I know a lot already from thrash and core and I'm not really into black so much yet, so I'd like to know more bands from my land that have another direction (power, death, melodeath, symphonic, progressive), do you have any recommendations?

Would be nice if you also have some bands that sing in spanish.

I know of course Transmetal by the way, and Ira.

The Chasm is easily my fave Mexican band.. epic progressive death metal with lots of dark melodies and long, mind-bending instrumentals.

A friend of mine described Acrania's last album Fearless as "Atheist with a sombrero": they play intricate tech death with a strong latin influence and uncommon instruments

I still don't know how to feel about it, but it's interesting for sure!

Absolutely. Daniel is practically a demigod among men.

@OP, try Cenotaph, especially Gloomy Reflections of Our Hidden Sorrows if you're up for some moody death metal. Their other albums are well worth your time as well. And yeah, Corchado has his hand in that band as well :lol:

Mexican death metal is a wonderful thing. Cenotaph and The Chasm are great. I have three Mexican death metal bands to recommend, it's a bit hard to compare to other bands as the first point of reference would probably be the others. I'm a bit hesistant to draw comparisons because the first things that come to mind are Infester and Revenant, which are also the last two bands I listened to. :lol:

Pyphomgertum are a dark, old-fashioned death metal band. Similar sound to other early-90s death metal without brand-name production. They basically have one album, Gorific Carnal Confessions, which was "revisited"/rerecorded years later. They also did a split with Sweden's Dawn, the other side of which is essential.

Infinitum Obscure are another great death metal band, similar to The Chasm. More modern, intense, technically skilled and tight. Focused and dark - they blend some of the eerie atmospheric melodies with fast death metal. Very consistent - pick any of the three albums and give it a listen.

Shub Niggurath are also a death metal band. The definitive recording would be "The Kinglike Celebration" but if you're averse to a bit of blackening in your death metal, you might be better off checking out their earlier EPs. The earlier stuff is a bit reminiscent of Revenant, being Slayer-influenced but also mid-paced much of the time. Killer stuff that sets the atmosphere at a medium pace, then rips into loose, fast death metal.

I have this pretty nice little 7" "souls vortex" by a mexican death metal band called hardware, which is more on the weird, experimental side of things. check it out, it's on youtube.

I enjoy a lot of Mexican metal, and I own a lot of it. I know you arent too into black metal but if you arent opposed to some black/death stuff, I really enjoy Hacavitz. Their most recent album is almost completely black metal but you may enjoy some of their earlier offerings. Great stuff nonetheless.
