- Progressive Art Rock driven by the electric cuatro
Experimenting with unique folk instruments and different music genres, Abraham Sarache's implementation of the venezuelan cuatro as a new tool for rock and metal music shows a new path for alternative sounds. His debut solo album "The Gardener"(2016) made a big impression on the modern progressive/alternative rock scene due to use of the use of more traditional instruments such as ukulele, acoustic guitar and the venezuelan cuatro. During 2017/2018 Abraham Sarache went from solo artist to band and together with Tristan Turner on bass and Garri Snowman on drums they released "Kaleidoscope of Fears", an eclectic album based on the negative aspects of generation Y, supporting this EP with a tour around the Netherlands and Germany. In January 2020 they released their long awaited EP "Kaleidoscope of Dreams", a sequel to their previous EP, which discusses the positive elements of generation Y and their influence on modern society. Confirmed to play the pre-party at ProgPower 2022 in Baarlo(NL) and Totum Revolutum in Barcelona(ES), 2022 is shaping up to be the year where Abraham Sarache will show us their truly unique sound and skills on stage.

Hi guys, this is an interesting track for the alternative genre, as it harkens back to the more metal-inspired and experimental Soundgarden take on alt rock. I'd say this is a good thing artistically - I wasn't sure what to expect on the first verse, but the chorus is really quite the onslaught. I wavered on my personal thoughts of how into the track I was at different points, but overall I have to say the band comes across as very passionate and charged, and this counts for a lot in my books. It shows. The accent was possibly part of it for me, but it adds to your personal flair. I'd be curious to hear more of your work. This is a nice fusion.
I think your vocals have great potential but feel the overall style of your music does not highlight your capabilities strongly. I'd like to compare you to the sounds of Staind or Deftones... but hate comparisons as I think you are trying to also create your own thing. Perhaps a bit more melody and fluidity to the structure of your sounds would help the songs expand a bit more and eventually lead it to have more of a story. All in all, loved the scenes from the ocean in your video and the colors, great job!
