I am not even sure where to start with Triángulo de Amor Bizarro and this album: Detrás del Espejo (Behind The Mirror). Last year, the band from Galicia, Spain released their album oɹɹɐzıqɹoɯɐǝpolnƃuɐıɹʇ, which is the band’s name spelled backward and upside down. Without a way to promote the album due to the pandemic, they spent their time creating a new album.
This is where Detrás del Espejo comes in. The collaboration album features the band and their friends performing a bunch of new song. Each of these songs doesn’t represent the band’s sound but the sounds of the other artists. It’s a mish-mash of genres, including some I do not even know how to classify. And when I say “friends”, I don’t really mean friends. A lot of the collaborations were with artists that Triángulo de Amor Bizarro did not even know. The genres that are present are hard rock, industrial, pop, electronic, and even punk.
I have not given Triángulo de Amor Bizarro much of a listen besides this album. Apple Music recommended the band a while back with the song, “Fukushima” from the band’s last album. When I go back for samples, I find a lot of genres also. Nothing sounds like the one song that led me to the Spanish band. So I really don’t have an opinion about the band.
Honestly, this album scares me. I listen to tracks like “Syf, paga” with Esplendor Geométrico and I feel like I am watching a horror movie. The album is truly experimental. I am not sure if I want to venture into more music by this artist. Maybe I might go back to the band’s origins with their first self-titled album from 2007. A retrospect of the band’s life might shed a brighter light on this album if I listened from the beginning.
Don’t let us stir you away. Give the album a listen and judge for yourself then tell us what you think.
