Huelga

Huelga

Self-released

Album Review By Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

Boston Rock Radio


 

Sometimes you really don't need vocals to give voice to feelings. Huelga (Spanish for “strike”) is a one man instrumental metal project from out of Texas. It is the project of jazz instrumentalist Michael Fonseca. He cites his influences as Charles Ives, Frank Zappa and Elliot Carter. Currently he is a community college music instructor and he has studied jazz drums at the University of Texas. He recorded all instruments on this self-titled album. I'll do a little song by song review.

 

“The Very Marrow of Our Bones”

 As this songs twists and churns around you, you have some trashy hints. It is immediately enthralling and mesmerizing and he understands the power and weight of layering and composing.

 

“Chinga del Perro”

This track sounds angry, furious and like you are a loose cog in a machine spinning out of control.

 

“No Word for Blues Part I and II”

This is simply schizophrenic riffing with a nice bit of distortion to capture the aggressive feeling.

 

With the interplay of the guitar riff, the bassline and the drums allows every track and every section of this album to stand out as their own unique little mini-composition, and nearly every single one of them is memorable. That core sound, of the sometimes-heavy but always emotionally resonant instrumental rock/metal, is enhanced.
