Una Bèstia Incontrolable – Observant Com El Mon Es Destrux


Una Bèstia Incontrolable are a relatively new band. Formed last fall, the Barcelona hardcore outfit put out a demo before releasing an album on La Vida Es Un Mus this spring to coincide with their US tour alongside NYC’s Crazy Spirit and Barcelona’s GLAM, with whom they share members. Combining elements of experimentalism, psychedelic rock, and noise rock into a hardcore framework, Una Bèstia Incontrolable has created one of the best records of the year. The driving, primitive sound with vocals that come off as almost more chanted than yelled bring to mind a non-metal version of Power of the Spoken Word. There is also a hypnotic quality to the repetition of the riffs, although that is not to say that any of the songs’ intensity is lost, think something along the lines of a psychedelic Unsane. Una Bèstia Incontrolable is just further evidence that Barcelona has one of the best music scenes around right now with the likes of GLAM and OTAN among others. Hopefully 2014 will see a return to the US as well as a new album.
