La Coruña, Spain (1994 – present)

Machetazo was born in the year 1994 in La Coruña, Spain.

Firstly it was just a side project into noise-grind until Dopi left his previous band and decided to focus in Machetazo taking it to an absolute level of dedication and changing the musical orientation leaving the noisecore elements and turning it into old school 80s grindcore with a big influence of nordic death metal,imagine a mix between Terrorizer,Repulsion,Carcass,Autopsy,Nihilist,Carnage and Funebre and you get the point of
what Machetazo is about.

The second demotape was the one who opened a lot of gates,catching the attention of Charlie Infection(ex-drummer of Psycho) who released it on 10”MLP and getting proposals for a few splits and of course the deal with the New York based label Razorback Records,their main label still ‘til today.

Machetazo during the first years was mostly Dopi’s project,with various collaborators and members going in and out,but after the release of the first album Rober came at guitars as a definitive member. Rober and Dopi recorded the second album and just after the release Carlos came as bassist in the year 2001,then we could say Machetazo started to be a real band, a classic power trio that still prevails ‘til today, trying hard to survive in a country with nule support for underground extreme music and fighting trends and obstacles everyday.

Anyway Machetazo has a strong reputation and feedback worldwide specially in the USA,Mexico and Japan.

    Machetazo los putos jefes!!!!, los vi muchas veces, la primera en 1999 en Gijon presentando el "Carne de Cementerio", tenian dos guitarras y fue algo increible, tocaron una cancion de Macabre incluida.Tambien los vi en Gijon presentando el "Trono de Huesos" fue su mejor concierto, no hay palabras para describirlo una mezcla de Repulsion;Carcass primeros;Autopsy; y si me apuras a las demos de General Surgery, auntentico death grind a la vieja escuela, pense que la sala/bar se caia abajo.Machetazo son los mejores!!!!.Dsifruto tanto de Machetazo como de Terrorizer lo que pasa que ultimamente tambien me gustan mucho los Explosions in the Sky, post rock , para tomar una cafe con leche tranquilo sobre las 15h.
