MUERTE: Self-titled: LP

Was totally expecting some Mexican Discharge worship, but it ain’t that kinda party here, kids. They do bash things up a bit here and there in ways that’ll please the most stiff-necked hardcore fan, but underneath the chanting vocals and Stürm und Drang is a heavy duty post-punk strain o’ misery that seeps through and adds a haunting, almost psychedelic quality to the din. Some interesting things seem to be afoot in the motherland these days, and this is one of ‘em.
