new band members of Totalove, Dissosiego, Zotz
Our take: Demo cassette from this band from Mexico City. Celda’s big, crashing chords (particularly when they pair them with fast 1-2 beats) remind me of ripping 90s hardcore like Deathreat or Talk Is Poison, though they infuse that sound with the modern pogo-hardcore of bands like Gag or Blazing Eye. It’s a raw, scrappy explosion of anger, though they still make time for a great melodic guitar lead on “Dr. Pisquiatra.” Perhaps this isn’t an essential grip for a dabbler in hardcore, but if you’re interested in the contemporary Mexican hardcore punk scene, this is well worth hearing.
