Bauda Sporelights on Limited Edition LP
Available for the First Time on Vinyl!
Chilean progressive rockers Bauda unleash their third full-length Sporelights in via Sweden's Temple of Torturous Records. Initially founded as a solo project by guitarist/vocalist/chief-lyricist-songwriter César Márquez in 2006, Bauda takes their influence, both musically and lyrically, from the great landscapes of their homeland Chile to create some mesmerizing music that merges beautiful progressive melodies with dark cinematic ambiences.
It was only in 2012 that Bauda have grown into a fully lined-up group, when Márquez recruited Nikolas Recabarren on drums and Juan Díaz on bass, who proved to be the exact components needed to create the power and beauty behind second full-length Euphoria...Of Flesh, Men and the Great Escape. In 2013, Edgardo González joined the band on keyboards and they started working on new songs to include in a new full-length.
The band's next step was inviting René Rutten from Dutch alternative rock act The Gathering to produce their new album Sporelights, and the result of this wonderfully collaborative effort that lasted for nearly two years, is an astonishing seven-song album that once again confirms their flexibility and talent for crafting powerful, intimate and poignant music.
Revolving around the perpetual struggles of men against the enslaving nature of modern societies, this new effort displays a powerful and dynamic progressive rock, which paired with beautiful, dramatic orchestral ambiences create a majestic record that is so compelling it lures you deeper and deeper with each repeated listen. Representing a confident progression from its predecessor Euphoria, Sporelights proves to be yet another career highlight for this still evolving group from Santiago, Chile.
