Mocho Diablo – Green


Mocho Diablo – Green
Self released – 2012
Rock, Stoner, Grunge
Rated: ****


Not many rock groups implore the use of a theremin; but I for one have always dug that weird magical little thing. Ever since I saw absolute genius Cato ‘Salsa’ Thomassen use it. I was therefor pleasantly surprised when I heard the Brazilian foursome Mocho Diablo use it on their debut EP called Green. Made up out of three guys from Flaming Moe and a new bassplayer they recorded five straight up rock songs that rub against stoner and borrow some grungy greatness from the big names. Soulful gritty rock with a tasty sharp edge, fascinating structures and a truckload of savory riffs. Add to this the balanced and succulent drums and a lot of room for a sickly steady bass, dueling with the guitar and delivering little funky ditties. You know you’ve got some absolute gold on yer hands! Last but not least we have a vocalist that borders on greatness as well. Mocho Diablo, simply irresistible, absolutely wonderful and green no more!

    But still, great things to come! This is just our 1st of 4 EPs. Different collors, different moods.
