Mexican metal hardcore group, Thell Barrio, embark on their “I Want You In The Pit”, (Eye for an Eye) European summer tour from 6th July to 9th August. This is a massive 28 concert trek, covering over 10 European countries which gives a great opportunity for fans of the unique Latin influenced band to see their heroes in the flesh.
Thell Barrio, was formed in late 2005 with the basic idea to make the voices of those who have always been oppressed by every kind and form of power and have their chance to say what they felt. They also grew-up in the neighbourhoods of Mexico, where all kinds of problems are experienced. So with an idea and a firm conviction that “once starting there was no turning back”, the band was originally formed. Thell Barrio play what they call Latin Core, a hybrid of their diverse influences. It’s an exciting mix of metal, hardcore, hip hop and Latin rhythms. Don’t miss it!
Thell Barrio are:
