Metal music is probably made in every country of the world except North-Korea of course. Actually Venezuela has a vivid metal scene with at least 426 pretty good metal band even though some of them have split up. The Venezuelan band Sulgogar hasn`t split up as they are very active and at the end of June they released their first full-length album entitled Cannibal-Toon.
This is one statement about Sulgogar from the magazine Spirit Level Magazine, «Sulgogar are on mission to be heard. The shredding guitar solos accompanied by the deliciously evil rhythm sections are enough to make you feel as though you are being torn apart limb from limb». The track En El Ovido,
Sulgogar are actually great and fascinating sounding mixture of black, death and thrash metal. A lot of the music is very heavily rooted in the 80’s and 90’s but also sounding very modern at the same time. The new album starts with a cartoon oriented intro before the more heavy stuff arrives. The riffing are often melodic and always with much power. There are a fair amount of death metal growls and thrash metal and black metal elements throughout Cannibal-Toon, and there are plenty of blast beats.
The band released the EP Science Of Beyond last year. The band is a trio consisting of Sting Weiss, (Vocals/Bass) Steve Weiss (Guitars) and Svetlana Sevostianova (Drums). Sulgogar was founded at the end of 2016 in the town of Duaca, located in the municipality of Crespo, north of Barquisimeto (State of Lara). They are considered as the first and only metal band in that area to date. The trio is mainly inspiration is Impaled Nazarene, from whom they took some musical ideas. They also have much influence from other groups of different genres such as Violator, Svartsyn, Mayhem, Burzum, among others. The lyrics of Sulgogar are inspired by sinister themes, such as urban legends and mysteries, as well as a bit of social criticism.
