Santamuerte - Music from the dead
"Santamuerte is a band that defies the fear of death and pays tribute to a deity with the name and attitude of a saint and the appearance of a skull"
Santamuerte is an Ecuadorian Punk Blues band founded in 2013. Based in Germany, they stand out for their music that addresses life and death from a natural perspective, with lyrics covering topics such as death, luck, the devil and heartbreak.
Their style fuses blues, punk, grunge, psychobilly and stoner rock, influenced by artists such as Robert Johnson, Nirvana and Queens of the Stone Age. In 2015, they released their debut album "Letras de mi Muerte", which gained recognition being album of the week on Radio 3 in Spain.
They have opened for Michael Graves of the Misfits, signed with the music agency Cezamé in 2018 and their music has been used in films and TV shows. They have participated in festivals such as the Trash Blues Festival and Umsonst und Draussen in Germany.
