La Soledad de las Sombras
Kromlech is a progressive rock group from Mexico whose debut CD La Soledad de las Sombras
(The Loneliness of the Shadows) is an instrumental suite of 51 minutes of continuous music
based on a symbolist theme. In it, a raven searches to find four shadows, who all have to die.
Though obviously inspired and influenced by the South/Central American preoccupation with
death, the CD is neither negative nor depressive in style. As a matter of fact, it is an
emotional interpretation of a negative theme in terms of classical structures, emotional
atmospheres and constant changes in mood, musical arrangements and instrumentation. A very
positive moment in rock.
