Banda de la Muerte Album Review

Banda de la Muerte is a Stoner Metal Band from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The members are:

Seba Barrionuevo
Guillermo Gómez

Banda de la Muerte play a fast paced blend of Modern Stoner Metal mixed in with elements of hard rock.

This hugely talented band was posted here last year with their brilliant debut album which received acclaim all over the place.

Well these guys were never a band to rest on their laurels and the guys are back with their brilliant new album “Pulso de una mente maldita” due for release in 29th March 2012 just in time when they start their much anticipated European Tour.

I have to thank Banda de la Muerte for sending me an advanced copy of their amazing new album.

The new album is a 9 song and 32 minute blast of superb high energetic Stoner Metal riffs. All sang in the band’s native tongue again as like their previous album. But don’t let that put you off as these guys play a superb modern Stoner Metal riff that can rival any top-notch Stoner Metal band.

The 9 songs on show are all superbly produced and the band has come on leaps and bounds from their debut album. The songs are heavier, more fast-paced and have a great sense of passion around them.

My Spanish speaking skills are next to none but these guys make you really care about the music they are singing about. There are no hardcore/death grunt growls. Just superb clean vocals with high energy and passion all the way through the bands swift running time.

If you’re into fast-paced Stoner Metal then you need to check these guys out right now. As these guys are brilliant musicians and show how to play a mean fast-paced Stoner Metal riff over and over again.

Some people might think the album might be on the short side but I think it’s on the right time. As it has more than its fair share of top-notch Stoner Metal riffs to satisfy the most jaded of listener.

Standout tracks include – “Tiempo Muerto”, “Enspirtu en paz” and the awesome title track which is my fave track on this outstanding album.

As this bulls upon what the band have shown in the previous 8 songs. Brilliant high energetic Stoner Metal riffs with passionate vocals to match.

All in all this is a superb album by one of South America’s finest upcoming Stoner Metal Bands. It’s not hard to see why these guys are getting such a well deserved reputation on the international Stoner/Sludge Scene along with their fellow South American brothers in arms – CULTURA TRES . Who they are doing a few dates with in Europe as well. More Info Here.

If you can catch them on their European Trek I would recommend you catch them now. As these guys are awesome on stage. Well from what I have seen on Youtube.

But back to their outstanding new album. This album should rightly put Banda De La Meurte on the International Stoner Metal Map as a band to be reckoned with.

I urge you all to buy this brilliant album when it’s released in April 2012. These guys are going to become a lot more famous in the next 12 months or so. They have the material to back-up their undeniable talent.

If you want to hear more then go download their brilliant debut album for free from BandCamp and see why the hype is actually justified.

A brilliant album by a brilliant band. Great work guys.
