Belgium’s La Muerte are an interesting case; originally forming in 1983, splitting up in 1994 and sporadically releasing material without officially reforming until 2014, they’ve remained entrenched in the underground. Their music is a blend of noise rock, hardcore punk, dirty rock ‘n’ roll and whatever other unhinged heaviness has been gestating in the minds of the band since their split.
They’ve got a new, self-titled album coming out in December and 24 years later, they haven’t lost their edge. “LSD for the Holy Man” leads with rumbling bass and rips into noisy punk riffs and barked vocals. Dubbed as the “Popes of the Belgian Underground” in their heyday, “LSD for the Holy Man” proves they can still hang.
