Fronteras (Orange/Black Vinyl)
Formed in Orange County in 2003, the fertile soil of extremity that also brought us Social Distortion and Avenged Sevenfold, 8 Kalacas are the harbingers of a new era. After establishing their unique brand of metallic hardcore, ska and traditional Mexican elements in California and the rest of the Divided States, the massive seven-piece brotherhood is ready to take on the rest of the world.
Fronteras, their third full-length and first for brand-new label Atomic Fire Records, is like a curveball for the rest of the international metal / hardcore scene: an album so fierce and unique you simply can't resist succumbing to the thundering grooves, malicious riffs and infectious trumpet / trombone madness those guys are vigorously unleashing like there's no tomorrow. Taking their Latin roots and their Californian upbringing and ingeniously warping the two into this behemoth of an album, 8 Kalacas truly bring something new and exciting to the table.
Release date: 29th April, 2022
