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.
