example of where this record is skilled at, and you will be satisfied with the cover of R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion" as well.  Though, most of the music is in Spanish/Mexican sound, you get the groove, you get your rage and edge flowing.  Kicking it off with the album track, "Hotel Venganza", it may sound not as produced as well as one would like, but the  band has good intentions to tear the scene up.  The drums are excellent, one hell of a drummer, indeed.  Omar's vocals who why he worked so well with the respected Ty Oliver in Fiction Killer, before their split of one another.  "Banshee" is a beautiful instrumental, and done quite well, with beautiful arrangements and fine tunings.  This allows for diversity to be shown in this band, and that shows growth and also room for growth in them as well.  Still, not to be one-sided, but the song, "The Anchor", is my choice, for the best of the record, as well as the instrumentals.  I think overall, you'd have to say this record is a very good representation of what artists can do when they put their minds to it, and achieve what they go set out to do.  HOTEL VENGANZA is excellent, whether the production is top notch or not, bottom line is, the content, lyrically and musically is great.  If you can find it, or need to ask on their facebook page, Omar, or someone will be happy to assist you!
RATING: 9/10
