How do you like the new header? I thought it was about time I gave these posts a little visual impact.
As to the claim I'm making - so far as I know, nobody else is doing this so what the hell.
One of the more delightful things about this whole project is the way I've found myself discovering bands from all sorts of places around the world. I was vaguely aware that they had to have some sort of Heavy Metal scene but was shockingly ignorant as to how big, dedicated and enthusiastic they might be.
Mexico is a great example. Up until fairly recently, I'd never heard a Mexican metal band in my entire life.
Now I know better.
Anyway, here's some bands that deserve to be better known outside Latin America. Enjoy.
Ancesthor - Thrash Metal Iron Smash (2011)
(I don't know why but I'm getting a bit of a Death Angel vibe from these guys.)
Honour to: Ancesthor Official
Merciless Disaster - Speed Metal Revenge (Demo 2013)
(So raw that it's bleeding - but not without charm.)
Honour to: Merciless Disaster band
Khafra - El Metal Ilego Para Quedarse (2001)
(Straight-ahead fists clenched Trad Metal. Unusual solo)
Honour to: leospeed thrash
Steel Sentinel - Heavy Metal Night (2013)
(Has a mid 80s Eurometal/NWOBHM touch to it.)
Honour to: malignus sentinel
Survival - Speed Metal Freaks (2011)
( Starts with a loud "Aaaaaaaarrrgggghhhh!" I approve.
And they aren't kidding about the speed either.
I am not responsible for any injuries you may sustain headbanging to this. )
Honour to: Possessed By Metal
Evil Blood - Thrash Metal Assault (2012)
(Thrash with Black Metal-ish vocals)
