” First Flame unleashes the somber and aggresive style that comes from Montaña Sagrada’s unique universe. A blistering 4 minute journey that takes elements from punk, hardcore and progressive metal to deliver an unrelentless barrage of savagery”.
Hailing from Santiago, Chile, Blackened Sludge Metal heavyweights Montaña Sagrada will release their hotly anticipated debut EP, titled “The Living Green”, on September 25th. Founded in 2019 and featuring well known musicians of the Chilean metal scene, Montaña Sagrada assembled to present a new aesthetic, combining ideas from the original mysticism of the southern lands of Chile. History and mythology are mixed with political scenarios that are still present in their national reality. Under multiple points of view and speaking from different voices, this music is born with no need to defend any previous aesthetic trend and defying the listener both musically and visually, filled with colors and emotions, always mysterious and full of questions.
Consisting of Rodrigo Morris (ex-Mar de Grises), Ramón Pasternak (ex-All Tomorrows) and Vincent Zbinden (ex-Entrospect, Mourning Sun), the band does not only have countless years of experience due to their backgrounds within the extreme metal genre, but also in experimental, classical and popular music in general.
Montaña Sagrada will release their debut EP, “The Living Green”, in a world passing through a global pandemic which put the Chilean revolution on hold, has put the political class in jeopardy and put into question all the current social ideologies.
