Here are some reviews of two of the most important bands of Concepción (eighth region of Chile).
Both reviews are written by members of the bands.
Nov11 was a band that was born in mid-2003 showing a more political character in their hardcore. Their first demo was released in 2004. The name of the band is related to a historical fact Chile on November 11, 1983. Their second album was an EP called “Cria cuervos y te comeran los ojos”. Today the band plays some shows, but is not 100% active.
Martir is currently one of the most active bands in Concepcion. Very intense, with lyrics in the vein of Unbroken, 7 Generations and Outspoken. Their lyrics speak of social discontent and Straightedge. The band have played together for a couple of years and have two releases. First a demo, and one split with Abolición. Within weeks they will begin recording their album.
