Dies Irae

Mexico has had a pretty healthy, if not well-known, metal scene for a number of years, but Dies Irae is the first Mexican band to be featured on these pages (Brujeria doesn't count!). Formed back in 1991, they released two similarly-styled albums, the latter of which was recorded in Gothenberg, Sweden, by the well-respected producer Fredrik Nordstrom. And Gothenberg is the key phrase here, as Dies Irae, despite hailing from another continent altogether, has a classic Swedish melodic death metal style in the In Flames/ Dark Tranquillity mold. There's some fine musicianship here (bassist Carlos Orozco excels), and the execution is right on the mark -- those into the melodeth field should like these guys.

Note: no relation to the Polish band Dies Irae.
