NUESTRA SANGRE: Violenta Nominus: CD

The last time I was in Tecate, Mexico, I went into a liquor store and there were all kinds of punk rock posters taped up on the wall. I communicated (very poorly) with the kid behind the counter and he handed me this CD. It’s full-on hardcore, goat-ripping Mexican metalcore. A couple months ago I heard that Jesus Isordia, a guitar player for Nuestra Sangre, was shot and killed in Tijuana in the violence that’s swallowed up the borderlands. Fucking sad.
