Description :Prepare yourself for an experience that's simultaneously otherworldly and assaultive. On paper, the music of Guapo reads like a riddle - the British quartet's sound is based around ideas like controlled chaos, atonal harmony, uplifting darkness, and beautiful destruction. Nothing about the band or their work seems to adhere to even the most open-minded set of preconceptions about the meaning of umbrella terms like 'rock', or 'progressive', or even 'experimental'. But when you abandon the need to reconcile any of these concepts with each other, and simply let their latest album, History Of The Visitation, speak for itself, everything becomes radiantly clear.

History Of The Visitation is the ninth album from the forward-looking foursome, and their second for Cuneiform Records (their first one was 2004's Five Suns), and they've since released Black Oni (2005) on Ipecac and Elixirs (2008) on Neurot Recordings. The band's return to Cuneiform finds them following through on the kind of epic constructions that sprung forth from the aforementioned albums. The record is dominated by the 26-minute tour de force 'The Pilman Radiant', offset only by the 11-minute journey 'Tremors from the Future' and the considerably more compact sonic sculpture known as 'Complex #7'.

The band now comprises drummer and founding member David J. Smith with mainstays Kavus Torabi (Cardiacs, Knifeworld) on guitar and James Sedwards (Nøght) on bass, joined by recent addition Emmett Elvin (Chrome Hoof, Knifeworld) on keyboards.

Both the CD and the limited-edition vinyl versions of the album come with a bonus DVD featuring a spellbinding performance of Five Suns filmed at Nearfest 2006 in Bethlehem, PA, and King Lindorm from the 2007 Rock In Opposition Festival in Carmaux, France. This is the only live footage of the band available to the public and features former member Daniel O'Sullivan of Ulver and Sun 0))).

Active in one form or another for nearly 20 years, Guapo's sound has evolved from its punk-rock origins to the band's current avant-rock stance, but the energy is always there.
