As the legend goes, Brujeria is an extreme underground band, consisting of various Mexican drug lords and/or murderers, who are so notorious that they must keep their identities unknown as they release albums. A great story, but of course it's not the truth. In actuality Brujeria is a project once led by Dino Cazares of Fear Factory, and has featured name players from bands such as Napalm Death, Faith No More, Arch Enemy, and many more (the pedigree of the current drummers, the Erlandsson brothers, alone reads like a who's-who of extreme metal). The band usually employs multiple bass players in the mix, leading one to expect a lower-end sound, and that's exactly what Brujeria is all about -- dirty, down-tuned, grungy death metal, with lyrics sung entirely in Spanish (and not very friendly lyrics at that, as anyone with just passing familiarity with Spanish curse words can attest). Quite cool, actually. They aren't without a sense of humor either -- who else could record a death metal version of the Macarena and call it "Marijuana"? They've kept a lower-than-usual profile over the last decade or so, but they've released the odd single in recent years, and 2016 sees the band's first full-length album in sixteen years.
