Editorial Reviews

The Gods of Hardfloor are back with a mighty beast of an album! Memorias Atrás is a sonic trip to Hell and, like two horsemen of the Apocalypse, Erk and Racso are riding high on thudding beats, solid bass and sounds straight out of purgatory , thus unleashing an electronic earthquake at maximum power. The Mexican Electro-maniacs have returned to the raw and straight-in- the-face sound of their early days but darker, more massive and way more intense! If the two advance singles have left you excited, we can promise you that the album will blow you away, as Hocico have easily topped their own high standards! Memorias Atrás consists of 12 striking club burners, straight out of the abyss of human existence: harsh, direct and brutal but catchy and memorable at the same time. The album is jam-packed with tracks which have the words club hit written across their faces in capital letters. and even a mid tempo smasher, such as Drowning, sports absolute floor filling qualities. The bands sound has also matured: Hocico have enhanced their music with a lot more mad sonic experiments, multi-layered rhythms and menacing atmospheric pads than in the past. But have they become quiet or tame' No way quite the contrary! The snout is barking louder and more aggressive than ever and, in 2008 A.D., Hocico are taking their dance floor terror to new dimensions! The album will be released as a limited first edition in a deluxe Digipak with 3D-front cover incl. the bonus CD The Day the World Stopped, with two unreleased songs and four remixes. With Memorias Atrás, Hocico are raising the stakes for what a grandiose hard Electro album should sound like!

Verry good dark electro/terror ebm band from Mexico. Most of the lyrics are in spanish....but even if you don't speak spanish you will probably still like this. For fans of DULCE LIQUIDO, PUNTO OMEGA, SUICIDE COMMANDO, and GOD MODULE.

I bought this here, you cannot beat $7.99 for a download!! This , in my opinion is one of Hocico's best in a while. I love all their music though! I will still buy the cd in real form though as well, I am waiting for Amazon to carry THIS edition, not the $38.00 import version. If you love a group be sure to buy the real cd too! This helps support them. If you like harsh electro, rough vocals, and evil sounding church music you gotta check out this album! Fans of heavy metal take note, it doesn't get mush darker than this!! Highly enjoyable!!

Has the overall sound of the band changed much since their debut back in 1997? No, it has become more refined but remains focused on the dancefloor. They continue to use those classic progressions to denote their home country of Mexico but they remain very simplistic in their compositional style.

Take the opening track "A Fatal Desire"; it has all those Hocico touches, the high key lines... the snarled heavily processed vocals, galloping bassline and steady 4/4 beat. Here's the deal, my fine fellows: Yelworc have returned so you'd best change this style up right now. This really is tired, very worn out dark "electro" music. If one is under the age of 25 or so, they'll eat this up but for those of us who know what devotees of Mr. Devin these two are, it's pretty revolting to have to slog through more thinly veiled theft. Why oh why do they continue to beat this dead horse with the same damned plodding sound.

Hocico have their audience, there can be no question of this, and they give the fans what they want: big fat analogue bass lines, scattershot syncopated staccato melody lines very reminiscent of a Canadian outfit who saw the world through the eyes of a mongrel dog, and nice solid unsurprising rhythms. When these guys first exploded onto the scene there was some novelty for a lot of people due to where they came from. Unlike Artefakto (RIP) however, they have chosen to stay where it's nice and safe. There is no intention from this camp to ever transcend either their sound or their image. If it ain't broke, don't fix it may well be their mantra.

I can't really say much more about this album besides the obvious: they will always be as they are, so rejoice you devotees. These boys are not going anywhere!!!
