Arena Negra by The Myrrors [Review]

Listen to the guitars drone and slowly build build build build to nothing. The first track is over 11 minutes and it’s layers and layers of musical drone. It just drones. On top of that vocals sound like they’re being chanted in the background.

It’s…so…good.

At no point above was I being sarcastic or negative.
Droning fuzzy riffs.
Yeah.

The Myrrors’ new album Arena Negra feels like desert people making music. Despite the horns and the violins and the flutes, they sound nothing like Jethro Tull but they sound everything like the sand and the cactus and the perspiration you feel in the middle of the night in July in any southwest city.

I’m still working to get beyond the fuzz. I’ve listened to the album 5-6 times and I haven’t been able to identify each instrument listed on the back cover. The gives you a lot to travel through and a lot to discover. Dig through the fuzz man.
