Mexican Chili Funeral Party
Mexican Warrior's Revenge
May 2017
Released: 2017, Sliptrick Records
Rating: 3.0/5
Reviewer: UK Team

The bands intro (which explains everything perfectly well so no need to re-write) reads thus:

“Mexican Chili Funeral Party was formed in the summer of 2009 in Milan utilizing influences such as Kyuss, Brant Bjork, Queens of The Stone Age, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. The four have developed over the years, crafting their own distinctive style by entering the stoner and hard rock realm. The band released their first self titled album in 2014 and have since built a strong reputation on the live circuit supporting such luminary’s as with Fu Manchu, The Shrine, Unida, Zu, Spirit Caravan, Nick Oliveri and God Is an Astronaut amongst others.”

This is therefore the second full album from the outfit.

Technically, they are certainly proficient musicians (is there any excuse not to be nowadays?) and the whole thing is well put together. I really enjoy the fact that there are a couple of numbers where the emphasis is taken well away from the lyrics, on tracks like Power of Love and La Ballatta del Korkovilhor. My favourite of them all is probably track number 10, confusingly and entertainingly named 11. Rhythmically and dynamically throughout the whole album is varied, and they have evidently put a lot of thought into it.

All in all, however, this isn’t an album that wowed me. It’s a difficult one to even try to explain why, as it certainly seems to tick boxes for what I look for in a piece of work; it’s really quite catchy in places, decent riffs, I just wasn’t blown away by it. My girlfriend loved it and even asked for it to be put on again (our music tastes, erm, differ) so maybe it’s just me. In summary, it’s a well made, well played and thoughtful album that I expect to appeal to a pretty wide audience. Just not me.
