On a hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico circa 1982, Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated shanty and into Rock N Roll history. What began as an innocent night of snorting horse tranquilzers in a hotel room with seven members of the village jai alai team went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live. Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard children where born. Unable to care for her hungry offspring and concerned that motherhood would seriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaoke league, Consuela hastily packed the babies into the saddlebags of a burro and sent her children off to America in search of a better life. Against all odds, 14 years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burro knelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the Rio Grande just ouside of Juarez Mexico –mere yards from the U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy the brothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leather restraints and scampered the vast reach of the river, collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil. As if by destiny, lodged in the sand beneath their tanned faces was a record sleeve upon which were the words “PARANOID” and “BLACK SABBATH”. For many years to follow, this definitive black metal album served not only as a teacher and a mentor..but also as a friend. From these bleak and humble begins grew the seed that would eventually be the band we know today. Often referred to as the greatest heavy metal band to ever live..always referred to as…METALACHI.
Combining the potent mix of darkly psychedelic grooves, otherworldly rock n’ roll power, and incredible onstage unpredictability, San Diego’s Madly simply need to be seen to be believed. Taking their name from a popular Doors tune, the quartet (comprised of guitarist David Robles, vocalist Lucina González, drummer Tino González, and bassist Cindy Cate) joined up in January 2014 from different corners of the San Diego music scene and soon thereafter bestowed a musical blow to unsuspecting audiences used to the surfpop
and indie folk norm.
The band surges through wild, smoldering jams with the dynamic of a long dormant volcano: Growling bass lines and thunderous drums provide the perfect foundation for Robles’ cacophonous guitar wizardry and Lucina’s woman possessed onstage prowess. And while audiences thus far have only been able to stand bewildered after the band’s performances – not knowing exactly what just hit them – 2016 is the year that Madly finally deliver their debut full length album; an eight song testament that somehow captures the sonic insanity, stellar musicianship and unbridled magic of their live shows.With an already impressive slew of shows under their belt (performing with Wild Child, Metalachi, Transfer, and The Silent Comedy, among others), the band is (scarily enough) just now coming into their own. In other words, listen up.
