We have compiled the Lives Reports of this memorable evening here, thanks to all their authors (and authors!)
Let's start with Hell Haine for United Rock Nations:
"Saturday June 3, Leather Goods was ze place to be! It was the gathering of 3 groups whose key word is: ENERGY! If the styles are different, they are all carried by a crazy energy that they transmit to the public There was also another common denominator: Vamacara Studio. It is therefore a set of different styles, but perfectly coherent that will punctuate our evening: Locomuerte
The evening begins with Locomuerte, the guys from Tijuana from 91. And they will quickly heat up the room. If you've never seen Locomuerte… Bah, you have to go! It is pure energy. The little stage at La Maroq' was a bit tight for the chicanos who fidget in all directions. They tumble on stage with a big smile on their lips and will not leave it until the end of the set and after also at the merch stand.
El Termito is like a man possessed, struggling like a little devil accompanied by his acolytes who come to play with the public. Nico Loco on bass does not hesitate to take the floor to thank the public more than once for being there and supporting the metal scene. Despite small technical problems on El Mitcho's guitar, which will force El Termito and Nico Loco to furnish without problem with their legendary banter this little latency time, and the sound sometimes a little loud covering the voices a little, their set passes at 200 per hour.
We will be entitled to a small "special effect" on Sangre Por Sangre, unless El Termito took a mandal in the mouth?
In any case, at the very beginning of the evening, we took one and we liked it!"
Let's continue with Klo's for BGP Music Live:
"To properly prepare for this little evening, I went to listen to bands I didn't know beforehand, including Locomuerte. Honestly, I thought it was nice. It was good hardcore with a little Mexican touch that brought its originality.The album Los Clasicos de Locos released last April is easy to listen to.But it did NOT prepare me AT ALL for the slap I took live.
In my opinion, the strength of the band lies in its top lines (the vocal melody, for those who don't know). They are simple, but effective, perfect for counterbalancing very dirty and stringy riffs at full speed. I particularly enjoyed the Bandolero and La Vida Loca titles, the most catchy of the lot.
If the audience, a little shy at first, hid away from the stage, the atmosphere quickly warmed up. Partly thanks to good communication from the musicians. We had the right to a few circle pits.
The troop of merry fellows radiated good humor, without the fuss. The singer even had the luxury of playing with a machete (really close to the head of the guitarist, it must be said). "
Let's continue with that of our friend Dwidou from Rock Metal Mag :
"So it's time for the Locos of the Chicano Mosh Thrash Punk Crossover, having taken over from the juggernaut Suicidal Tendencies head-on. each more energetic than the other!
This evening will be no exception to the rule and we will see our favorite Locos struggling on the boards.
El Termito on vocals and Nico Loco on bass are untenable as always. While El Mitcho delivers his punchy riffs, backed flawlessly by El Floco on drums. The public reacted well, very well even. This is largely due to the festive spirit present in the music of the Locomuerte. Violent and furious music delivered in a most festive spirit. She would almost make us forget this musical violence that we take in the face. A way to gently pass the steamroller over the heads of the spectators.
After this concert, Locomuerte will ensure not 1, but 2 dates at Hellfest, with a passage at the Off du Hellfest and another on the Hellstage. Well deserved."
Let's continue with that of our friend Romain from What The Hell :
"We start off with a real whirlwind, this group is so overflowing with energy on stage, the most Mexican of French groups, LOCOMUERTE whose style is described by themselves and the Crossover Thrash Punk Chicanos. In terms of stage performance, it's very reminiscent of the Spaniards of CRISIX , the hardcore punk side and more. But the influence that stands out the most is necessarily SUICIDAL TENDENCIES.
That said, singing in Spanish brings something different which is not negligible and in terms of atmosphere, it makes you want to let off steam, without dancing the cucaracha, but not far. Part of the band's fanbase is present this evening, and we can see that LOCOMUERTE brings together and federates its community, in particular on the title Barrio which will be taken up by the audience at the top of their lungs.
LOCOMUERTE is a real powerhouse, enough to excite the public, so it's a good start."
Then Reunee from Metal Actus :
"The evening begins with Locomuerte, a group that has also passed through the Vamacara Studio (just like Bukowski by the way) who begins their set in front of an audience present, but scattered, most of them still on the terrace to enjoy the last rays of the sun. .
Which perhaps explains why one of the first walls of death requested by the group came to nothing... but far from being discouraged, the band led by El Termito, always with a huge smile on their lips, redoubled their efforts to move an audience that is finally on fire!
The band furiously follows the titles, from the Agnostic Front to the Mexican sauce, with a little groovy note (reggaeton, I dare say!) which will hit everyone, like uppercuts swung in the stomach! An excellent discovery for me, I will follow the group more closely… "
All Rock 's Pete Circle:
"Locomuerte stormed the stage with boundless energy from the first notes. The hall, although only three quarters full, vibrated with the powerful sound of the group. The opening of the concert and the first set close together undoubtedly contributed to this overexcited atmosphere.
But it was the singer who really stole the show, fully assuming his role on stage. His captivating presence rallied the fans, who started jumping and headbanging within the first ten minutes of the concert. The sound was remarkably well balanced, allowing each instrument to be heard distinctly.
As the concert progressed, the audience warmed up slowly, creating an increasingly heated atmosphere. You could feel the heat emanating from the cheering crowd. Locomuerte's set was an incandescent ball, with every song played with gusto and passion. The end of the set was a little chaotic, but in a good way.
The singer decided to surprise everyone with a slam, climbing over the entranced crowd. It was a defining moment that woke up the audience even further, prompting screams of excitement and frenzied applause."
And finally Christophe Favière for Booste Le Son :
“So it was the Locomuerte tidal wave that opened hostilities. As usual, the Locos don't care if the audience is theirs, they rock their Latina-style thrash metal crossover with the sole objective of turning the room upside down.
And as usual, they get there quite easily as their music is festive, and their joy of being on stage communicative. And as usual, El Termito will end by plunging into the audience. Nico and his faithful bass always harangue the assembly to party, El Mitcho always armed with his faithful Flying V (even if it had a priori a small technical problem), strikes his incisive riffs, and El Floco hammers his drums a little in the dark tonight.
Raw energy this band!"
