Question!

Hey y'all. Does anyone know of any good Latin American metal or punk or hard rock bands that make use of traditional Latin music styles (salsa, flamenco, merengue, mariachi, etc.) in their work? Or Caribbean (calypso)? I've been trying to find some, but coming up mostly empty. So far, I only know about Des+Karadas (excellent punk/flamenco from Spain) and some band from Trinidad called Skid"Nevely that sounds like Blink 182 with steel drums.

Thanks. It's actually pretty easy to find bands singing in Spanish -- there's tons of metal in South America, say. What I'm interested in is metal/punk/rock bands that use traditional instruments or melodies or rhythms in their music. The way, say, Orphaned Land uses traditional middle-eastern sounds in their music.

Flametal are metal/flamenco fusion. They're really good at both styles but I'm not a fan of how they combine them. Still worth a listen, though.

They met when they both joined a speed metal band but decided to go to their own thing.

Their cover of Orion live with Rob on bass is sex.
