This band should be HUGE!! The fact that it is not (they actually are not even currently signed to a record label) is a testament to both bad marketing and the general public's lack of imagination. This band single handedly created a new genre: "salsacore". They bring elements of tropical music, hip hop, jazz, and speed metal together to create what I consider a masterpiece. The variety and musicianship in this recording is impeccable. Some songs are so extreme that you don't know whether to dance or headbang. My advice: do both and buy this CD. You will not be dissapointed.

Puya have produced something amazing with this debut album on MCA. Coming out of Puerto Rico are the jazzy latino sounds of something like Buena Vista Social Club colliding with Santana. Wait there's more! On complete American turf, Pantera, Ultraspank, and Snot all crash together on a battlefield and begin making some really loud music. These two collide on a sonic freight train and the music that comes out is called Puya. With great bass lines, Spanglish vocals, and great beats, this album cannot be beaten. Except in the guitar area. While most of the time the guitarist can produce crushing riffs, songs like Oasis wind up with guitars fit for 80's metal, which is not my area. My favorite tracks here are Sal Pa' Fuera, Oasis, Fake, and Whatever. There is only one track here that I do not like, and that is Keep it Simple, a salsa track with nothing else in it. Some other unique Spanish rapcore bands to check out are Psycho Realm, Molotov, and Control Machete.

Puya...what a hell of a band!I saw these guys a couple years ago with Incubus and they rocked the house down. Much like Incubus, they have cool jazzy/funky rhythms that make you wanna shake yo' booty! But your booty will be moshing in a second because before you know it, these guys slam an all-out, Latino-spiced thrash assault right in your face. Muy bien! Mas!Mas!MAS! I'm tired of the overhyped Latin pop invasion, let's see a Latin metal invasion! Viva Puya!

I first saw Puya's video "Oasis" on MTV's "1999: The Return of the Rock," and it totally blew me away. The beginning comes with a harcore beat, similar to "Rage Against the Machine's" "Guerilla Radio," then launches into a soft, salsa type Spanish singing section, then a LOUD explosion of guitars and screaming vocals, then back to the singing (except now in English). All the songs on this album ooze the prime in salsa/hardcore creativity, yet manage to keep an incredible variation. Keep it going, dudes!

...with even a little Primus thrown in for good measure. Funk Metal fun from this split-personality group of guys. The guitar work is outstanding --- will have to look more into this guy. The overall album is uneven, with the slower numbers detracting from the pace set by some of the earlier numbers

However, the best songs on here defy anything you've heard before. Check it out.

Puya is an outstanding new band that is just starting to get noticed. They have a unique style of music, its heavy metal, but with some groovy latin beats. I first heard of them at the Ozzfest concert and again at locobazooka (WAAF event) and they absolutely rock in concert. I don't usually mosh, but I couldn't help myself with this band, they are absolutely amazing in concert!

i saw these guys play at ozzfest this year. never heard of them before. but they sure can play. in their first track oasis, they come at you nice and soft with a nice sounding spanish style music. then BOOM! it's a full attack from the vocals of the band. if you like stuff that you can headbang to, then give this album a try.

I heard Puya's record while still a college radio DJ, and it struck a nerve with me. Being a metalhead of Latino heritage, I didn't have many peers or touchstones to go by. So when I heard of a Puerto Rican metal group playing out of Florida who just signed to MCA, I knew something big was about to happen. But enough about my reactions; let's get to the record.
Puya play what the uninitiated and trend-happy refer to as "nu-metal," but with a major and most welcome twist. A very puertoriqueno vibe can be found throughout their sound (Think Pantera and Biohazard jamming with Tito Puente [Vaya con Dios] and Carlos Santana). Add some Spanish-language rapping and you have a sound that's as heavy as metal gets and yet still remains as familiar and as homesickness-inducing as the island.
"Oasis," "Sal Pa' Fuera" and "Retro" are the rockers on this disc that will have you screaming the lyrics (isn't Spanish a beautiful language?) and punching stuff in no time, even with the timbales and horns in the background. "Remora," "Keep It Simple" and "Trinidad" will have you dancing salsa one minute and moshing the next with their boriqua sensibilities and neck-snapping riffage. "Solo" is the high-water mark here; a soulful and yet crunching ode to integrity, ethnic pride and familia that will have you singing, dancing, moshing and hugging your famms all in the space of four minutes.
The short of it is this: If you like metal with originality and (more importantly) soul, then Puya is the band you're looking for.
