Junta - _Junta_
(Independent, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
The metal attack of trio Junta is one comprised of many different elements. While death metal in essence, the music of Junta flies off the handle into an abrasive death metal attack with hints of jazzy riffs/drumming and heavy metal mentality. Needless to say, the music is stop and start action that results in a lot of cool sounds and styles to surface from this. The production of this five-song recording is pretty good, not great, and I think that the somewhat edgy flow of things gave some substance to the anarchy within. Choice cuts on this self-titled disc have to be the riotous charge of "This Vast Indifference" and the shredding stomp of "Plight". Junta are a good band that have managed to add some charm to the predictable sounds that come with death music sometimes. Good from start to finish.
