Puro Odio - Puro Odio

Labels: Sentient Ruin Laboratories

Formats: Tape/Digital

Release Date: 10 July 2020


1. No Es Un Juego

2. Pesadilla

It's a quick one tonight! A newish release from Sentient Ruin Laboratories, who worked with Spanish black metal/punk band Puro Odio to put out their 2019 self-titled EP on tape, as well as digitally. It was originally self-released by the band on 7" vinyl. This self-titled EP follows the band's 2018 demo and with new music planned, now is the time to check out them out if you haven't already. Get ready for an abrasive mix of black metal, Oi!, crust and punk.

This is going to require quick-fire typing skills! Opener ‘No Es Un Juego’ is as punk as you like, with fast-paced riffs, crazed percussive tempos and reverb-filled Spanish vox for good measure. The vocals are where the crust elements come in and with the added low-end bass rumble, it’s a hellish feedback-laden barrage to say the least.

Second song ‘Pesadilla’ comes across more mid-paced with a big nod towards death rock/post-punk thanks to the low riffs. About sixty-seconds in, Puro Odio launch back into life at full-throttle and level all with their nihilistic anarcho-punk. 

There are a lot of different approaches all rolled into one noisy whole here. Puro Odio kind of reminds of Sarcofago crossed with Amebix. The EP is over all too soon but it’s catchy in the right way so you’ll be going back to it over and over again.

You can stream and purchase Puro Odio below (but be warned, there are only three tape copies remaining!) :-
