DESGRACIADOS: Humanidad en la Obscuridad: EP

Loud and out-of-control hardcore punk from these miserable wretches. Fast and bordering on blowing apart is how they deliver this sonic maelstrom. They only slow it down for just a moment on the intro to the song “Enemigos Callejeros,” and that song builds in intensity from there. Other than that, these songs are delivered with an intense and desperate urgency. Check out the song “Desgraciados,” that aims to batter the listener senseless. The drumming at the beginning of the song recalls 1980s peace punk, but the intent here is more sonically destructive and ratchets the energy up into the red levels. “Caos” is exactly what the name details: blazing insanity that doesn’t stop to the very end. I bet this record will be on a lot of “best of” lists at the end of the year.
