Voor – Voor (2019)

Voor
Release date: July 13th, 2019
Label: Independent

Here is a band that has been around since 2012 from Rancagua and this their first full length, in the archives they are labeled thrash but to me there is more to their music as it has a whole technic of its own.

With a cool intro (Into Chaos) the band breaks into The Killer which is a strong opener and the vocals really stand out as well as the music is very catchy with a great drive to it and some tempo changes that keep you interested on what more is to come and the next track Reached by Your Death is a good example as this one is pounding heavy from the start and I will say the production on here is superb as you can hear all the instruments clearly and is one of my favorites on here till this point.

As we go on Rage from the South is a bit different as the tempo is more on the heavy metal side but once again the vocals really stand out but it has some catchy hooks to it that never made it dull as it goes well with the flow and will say there are some great leads through out this whole album.The Deserving of Death on here the tempo gets a bit faster and has a killer punch to it with the backing vocals “You Deserve to Die!” with an all out assault this is one of best tracks on here as it simply shreds and goes into Stoned Forever which is fast and furious from the get go but I will say I thought there would of been more to the lyrical content but all that is said is the title throughout the song but it really doesn’t matter cause the music will crush the weak.

The Deadliest Weapon has a vibe of its own and the message behind the lyrics is what made this standout for me and the playing as well as you hear the bass going off, this got better with each time I played it, so we go onto Unquiet Peace which I really had to give a few listens to before I really got it as there are many tempo changes in here that you would have to make up your own mind to it, so were getting near the end here and Your Fucking Church needs no introduction as the title speaks for itself as far as the music its killer with a bass solo thrown in and you can hear it cracking throughout and a killer lead to finish it off, and to the closer The Hatred Command a strong number with the chant THC! that adds to the flare of it as it’s heavy on all ends which is a good closer for the album.

In closing this a killer debut as it has a lot offer to anybody that likes they’re music heavy and I put a couple of tracks so you can hear them but will have to contact the band for a physical copy on their Facebook page.

Motosierra – Sobredosis de Heavy Metal (2018)

Motosierra
Release date: May 7th, 2018
Label: Iron Goat Commando (CD), Street Metal Blasphemy (Cassette)

When it comes to Heavy Metal, most bands usually go with the most well known influences, either German Heavy Metal, US Heavy Metal, N.W.O.B.H.M. or the classic Spanish Heavy Metal. Well, Motosierra decided to go the other way, most precisely, the dirty, fast and aggressive South American way.

Inspired by cult bands like V8 or Retrosatan, Motosierra’s take on Heavy Metal is pretty unique among other chilean bands. Not because of it’s originality (which is not a trait of their music), but for their ability to create one catchy riff after another, and turn those riffs into great songs.

And yes, this albums comes with a big “dejavu effect” and makes you think that you have heard this before, and yes, the production is a little bit thin sometimes, an yes, they could have a better vocalist, and yes, that introduction sounds like a blatant rip-off/homage to Diamond Head, but none of that matters once you get caught in this ridiculously catchy album. I mean, just listen to the marvelous instrumental start on Sobredosis de Heavy Metal (they could have skipped the intro with this), or the awesome opening riff on La Muerte, or the chorus on Gloria a Satán, or the solos from Acero Forjado, you name it, this album is full of awesome little moments that will make you bang your head, do air guitars or sing with your fists in the air. Also, good lyrics, simple and straight to the point.

I don’t know what else to say, this album is just too good to ignore it. If you like simple, fast and catchy Heavy Metal that reeks conviction and attitude, then you should really go get this.
