Less than two years after their last album, legendary Mexican Electro duo Hocico is once again filling the air withtheir unabashedly sound and strikes hard withtheir full range of aggression on the band’s brand newalbum. Latently menacing and rather insidiously rough as in “Broken Empires” or wrapped in a pulsating Dark’n’Bass tune as in the recently released single“Backstabbers” – Hocico doesn’t play shy on any of the 13 tracks of theirnew long-player.
This also counts for the previously released bonus track “Weapons of Resistance “with the guest vocals from ten56. Frontman Aaron Matts! After previous collaborations fromHocicowithLord Of The Lost and Ost+Front, this is another straight banger, that will not only make the Aggrotech heart beat faster. In 2022, heavy-hitter Hocico is still going strong in pushing boundaries and breaking old conventions – or simply said: “hyper hyper”!
