La Muerte
La Muerte
February 2015
Released: 2014, Skyfire Interactive
Rating: 3.0/5
Reviewer: Waspman

La Muerte out of Essex, U.K. is made up of a trio of music & horror fans that go together and figured they’d put out a record based on their mutual interests. Sounds typical, but the music contained on the band’s self-titled three-track EP is heavy, fuzzy, punk-inflected, and most importantly, LOUD.

The three songs whip past in less than ten minutes, but it’s a pretty intense time nonetheless. The songs are all catchy in a lovable, scruffy way, and are not to be taken too seriously (thus a song called “Snacks & Wax”). As you listen, you can picture the guys in their bedroom or garage just bashing their instruments for fun and having these songs fall out by accident. As a listening experience though, the EP is enjoyable if you’re into a heavy garage rock vibe that is just heavy enough to appeal to metal fans. And don’t worry too much about that punk reference I made earlier, this is much more Black Flag & Sex Pistols than say, Green Day.

This is a really short review, but hey, I’ve only got about seven minutes of music to work with here. Suffice it to say that, while not all metal fans will be into this, fans of the crustier side of rock will likely find LA MUERTE to their liking.
