Havana, Sept 12. -Six rock bands from France and Switzerland had their own baptism of fire in this capital during the recently ended rock festival Brutal Fest, one of the best for the national rock movement in 2010.
French rock ensembles Sedative, Stortregn, and F.O.A.D., and Swiss bands Cardiac, Deadly Sin Orgy, and Destronork, performed at the Maxim Rock Theatre in Havana for four days, with their own melodic proposals, mixed with a wide and varied rank of styles.
Defending the European underground style, these European bands shared the stage with Cuban groups such as Combat Noise, Escape, Ancestor, and Jeffrey Dahmer.
After performing in Havana, the rock groups went to the Cuban western province of Pinar del Rio, where local group Medula joined them for a show with hundreds of spectators, for several hours.
Organized by the Cuban Rock Agency, French company Brutal Beatdown Records and Swiss Vrockal Metal Fest, the objective was for European rock music to strengthen links with Cuban groups.
Swiss group Destronork was one of the mostly applauded with the deployment of all its sound load, mainly formed by rhythmic cells coming from so-called "black metal." (Prensa Latina)
