"I climbed because it felt good to be present and focused and using my body in a natural and unconstrained manner. Big climbs take you to places emotionally, physically and spiritually you’d have a hard time getting to any other way. Peering over the edge attunes you to mortality, gives you a glimpse of the infinite. There is a sense of delight, mystery, discovery."

Tribal sounds

Last night Octavio and I attended the Force Fest, a small metal festival that took place at José Cuervo Salón, in Mexico City. We were interested in watching a couple of the announced bands, Destruction and Exciter, due to their names being known in the underground thrash metal scene, but most importantly to watch Soulfly, the band from Sepultura‘s former frontman Max Cavalera.

Unfortunately, due to some organizational fuck-ups, the festival begun 1 hour earlier and with the bands in different order than originally announced, so we arrived with enough time to only watch Soulfly before the whole event ended. To our good fortune, almost half of their setlist consisted of covers from classic Sepultura stuff, so we didn’t leave the venue with much disappointment after all…
