Lex Ortega’s Belibette Album Review

Lex Ortega’s Belibette Album Review

 

From the dark mind of Lex Ortega comes his latest offering of pain and suffering to the world, this time thru his music with his band Belibette.

In 2015, Lex Ortega took the entire horror film industry and visually raped all who saw his film Atroz. Atroz is without a doubt the most brutal and all most hard to watch films in existence. Lex is back this time with his band entitled Belibette with their debut lp 72 Huries and from Atroz to his music, he hasn’t let up one bit!

Me personally growing up, i was always in to heavy metal, hard core and some death metal for the most part. Each genre had different sounds and speeds to them, but basically, it was whatever moved me is what I liked. Well, after I heard Belibette ,I let Lex know that I had to review it!

I mentioned how each style of music i listened to had its own sound and speed, well Belibette is what is called grind core. imagine if you will, taking some brutal lyrics, crashing snare drum and a lightning fast guitar riff and dumped it all in to a blender then threw a handful of razor blades in the mix for good measure while Lex growls and howls into the microphone!

The tempo is blazing fast and the vocals styling of Lex is honestly like nothing ive ever heard…..and further more (laughing),nothing i could ever understand. The band is from Mexico and all lyrics are sung in Spanish as well….that doesn’t help as I didn’t exactly ace Spanish classes in school.

But never the less, the vocal styling is truly a mystery on how they (the front man) can not only pronounce what it is they are saying, but also cant figure out how it is possible for them to be able to speak the next day after performing.

I’m going to leave you with the video for the track Sutil Posesión. I think the strobe light effect really captures the feeling of grind core. Kind of like feeling your heart pounding . I commend Lex and his band on the debut  and hope they tour the states and I get the chance to experience Belibette first handed, but in the mean time, check them out and be sure to support !!

Keep it Evil
