SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE “Unblessed”
This is one of my discoveries of the year. Three girls and one guy making one of the most corrosive and solid death metal I’ve heard in Mexican scene nowadays.
Formed in 2012 in Monterrey, Nuevo León, the band released a quite brutal debut album called “Existential Murderer” by 2014. It seems like they’ve been active in local shows since then, and fortunately I meet them at a show in Mexico City, some weeks ago. Let’s they have clear how they want to sound as all tracks denote roots in American old gods, like Incantation, Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, etc, but they really forged good compositions with a particular perspective of death metal genre. Also, there is a big difference between this three -tracks promo, and the debut album, as everything is tied by mature musical arrangements and much better vocal lines. Actually, vocalist Zitlalic Gómez has an extraordinaire throat for guttural lines, and made an excellent work on both records. Definitely, she sings with more balls than many male death metal vocals I know in our small scene. Anyway, the band sounds excellent and quite balanced on live stage, and I’m sure you will hook instantly if you are an old skull, worshiper of rottenness and stinky music. It’s highly recommended!
Yep, I’m falling in love again. – Victor Varas
