Cultura Tres is a band with a history of defiance and perseverance that started more than a decade
ago in the small town of Maracay, Venezuela.
The band had been until then a DIY powerhouse that steadily gained the respect of the South�American sludge-doom scene.
During the sludge-doom era of the band, guitarist brothers Alejandro and Juanma Montoya
brought out a number of independent releases, but despite various musical highlights such as touring
Europe, Japan and South-America or being declared “Discovery of the month” by Metal Hammer
UK, the early aspirations of the Montoya’s would lack the resources and team members to reach the
next level. A number of financial challenges and even personal tragedy would eventually put years of
silence to the their musical output.
The early efforts of the brothers wouldn’t go totally unnoticed by recognised musicians and
publications though. Cultura Tres would be mentioned and even featured despite its unsigned status.
Magazines such as; Burrn (Japan), Decibel (USA) would praise the band’s originality and it wasn’t
unusual to see famous musicians wearing Cultura Tres t-shirts on stage.
Noticing the prevalent interest in the rarity of these early DIY releases, the Montoya’s re-gained the
energy to ignite a new Cultura Tres, this time within a team with similar aspirations, and with a
renewed artistic vision. A new vision of what South-American heavy music should sound like.
In 2019 after hearing about the plans for a new Cultura Tres, old friend Paulo Xisto Pinto Jr.
(bass player of the almighty Sepultura), surprised the brothers by offering to join in.
And who better than Paulo to help shape a sound representing South-American metal? Of course
Alejandro and Juanma were honoured and happy to welcome him on board.
Soon after, the first demo sessions took place in a studio in Amsterdam where the three musicians
explored new ideas and found a musical common ground. The resulting style retained elements of the
psychedelic-sludgy past, but incorporated the groove of a more metal oriented vibe that Paulo
brought in with his Sepultura influence.
After these sessions it became clear that the 4th member of the band had to be not only skilled but
also familiar with South-American grooves, and since the driving force behind Cultura Tres was now
friendship and artistic view, it made Jerry Vergara Cevallos an obvious choice. Jerry, a Venezuelan�Colombian drummer and close friend, was an exceptional performer who shared the same obsession
with creating metal with a new twist. He was delighted with the demos and joined immediately.
During the following three years and despite of the pandemic, Cultura Tres went deep in the making
of the album “Camino de Brujos” (Trail of Witches), an album that explores new and old musical
textures;
The power of thrash-metal with the eeriness of sludge and the melancholic feel of classic rock, all
through the scope of organic and realistic recordings, evoking the way heavy rock sounded before
“over producing” became a thing.
“Camino de Brujos” was released on April 7th through Outono / Universal Music Group in the
Americas and in the rest of the world through AJM / Bloodblast.
The record has been praised by the media for its darkness, heaviness and beauty. Listen for yourself
and let the music lure you into the new sound of South American metal, you won’t be disappointed.
