International Press quotes about "El Mal del Bien"
(USA) – 9/10
Cultura Tres didn’t sit still on their sudden big early success, but were able to push towards evolution of their dark sound with great diversity: sludge, doom, and occasionally touches of post-metal, dark psychedelia and even folk music. (…) I got haunted by their album: these guys are “deep underground” and sound so well ….
“Cultura Tres manage to strike a raw nerve that most new UK and US bands don't quite hit.”
“With this album under their belts it will only be a matter of time before Cultura Tres are huge.”
“I feel blind-sided by how magnificent this album sounds.”
(USA) - 9/10
This is haunting stuff, definitely something to listen to with headphones in a dark room. So many emotions are elicited from El Mal del Bien's contemplative swells…
-Grinder Magazine (Chile) – 5/5
Followers of Sludge / Doom pay attention: Cultura Tres is an amazing Venezuelan band. Their second - most acclaimed - album sounds heavy, dense and intense.
(Hungary) - 9/10
Overall, this LP is brilliant, it was long ago that I heard such a daring band. Their songs sound as one style, and yet each is completely different, showing three different faces: sludge, doom and psychedelic rock.
-The Sludge Lord (UK)
Top-notch Doom/Sludge Metal from our hugely talented South American cousins. This new release is their best work yet: nothing comes close to this amazing album.
Furious South American sludge/ doom metal: 'El Mal del Bien' is a really dynamic, non-linear trip in the genre.
One of the most interesting sludge/doom bands these days, hails from Venezuela.
-The Soda Shop (USA)
Get this sludgey good album now!
Monumental riffs. Slow, very slow. The song arrangements stray from the path of sludge on numerous occasions: incorporating elements from traditional music, hallucinogens and melodic, calm moments.
-Temple of Perdition (France)
Cultura Tres displays rich and amazingly heavy music: an intense trip full of subtle, catchy, haunting atmospheres with a unique guitar sound that could simply become a kind of trademark! Some specialists might always find some more or less obvious influences but I'm sorry I can NOT, I feel this is very, very original music!
