Metal Argento

Sin dudas, escuchar a Fughu no es apto para hacerlo en cualquier momento. Y esto no es algo bueno, ni algo malo. La dimensión de una las bandas de metal progresivo más interesantes del país remite tanto a Dream Theather como a Queensrÿche. Independientemente del genero, lo que impacta en Lost Connection (2020), tercer disco de la banda, es la teatralidad de la obra. La incorporación de Renzo Favaro (voz) enaltece a Fughu. Remarcar la teatralidad mencionada anteriormente es crucial, pero no solo eso. Favaro trae aire fresco, una vuelta de tuerca. Particularmente por sus interpretaciones y porque puede jugar y diferenciarse en múltiples matices y colores.

Fughu no está pensada como una banda de rock progresivo”. Ariel Bellizio desarma en una frase lo que el curso de la charla daba por sentado. O lo que anuncia, incluso, la propia web del grupo. Así sigue: “Es el mote que le pusieron, porque es donde entra. Pero Fughu está pensada como una banda de rock”. Aclarado el panorama, la explicación todavía cuadra con el viaje que propone Lost Connection, su tercer disco de estudio, editado este año antes de la pandemia. (more…)

Prog Wereld

The Argentinian band Fughu made a big impression on me in 2013 with its two simultaneously released albums “Human – The Tales” and “Human – The Facts”. I predicted that this band from Buenos Aires would put Argentina on the prog map. Unfortunately I have not received much good progressive music from South America since then and Ariel Bellizio’s band also took seven years to release a successor. (more…)

Metal Temple

Argentinian band FUGHU formed in 1998 in Buenos Aires. It wasn’t until 11 years later in 2009 before their debut album “Absence” was released. They released 2 more albums “Human: The Tales” and “Human: The Facts” both in 2013 and now in 2020, bring their fourth album “Lost Connection” to the scene. The band is Progressive Metal with plenty of influence from other genres including jazz and classic rock. This album has 10 tracks. (more…)

Music Waves

Once again relying on an impeccable production and a high quality mix, the album starts on the same bases as its predecessor in a polymorphic progressive rock  made of tortured contractions and focused on a strong narrative conception. The Argentines tell their music, and the story is the thread that leads the melodic structure of the  tracks. Santiago Burgi’s sometimes slightly overplayed singing has clearly progressed and the expressiveness is now at the service of the music, even if it undergoes some ways reminiscent of the rock opera works of a Paolo Vallerga and a certain not always unpleasant theatricality on ‘Call Now’ in particular.
