Koen B. : Hallux Valgus (which is a deformity of the joint connecting the big toe to the foot) is a death metal band from Puerto Montt, Chile that exists since 2013. They debuted with a demo entitled ‘Demo MMVI’ (2016) and now they are signed with Ex Nihilo Music and they just released a six song EP that goes by the name ‘Death Will Prevail’. You can get yourself a copy by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or via Ex Nihilo’s Facebook or Big Cartel page.
‘Death Will Prevail’ is an old school underground death metal MCD that will attract those that grew up with bands such as Pestilence, Sarcofago and Sepultura way back in the Eighties, but you don’t have to be old to be wise. If you step in later and you are looking for an uncompromising, dirty, gritty yet somewhat messy deathrash metal act that will make your ears bleed, check out Hallux Valgus. Wannes Gubbels of Pentacle might say: “don’t forget the ancient feeling, it still rules!”
