Criaturas are a mexican hardcore punk band from austin texas w/ members of Deskonocidos and they kicked Black Mike out of the band because of burrito throwing.
Criaturas are awesome. They’re in the darker hardcore punk realm, crusty late-80s-sounding but the tracks are total bursts with quick solos. And of course, a Spanish-speaking frontwoman that is completely necessary to mention not because it really matters what she is but rather because she just rages. 4 songs in like 5 or 6 minutes. The Deskonocidos album has also been one of few I can’t help but loop entirely and repetitively since I finally jumped on it late, last month, even to the point where my girlfriend can sing along and translate for me with all her college Spanish, which is notable because I usually don’t get much more out of her relative to my music-listening than the stink eye. Deskonocidos are more mid-tempo than Criaturas, but the sound is spot on for what they’re both doing.
