A devoted practitioner of cultural mashup, Argentine maverick Axel Krygier presents his fifth album Hombre de Piedra ("Man of Stone").

Unlike his previous records, which were assembled with a collage-like technique, his new one is a concept album, a delirious journey inspired by the French documentary "Lascaux: Le Ciel des Premiers Hommes" (about the famous palaeolithic cave paintings).

To tell the story of this caveman who speeds through the entire history of mankind in fast motion, Axel Krygier has explored new sonic and musical territories. Including his talent as a singer: his confident, captivating vocal performances occupy centre stage as they never had before and, even if one doesn't understand Spanish, his voice has a narrative quality which irresistibly carries the listener away.

Recorded in Buenos Aires, the album is a kaleidoscopic soundtrack which encompasses B movie lounge music (as in the title track) and bluesy dubstep (Invitame). Axel also settles old debts with rockabilly music (Tiempo y Tierra), spaghetti western (Mosquito), Balkanic rapture (Changarín) and even funky disco (Lo tendré que adivinar). In addition to Axel Krygier's usual musical partners, Hombre de Piedra also features his compatriot Daniel Melingo, and French artist Judah Warsky (who was part of Axel's band several years ago).
