Esplendor Geométrico is a Spanish industrial band. The band was formed in the early 1980s by Arturo Lanz, Gabriel Riaza, and Juan Carlos Sastre, who had all been members of El Aviador Dro Y Sus Obreros Especializados.
They took the name Esplendor Geométrico from a futurist poem. In 1981 they released their first single, "Necrosis en la Poya", in the Tic Tac label, followed by their debut LP, Héroe del Trabajo / El Acero del Partido in 1982. In 1985 the band formed their own label, Esplendor Geométrico Discos, and released their second LP, Comisario de la Luz / Blanco de Fuerza.
Their highly recognisable style of harsh industrial rhythms was developed on two further albums - 1987's Kosmos Kino and 1988's Mekano Turbo, the latter considered by many to be the definitive EG release. After the 1989 live album Live in Utrecht, future releases would appear on the Geometrik label.
