Cryptobiosis (Wild Rags)

By: Jeb Branin

I can't say I've heard a lot of Bolivian music, certainly not a lot of death metal, so this CD intrigued me before I even put it on. The intrigue didn't end after I put it on either. If you are into bloody raw death grind this is for you. The band is immensely brutal and harsh and their delivery is so primitive and grating that listening to it is like sandpapering your brain. The production is very basic yet allows the music to express itself, nothing is watered down but nothing is lost in the mix. The sick vocals are a combination of deep growls and screeches with a few yelps and gargles thrown in for good measure. The lyrics have a very pointed political slant and deal with everything from social injustice in South America to environmental destruction. Recorded a couple of years ago, I'm not sure if this is a re-release or posthumous release or if it just took a long time to smuggle these goods into the country.
