Cautiva is a single-man band. It is Jose Traviesso doing everything. Jose is a musician with roots on the classical area, he is an erudite composer and pianist. It happens that he also loves prog rock and technical metal and technical thrash metal. So he created Cautiva, a band that both shares his love for metal and his ability to write complex musical pieces.

You can actually check out his web site  and see that his musical experiences go beyond metal. Anyway, last year he made hard copies of his masterpiece "Human" and I was fortunate to acquire one autographed copy .

If you can picture a mix of King Crimson, Mekong Delta with emphasis in minor harmonic and melodic scales that are common in Spain, you would reach the point. In fact I invite you to dig it, check the links.
