It’s no surprise that Metalachi are beloved by Billy Idol and Avenged Sevenfold’s M. Shadows.
Hailing from Los Angeles, the five band members started out as classically trained mariachi musicians. They're now the world’s first and only heavy metal mariachi band.
They combine the humor of Steel Panther, the flamboyancy of GWAR, and the eclectic rawness of Rob Zombie. There’s also a little dose of Spinal Tap and a hit of Cheech & Chong. The music is classic metal covers from artists like Metallica fused with classic mariachi by Vicente Fernandez and Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan. Their setlist is punctuated by comedic interludes and skits.
Their 2019 third full-length, Tres, features covers of songs by Journey, Judas Priest, Guns N’ Roses, and Queen.
