CENDRA
CENDRA
666 Bastards
(Xtreem Music)
33:00min

This three-piece from the region of Catalonia in Spain somehow raises certain expectations with their first release for Xtreem Music. Honestly, the title “666 Bastards” really says: MOTÖRHEAD on Black Metal, played or better spat out by three (of course!) maniacs! And you get that, somehow... Well, maybe not exactly MOTÖRHEAD, except for that cultivated “Fuck Off!” gesture of the early days of Lemmy. It's much more a distinct Punk attitude that's very defining for the sound of CENDRA. And if I say Punk, I mean P.U.N.K.! Snotty, belligerent and always a middle finger in the air! Maybe the title of the opener 'Satànic D-Beat' characterizes CENDRA best, but the following 'Argh!!!' does the same. And I honestly think the band's mantra song is 'Sang, Suor I Alcohol' (Spanish for 'Blood, Sweat And Alcohol'), since it was also the name of CENDRA's first album. So, it's clear that we can neither expect pieces of skill nor a little bit of mercy, but some fine music to dance pogo to with the fist raised high in the air. Or the middle finger. Or the devil horns... When I listen to “666 Bastards”, I always have to think of INEPSY, since their forward driving punked up and blackened Street Metal has a very similar feeling. Yes, this album won't appeal to the sophisticate, but it's not made for those anyway. “666 Bastards” is made for Metalheads like me, who love it raw and simple and dig fine Punk as well.
