Banda de la Muerte Cover Art

BANDA DE LA MUERTE are a 4 Piece Sludge/Stoner Metal Band from Buenos Aires.

The members are:

Seba Barrionuevo
Guillermo Gómez

BANDA DE LA MUERTE play fast and furious Sludge/Stoner Metal influenced by Sludge/Stoner Metal bands past and present. The guys do add a cool Punk Driven energy to proceedings done Buenos Aires style.

I have to thank Xon for contacting me about his band’s superb 2010 S/T album. A eight song 33 minute blast of pure Sludge/Stoner Metal heavy and hard hitting riffs.

The guys bring nothing new to the genre but that doesn’t stop this album being a superb Sludge/Stoner Metal album with plenty of hard-hitting riffs.

The vocals have the right blend of tone and aggression to drive the music along. Even though the vocals are sung in the band’s native tongue, you never feel you are missing out not understanding what the guys are singing about.

I give the guys credit for singing in their own language and not bowing down to pressure to sing in English. You can just listen to the superb riffs on show from start to finish. As this album is full of them.

Check out the superb track – “Religion” which has some superb James Hetfield type growls and vocals.

Superbly produced. This is another top-notch album to download on BandCamp pay-anything-you-want deal.

As stated before not the most original album in the world but it’s a top-notch fast and furious ride from one of Buenos Aires top Sludge/Stoner Metal Bands.

Hopefully the guys will be releasing new material in the future as this album has definitely made me a fan of their work.

Highly Recommended.
