The International Anti-Capitalist Punk and Hardcore Union presents Amenaza Mexicana Vol. 2 (“Mexican Threat Vol. 2”): ”Noise to Survive Capitalism in the Third World.” This is a twelve-song compilation cassette showcasing Mexican underground punk. A wide array of genres make appearances on this tape. Kicking off with a couple tracks of melodic punk rock, it changes gears and brings us some goth-y deathrock and hardcore punk before spinning on its heels, taking us back full circle. The B-side gets a little less predictable, immediately kicking you in the face with back-to-back hardcore tracks before delving into driving, metallic crust punk and some sort of metal-infused shoegaze, switching back to the easier digestible hardcore punk and more melodic punk before the weirdness gets a little too weird. There is a bit of something for everyone on this compilation, the Union really doing their part to try to unite the different punk factions. All in all, a cool compilation with an even cooler message: “Ama La Musica, Odia El Fascismo” (“Love Music, Hate Fascism”). Bring on Vol. 3! (MaximumRockNRoll)
VARIOUS ARTISTS: Amenaza Mexicana Vol. 2: Ruido Para Sobrevivir al Capitalismo en el Tercer Mundo: CS
The second installment of a series showcasing punk bands of varying subgenres, all hailing from Mexico. A dozen songs of a grab-bag of styles, such as street punk, oi, and hardcore. No Somos Nada (“We Are Nothing”) are the early favorites with the song “Nadie Para Presidente” (“No One for President”) which is the type of hardcore punk played in its most primal and raw form that makes me want to punch a hole through a wall of Turnstile records. Grito and their song “Mundo Real” are throwing their hat into the ring of tough guy hardcore sans the macho bullshit attitude. Hellmaistroz are killing it with their track “No Hay Futuro” that sounds like it belongs on a split with Tragedy or Warcry. 10 have been studying pogo punk closely and the results are infectious. Afterboltxebike closes things out with a stomper called “Gentrificación” which is no doubt about all the good things that happen when people who can afford to live within their means choose instead to infiltrate the neighborhoods of the working class. Great comp put out by truly DIY labels. Viva Mexico, cabrónes! –Juan Espinosa ( Razorcake )
