Our favorite heavy metal mariachi band — Metalachi — serves up a spectacular video for their version of Bohemian Rhapsody, featuring special guest star Felipe Esparza. Their third album — inexplicably called Tres — is available now.

Winnipeg, Manitoba, is the home of The Mariachi Ghost, the world’s best Mexi-Canadian progressive metal band. This live performance of Susana shows why. We don’t always feature 7-minute-long music videos, but when we do, they’re MexiMetal. 🙂

losmariachisenoritaThis relatively unknown 2011 (or 2013?) video from Mexican rockers Los Mariachi just re-appeared on Vimeo with much better video and audio than the YouTube original and we’re glad it did.

That’s Ian Alvarez on soulful vocals, Carlos Casquejo shredding on the guitar, Ruben Balagot pumping it out on bass, Eddie Perez playing lyrical keyboards, and JamJam Emmanuel hitting hard on drums. Firme rock! [Mas…]

Ozzy Osbourne’s Crazy Train never sounded like this. Maybe it did sound like this but it’s all a crazy dream. Metalachi makes the metal music of someone’s dreams. Or the mariachi music of their nightmares. Shhh. Quiet now. Let’s listen in …..

When the smoke clears, survivors, if […]

The Los Angeles Times wrote: “Dare we dub him the Latin Hendrix?! The fastest fingers in the West, a massive talent poised to break out and kiss the sky.” Omar […]
