Album Notes
After eight years of adventures through the Saharan deserts, with “Tribal Fires” the Madeira have gone Sub-Saharan, into the dark and mysterious depths of central African jungles. It’s a journey that finds the band exploring new sounds with a highly diverse album, ranging from the most aggressive to the most melodic songs (including a tribute to The Shadows) the band has ever done – and everything in between. There are 13 songs in total, of which two are covers: an original arrangement of Ernesto Lecuona’s “Jungle Drums,” and the Atlantics’ “Giant”.

This is the band's third full-length CD, following their epic "Sandstorm" and "Carpe Noctem" CD releases. If you are a fan of energetic, melodic surf and instrumental rock n' roll, or the mellower, melodic sounds of exotica, this is a disc that's sure to please. Recommended for fans of The Shadows, The Atlantics, Dick Dale, and Madeira lead guitarist Ivan Pongracic's former band, The Space Cossacks.

Fantastic album, fantastic band!!!


My English is too limited, really, to describe the awesomeness of it.

It is very moving, an emotional rollercoaster. It ends too soon, but leaves just the right impact. Very mature musicianship, you can tell the band has been around, yet innovative and exciting. Bold may I say.
Just genius.
Will take a lot of listens to digest it, this is serious work.

Ivan (lead) plays so many notes :-) but all of them are the right ones. He reached the point where chops, style and expressiveness are all united to convey the message.
It's musically packed, not a boring moment, so many melodic and rhythmic ideas in such a short time.
Really really moving and passionate too, makes you wanna dance and cry and howl and start fires (and surf?).

This top Surf instro act reaches new heights.
The rest of the band of course, do their part magnificently, as well as the (again) bold and punchy production. It hits you in the gut, love it.
Love the Baritone, the jungle drums, the theme, the way it evolves.
It really translates as a voyage through the jungle, an expedition to unknown mysterious tribes. Who needs lyrics?! It ignites your imagination in such a way, that feels like an adventure movie.

All the songs are amazing by their own, each conveying a "scene", with it's own atmosphere and instrumentation, done with great care for detail and emotional impact. Leading to the climax -
Those Chunka dripping bars in "The Ritual" just hit the skull, what a sound! After those piercing, emotional solos, it's a steady hypnotic trance of high energy Reverb. Like, "what you feel doesn't matter now boy, you've done your personal passage, it's RITUAL time now".

After listening to this album, one needs at least 1 hour of complete silence, It's a sensory overload...
Can you play something after Beethoven's 9th? No! you need to meditate a bit...

This album deserves to sell a lot and hopefully reach new crowds,
as it is the best rock music in the world at the moment.
