Nasty Sludge

Cultura Tres
South American sludge/ doom/ psychedelic

Now hailed as the national rock/sludge pride of Venezuela, Cultura Tres came from
far. With the first EP "Seis" (2007) the band already outgrew the South American
continent. But only after releasing debut album "La Cura" in October 2008, the
band started to get noticed worldwide. During the preceding year of rigorous
composing, Cultura Tres incorporated many influences into their sound, ranging from
sludge to doom metal and from death metal to classic rock.
Important magazines in Europe and Japan praised “La Cura” for its dark and
original music, and Metal Hammer magazine even selected Cultura Tres as the
month's global discovery. The release tour took the band for 18 months across
Europe, South America and to the first well-received shows in Japan. During that
period the band also released three video clips that gained them a world-wide cult
following in the underground doom & sludge scene (for example being featured band
on Doom Metal Alliance, and
In the summer of 2010 the members locked themselves up in the studio to prepare
the second album: “El Mal del Bien”. The result is - in the band members’ own
words - “an album with a single clear direction”. Cultura Tres delves deeper into
the dark atmospheric vein that already showed itself at moments in debut album
La Cura. The daring album opener “Propiedad de Dios” sets the mood: it sounds like
the soundtrack of a tragic cult movie. The songs that follow evoke the witchery,
slavery, oppression and religious madness that influence the South American
continent to this day. Being a concept album adds another dimension to the
individual songs. A patient listener will be dragged into a hallucinating trip around
the insane world the album paints.

The Artwork the whole album concept is very awesome....dark and nasty, great work and really angryfucked up sludge/doom/stoner with a touch of Soulfly and Trash influence from this nice dudes, in future I can imagine in CULTURA TRES and i hope i can see them sometimes live, i want to know how the sound live works. Respect and honor to this get the great album "El Mal del Bien" ...because its good for you!!!
