WHITE STONES Launches “Vencedores Vencidos” Lyric Video In Celebration Of New Album, Memoria Viva, Out Now On Reigning Phoenix Music (RPM)

Opeth bassist Martín Mendéz’ second musical playground, WHITE STONES, proudly releases their third studio album, Memoria Viva, today via Reigning Phoenix Music (North American CD release – July 26th; Vinyl – August 9th).

The nine tracks continue Mendéz’ own approach to progressive death metal and take listeners into a soundscape which is graced with impactful Spanish-spoken lyrics. Another perfect example of WHITE STONES‘ unique creation is their rendition of Patricio Rey Y Sus Redonditos De Ricota’s “Vencedores Vencidos.” The song’s introduction seduces fans with uplifting melodies alongside Mendéz’ clocklike bass playing before Eloi Boucherie’s initially whispery vocal patterns pull each and everything into the driving maelstrom.

Comments Mendéz, “Patricio Rey Y Sus Redonditos De Ricota is a band that had a great impact on my youth. They’re a mythical Argentinian rock band and very well known all over Latin America, in particular in the ‘80s and ‘90s. ‘Vencedores Vencidos’ is one of their all-time classics and I feel honored to have a cover by them on our album!” Adds Boucherie, “‘Vencedores Vencidos’ is one of the great classical hits from the Argentinian rock music scene, and it was a real challenge and unforgettable experience to make a cover of this immortal song. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did reinterpreting it.”
