CULTURA TRES - more kind words on "El Mal Del Bien"

"Cultura Tres from Maracay, Venezuela, released their second full length album "El Mal Del Bien", which steamrolls the listener like a juggernaut. Dark doom/sludge mixed with many influences, especially the metal genres death/thrash and even nu metal, roars like a wounded beast and sometimes Cultura Tres come as close as possible to the South American uber-band Sepultura. This is the biggest compliment you can give to a South American band. It all started with Sepultura in South America and it will not end with Cultura Tres. Another band, which comes inevitably to the mind, is Los Natas from Argentina. It is not first and foremost the music, but rather the dark atmosphere and the exceptional sound. "El Mal Del Bien" is a musical revelation for those tired of the usual. Cultura Tres is the harbinger of the dawn of a new Doom/sludge era in South America. Outstanding!"
