Coucou, les chaton.ne.s! We're back with another short yet wholesome entry (Ay qué rico, papi!) featuring this interesting mexican neocrust outfit. So, this band is from Rosarito and have self-released this amazing full-length album last year. It also had a tape edition released through Ediciones Teratológicas in Chile. I don't know if they're still looking for other record labels to release more physical copies because, as far as I know, this record will be released on CD format through two unknown record labels. Also, if I'd have knew them before, definitely they would be in our best picks of 2016 entry.
Reagrding the sound, this band draws different influences from crust punk, post-rock and post-black metal. You can imagine a mix of Hongo, Ictus, Explosions In The Sky, Fall Of Efrafa, Downfall Of Gaia, Iskra and Oathbreaker. I found really interesting their musical style because their instrumentation and execution is brilliant, displaying an outstanding and bittersweet mix of fast-paced music with slow and introspective interludes. Even they have clean and sharp vocals made by a womyn, which it gives a more profound atmosphere. Their lyrics are in spanish and charged with the dark, gloomy and pessimistic aura that characterizes both neocrust and blackened crust. And, finally, unlike other mexican neocrust outfits, Morir Soñando put more emphasis on post-rock, which is something pretty uncommon yet cool.
Lastly, click on the image for getting redirected to their official bandcamp account, where you can hear and download (paying the right price you consider or for free) this amazing record. Support them, it's worth it. I hope in the near future getting more material from this band. Highly recommended. Enjoy and until next time. Kisses and hugs!
