Matalobos, “The Grand Splendour Of Death”

Guided by darkness and melancholy this band takes life late 2014 with the only purpose of go right into the core of the inner self, that place feared by ones, beloved by others, our true faces; Matalobos started when Eduardo decided to end his former band and start to write new material for a more metal/dark oriented project with Dante, also vocalist on his previous band, they made a couple of songs and got in touch with longtime friends and music colleagues, Clemente as drummer, and bass player Carlos de Anda, and so, after some preproduction sessions they entered Urvn Studios (León, México) to record their first E.P. from February to March of 2015, so it will be released that year by Inductive Oppression Records, reaching a melancholic death metal sound together with doom passages.

After EP recording them asked Germán N. to join as guitarist and strings composer for upcoming dates and writing sessions.

Matalobos presents this 2020 their most ambicious work to date, a musical and conceptual representation of the vast faces of Death, in a ensemble of 7 tracks ghoulish arranged from the bottom of their rotten souls, all of this under the title: “THE GRAND SPLENDOUR OF DEATH”.

This album will be proudly released on December 4th, 2020 by Concreto Records. Consequent foreign editions will be announced soon.

“THE GRAND SPLENDOUR OF DEATH” was recorded and mixed by Rubén Sánchez (Vst, Dark Matter) at Urvn Studios, León, Mexico.

Visually this artwork reflects a not conventional representation of that entity in charge of carrying the souls to their last journey in this plane.
Cover art authorship belongs to the master Manolo González Zavala, presenting a gloomy horrific figure, almost unrecognizable that in his hands holds life itself, fragile, ominous and putrid.
