DPRP (8/10)[1]

Chupacabras is the third album released by composer Phideaux Xavier.

While recording "Fiendish" in 2002, Xavier had begun work on an epic song called "Chupacabras". This song was not completed in time for inclusion on Fiendish, and instead, formed the basis for what would become the album Chupacabras. This album was made up of tracks that had been begun for the previous two albums but had never been finished. It took Xavier further into the progressive rock style with multi-part epics ("Ruffian on the Stairs" and "Chupacabras"), and resurrected a song from Xavier and drummer Rich Hutchins previous band, Satyricon, called "Titan".
