La Muerte to release new self-titled studio album on December 7th 2018

Founded in Brussels in 1983, La Muerte’s mythical reign over the Belgian Underground came to a grinding halt in 1994. Yet across those years and in the archives/subversive litanies of revered cult heroes, comparisons wherever La Muerte were concerned would fluctuate riotously. Almost as wildly in fact as the music they produced; from i-D to Sounds, Melody Maker to NME, La Muerte became best-known for peddling alternative metal and discordant noise, like an inebriated midnight melee between Motörhead, Velvet Underground, The Birthday Party and Butthole Surfers.
