|NEWS:||September 2022 : Steve Gadd and the WDR Big Band: The Gadd Gang reunion in large format! // 09/23/2022 !|
|Fileunder: Hard Rock / Heavy Metal / Stoner|
|Heavy brass, brutal riffage, pounding drums, cojones, and Spanish|
urban lyrics that make you wonder "did they just say that?". Yes they
did. They go by the name of ¡PENDEJO!
“Taste it and you won’t be sorry.” (Metal Hammer)
¡PENDEJO! is a heavy rock band from the Netherlands, founded by two cousins
with a history in Latin America. Digging into their latino roots they started
blending heavy riffage, right-in-your-face lyrics in urban Spanish and to top it
all off, a screaming trumpet.
“Check the irony that one of the best Latin American bands I’ve heard isn’t
Latin American.” (Vagabundo Espiritual)
Leaving their skid marks in the underground scene throughout Europe and
Latin America - having shared stages with influential heavyweights like
MONSTER MAGNET, FU MANCHU, KARMA TO BURN, MONDO GENERATOR and
HELMET - the band puts on a show for anyone who is not afraid to be grabbed
by the cojones and to be thrown into a spicy puddle of chili con carne.
“Schwere, wuchtige Wüsten-Riffs” (Rock Hard)
In 2010 ¡PENDEJO! released it´s debut album ‘CANTOS A LA VIDA’. Their music
has been described as heavy, addictive, rough and grooving, or as a Spanish
critic so eloquently put it: “Heavy rock in Spanish with balls the size of Danny
“Smoke, alcohol, humor, sex and ah!, Rock n Roll!” (Max Metal)
¡PENDEJO! recorded it´s second album ‘ATACAMES’ (2014) with producer Pieter
Kloos (Motorpsycho, Ween, Barkmarket, Dool). This resulted in a daring album
containing 10 songs ranging from heavy to lighthearted, and from
melodramatic to outright aggressive.
“Gewinnt jeden Schwanzvergleich.” (Legacy)
Between 2013 and 2018 the band did several tours in Europe and Latin
America, including their European tour as support for Monster Magnet in 2018.
“Unverschämte Horny Asshole Desert Mariachi Music!” (Time For Metal)
For their latest full-length album ‘SIN VERGÜENZA’ (2018), also recorded by
Kloos, the band continued it´s journey into the mostly untouched area where
brass and heavy guitars meet. On ‘SIN VERGÜENZA’ (´Shameless´ in Spanish),
the band displays a musical attitude as shameless as the lyrics on this album:
right in your face, unconventional, and not afraid to cross the limits set by
moral censors. All of it, of course, interlaced with the acidic humor ¡PENDEJO!
is known for.
“Mitreissend, abwechslungsreich, kraftvoll und voller dreckiger spanischer
In 2019 !PENDEJO! toured in Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Germany and
Holland. Shortly after their Swiss-German tour in January 2020, just before the
Corona-shit hit the fan, the band recorded four covers, among others a version
of Black Sabbath´s ‘THE WIZARD’, and of Iron Maiden´s ‘WRATHCHILD’, both in
On August 26th 2021 ¡PENDEJO! will release ‘TOMA’, an album containing
those four covers and four live tracks.
