BANDA DE LA MUERTE: review from Denmark

Review from Metal Revolution, Denmark

"Banda De La Muerte (Spanish for ‘band of death’) is a heavy rock and stoner band from the Argentinean capital Buenos Aires. It is not every day that I have this unique opportunity to listen to metal from Argentina, so listening to the promo copy of their new album Puslo De Una Mente Maldita was a true pleasure.
Things got spiced further on when I discovered that all the lyrics are sung in Spanish language. I don’t understand much of it, but enough to grasp an idea what this music is about. Thus, Spanish language somehow fits perfectly for stoner/sludge metal. This album and its nine offerings are slow and mainly ‘laid back’ music. Still, there’s a nerve and attitude behind it, otherwise it will be extremely boring. That’s exactly what happens with the closing self-titled song “Puslo De Una Mente Maldita” which is kind of monotone, slow and depressive.

The production is fantastic, so is the artwork. Overall, Banda De La Muerte does deliver on Puslo De Una Mente Maldita. I was greatly entertained on this rainy Scandinavian day.

Esp. recommended for devoted followers of Black Flag, Melvins, Down, Superjoint Ritual and even mighty forefathers of the genre; Black Sabbath!"
