Heavy brass, brutal riffage, pounding drums, cojones, and Spanish urban lyrics that make you wonder "did they just say that?". Yes they did. They go by the name of ¡PENDEJO!
“Taste it and you won’t be sorry.” (Metal Hammer)
¡PENDEJO! is a heavy rock band from the Netherlands, founded by two cousins with a history in Latin America. Digging into their latino roots they started blending heavy riffage, right-in-your-face lyrics in urban Spanish and to top it all off, a screaming trumpet.
“Check the irony that one of the best Latin American bands I’ve heard isn’t Latin American.” (Vagabundo Espiritual)
Leaving their skid marks in the underground scene throughout Europe and Latin America - and having shared stages with influential heavyweights like MONSTER MAGNET, FU MANCHU, KARMA TO BURN and HELMET - the band puts on a show for anyone who is not afraid to be grabbed by the cojones and to be thrown into a spicy puddle of chili con carne.
“You really won’t believe your ears.” (Aardschok)
In 2010 ¡PENDEJO! released its debut album ‘CANTOS A LA VIDA’ which got great reviews from both the Dutch and the international press. Their music has been described as heavy, addictive, rough and grooving, or as a Spanish critic so eloquently put it: “Heavy rock in Spanish with balls the size of Danny de Vito”.
“Smoke, alcohol, humor, sex and ah!, Rock n Roll!” (Max Metal)
¡PENDEJO! recorded its second album ‘ATACAMES’ (2014) with producer Pieter Kloos (Motorpsycho, Ween, Barkmarket, Dool). This resulted in a daring album containing 10 songs ranging from heavy to lighthearted, and from melodramatic to outright aggressive.
“Gewinnt jeden Schwanzvergleich.” (Legacy)
