Biography

Austin, United States

Spanish-language punk/goth downers from Austin, TX, rockin’ in fine cause with grit, fury and determination. En La Oscuridad has the screamin’ vocals you’d expect from the punk/HC community they inhabit, but also plenty of flange pedal and ominous chord phrasing, running for the mid-tempo brooding of barely-hidden Bob Smith fandom employed by stressed out, desperate-sounding bands in a lineage that includes Honor Role, the underrated Crime Desire, hell even the Pack and UK Decay.

While summing Deskonocidos up as raw, snotty, Spanish-language hardcore with a heavy post-punk twist might be accurate it’d also be doing ‘em a disservice: there’s a lot going on here and while it’s brilliantly varied things also hang together well as a cohesive whole, making for a ‘proper’ album rather than just a slung-together collection of same-sounding songs. There’s a Wipers influence for sure and maybe a dash of Born Against in there somewhere too, but the flange-laden guitar lines also bring to mind the likes of Killing Joke or A Touch Of Hysteria, weaving nervously in and out of the mania and imparting a strange sense of catchiness to the untrammelled punk rock rage and energy.
