HOCICO


HOCICO

When Erk Aicrag (lyrics, vocals) and Racso Agroyam (programming) formed Hocico back in 1993, little did the two Mexicans know that they were to become one of the most successful hard Electro acts of all time. “We never had in mind how much our music might sell. We only had a strong desire to express our feelings and to do what we wanted. We wanted to break the rules of society. The restrictions which others superimpose on us have always been a great source of inspiration. This hasn’t changed until the present day. Only the way that we express ourselves has undergone subtle changes”, Erk explains. While the debut album “Odio Bajo el Alma” was very raw and uninhibited EBM, the next two releases were gearing towards clearer structures. The aggression on “Cursed Land” and “Sangre Hirviente” was channelled for maximum impact and combined with catchy melodies and harsh beats. This concept managed to appeal to an ever-growing fan base, although the band’s basic concept remained the same. Sex, lies, death, abuse and religion have always dominated the group’s lyrics. The duo explains: “Hocico is our way to express our feelings in an honest and straightforward fashion. We are aiming at conveying these emotions to our listener with full impact in order to make them become aware of and deal with their own dark side.”
