International Press quotes about "El Mal del Bien"

Doommantia.com (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 ….

BeardRock.com (UK)
“Cultura Tres manage to strike a raw nerve that most new UK and US bands don't quite hit.”

TheSleepingShaman.com (UK)
“With this album under their belts it will only be a matter of time before Cultura Tres are huge.”

MetalDisciple.com (USA)
“I feel blind-sided by how magnificent this album sounds.”

Orlandooom.com (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.

Stonerrock.hu (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.

Stonerobixxx.blogspot.com (Belgium)
Furious South American sludge/ doom metal: 'El Mal del Bien' is a really dynamic, non-linear trip in the genre.

PuroRuido.blogspot.com (Argentina)
One of the most interesting sludge/doom bands these days, hails from Venezuela.

-The Soda Shop (USA)
Get this sludgey good album now!

ZannMusic.com.ar (Argentina)
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!

Kill, your god is waiting
Die, in our war
Make us proud of you, my son

Track Name: Purified
-- Purified --

Tell me, what’s your favorite lie?
Tell me, what you failed to hide
You seem to forget that I know you well
Don’t preach from a book that I wrote myself
I know what you know

So tell me what’s your alibi
Tell me who’s to blame this time?
You seem to forget how it was
I wonder if pain can remind you
You seem to forget that I know you well
Don’t preach from a book that I wrote myself
I know what you know

So tell me
Is the rope too tight?

Your sins are laying on my floor
You’re purified
Your sins are laying on my floor
You’re purified
Track Name: Los Muertos de mi Color
- instrumental -
Track Name: El Sur de la Fe
-- El Sur de la Fe --

The blessings of crisis
the preachers for sale
the trail of the money
el sur de la fe

the lies of a leader
the lies of a book
the price of salvation
el sur de la fe

el sur de la fe…

the church of finances
the credit of God
la deuda del mundo
el sur de la fe
Track Name: No es mi Verdad
-- No es mi verdad --

La sangre sin vicios
Retorna a derramarse
Por el libro
Donde basas tu verdad

No es mi verdad

La sangre de infancia
Manchada por los vicios
Escondidos en tu paz
Sin confesar

No es mi verdad
Track Name: The Grace
-- The Grace --

Did you bless the lie?
Did you embrace
the cross of hate?

Did you buy on time?
A new born knows
who leads the way
to the grace
our disgrace
Did you cross the line?
Did you forget
your common sense?

Are you ready now?
It's time to show
the real way
to the grace
our disgrace
Track Name: El Mal del Bien
El Mal del Bien
Track Name: Voices
-- Voices --

The dance has begun
don't you see?
Don't you see me dancing in the flames

Dancing demons
from your past
don't you hear them laughing
inside your head?

Your praying won't help…
Your praying won't help.

We're here cause you made us
We're here cause you missed us
We're here cause you need us
We're here cause we're just like you

Don't try to think you'll get away
come and dance with us it's time to play
this whole thing is a part of you
we're the demons dancing inside your head

Your praying won't help…
Your praying won't help

We're the voices you forgot

and we're here cause you made us
we're here cause you missed us
we're here cause you need us
we're here cause we're just like you:
we're cursed like you

Your praying won't help
Track Name: Tres Seis Diez Dos
-- Tres Seis Diez Dos --

No se cansa la voz
que martilla en mi paciencia
que siembra en mi dolor

No se cansa la voz
hoy se confunde
con la voz de mi interior

Hoy no quiero olvidar
hoy no quiero callar
hoy no es día para perdonar

Tres seis diez dos...
Tres seis diez dos…

Ya no escucho la voz
ya no decora mis creencias
y miente en mi versión

La línea se cruzo
todo en el nombre
de mi vieja religión…

Y no quiero olvidar
y no quiero callar
hoy no es día para perdonar

tres seis diez dos...
tres seis diez dos…
dos, dos ….
Track Name: Your Call
-- Your Call --

I've been
to the place where it all begun
.. and I'm still there..

I've seen ..
I've seen it all

I've seen this time
all the drawings on the floor

I heard, at last,
your call,
your call.

I counted six
contradictions in your plan

I heard, and ignored,
your call,
your call.

Viviendo en tu visión,
encontre tu verdad,
la estoy asfixiando.

Dentro de tu visión
soy dueño de tu paz
la estoy desangrando.

Dentro de tu visión
te estoy esperando
