    THE STORY OF METALACHI...

    On a hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico circa 1982,
    Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidated
    shanty and into Rock N Roll history. What began as an
    innocent night of snorting horse tranquilzers in a hotel
    room with seven members of the village jai alai team
    went on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live.

    Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and ill
    advised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastard
    children where born. Unable to care for her hungry
    offspring and concerned that motherhood would
    seriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaoke
    league, Consuela hastily packed the babies into the
    saddlebags of a burro and sent her children off to

    America in search of a better life. Against all odds, 14
    years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burro
    knelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the Rio
    Grande just ouside of Juarez Mexico –mere yards from
    the U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy the
    brothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leather
    restraints and scampered the vast reaches of the river,
    collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil. As
    if by destiny, lodged in the sand beneath their tanned
    faces was a record sleeve upon which were the words
    “PARANOID” and “BLACK SABBATH”.

    For many years to follow, this definitive black metal album served not only as a teacher and a mentor..but also as a friend.
    From these bleak and humble begins grew the seed that would
    eventually be the band we know today. Often referred to
    as the greatest heavy metal band to ever live..always
    referred to as...METALACHI.
