When Brujeria released the EP "Viva Presidente Trump!" I was really happy, because the band did not release an album or EP unpublished since "Brujerizmo" (2000). "Viva Presidente Trump!" was released and I enjoyed it and this created a great expectation regarding "Pocho Aztlan", the album of 2016. Well, "Pocho Aztlan" is a good album and I really like what I heard, but it does not compare to the three first classic albums of Brujeria. "Pocho Aztlan" has its good moments as in the tracks "No Aceptan Imitaciones", "Profecía Del Anticristo", "Ángel De La Frontera", "Plata O Plomo" (the best song), "Satongo" (chupa-cabras!), "Culpan La Mujer" e "Códigos". The last track of this album is "California Über Aztlan" (Dead Kennedys cover) that already had been released like single in 2010, nevertheless it is sung in Spanish (Juan Brujo rewrote the lyrics). It is worth remembering that this album is the first without the presence of Dino "Asesino" Cazares. Anyway, "Pocho Aztlan" is a good album, but I expected a lot more from this new record. Brujeria 2016: Fantasma (bass and vocals), Hongo (guitars), Pinche Peach (samples and vocals), Juan Brujo (vocals), Pititis (guitars and vocals), El Cynico (bass and backing vocals), El Podrido (drums) and Hongo Jr. (drums).

Split heavyweight! Primitive Man plays two tracks tracks called "Cold Resolve" and "Servant", both are like nightmares, where agony and torment are present. Sea Bastard plays a track called "The Hermit", which tells of the life and pilgrimage of a hermit and his faith. Although this record has three tracks, this split is very long (about 36:54). So cool!

Great idea from Brujeria by putting the title of this EP as "Viva Presidente Trump!". Obviously this is a sarcasm with the most stupid public figure in the world right now. This EP contains two tracks "Viva Presidente Trump!", an excellent noise that is a kind of "Pito Wilson" part 2, of which the lyrics relate the truths and ideas of Donald Trump (the wall, power, prejudice, racial hatred and lover of the money) and "Pared de Muerte", track where the lyrics relate the metal world, the wall of death and all the fun and excitement that surrounds a metal show. This EP is very good and fuck you puto! Viva!

The mechanized sound of darkness! This is a good definition for T.O.M.B. (Total Occultic Mechanical Blasphemy) allied to fear, terror and other negative and black things. "Fury Nocturnus" is a very macabre album, where the tracks are like guides to obscure and apocalyptic thoughts. Some demons have also put their evil forces into this sinister record as Hellhammer (Mayhem), John Litchko (Goreaphobia/Necrotion), Grant Richardson (GNAWED) and Erik Danielsson (Watain - cover art). In short, a black work with negative vibrations.

Reiketsu is really an interesting band. I remember watching the band's show in 2013 at Exhale The Sound (Belo Horizonte) and it was certainly one of the coolest performances. The atmosphere of the songs along with the venue and the people involved has created a unique tune... good memories. In 2016 Reiketsu released "Ninho de Harpia", an album that transported the band to another dimension. I say this because "Ninho de Harpia" is an album that sounds more post-metal than neocrust or crust (obviously, influences still remain) and this in my view made the band more original and with its own identity. The first two tracks I heard from this record were "Homem-Nada" and "O Inferno em Suas Narinas", these songs are the ones that stand out most in this album (good lyrics too). With regard to the lyrics that are well elaborated, it is worth mentioning that all the songs are sung in Portuguese (plus another merit). To conclude: "Ninho de Harpia" is another highlight of 2016 and deserves to be checked in case you have not heard yet. Long live to Reiketsu!

Gatecreeper is a relatively new band and the guys are from Arizona and when you talk about this North American state, I think of Sepultura, since the Brazilians have lived in Phoenix for many years (in fact, Max Cavalera still lives in Phoenix). However, Gatecreeper's musicality is different from what Sepultura has done in the past. Gatecreeper is a death metal band well influenced by the Swedish scene, in other words, Dismember is certainly their biggest influence. Of course, you will also notice the influence of American death metal on their music (in this case Obituary is the reference). "Sonoran Depravation" was released in 2016 and is a very good album, that is, full of aggression, fury and energy. Highlight for the tracks "Craving Flesh", "Desperation", "Rotting as One" and "Lost Forever". In short, Gatecreeper is one of the new death metal bands that are on stage to destroy everything and "Sonorah Depravation" is proof of this as it is one of the best albums released in 2016. Great!

Denito (Anti-God Squad) introduced me to this band a while ago and I liked it right away. Since then I have heard quite often the noise made by this Catalans and admiring more and more. "Culto Abismal" is an absolutely heavy and powerful album, because what you hear here is the cult and the union between two abysses: death metal & crustcore. Of the eight tracks that make up this excellent album I highlight "Intruso", "Culto Abismal", "La Caza", "La Pitjor de les Plagues" and "Pesanta" (this track sounds like Defy - ex band of Denito). Cruz is a great band and "Culto Abismal" is one of the best albums released in 2016. Badass!

Voivod is a band that is difficult to define a musical style, as they may sound like experimental metal or even progressive metal, but the fact is that Voivod is a band with unique musicality with a futuristic atmosphere (cyberpunk). "Post Society" was released in 2016 and the first track I heard was "Post Society" and for me it is the best track of that record (the video clip is very good). The other tracks are also pretty cool, which includes Hawkwind's classic song "Silver Machine". Cool!

Sic semper tyrannis is a phrase in Latin which means "thus always to tyrants". So, you can imagine the posture of this Chilean band (the voice against the abuse of power). Sic Semper Tyrannis is a new band and this self titled record consists of nine tracks sung in Spanish, where the band plays hardcore and crust punk. The very aggressive cover art called 'Judith beheading Holofernes' is a work of the Italian artist Artemisia Gentileschi, in which she reports on male violence (patriarchy). So cool!
