Metal or Mariachi? Metalachi Offers Best of Both Worlds

金属乐还是墨西哥街头乐?阿希金属乐队汲取了两者最佳元素

What do you get when you mix the sound of heavy metal rock music with Mexican mariachi music?

把重金属摇滚乐和墨西哥街头乐混合在一起,你会得到什么?

The answer is Metalachi.

答案就是阿希金属乐队。

Metalachi's members call themselves the first and only heavy metal mariachi band. They mix the traditional mariachi sound from Mexico with modern Heavy metal.

阿希金属乐队的成员自称是第一支也是唯一一支重金属街头乐队。他们把传统的墨西哥街头音乐和现代重金属音乐融合在一起。

The group performs songs like "We're Not Gonna Take It" by the band Twisted Sister and "Rock and Roll All Nite" by KISS in their one of a kind style.

这支乐队以他们特有的风格演绎的歌曲包括扭曲姐妹乐队的《我们不会接受的》和基斯乐队的《摇滚之夜》。

I think we've transformed the music enough to say that we actually came up with our own genre, said Metalachi's trumpet player, who likes to be called El Cucuy.

“我认为我们已经对音乐进行了足够的改造,可以说,我们实际上创造出了我们自己的风格,”阿希金属乐队的小号演奏者说道。他喜欢被人们称为埃尔·库库伊。

He spoke to the Reuters news agency at one of the band's recent shows, in Los Angeles, California.

乐队最近在加州洛杉矶进行了一场演出,当时他接受了路透社的采访。

He added, "There's some people that consider either mariachi music or metal music almost like a religion, but most of the time, people love what we do."

他补充说道,“有些人认为墨西哥街头乐或金属乐几乎就像宗教,但大多数时候,人们喜欢我们的音乐。”

The band's members keep their true identities secret. But all of them are from the Los Angeles area. They have been playing together for about eight years.

乐队成员对自己的真实身份保密。但他们都来自洛杉矶地区。他们一起做音乐已经有大约八年了。

The five members of Metalachi are classically trained mariachi musicians. They play in a traditional mariachi setup with a singer and four musical instruments: trumpet, violin, guitar and a guitarron, or bass guitar. They do not have a drummer setting the beat, which is usually an important part of heavy metal music.

阿希金属乐队的五名成员是受过正规训练的墨西哥街头音乐家。他们以传统的墨西哥街头乐的形式演奏,配有一名歌手和四种乐器:小号、小提琴、吉他和倍低音吉他或贝斯。他们没有鼓手为他们打拍子,而鼓手通常是重金属音乐的重要组成部分。

Guitarist Paco Halen says the guitarron and the guitar provide most of the sound that a drum set would.

吉他手帕科·哈伦表示,倍低音吉他和吉他提供了架子鼓会发出的大部分声音。

The usual lead guitar parts and solos are provided by Kyla Vera, who plays the electric violin. She is the only woman in the band. She says people who enjoy Heavy metal have grown to like mariachi after seeing Metalachi perform.

通常,主要的吉他部分和独奏由凯拉·维拉完成,她会拉电子小提琴。她是乐队里唯一的女性。她表示,在看完阿希金属乐队的表演后,喜欢重金属乐的人已经喜欢上墨西哥街头乐了。

Everyone seems to have a really good time, she noted. "Even if they weren't into one or other of the genres, most of the time this kind of bridges the gap for them."

“每个人似乎都玩得很开心,”她指出。“即使他们不喜欢其中的一种风格,但大多数时候,这是他们之间的桥梁。”

Metalachi is currently performing in the western United States. In 2019, the group plans to perform on the high seas on two music cruises.

阿希金属乐队目前正在美国西部演出。2019年,该乐队计划在公海上乘两艘音乐邮轮进行演出。
