Editors’ Notes A cross between The Cure-leaning darkwave and dissonant dance-pop, Caifanes’ 1994 El Nervio del Volcán is theatrically gothic, with occult-inflected lyrics and eccentric guitar licks. While this would be the last Caifanes album with frontman Saúl Hernández and guitarist Alejandro Marcóvich playing as a unit, their performance chemistry was indeed unmatched: Hernandez's undulating wailing against Marcóvich’s moody and unpredictable fret work is a stroke of syncopated genius—check the alternating time signatures of the guitar riffs and vocals of “Afuera” and “Aquí No Es Así.”
