PRECARIA
PRECARIA
Precaria Ex Humanitas
(Desavenencia)
52:18min

This is the debut album of PRECARIA, a Black Metal band from Mexico. I heard the album a number of times trying to make up my mind about it, and ok, these are my impressions: the production is rather bad, with very thin guitars lacking punch, played in the later Black Metal way, with fast unmuted string picking reminding us of our seminal Norwegian friends, yet with far longer songs and far more intricate and varied structures. Said songs are accompanied by very fast drums, sometimes totally chaotic (and, I suspect, with some production-stage meddling). An electronic drumkit must have been used, judging from the digital sound. Once in a while you get a few slower moments to catch your breath. But usually the songs are a machine-gun massacre. And the shortest is over seven minutes long. It all often sounds like a mess, and yet, there is something to this. I enjoy the crazed chaos, the general ambiance and the composition that is so totally frantic it keeps your attention. I like the extreme vocals sung in Spanish and to my surprise and good impression the lyrics are actually quite good, even literary, focusing on themes such as the despair of human existence, social corruption and the folly of religion. I am not any expert on recent Black Metal, so the only comparison that I can offer musicwise is SARCÓFAGO's final breath, the "Crust" EP. It's pretty much that crazy. At times I was listening to a song (say, a bit into 'Evangeliza Con Veneno Nihilista') and thinking to myself, "what the fuck are they doing!" and not being able to really decide whether it was good or bad. But they're doing their thing, and personality is good. If you think you will like it, give it a go. It certainly caught my attention and as far as musical aggression goes, you can't be much more extreme than this.
