Spanish proto–doom / psychedelic hard–rock MONSTER from 1978!!

A conceptual album featuring five long tracks with raw in–your–face sound and production, over–charged fuzz & wah wah guitar, powerful vocals with killer echo/reverb and studio effects. This is must for any hard rock / metal / heavy psych aficionado, reissued for the first time on vinyl and remastered from the original tapes. Including insert with liner notes and rare pictures from the archive of Vicente Feijóo, the original guitarist & vocalist from Zarpa. Heavy carboard sleeve + OBI.

Formed in Mislata, Valencia, in 1977 by four teenager friends (Vicente Feijóo on lead vocals & lead guitar, Eduardo Feijóo on bass & vocals, Javier Herviás on guitar and Jesús Martinez on drums), Zarpa Rock ("Claw Rock"), later shortened to Zarpa, evolved from a group called Wolframio. After spending most of 1977 learning how to play their instruments, they were approached by a management agency called Zeus Rock, joining their roster in company of bands like Doble Zero. Under Zeus Rock guidance, the band did their first recording: a conceptual album titled "Los 4 Jinetes del Apocalipsis" (The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse) which due to low studio budget, was recorded "live in the studio" in a single one–hour–and–a–half take. After the bankruptcy of Zeus Rock, the proposed album project was shelved. Zarpa shared stage with legends like Ian Gillan and later on, in the heyday of Heavy Metal in Spain, they managed to release two more LP’s which established them as a very popular band, even opening for Barón Rojo, true Metal Stars in the early 80’s. They’re still in active.

"Pretty much heavier and more loaded with crazed lead guitar than any of the other big ones from Spain like Storm, Tapiman, Leño or anything else I can think of" – Rockadrome

"Their music combines the slightly bluesy mid–70s Spanish hard rock sound of bands like Storm, which channeled Sabbath and Deep Purple, with a just–this–side–of–NWOBHM early heavy metal sound" – Shit–Fi

one of the rarest Spanish hard rock / metal album ever released. It appears on top of want lists of heavy metal collectors worldwide and original copies are impossible to find (tough collectors in Spain even doubt its existence!) being even rarer than the first album by Spanish progsters Atila!

It was recorded by four young long-haired musicians from Mislata, Valencia, in a budget studio and in only one take and released in 1978 on a tiny private label. It¿s a conceptual album featuring five long tracks with raw in-your-face sound and production, over-charged fuzz & wah wah guitar, powerful vocals and studio effects, in a similar vein to other Spanish underground hard rock bands from the 70s like Tapiman. This is must for any hard rock / metal / heavy psych afficionado, reissued for the first time and remastered from original master tapes, including a booklet with liner notes by Spanish heavy metal expert Jos¿ Luis Granado and rare pictures from the archive of Vicente Feijo¿ , the original guitarist & vocalist from zarpa.
