¡Pendejo! – Atacames



¡Pendejo! – Atacames
Chancho/Graviton – 2014
Rock, Stoner, Metal
Rated: ****

Well, ¡Pendejo! hails from Amsterdam but sounds like it crawled out of a Mexican gutter somewhere. Not only because of the rough gritty Spanish vocals which also have this humorous side and quickly gets your brain wired to their second album Atacames. Also because there is this Latin-American metal sound drifting on their monstrous current. This is Michelin grade Menudo; which implores muddy guitar riffs and fuzz, bass slapping insanity, zany trumpets and a vocalist you have no problem imagining as a big hairy Mexican wrestler jumping around like a madmen as its prime ingredients. Yes, this is bad ass stew filled with hot peppers and 53 species of a certain type of mushroom. And this might sound like it’s a highly dangerous brew; it is just as addictive and makes you want to walk the tightrope guzzling the good stuff. Wicked! All that’s left to do is kick a Mariachi in the nuts, steal his sombrero and tequila and ride of on your donkey laughing wildly as the sun sets over the disturbing scene you created…
