Four years after their unanimously acclaimed self-titled album, cult Belgium metalheads, LA MUERTE, continue to push their boundaries with SORTILEGIA. The album is again produced by LA MUERTE and DÃ©hÃ (Wolvennest, Mongolito...).
Following the words of Didier Moins aka Dee-J, the time passed allowed all the members to grow together, as a band: 'Nothing is calculated with us...' - says Didier 'Even if the music evolutes, or explores different paths, the spirit, and the vision remain the same. We are still rough and edgy as ever. It is still impossible to categorize or explain exactly what we do. In this album, we still find the ingredients, but also the ethics, that make La Muerte so peculiar and radical'.
'Sortilegia'? A scorching soundtrack to the Apocalypse. La Muerte returns to battle with an even more intense, massive, and cohesive burner than their 2018 self-titled album. Once, in response to a journalistic question, Dee-J and Marc du Marais called their work 'morbid surrealism,' which defined their intentions better than any other label. But if you really have to categorize, why not: 'Borderline Rock': always pushing the blade a bit deeper, and keeping it sharp. In the band's cauldron, a decapitating mixture of psychedelic, metallic and noisy sounds still simmering. La Muerte has lost none of its raw and fierce radicalism.
Founded in Brussels in 1984, La Muerte's mythical reign over the Belgian Underground came to a grinding halt in 1994. Yet across those years and in the archives/subversive litanies of revered cult heroes, comparisons, wherever La Muerte was concerned, would fluctuate riotously. Almost as wildly in fact as the music they produced; from i-D to Sounds, Melody Maker to NME, La Muerte became best-known for peddling alternative metal and discordant noise, like an inebriated midnight melee between MotÃ¶rhead, Velvet Underground, The Birthday Party, and Butthole Surfers. Their cult status was born.
