Chupame El Dedo (suck my finger), is a collaboration between the Colombian bands Meridian Brothers and Romperayo, or to be more precise, between Eblis Alvarez and Pedro Ojeda respectively. It was created for a one off live performance commissioned by the House of World Cultures in Berlin, for the Festival “Evil Music” in October 2013. The idea was to explore the death metal sound whilst adding strong tropical elements.
Because of the success the band still exists today. The first album was released in 2016 on Discrepant Records. Distorted voices, metal and even sometimes gabberhouse-like clichés are mixed with a tropical rhythm section made of salsa, cumbia, currulao & reggaeton. A second album has already been recorded and will be released in January/February 2019.
Expect tropical disoriented madness, stylistic dislocation and curious sounds. Head banging mojitos!
