ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Huinca was formed in Santiago of Chile, in late 2001 by Mauricio Contreras (vocals and guitar), Miguel Yáñez (drums), Jorge “Cocke” Cumplido (guitar) and Flavio Salas (bass guitar). They previously started playing speed metal in the band Stonehenge. Recording the demo “When passions smashes reasons” in 1998, the band began their career. Some of the musicians have professional studies of music so the traditional metal music was not motivational for the band. So they started to look for a fresh new way to play music keeping the feeling and power of metal. The musical change came when the band realized that by going back to their roots, and at the same time keeping rock alive, it would be a new way to create music from the heart. Classic rock music uses folklore and black roots so “why can't we use the roots and melodies from this side of the world (the last country in the world)?” they said. So they started to compose new music using influences from north to south of Chile (Eastern island included), taking the most expressive rhythms and melodies mixing it with rock- metal music. When the music was ready, the first performances produced fresh powerful shows. This was the beginning of the creation of an album that would be powerful yet modern. After 6 months of pre-production Huinca was ready to record the songs. Telecombs Inversiones (Miami, USA) financed the record making a personal and friendly deal with the band, leaving the band free to makes future dealings with any company. Thanks to them the album was completed successfully. The album was called Huinca, same as the band, to brand the name in the minds of the audience. 10 tracks of metal, roots and rock music were recorded (including two sung in Spanish). Lyrics for (Rewards) are written from the perspective of “no more lies and abuses from the church". The Aboriginal struggle for identity, and attempts to assimilate and convert them, influenced the writing of ( Mari chi weu), the Mapuche warrior war scream, which means 'ten times we will win'. (Stone's Dreams) encourages the people to fight for their dreams. (Charity) depicts a lonely life consumed by emptiness. (Fobia), the fear of being human . (Scars) is a dark song of thoughts about broken hearts. “Chile is the major copper producer in the world. That is our most important metal, so we played with that idea making the visual concept of copper. Copper=Chilean Metal."

Nice Flavor from the Chilean metal band.
Exceptional, diverse and powerful. These guys know how to rock that's for sure but they have added quite a bit of little things like percussion, tempo changes and visuals in the videos. The best CD I've bought in a while. Muchas Gracias Amigos en Huinca!!
