Heterofobia – Queremos Ver El Mundo Arder [IMPORT] – New LP
Going through the Drunken Sailor roster, I realized some of these releases need to come over to the States for Green Noise folks before they sell out in the UK, like this album of growling punk from Monterrey, Mexico, taking goth punk and HC from icy lands and bringing it into their own innards, stretching and drying the carcass over a boulder in their homeland, ripping it apart and waving the carcass like a flag, cracking it like a whip, whipping it into action from the get go, hardcore queer punk charging through the death-rock electric fuzz like a pack of rapid canine and equine moving through the downpour of a Mexican thunderstorm and bringing the electric wildfire into town, descending on the unexpecting, "Queremos Ver El Mundo Arder [wanting to see the world burn]" and not hesitating for a moment as they stomp the skulls and rip the throats of every homophobic in sight. -- winch (green noise)

"Debut LP from the Monterrey punks, featuring members of Cremalleras. Primitive and stubborn angry South American 80's hardcore played with a total death rock vibe by this amazing punk band from Monterey, Mexico. Imagine the hybrid of Ataque Frontal and Christian Death! 10 tracks plus La Uvi cover.
"That album title translates as ‘we want to see the world burn’, for those among you who don’t speak Spanish and just came here for an ear-destroyingly good time. Should tell you everything you need to know about the debut LP from this bunch of Mexican post-punk/hardcore crossover geniuses, although if you’re still coming up short, then perhaps song titles like ‘Life of Lies’, ‘Hell’ and the matter-of-fact ‘You Disgust Me’ should help. Hailing from Monterrey, capital of Mexico’s north-eastern state of Nuevo León, Heterofobia (yup, means what it sounds like) describe themselves as ‘queer, pink and punk and not going anywhere’ – gotta love that defiant stance. Appropriately, the music is a seething, guttural assault that’ll make you wanna fuck up your brake pads before driving at 100mph across an icy lake, just to see what happens. Sounds dumb though, kids, maybe just listen to the record to getcha thrills. And believe me, you’ll wanna. So what does it sound like? Not worlds away from the darkened Scandi-core of Sweden’s Holograms or Denmark’s Iceage (when they were good, and without all the questionable rune shit), but with a character that’s resolutely its own. At times guitarist Kuni recalls the desolate swamp-rock of The Scientists; other times they’re playing in a haze of 80s goth-pop textures while running through the place like Los Crudos set on fire. Things dumb down (or dumb up, you choose) for a squalling cover of Spanish punk legends La Uvi, but it all fits. This is gnarly, righteous, pointed punk rock at its finest."
"Heterofobia coming out of northen Mexico, Monterrey to be exact. Comes screaming Heterefobia!!!! their name says it all if you are wondering what their lyrics are about! this band is apart of the new crops of amazing bands coming out of Mexico ready to say fuck you, we are queer, pink and punk and not going anywhere. Frustrated with homophobic culture m the music is agrey goth and hardcore, Daniel's vocals (from Cremalleras) are acidic screams contrasted with some killer guitar riffs that have a dirty garage sound yet keeping a strong dark cold punk feel to them. The rest of the band merges itself with Mexican po sounds from the 90's and the Madrileno wave for measure."
