2 stars Some months ago I was contacted via facebook by Esteban Lagger, member of this band in order to introduce me to their music, so I want to thank him for it, and for his patience, because I should have written this review ages ago. Infusión Kamachui is a talented band from Argentina who is giving its first steps in the musical realm, they have released so far two EPs and are looking forward to their first full-length album. This second EP is entitled "Equinoccio I" and features seven short compositions that make a total time of 27 minutes.

It opens with "Contranatura" which shares energy and power provided by guitars and drums, and also vocals with some strong vocals which have that peculiar style that make the last syllable longer, it is always larger. After two minutes a guitar riff appears while the bass repeats its notes and then the vocals reappear and the song finishes. "Al caer" starts with a kind of spacey atmosphere and then bass lines enter in order to create the rhythm, which will be followed right away by guitars and drums. The song flows and offers a heavy rock mood, but I honestly am not sure if their music fits in the progressive rock realm.

"Laberinto sepia" has a softer mood in the first minute, but later the guitars become heavier along with the vocals which in some phrases are even heavier, closer to the growling. After 3:20 there is another change in which we can appreciate cool bass lines, constant drums and a sexy sound complemented by backing vocals. I have a problem with this song, because I don't really like its first half, though its second is better. "Snoj" is the shortest track here, it features keyboards that produce spacey effects and experimental atmospheres that are fulfilled by the vocals, which I have to say, I am not fan of.

"Realidad en torsion" has to be one of the finest songs of the album. They make here a complex song with a mature sound (more than some of the previous) and a cleaner execution. It is pretty good despite its short length. "Langosta roja" is on the other hand the longest composition, and another good one. It starts with a calm mood, with piano, vocals and soft drums, they exchange passages here, I mean, soft-heavy-soft-heavy and create a dynamic piece. If I mentioned the last song shared a mature sound, this is even better, this EP can be proud of this track.

And the EP finishes with "Muerte", and that's how we all will end, dead. It has acoustic guitar and a soft voice that maintains the same rhythm during the three minutes, and that is how the music finishes. Well, I will be honest, I believe the band has a lot to do, I feel they do not have clear their path, they are still experimenting and trying to find their own sound, and though I am sure they will find it sooner than later (because they are talented) this EP is not for everyone's ears. I save a couple of tracks, but the rest are not truly memorable. That is why I will give it two stars, sorry if I am being harsh, but that is how I feel. However?

Enjoy it!
