Stream of the Week 20 Feb 15: Gabezia – Bilanx

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?

    If I may make some comments from in-house:
    a) Nice one, Gabezia is really cool.
    b) I grew up with classical music. I listened to Wagner in German, Verdi in Italian and Offenbach in French. I didn’t understand a word. The voices were like beautiful additional instruments. So no, the language doesn’t matter if the music is good.
    c) Try telling a metal-hater that dark vocals are not just growling, they add a new, darker musical instrument. You will be told you are talking crap.
    d) People tell me I talk crap anyway, so (c) doesn’t bother me.
