Dia De Los Muertos is a Los Angeles, CA based metal band, that was born from the ashes of legendary Colombian death metal band, Agony. Dia De Los Muertos‘s music is fueled by death metal & grindcore influences, and conceptually orbits around the Latino culture in the US, and the sense of brotherhood that goes beyond national roots or citizenship borders.
Last month, Dia De Los Muertos released their new EP, No Money No Fiesta. A collection of five brand new songs filled with blast beats and grindcore riffs, that are enhanced by the macabre banshee’s voice of singer Rosa Arias. From this EP, songs like La Cantina Del Infierno, No Money No Fiesta, and Adios M.F are the stronghold of the new music of Dia De Los Muertos. The EP also includes a cover of the song Crush, Kill, Destroy originally of Brazilian band Sarcofago, but the Dia De Los Muertos‘s version offers a bilingual (Portuguese/English) duet featuring, Brazilian singer Marcus D’Angelo (Claustrofobia) and American singer Boris Bonillo (LetumAscensus).
Dia De Los Muertos was planning on making their first 2014 appearance at the Hell & Heaven Festival in Mexico last month, but unfortunately the festival was cancelled at the last-minute due to unclear reasons.
