Sudestada: Yo soy el mar

November 30, 2018
viralstampede

With the sewing together of hardcore, punk and post hardcore, Sudestada creates a sound that is equal parts heavy handed, atmospheric and melodic. Yo soy el mar is the title of their newest offering, and within this piece of work you come to greet ten full tracks of ballistic hardcore madness. Nearly from the jump you become enveloped in a romping heavy sound that is sure to get your neck bending. The eight tracks that are sandwiched between the intro and the outro are well performed and written, creating a cohesive, fluid and well  rounded offering that you are sure to come back to.

Sudestada lulls you in to a false sense of security by providing you with a somewhat atmospheric intro before really diving in to the meat of their record. After the short intro passes, Sudestada hits you with a barrage of hardcore sickness, one right after another. Each track plays well together creating an overall cohesive sound that keeps you head banging and your neck cranking. There hardly are any pauses between cuts as Sudestada keeps the hardcore train rolling from one track to the next never really gifting you with a break in the action. The only real breaks that your neck gets are with the intro, outro and when Sudestada decides to slow things down for a beat in the middle of some of their tracks before they pick back up again.

Among their heavy handed style of hardcore, there is an underlying atmosphere that seeps through each track providing you with a darker sound than what you might normally hear. The atmospherics that steeped within each track are great additions as they add something unique as well as more diversity and variation through each track. The balance that Sudestada strikes between their brain bruising hardcore approach and the atmospherics that are injected to each track is a good one as it provides you with ten well constructed and well written tracks that are wholly memorable.

Overall, Yo soy el mar is a very solid record as it provides you with great variation and diversity through each track. The combination of numerous genres as well as the atmospherics create an overall sound that is organic and all together easy to listen to. Yo soy el mar is a solid record through and through, one that you will not find a weak track in what so ever.
