Biography

Buenos Aires, Argentina (1990 – present)

No Matarás is a punk rock band from Argentina. Nowadays, the band is settled in Berlin, Germany. No Matarás was formed in Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina, in 1990. After a few gigs, the band gained recognition in the city punk circuit and soon began to share stage with some of the most renowned local and international punk rock bands.

Its music is influenced by the first punk rock sounds (The Clash, Buzzcocks, The Ramones, The Jam), the Britpop (Blur) and American alternative rock and New Wave (The Pixies, Talking Heads). Some people have compared them to the Toy Dolls, because of its electric frenzied style and the live cover both bands play of The Beatles “Yellow Submarine”.


History

The band started rehearsing in 1990, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Back then, No Matarás was formed by: Pedro Visintin (lead vocals and guitar), Vanina Fiorentino (bass) and Daniel Zaltzman (drums). The trio composed its first songs of punk rock sound and spirit and rushed into the Argentinian stages. They were an instant success.

When it came to choose a name for the band, they didn’t hesitate: as their live sound, the name should have attitude and the capacity to make their audience think. “No Matarás” (You shall not kill) is an ironic reference to the sixth commandment of the Judeo-Christian Bible. It calls to the reflection on weather these commandments -and the other mandates which guide religions- are actually its basis or mere declarations of will.
