Coucou, les chaton.ne.s! We're back once again with a special request made by Gato Encerrado Records, a small independent record label from Burgos, Spain. They sent me an e-mail and gladly asked me to review two bands from their catalog: Restos Sin Gloria and Nightshot. Click on the image of the cute kitten for getting redirected to their official bandcamp account. There's good metalcore, screamo and crust punk material (some of them already featured here in our blog). On the other hand, it's been a while since I recieve these kind of requests. Remember that you can always do it through my personal mail or sending a private message to the facebook page. You can find the information in the Disclaimer section of the blog. Finally, this will be a short yet wholesome entry (Ay, qué ricoooo. Papuuu) Ehem...Ok. With all that written, let's begin.
Restos Sin Gloria
If I'm not mistaken, this is the first release of this interesting spanish outfit. Their music is a good mix of modern metalcore and posthardcore. I also detect some crust and screamo elements reminiscent to gallician's neocrust wave, deeply explored in our infamous yet successful unofficial guide to both neocrust and blackened crust. And, I found quite interesting their musical execution and instrumentation with both fast-paced and slow interludes. Finally, I highly recommend it even though in some parts may sound too "modern". Enjoy!.
Finally, we conclude this entry with another interesting spanish outfit. Just like the previous band, Nightshot has modern hardcore punk elements in their repertory. So, you'll find here fresh and well-executed music with both slow-paced chugga-chugga metallic breakdowns and "moshable" parts. Think of different american and european bands featured here in different compilations such as America's Hardcore and Times Are Changing for getting an idea of what material this band is made of. Pretty good stuff, though. Enjoy and until next time. Kisses and hugs!
