Beatriz Carnicero & Chulo - 2013 Split

Beatriz Carnicero is a hardcore punk band from Uraguay. The split with Chulo is their fourth release. Beatriz Carnicero play a speedy brand of hardcore influenced by power violence. The longest of these songs is barely over a minute long and that's only because of a long audio clip. They get in, smash you over the head with the riff, rip your guts apart with the tortured vocals and then move quickly on to the next musical ambush

Chulo is a three piece grindcore/powerviolence band from Bogota, Colombia. Their split with Beatriz Carnicero is their eleventh release. Chulo play a supremely heavy brand of power violence that is as interested in chugging along a riff as they are exploding like a pipe bomb showering you in shrapnel. They cite bands like Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Man is the Bastard, Infest, Napalm Death. The singer has a completely incomprehensible screech whether guttural or high pitched and the saw blade guitars are out of control.
