Talos: The bronze android!

Talos - El Primer Androide

El Primer Androide is translated The First Android, and this first android is the new album from the band Talos from Honduras,

Tegucigalpa is the capital of Honduras, and the country’s largest city and was founded in the 17th century, and was a center of gold and silver mining. Nowadays the town is the center for the band Talos who make gold and silver shimmering and very good music!

Talos is a conceptual work of this trio from Tegucigalpa (Honduras) that performs progressive rock with fusion elements that is close to Canterbury. There are also passages that evoke the electronic music of the Berlin school as well as the sounds of the television series of those times. Now the myth of Talos evokes man’s longing for war, immortality, mortality, love.

Talos, the bronze android, was created with the help of the Cyclopes by Hephaestus, god of the forge and fire. The android was given to Minos, king of Crete, with the mission of protecting the island against undesirables. The automaton had a long vein that descended from the neck to the ankles, in its heel, a bronze nail secured the vein in which the ichor circulated, the blood of the gods that gave it life.

 Talos circled the island three times a day, throwing stones and sinking any approaching enemy ships. If this wasn’t enough, he ignited his metallic body and scorched invaders with the excruciating heat of his bronze, crushing them against his chest as they burned.

 Having claimed the Golden Fleece, Jason and the Argonauts headed for Crete in search of fresh water and supplies to continue their long journey home. Accompanying them was Medea, the powerful witch instructed in the magical arts by Circe. Deeply in love with Jason, Medea accompanied him during her mission by putting the insomniac snake to sleep and giving him magical potions and salves.

 Approaching Crete, Jason and the Argonauts were unable to land as they found Talos on the shore. Medea then mistook Talos for her spells, and promised to make him immortal if she would pull out the nail from his heel in return. Deceived by the witch, Talos spilled the ichor from his body like molten tin surrounded by a tear. He fell to the ground, dead. The first android was collapsed.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6841 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
