It's hard to make out what Sakes is screaming about — his voice sounds more like another instrument in the mix than a singing voice — but that adds to, rather than detracts from, the thrilling mystery of the music. Nevertheless, song titles such as "My Lacerations," "Torture," and "Code Blue" should give some indication of Sakes' lyrical obsessions. This is aggressive, angry music, sounding like a machine propelling forward. Recuerda is filled with complex rhythms, foreboding chords, and quick tempo changes. Exhilarating stuff.
