Martigny (24/Nov) | Artist Biography
Fuelled by vitriol, compared to such legendary gutter-dwelling sleaze-merchants as The Birthday Party, Foetus, The Stooges and even Salvador Dali, La Muerte has become a standard reference when it comes to Belgium‘s underground rock scene.
Conjuring extreme, horrifying images of death, addiction, the road and urban violence glued to putrid rock ‘n’ roll and manic-depressive bluesrock, La Muerte released a string of cult-albums and EP’s throughout the 80s and early 90s, which heavily resonated with those abandoned by love or devoid of hope. Even the devil’s rejects found refuge in La Muerte‘s growling, howling, stop / start frenzy, and feedback shivers of guitar burning through the dark cracks of life.
In the wake of the band’s schizophrenic, nephritic crusade in a malevolent country, a place of delirium and hate of odious persecution, La Muerte‘s massacre thrashed Europe and the UK, resulting in a John Peel Session at the BBC, full pages of interviews in Melody Maker, and, infamously, bomb threats in Paris by extremists French Catholics for the track ‘Ecoute cette Prière’, before eventually disbanding in 1994.Wide ThumbClearartFanartBanner User Comments
