One astounding feat that MACHETAZO succeed to accomplish is being able to create 13 songs (plus two covers from well known classics such as SOB and ABSCESS) in the same CD, each with his own concrete, palpable, neatly cut identity, from grind to almost doom laden tracks, something that is rather hard to hear from any band this day, all the while maintaining a core of definite personality and a perfectly distinguishable identity. Something that maybe hasn't happened ever since IMPETIGO disappeared from the scene (although yeah, they seem to have been more active than ever in the past few years, in a way). And well, resemblances to IMPETIGO don't stop here, as an heavy use of intros from B movies and horror flicks and the flowing, pounding non-metal (that is not happy rides and useless solos) tempos just have the same catchiness and feel. MACHETAZO play that sort of old school Death metal which bands such as ROTTREVORE or REPULSION were able to play because they had in my opinion a strong background of good, genuine Hard Core and Punk which cleans off all those unnerving typically metal riffs leaving an unadulterated pulp of entrails and sawed splinters of bones which comes out really original and really memorably fucking sick. All through the CD you get a fucking varied portfolio of what this band can accomplish, with the main thread of Spanish language used all through the songs and all within the CD package as well: fast almost grinding accelerations, coarse Death Metal/Core with a vaguely crusty swing which makes the whole gore and gut flow free and extremely good for headbanging, convulse gargles and shrieking screams. One thing that might have helped this fucking great band reach such a sound might have been a constant change of approach to the music from grind noise to obscure Death Metal in 4 full years of seven inches and demotapes before a real deal. Must buy release. The cover artwork is grotesque, somewhat cartoonish yet gory, I don't know the painter but his style reminds me of the violent comic Oink... it depicts something like a caricature of an horrible walking, hulking jigsaw of flesh with an hatchet in hand among an hedgepodge of massacred bodies (remind me the song "Skullptures" by AUTOPSY, remember?).
