Tunjum – Deidades del Inframundo Review

Tunjum – Deidades del Inframundo Review

“My interest piqued when I read that Tunjum, a Peruvian band releasing their first full length LP, plays “ancestral metal from the land of the Incas!” I checked out their Metal Archives page, and found that they write about “ancient Muchik culture.” I took to Wikipedia to investigate “ancient Muchik culture,” and discovered that researchers believe that human sacrifices and ritual cannibalism were common religious practices of the Moche, which seemed like a pretty ample source of inspiration. I admit, I didn’t know anything about the band, but I reasoned like this: good source material? Check. Good artwork? Well, I like it. Illegible logo? Very much. So, I gave it a chance.” Ancient cultures deserve double reviews.

Goat Semen – Ego Svm Satana Review

“What can I say, sometimes you just have to grab promo because it’s obnoxious and crude and sounds like a wacky way to ride out the week. Native to Peru, an area that offers as varied a range of metal as the biodiversity of the country itself, Goat Semen are delivering their debut full-length release.” What can we say, Madam X loves animals.
