Perceptive visitors will remember this cover from the MALCRIA/VDS split release that I shared a few years ago. The tracks on this cassette are the same, but with a (relatively) slight tweak to the mix. Now, we can debate whether or not you need both versions, but the honest truth is that this CDMX outfit is just so fukkn good that you need to have at least one (for real though, this mix does sound better). Passionate and forceful hardcore, MALCRIA always seem like they are on the verge of complete chaos while keeping a dark urgency. Check the tempo changes in "Jóvenes Ocultos" and the all out attack of "Mierdas" that follows. It's straight punk, but these kids do it right and do it weird. Don't skip this band...highest recommendation.
