Esto Es Brujeria

From their brutal beginnings, BRUJERIA, Spanish for "witchcraft", has commandeered a notorious reputation. The maniacal death-grind unit's over-the-top album artwork has depicted the madness of cartel violence in the least subtle manner imaginable. While the imagery overtly suggests an exclusive Mex...

Like a lot of bands, VISCERA had their plans roundly screwed when the pandemic took hold. The UK crew's debut album "Obsidian" was a thrilling bolt from the tech-deathcore blue and deserved to propel them to the forefront of an increasingly potent scene. The unwanted lull that ensued for the next tw...
