    The music is really great, but to whoever had the idea of adding mid-range filter and distortion to Hammil's vocals, come on... that's sacrilege!

    Thanks Marco, that is really nice! Congratulations!

    Now, back to the very unlikely connections topic (such as Lula Cortez/Popol Vuh), this has always reminded me of Univers Zero in some ways:

    About Som Imaginario, Matança do Porco really is their masterpiece, but the first two are very psychedelic in a similar vein to Modulo 1000, and very worth checking out.
