Today we visit Argentina for some pulverizing thrashing mastery. GRANADA bring us their newest single “Solve et Coagula” and we dare you not to bang your heads! This is focused with a modern and precise kill factor but also has a very raw edge of anger for old school fans of 90’s metal and hardcore. Fans of Machine Head, Krisiun or any any proper death/thrash will be blown away.
GRANADA was formed in the year 2008 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Founded by Guillermo Estévez (vocals and guitar), the band´s debut show was in 2010 with Black Dahlia Murder (USA), and continued with a series of shows in every possible venue in Buenos Aires and the rest of Argentina. With three full lengths and one EP, the band has crossed the border by touring the neighboring countries and achieving huge admiration from audiences all over the world.
GRANADA achieves their own sound with their 4th album Sincronizado, recorded at “El Pie Recording Studio” and Chulengo, produced by Guillermo Estévez. The album will be released by Symbol of Domination Prod. (Purchase HERE), and will be distributed by Icarus Records (Argentina) and Blacktape Unorthodox Records (Argentina)
The band’s remarks on the track are as follows:
““Solve” or “solutio” refers to the breaking down of elements and “Coagula” refers to their coming together. In the process of transmuting base metal into gold or arriving at the Philosopher’s stone, this contained both literal and hidden meaning. Solve et Coagula expresses transmutation from base to a finer state, the perpetual goal of spiritual growth and human evolution.“
