THE STORY OF METALACHI...

 

On a hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico circa 1982,

 

Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated

 

shanty and into Rock N Roll history. What began as an

 

innocent night of snorting horse tranquilzers in a hotel

 

room with seven members of the village jai alai team

 

went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live.

 

Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill

 

advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard

 

children where born. Unable to care for her hungry

 

offspring and concerned that motherhood would

 

seriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaoke

 

league, Consuela hastily packed the babies into the

 

saddlebags of a burro and sent her children off to

 

America in search of a better life. Against all odds, 14

 

years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burro

 

knelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the Rio

 

Grande just ouside of Juarez Mexico –mere yards from

 

the U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy the

 

brothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leather

 

restraints and scampered the vast reaches of the river,

 

collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil. As

 

if by destiny, lodged in the sand beneath their tanned

 

faces was a record sleeve upon which were the words

 

“PARANOID” and “BLACK SABBATH”. For many years to

 

follow, this definitive black metal album served not only

 

as a teacher and a mentor..but also as a friend. From

 

these bleak and humble begins grew the seed that would

 

eventually be the band we know today. Often referred to

 

as the greatest heavy metal band to ever live..always

 

referred to as...METALACHI.
