Bubbling under: Ultimo entardecer (Bacamarte)

Few prog rock albums are so good and yet so unknown as the 1983 classic Depois do fim (After the end) by Brazilian band Bacamarte (image credit). The absolute highlight on this album is the 9 minute epic Ultimo entardecer (Last twilight), with tremendous guitar works, including notes that will haunt you forever once you heard them, as well as an amazing keyboard/guitar exchange that seems to come straight from a Genesis album in terms of style. The fantastic vocals by Jane Duboc contribute to the unique sound of this band - both the clarity of her voice, and the singing in Portuguese.
