The first two bands that popped into my head when I first heard DESCUBRIENDO A MR. MIME were La Quiete and The Sky Above and Earth Below. The band cites Alexisonfire, Adorno and Comadre as influences, as well. Listen to this song and hear it all for yourself:
This record is insanely catchy, with some great screamo-injected noodliness. The guitars are great, and vary from slow, building clean riffs to fast and aggressive breakdowns (not the cheesy kind). The drums are timed perfectly and match insanity with craziness and tranquility with serenity. I love how high the bass is in the mix! Most bands nearly bury the bassist beneath everything else, so it's nice to see a band embrace the bass. Other bands do so post-haste! Besides the screamo and hardcore, there is a fair amount of straight-up punk stuff employed on this record, and much to my surprise it integrated seamlessly. This record really does cover a lot of ground in 8 tracks.
The vocals and artwork blend to create a dark yet beautiful atmosphere for the band's sound and visual representation on '...Y Ya No Me Quedan Dientes por Arrancarme' (English translation = '...and I Have No Teeth Left to Pull Out'). Here are the lyrics with translations for those interested. Vocally, there's a lot of The Sky Above And Earth Below, Danse Macabre and Arches going on - passionate and screamy.
Best pick this before all 250 copies have been laid to rest, much like all of the death imagery displayed in the artwork! The transparent vinyl b-side is silkscreened with 1 of 3 animal versions - a mouse, bat and bird. These LPs look stunning - here's a picture of my copies, although the picture doesn't do them justice! North America has 50 copies and the label I am part of has'em all. So get on that before they are gone. Great music. Great vinyl.
