Retratos e historias: Amor y Rabia / Incendiariat split tape

We don't believe in the future but we get haunted by the past...that's why you'll always be present, everyday, in life. Never goodbye, only see you soon... Amor Y Rabia, 2014.'re back, my beautiful puppies! Today, I received an e-mail from Andrés Felipe Lesmes, one of Amor y Rabia's vocalists, sending me their beautiful split with colombian screamo band Incendiariat which will be final-fucking-ly released as a tape in the next few weeks!. Qué chimba! (Gracias por la noticia, parcero!). The songs featured in this split were originally recorded back in 2014 and, since then, are available as free download on their respective official bandcamp accounts. We mentioned its existence when we reviewed Amor y Rabia's split with Folie à Trois, but it's time to make the review that it really deserves... 

So, each band present 2 songs. First, Amor Y Rabia bring us Nos vemos pronto y Košute (already featured in Sonidos Muertos #1 compilation, which is available in this blog) with the band's characteristic and particular sound of blending hardcore punk, crust punk, emo and d-beat. I have to say that they made a fantastic work using fast music with slow-paced and introspective interludes. Regarding the lyrics, the first song is a celebration for the true friendship that will last forever, no matter what happens and the last one is way more complex announcing the coming of dark times in the near future. As a curious fact, Košute shares the same name as a Croatian village, and there's a strange monument to the yugoslavian fallen soldiers in World War II. Is there a connection between this song and the forementioned monument? I don't know...

Last but not least, Incendiariat have two outstanding songs: Yo anhelo que las cenizas de este mundo sean nuestra pista de baile y Lianas. Their sound has strong screamo, post-hardcore and post-rock influences. We can mention bands like June Paik, Louise Cyphre, Envy, Heaven in her arms, and City of Caterpillar as a reference. Like Amor y Rabia, Incendiariat makes a superb mix of fast music with slow-paced interludes. Regarding the lyrics, the first song is a strong individual statement of (de)constructing the world and the last one is like an incendiary love confession. Really neat. They also have a tape named Parto Y Desastre, with a more complex and mature sound. I hope to get it and share it with you pretty soon.

Finally, I recommend you this amazing piece of art. Click on the image and you'll be redirected to the download link. The file is the same that Mr. Lesmes sent to me and features the artwork, design, layouts and lyrics in spanish that will be printed for the tape. Muertx and Colmillo were behind the amazing art featured in this split. Don't forget to visit the respective official bandcamp accounts ( and to check out their other stuff. And if you can, pay the right price to support them. I hope to receive pretty soon more news from these amazing chicxs. Enjoy and see you until the next time. Hugs and kisses!
