"This band should be HUGE!! The fact that it is not (they actually are not even currently signed to a record label) is a testament to both bad marketing and the general public's lack of imagination. This band single handedly created a new genre: "salsacore". They bring elements of tropical music, hip hop, jazz, and speed metal together to create what I consider a masterpiece. The variety and musicianship in this recording is impeccable. Some songs are so extreme that you don't know whether to dance or headbang. My advice: do both and buy this CD. You will not be dissapointed."
Great mix of different types of music

"On FUNDAMENTAL, PUYA brings us some hard rocking songs that have a latin feel to them also. The percussion and horns on this album show us something unique and different from what is being played today. OASIS, FAKE, FUNDAMENTAL,MONTATE, are good songs that start the album off and they rock. WHATEVER is an average song, it is mostly rap, but the music is still there with some good beat but I personally could have done without the rap. RETRO slows down abit, but as the song plays on, it picks up its tempo and turns into a hard rockin song. KEEP IT SIMPLE is another slower song, it has some positive lyrics, but I think it is just an average song SAL PA FUERA picks the tempo back up and is a good song to rock to. REMORA is a fast, furious song that kicks ... and should make all the hardcore fans happy. TRINIDAD is a tribute to the boxer Felix Trinidad. Even though I dont care for the fighter myself, I wont hold that against the song,, it rocks. SOLO is almost a totally salsa song that the listener will start to dance to when played. NO INVENTES is the last song on the album. It has a heavy bass to it and rocks but it leaves me wanting for more. All in all, FUNDAMENTAL is a good album for metal fans who want to hear alittle spice to their music"

"I have friends into heavy music of most varieties, so the fact I didn't come across this band for half a decade shows you that they had some marketing problems. I only learned about these folks when I stumbled on an old sampler disc that Megadeth distributed. Puya's song on it grabbed me, but this CD was even better than I expected. As with Max Cavelera's tribal metal or Candiria's jazz metal -- fusions that, when described rather than heard, sound as though they won't work -- Puya's music offers an unlikely combination: Latin, metal, and rap/funk musical elements. The result is sometimes fun and sometimes intense but rarely boring. They'll go from sounding like a heavy-metal Santana on one song to sounding like what Incubus might have produced if their mothers had all been Puerto Rican. Good stuff."
