M-16
LA RAIZ DE TODO PODER
MOTHERWEST

M-16 is a veteran NYC unit that fully incorporates their native Latin roots into a hardcore metal sound on their latest release, the 13-track LA RAIZ DE TODO PODER. Packing Sepultura-esque wallop with Santana-like soul and a pervasive progressive edge (“Puno Al Aire”), M-16 displays a penchant for laying down tight jams in between obliterating ear drums with an rich blend of death, thrash, and modern metal (“El Camino”). Singing mainly in Spanish and peppering their raucous thrash grooves with instrumentation from their homeland of the Dominican Republic (“El Ojo De La Agua”), M-16’s juxtaposed style makes belligerent music with bongos that sidesteps novelty and aims for the kill, mashing the wares of Soulfly, Downset, Puya, Immolation, and Nonpoint into a potent sonic brew with a universally translatable aggressiveness.
