Heavy Metal Mariachi Band METALACHI Performs DIO, SLAYER, OZZY OSBOURNE Classics (Video)

February 18, 2015

Fan-filmed video footage of METALACHI, which is billed as the world's first and only mariachi heavy metal band, performing DIO, OZZY OSBOURNE, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, QUIET RIOT and SLAYER classics on February 7 in Ventura, California can be seen below.

METALACHI is described as "a five-piece ensemble of classically trained mariachi musician brothers, but taking their cues from KISS, GWAR and ROB ZOMBIE. Their show includes outrageous costumes, personas and on-stage antics." The band features Vega De La Rockha on vocals, Maximilian "Dirty" Sanchez on violin, Poncho Rockafeller on guitarron, Ramon Holiday on guitar, El Cucuy on trumpet and is managed by mysterious impresario Warren Moscow.

Using traditional mariachi instruments, METALACHI plays such songs as JUDAS PRIEST's "Breaking The Law", OZZY OSBOURNE's "Crazy Train", GUNS N' ROSES' "Sweet Child O' Mine" and a METALLICA medley.

METALACHI is a music/comedy stage show that seamlessly blends the worlds of SPINAL TAP and Cheech & Chong into an all-out stage spectacle for the eyes and ears. METALACHI has been performing to sell-out crowds throughout the U.S. for several years and have already built a devoted and diverse fan base comprised of metalheads, hipsters, fashionplates, lowriders, artwalkers, loft-dwellers, and street urchins alike.

METALACHI's first album, appropriately titled "Uno", features Mexican mariachi renditions of hard rock classics like LED ZEPPELIN's "Immigrant Song" and BON JOVI's "Livin' On A Prayer".
