'Sombras Del Progreso' (2006,Estajanovismo) is the final Ekkaia release, a 25 track discography compilation.
Ekkaia's demo is also known as "Icon" demo and delivers seven tracks of their old screamo neocrust with dark melodies thrown here and there in the vein of their early releases (in their later releases they left their own personal sound and their recorded material (in "Ya hemos.." and "Demasiado.." ) is close to Tragedy's melodic crust). About 23 minutes total running time and descent sound quality.
Tracks:
01:Crossing the gates of my own dream
02:Esencia
03:The art of comprehension
04:Llorando en la larga noche
05:Perdido entre ilusiones
06:El ultimo pecado
07:A face in the sky

The band was actually called "Icon" for this demo

Thanks, I love the early stuff by this band (the 1st LP especially)! I totally agree with the assessment that they moved closer to Tragedy later on (we've talked about it in the past anyhow, so you know my opinion on this one) - a real shame...
