Description

Metalachi claims to be "The World’s First and Only Heavy Metal Mariachi Band." The culture clash is irresistible, undeniably clever and the ultimate example of the fabled American melting pot. The band has a fantastical origin story: allegedly they are the bastard offspring from a horse-tranquilizer-fueled night of passion between Consuela Espinoza and seven members of the local Jai Alai team. They command the stage with a suave bravado. Their renditions of metal classics are worshipful, but infused with hooting ad-libs. They have bouncy dueling guitarists, a kicking horn section, and a frontman that translates the occult language of metal into the pitch-perfect yelps and screeches of mariachi. And when it comes to face-melting solos, Metalachi forgo guitar heroics; they opt instead for the blistering electric violin work of "Dirty Sanchez." (JF)
