Mexican Metal

Post#1 » Fri Jan 15, 2016 5:27 pm

I don't know a whole lot about it, but I found an interesting site:
http://www.angelfire.com/rock3/metalmexicano/rock.html

In particular I was looking for stuff by Zebra (or maybe Zebra 3 is their name). Apparently they also have a live tape besides what's mentioned on that site, perhaps another album, cover in this video:

Seems they're not metal enough for the Metal Archives or no one submitted them.

Abaddon is also an awesome band.

There is no Mexican band I'd rave about but a few of them sound interesting. Recently I discovered demos of Bestia Metalica:

I'd call it simplistic speed metal, somewhat punky at times. Probably not to everyone's taste.

By the contrary - i like a lot some mexican bands.

Megaton is just 1 of them and i would kill to listen a rip of the 1987 Demo :

Off the top of my head Leprosy - "Wicked Reich" comes to mind.

I'm personally not a big fan of Spanish vocals so although the scene back then did have a few bands it's not a big draw for me.

Luzbel is the best '80s band I've heard so far.
Unfunny signature.

Big fan of this (but the studio version is far superior) :

Song is great, album is ok. Follow up to this album is terrible, haven't bothered to check beyond that.

Cristal y Acero [1984]



Heavy rock, but very solid album. Best song on the album IMO

Crazy Lazy

Zombie Dance

I'm no expert but I can definitly recommend the Khafra's first album (S/T or disco negro).And if you are into more extreme Metal i recommend Virgin Witch, Sacrilegio (Power/heavy) , Bestial Invasion (from the 80ies) and Pactum (early 90ies).

And yeah, Luzbel rules the world anyway.

the first demo of Megaton has been released on CD:

http://www.metal-archives.com/albums/Me ... B3n/508107


I have seen also Gehenna early recordings have been released on CD (including compilation songs, unreleased songs and alternative version: of course Metal-Archives lists it as a full lenght album because no one takes care of the submissions):

http://www.metal-archives.com/albums/Ge ... rno/468913

Other nice bands are Vixit and Apocalipsis

Cool tips,thanx! Both are amongst my favorites (along with early Luzbel, of course).
