Leprosario is Mexico City’s Ojo Por Ojo second LP. After two years in the making they bring us a more powerful and somber album than their previous releases. 10 tracks full of ugliness, anger and despair that will delight the fans of the gloomier side of hardcore punk. There is some early English crust in the mix but you can also pick up some sludge influences in the riffs. The lyrics address topics like systemic violence, death worship in Mexico, horrible fable-like stories about cursed characters and many more subjects leaning to the shadiest side of humanity.
The chilango power trio tried to replicate the sensations you go through when you have one of those hangover anxiety attacks or maybe they wanted to musicalize a nocturnal flight on a broom DUI over a CDMX slum. Whether they delivered it or not is your call. The reality is, this record is different from most punk sounds and aesthetics that we are experiencing right now and that must count for something.
