A.N.I.M.A.L. Essentials

A.N.I.M.A.L. Essentials

With their beastly howls and thundering grooves, A.N.I.M.A.L. kicked radio-friendly rock en español to the curb and helped give rise to Latin American nu-metal. To summon that ‘90s metal movement, they emphasised thrashing hooks while delivering a sociopolitical agenda. They spark fury on “El Nuevo Camino del Hombre” as they call comrades to combat injustice, and the way they channel gangsta rap on hits like “Loco Pro” is on par with the lyrical indignation of N.W.A. The versatile rioters unleash fuming basslines on tracks like “Gritemos para No Olvidar”, a plea for social change with funk-metal flair reminiscent of RATM.
