The grind core assault from Spain named MACHETAZO has been considerably attacking the top charts in the last two years. Next year (2014) this pack will be celebrating its 20th anniversary and they will also massacre Obscene Extreme Festival. Their latest album from 2013 is titled „Ruin“ and it is a return to the roots and almost a turning away from gore attributes.

The whole recording is unbelievably brutal and it is no wonder it disappeared from destribution with lightning speed. It seems moreover MACHETAZO have a fancy for a domestic label Doomentia they have chosen as their home side. This is a dark horse of the festival.


Born in 1994 into the deepest underground scene of the Spanish Northwest Coast, under the influence of 80’s / early 90’s grindcore, death metal, crust, doom and old school horror cinema, staying on a constant non-stop activity for 20 years, releasing tons of records all around the world, with labels from Spain, USA, Sweden, Japan, Czech Republic, UK, Germany, Italy, Malaysia, Poland... and touring and playing fests around Europe and USA, including classic places like CBGB in New York City, Maryland Deathfest, Obscene Extreme Fest or SWR Fest.
