Isla Macabro! (CD)

Release Date: 31/10/2014
Catalog Ref: GC044
Mixed and mastered in Mexico at Primitiv Music by Caleb and Crunchy from the surf band Lost Acapulco.

Directly from the haunted beaches of Costa Rica, baptized with the name of a fictional band of motorized rebels, Los Cuchillos (knives) are a garage-surf band with a frenetic live show. Los Cuchillos formed in 2005 by Tony Cuchillo influenced by the sounds and culture of the 50s and 60s, mixed with the aesthetics of horror movies and science fiction.
Los Cuchillos have played lots of shows in Costa Rica in the most important festivals, have toured Mexico several times, playing Vive Latino Festival in 2013, as well as Panama.
They have released the self-titled EP Los Cuchillos (2006) and the debut album Monstronautas de la Era Atomica (2008). Isla Macabro! is their second full album that has a crude and primitive sound ready to blow everybody’s ears!!!!!
With some lineup changes in this almost 10years of reelin and rockin, Los Cuchillos have created their personal style that combines rock ‘n roll, surf, fun and debauchery of guitars with high reverberation!!!
Band members: Tony Cuchillo (vocals-guitar); Conde von Storren (guitar); Pablo Hanson (bass); Fabro Macabro (drums).



Isla Macabro! Mostly instrumental surf/garage punk from, of all places, Costa Rica. They have the eerie garage-sounding keyboards & guitar sound down, and the vocal track “Voodoo Macabro” would fit nicely into the sort of stuff you’d find on those collections of obscure 60’s garage punk bands, with maybe the exception that the lyrics are in Spanish. I would like to hear more from this band. – reviewed by TheatreX (RYM, 14 July 2016).
