"Climbing for speed records will probably become more popular, a mania which has just begun. Climbers climb not just to see how fast and efficiently they can do it, but far worse, to see how much faster and more efficiently they are than a party which did the same climb a few days before. The climb becomes secondary, no more important than a racetrack. Man is pitted against man."

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…
