Iniciados: Marca de Anubis / Cantor de Jazz
Title: Marca de Anubis / Cantor de Jazz
Product Type: VINYL LP
Originally released in 1982 on the DRO label, La Marca de Anubis was the debut album by Los Iniciados, an obscure project related to legendary Spanish synth-pop band Aviador Dro. Always shrouded in mystery, Los Iniciados decided to hide their identities behind masks. The only visible and confirmed member was Arco Iris (Aviador Dro member Marta Cervera). According to rumors, behind the other nicknames were Biovac N (Servando Carballar, founder of Aviador Dro and DRO label head) and members of Spanish post-punks Alphaville. On La Marca de Anubis Jesús Arias of punk band T.N.T.) joins on electric guitar. The album was produced by Carballar and is an intriguing mélange of dark and eerie minimal synth/dark wave sounds with a post-punk edge. It is also highly influenced by The Residents, Dadaism, performance art and ancient Egyptian cults. La Marca de Anubis includes cult classics like "Peter Pan", "Soy El Vacío", and more. Remastered from the original tapes and presented with original artwork, a 12-page LP-sized booklet and a bonus 7" EP, El Cantor de Jazz (1982).
