From Argentina, a referent country of the Spanish speaking rock and home of very important bands like Pappo's Blues, Vox Dei, Pescado Rabiosso, it comes for the the first time to Europe Banda De La Muerte one of the most burning acts of the local scene.
Each of the four members of the quartet comes from emblematic origins in the Buenos Aire's Stoner and Metal underground scene, as for example Jesus Martyr and Buffalo.
The band has been influenced in its origins by the most primitive Black Sabbath and the heavy riffs of Melvins cut by Black Flag's dissonant and provocative attitude.
BDLM's style synthesizes the Stoner and Doom's essence from which it comes from with the typical hardcore punk's nervousness and the Sludge's asphyxia, always with a very personal feature which coins the legendary elements of the local ancestors.
From its foundation in 2009, the band prides itself for being part of the South American Sludge movement having shared the Buenos Aires City Arena with their friends of Los Natas, Poseidotica and Dragonauta. It has also been beyond Argentinian boundaries touring internationally with Cultura Tres (Ven) and Hielo Negro (Chi) at the beginning of 2011.
The first band record was launched in 2009 by Zonda Records. The record has deserved review from the specialized press such as Rolling Stone and Jedbangers magazines. It has also been reviewed by specialized web sites and the TV media such as MTV and Much Music.
"Along with fellow Sludge merchants Cultura Tres, Banda de la Muerte have put a stranglehold on the South American Sludge metal scene. Playing each note with wreckless abandon, the band tears it up with it's Latin flair and pushes the boundaries of metal. Stoner rock grooves seep through the harrowing fist of doom as hardcore punk attitude uppercuts you in the jaw. Even though the music is aggressive, there is quite a bit of melody that shines through. Banda de la Muerte is one of those bands that will require multiple listens to fully realize their potential, maybe it is the language barrier thing, who knows? All that I know is that Banda de la Muerte is ready to embed their bootprint of Sludge into your skull. Are you ready?!"
