"Metalachi is not your mama's mariachi band." - Julian Gill, Houston Chronicle
"They combine the humor of Steel Panther, the flamboyant of GWAR, and the eclectic rawness of Rob Zombie. There’s also a little dose of Spinal Tap and a hit of Cheech & Chong. The music is classic metal covers from artists like Metallica fused with classic mariachi by Vicente Fernandez and Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan. Their setlist is punctuated by comedic interludes and skits." - Phoenix New Times
El Gordo
El GORDO (El Buckster, guitar; Gordo, vocals) spent their formative years roaming the mean streets of suburban Portland, fighting, fornicating and filling their aural orifices with an astounding array of musical styles and sounds. An amalgam of hardscrabble experiences and eccentric influences, El GORDO channel their inspiration into a soul-searching and smile-inducing setlist of songs reflecting their fluctuating feelings and evoking a multitude of emotions. From captivating covers to enrapturing original numbers, with cues ranging from Sinatra to Spinal Tap, El GORDO lay their labile moods on the line and at your feet, urging you to follow and join their singalong of the senses! SEE!--The sordid spectacle! HEAR!--The salacious sounds! SMELL!-- The perspiration of the rock 'n' roll senstaion! FEEL!-- The many moods and assorted attitudes of El GORDO!
