Opeth bassist Martín Mendéz’ second musical playground, White Stones, proudly releases their third studio album, “Memoria Viva”, via Reigning Phoenix Music (RPM) today (vinyl: August 9th). The nine tracks continue Mendéz’ own approach to progressive death metal, and take listeners into a soundscape which is even graced with impactful Spanish lyrics this time. Another perfect example of White Stones’ unique creations is their adaption of “Vencedores Vencidos”: The song’s introduction seduces fans with rather positive melodies alongside Martín’s clocklike bass playing before Eloi Boucherie’s firstly whispery vocal patterns pull each and everything in – to just never let them out of this driving maelstrom again.

“PATRICIO REY Y SUS REDONDITOS DE RICOTA is a band that had a great impact on my youth. They’re a mythical Argentinian rock band and very well known all over Latin America, in particular in the 80s and 90s. ‘Vencedores Vencidos’ is one of their all-time classics and I feel honoured to have a cover by them on our album!”,

states Mendéz.

Eloi adds:

“‘Vencedores Vencidos’ is one of the great classical hits from the Argentinian rock music scene, and it was a real challenge and unforgettable experience to make a cover of this immortal song. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we did reinterpreting it.”
