With their latest Maxi-CD “Broken Empires/Lost World”, the Mexican industrial-electro legends HOCICO had presented a contemporary testimony in their usual aggressive and energetic way of expression.

HOCICO‘s distinctive talent creates catchy melodies and a highly creative sound design to a club-ready hell ride with an addictive character. Hocico are also globally known as innovators in the dark and industrial scene. 

Erk Aicrag (lyrics/vocalist) comments on the new song:

’Backstabbers’ is an angry anthem for the betrayed. The lyrics deal with the problems many friendships and love relationships face, when someone you care for stab you in the back and then pretend to be the one bleeding, I think we all can relate to that!

HOCICO creates dark and aggressive sounds: nightmarish atmospheres, classical landscapes, and driving beats charged with adrenaline and fury. They channel the violence, isolation, and social misconduct of Mexico City into their music to exhibit what society has wronged – letting the music speak for itself. Their artistic expression is mainly focused on aggressive and violent aspects of human nature, with lyrics being equally as powerful as their sound.

HOCICO’s trademark talent creates memorable melodies and a highly creative sound design to get a club-compatible hell ride with addictive qualities. Erk and Racso persistently push themselves to be drivers and innovators in the worldwide dark and industrial scene. Erk has a side project called Rabia Sorda and Racso has a solo project called Dulce Liquido.

HOCICO has been established as one of the most active bands in the underground music scene, both live and in the studio. To date, they have released 10 albums, several live records and DVDs, countless EP’s, singles and the story continues…
