Hacavitz – Metzli Obscura (2010)


Hacavitz is a Mexican two man apocalyptic outfit that creates very raw and brutal Black/Death Metal. Unlike many bands of this genre, we don’t hate them. The band is pretty good at creating rudimentary and harsh music that will make your spine chill. Using English, Spanish, and Aztec (or something like that) the band will haunt your dreams since the start of “Metzli Obscura”.

We usually bitch and moan about the shitty quality that similar releases have, but we cannot complain about this with Hacavitz. The band’s sound is very dense and dirty, but it works wonders in creating a raw and thick atmosphere. With the chaotic feeling that “Metzli Obscura” creates, we have found the perfect soundtrack for a journey through hell.

The band’s music is not super diverse or anything, but if you like the first track, then your will be ecstatic about the whole album. Hacavitz does not need any fancy keyboards or any other instruments to create an eerie atmosphere that creates a superb occult feeling. We can help but wonder how people would react to listening to this album while on the woods in a cold night.

With furious drumming, whirling riffs and screams of agony, “Metzli Obscura” is a very solid and brutal album that is by far one of the best of 2010 to come out on Moribund Records. So get off your ass, get this release, and start enjoying the real occult aspect of the Aztec culture.
