Rodrigo y Gabriela: Rodrigo y Gabriela (4.5/5)

Year: 2006
Label: Rubyworks
Genre: Acoustic Flamenco Metal
TRT: 42:49

Thank you Jay Leno for having this amazing duo on your show. After seeing them perform one track off this album, Iwent out and bought it. The things they do are mind-boggling, especially if you're a guitarist. They met each other in a Brazilian black metal band, and quickly realized they were both becoming increasingly disconnected and dissatisfied with the scene they were a part of. So they decided to do something different together, and this is the fruition of that aspiration. Blistering, unconventional, groovy and simply fun to listen to. Be sure and look up some videos of them playing too, because that intensifies the experience even more.

Can't wait to see what they come up with next.

01 Tamacun
02 Diablo Rojo
03 Vikinman
04 Satori
05 Ixtapa
06 Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin)
07 Orion (Metallica)
08 Jaun Loco
09 PPA (Pinche Personal Assistant)
