"Continuo Renacer" is the self-titled debut full-length studio album by Spanish instrumental technical/progressive extreme metal act Continuo Renacer. The album was released through Indar Productions in February 2005. Continuo Renacer is a trio who consist of Javier Guiterrez on guitars, Arkaitz "Kako" Carrasco on bass and Imanol Aizpuru on drums. Fredy Pelaez guests on keyboards.

The music on the album features both jazz/fusion elements as well as some rather extreme technical metal parts not unlike the riffing style of Atheist, Spiral Architect, Blotted science, Watchtower and Spastic Ink. In addition to that there are also some more melodic/atmosperic jazzy/progressive parts in the music with references to artists such as Al Di Meola and Steve Vai. The music is fully instrumental except for the chant in the beginning of album opener "The Intruder". The musicianship is on an extremely high level and if you crave tech metal madness look no further. There are multible tempo- and time signature changes in each track and the structure of the tracks are generally complex. The force of the music is that it comes off rather accessible and melodic even though the level of complexity is so high. It´s a very hard balance to strike. Some tech metal can seem too aimed at musicians and exclude non-musicians totally but I don´t think that´s the case with Continuo Renacer.

The sound production is excellent to these ears. Clean and powerful. Some might find the production a bit cold and not organic enough but I think the sound suits the music perfectly.

"Continuo Renacer" is an outstanding debut album and firmly places Continuo Renacer in the premier league of instrumental technical/extreme progressive metal along with artists like Blotted science and Spastic Ink. It´s safe to say that I´m impressed and I find this album highly recommendable to fans of the genre. A 4.5 star (90%) rating is deserved.

Face fears...

Genre: jazz metal

Granted, blending jazz and metal is not a new thing, and bands like Cynic, Atheist, and Pestilence paved the way for the style that Continuo Renacer play on this album back in the 90s. But that is a minor point, what is important here as whether or not the Spanish trio are good at what they do.

And they are.

They deliver the goods.

While the influence from Cynic and Atheist, and to some extent also Death, makes itself felt throughout the album, Continuo Renacer do contribute a lot of elements of their own, suc has the use of electronic effect, pianos, guitar synths, and organs (especially in the 15 minutes closing track 'The Newborn'). They also embrace some more extreme elements such as blastbeats, a couple of which pop up every now and then. And even if they didn't that wouldn't matter that much to me, because this is overall a style that I absolutely love.

The album is full of changes, odd time signatures, quirky guitar parts, equally quirky bass figures, and drumming with the dynamics of jazz and the chops 'n' power of rock/metal. The bass is central in the mix and has that warm jazzy fretless feel. And with Continuo Renacer being an instrumental act, they are not held back by a vocalist, they have the freedom to really let it rip - which they do. Especially the last track is a wonderful flurry of riffage, slapping and popping bass, mellow passages, synths and effects, brutal odd time signatures and so on.

"The Great Escape" is a pretty awesome slab of jazz metal which should definitely appeal to fans of "Focus"-era Cynic, Atheist, Acid Death, and also "Spheres"-era Pestilence as well as post-"Human"-era Death (although the two latter a more removed in style from Continuo Renacer's sound than the three former ones). Fans of prog tech extreme jazz metal should definitely check it out!
