"matando güeros"
Year:  1993

Time:  38 min.
Lyrical themes: gore, social issues

BRUJERIA is a grindcore and thrashcore band hailing from Mexico. Their name comes from the Spanish language, meaning “Witchcraft”. Their extreme attitude involves the permanent use of urban militia masks, an old custom of refusing to perform live, and performing under pseudonyms to portray themselves as a band of Latino drug lords, and this attitude has been part of their success. Although they have recently performed live at locations across the United States and Latin America, at the very start of their career they were concealing their identities due to being supposedly wanted by the FBI. The sound of this album is exception due there were 3 bassists players at the same time. Essential.

"pocho aztlan"
Year:  2016
Country:  US
City:  Los Angeles
Label:  Nuclear Blast
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  13
Time:  36 min.
Lyrical themes:  gore, social issues
Genre:  rock
Style:         Grindcore

The initial impression about the album, ‘Pocho Aztlan’ is pure riff worship. Its a lengthy album containing thirteen songs of hard hitting metal having influences of death metal, grindcore and groove metal. Majority of vocals are Spanish, which made it difficult for me to understand it as far as lyrics are concerned. The album begins with a mysterious folk/tribal tone and all of a sudden you can hear police helicopters whirling down. ”Who wants celebration? Put your hands up.’’ The drums blast in with palm muted riffing. This is the title track to begin the album with. An extremely moshable song, with a very unorthodox vocal style which sounds raw and perfect being sung in Spanish. ‘Pocho Aztlan’ is a worship of guitar riffs, mind-numbing drumming and one of its kind chaotic vocals you would have heard. Roughly sixteen years is what it took the band to create this monster of an album. With the sole purpose of heaviness, Brujeria have achieved this album and will be absolutely proud of it. Be prepared for pure chaos when the band starts touring this fall. Lot of necks are about to get hurt (review written by Sanjit Lal ).
