I recently caught up with guitarist and grammy multi-nominee Francisco “Chucky” Oroz of legendary Mexican death metal band CRS (Cirrosis) to talk all about the latest “Live In Isolation” Ep due to be released on all major platforms as well as physical formats via Concreto Records June 21.
The legendary band from the northwest of Mexico CRS (aka Cirrosis) lashes out with the release of new material entitled “LIVE IN ISOLATION”. It´s a four track EP recorded in an exclusive live session for the online festival “MOSHFEST” in September 2020, which includes a previously unrealesed song “The Daydreamer’s Nightmare” premiered at this E.P. with a guest singer “Quetzalín Dominguez” from the Mexican band “LOST NEBULA” you can watch below the video of this single as a promotional. After the international success achieved with his latest album “The Collector of Truths” and with more than 20 years without a live presentation, the live session emerges as a great gift for his followers. The EP shows that CRS is a high-level band that carefully develops all its aspects, the virtuosity of its musicians and their millimeter execution, the great sound and video quality, a clear image as a band but above all they give us a walk through different styles of metal that always lead to raging old school death metal. They celebrate 30 years of hate showing us that they have not died in any way. Its scenic presense is still as impressive as it was in the 90s. Sir OZ lets out angry screams of despair, Chucky sits on his throne as one of the greatest metal guitarrists in Mexico proving that it’s not all about complexity, but about good and powerful riffs and well-structured solos, jumping from style to style. and coloring with amazing acoustics and melodies, Tavo Ramírez shows the technical and precision level that a Latin American drummer can have, blast beats, good nuances but above all good taste. As if that were not enough, they have an extraordinary collaboration, the virtuoso and famous bassist Kello Gonzalez (PARAZIT, NATA) accompanies them providing innovative bass arrangements that show that great musicians end up recognizing themselves. The E.P. was recorded, mixed and mastered by its guitarist and multi-nominee Grammy: Francisco “Chucky” Oroz, it couldn´t be otherwise. But not everything ends there, since for all the followers that involve CIRROSIS the EP offers two live songs as BONUS TRACKS recorded in 2000 in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, “Fariseos” and “Negando lo No Negadi “in both tracks it´s possible to appreciate why they were the kings of the stage in those years, hatred, alcohol and blood, in addition to an honest proposal is what these great death metal musicians transpired.
