Sol Poniente

Don Juan Matus' Sol Poniente is essentially a rollicking take on the Children of the Grave riff. But rather than focus on the dour side, these Peruvians push the song in a more classic rock direction, making it a modern day relic from the 70's and thoroughly bad ass. These four-piece are fast becoming a personal favorite, and a song like Sol Poniente underscores the notion that if you're looking for music that pays homeage to the greats but still manages to be wholly unique, South America's the place to be.

John "Arzgarth" Pegoraro - R.I.P. (December 15, 1999 to November 29, 2010)


released December 12, 2008
