2013 – present (6 years)
Los Ateos play evil black metal. Learning their name might serve as another hint toward their aesthetic. In reality, there is very little frosty Norwegian riffing in their style, and rather a bottomless well of inspiration and original ideas.
Formed in 2013, the band didn’t get together to become rockstars or to tour the world. Rather, singer Raquel was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and her doctor suggested she take up music to help her. Boyfriend/guitarist Jerry suggested forming a band where she sang and bashed the drums; when they decided to take it a little more seriously they hired Rod, a veteran of many bands and a record engineer, to bash the kit. Since then, they haven’t stopped playing in small and medium-sized venues, having even played a show at a subway station for the amusement of commuters.
