Released as a double vinyl album as well as CD, Don Cabellero’s Don Caballero 2 is a prime example of electric non-rock music often described by music writers in the 90s as “math rock” due its experimental complexities. Despite the daft song titles – which became a brief trend among bands in this field – Don Caballero 2 is a sustained opus of non-vocal exercises precisely delivered within a post-metal sound spectrum, almost as if Mahavishnu Orchestra were reincarnated for the cynical age of killing machines.
