The Anger Of God.

I'm back from my weekendtrip to Eindhoven and I survived My Dying Bride. They actually performed a great show.
Now something different: La Ira De Dios is a Psychedelic/Space/Stoner band from Peru. They made three records and in my opinion these two are the best of this band. The last album is called Cosmos Kaos Destruccion (released 2008) is different than the first two albums, some more Punkier.

The band was founded in 2001 by guitarist Chino Burga. Hailing from Lima/Peru they started as a trio first including bass player Alí and Tito Renteros (drums). Based on a psych/space origin LA IRA DE DIOS developed to a jam band with a heavy, raw and sometimes even violent attitude adding stoner, punk and krautrock elements to their sound. In 2002/2003 the first self-released album 'Hacia El Sol Rojo' was produced, re-issued by the german Nasoni Records label on compact disc and vinyl in 2005.

Some changes lead on to a new line-up in 2006 remaining Chino Burga as the only founding member. LA IRA DE DIOS produced the next album 'Archaeopterix', this time with Xtian Abugattas responsible for electronic effects. He became a steady member from now on accentuating the band's spacey elements.

On their 2006 tour in Germany they performed a gig on the Trip In Time festival. Initiated by the german World In Sound label an inventive collaboration with Tom Brehm (Dragonwyck) and several german musicians started immediately. The new project produced an album within some days under the moniker OBSKURIA provided with a concept which is typical for space rock.
