Album Notes
Crisalida (or Chrysalis in English) is an intermediate state during the development of the Lepidoptera. Out of its definition, it is not a band; it is a brotherhood. With direct and indirect actors, they have survived in a country that has been ungrateful and mean with its musical exponents for more than 15 years and without estimating success or popularity, finally, they graduate – after five albums – with “Terra Ancestral”. Produced by Daniel Cardoso (Anathema) at one of the best studios in South America; Tierra Studios.

Being the previous information compelling enough to like this 2015’s material, what these seven tracks are hiding go further: it is, widely speaking, reflexion, awareness and respect for Mother Earth through an intelligent and friendly message, full of light and decibels. Apart from the positive comments that the international community can deliver regarding the career of Crisalida (The Gathering, Riverside, Stickmen, The Crimson Project, Anneke Van Giersbergen, Anathema, Deep Purple, ASIA, Steve Hackett, among others), what they look for is, essentially, to convey their concern with winds of change.

It is not easy to carry the load of exposing some current issues related to global problems. There are few regional examples that are aware of the time that it takes to give a twist to the mentality always dominated by industry. However, the proposal of Crisalida arrived at the peak of the band; more mature, avoiding references and comparisons, the current quartet is concentrated in the south of its native country to inspire its hunger for music through the extinct Selk'nam and Kawesqar tribes, the over-exploited native forests and the governmental omission to address the problems faced, for example, by one of the last still alive indigenous people in Chile, the Mapuche.
Through this, Crisalida wants to become the voice of the silenced by force and not only of the oppressed in their country of birth, but also, of its regional peers. In simple words, to be one of the best exponents of progressive and avant-garde South American art with an emphasis on the content in a journey through its music.

While their sound clings – at a first instance - to many of the historical names behind conceptual folk music (Porcupine Tree, Dream Theater, Opeth), on this occasion, Crisalida nationalised itself through their own countrymen to inspire its work; Congreso, Fulano, Los Jaivas or Tryo regarding the musical side as well as the desert, the valley, prairies and glaciers to draw, with rhythms, images that convey the listener out of his or her comfort zone through atmospheres and different colours painting the forty four minutes of music, made in the south of the world. Crisalida, with “Terra Ancestral”, graduates with honours under an honest record, which is absolutely unforced. Growing up towards the authenticity that finds them fresher and renewed, in the difficult search for international recognition.
