Hardcore punk practitioners FRECUENCIA DE MUERTE recently unveiled their mauling Death Frequency full-length via Armageddon Label.
Forged in late 2017 in Portland, Oregon, FRECUENCIA DE MUERTE (AKA FDeM) currently features vocalist Eduardo Agostocrates (Terokal), bassist Jeff Carlisle (Aütocracy), guitarist/production mastermind Brad Boatright (From Ashes Rise), and drummer Ian Makau (Lowered, Dödläge). The band released one four-song seven-inch featuring Manny of Peligro Social on second guitar in 2018 before composing Death Frequency just a few months later. Recorded and mixed by Derek Leisy at Falcon Recording Studio (Poison Idea, Final Warning, Wehrmacht) and Audiosiege and mastered by Boatright at Audiosiege (Poison Idea, Converge, Disrupt, Pentagram), Death Frequecny spews forth seven psalms of ravenous hardcore punk performed by four hardcore punk lifers with backing vocals on “F. ‘Em” by Jerry A. of Poison Idea and lyrics in Spanish leading the battle cry.
“The four of us in the band are quite giddy with how this album came together,” notes Boatright of the output. “The songs echo the music that has occupied our hearts across years and borders, and I’m personally very proud of the collective effort by everyone involved, including Derek Leisy and Ben Barnett. Punk up the volume.”

“I thought of it as a hardcore punk anthem, with a compulsive bass-and-drum tandem at work and a mix of dark and fiery riffs that hammer and slash their way into the head in equally compulsive fashion. The raw, braying vocals, the flickering melodic motif that surfaces and re-surfaces, and the bleak yet increasingly glorious solo that drives the song to its riotous finale seal the deal – this is a terrific song.” — No Clean Singing on “No HabrÃ¡ Paz”
“Fans of Los Crudos, Riesgo, and Vaaska will love the explosive-sounding Latino punk, and FDeM‘s stampeding songs will definitely entice devotees of From Ashes Rise, Tragedy, Warcry and similarly hulking hardcore bands. There’s an undeniable echo of authenticity swirling around Death Frequency, with FDeM exhibiting a diehard commitment to delivering uncompromising punk rock… FDeM have an inexhaustible supply of rabid anger and riotous energy running through their veins. (Not to mention a bite force that’s off the fucking scale.) Death Frequency is an essential purchase.” — Last Rites
