“”Mutante” is the type of high energy heavy madness that you can expect from 8 Kalacas. This song is one of the few fictional stories we bring to our album which describes a man who was once thought dead but comes back through the use of a powerful amulet. He comes back different, with a new hunger for human flesh and human brains. We are very excited to present this music video to the world and hope everyone enjoys it.”Mutante” was the first of 5 videos we made for the “Fronteras” album with our good friend and director Vicente Cordero. We were lucky to be able to work during Covid-19 restrictions and able to safely work with some amazing actors and actresses to make this video possible. The idea was to have us playing in a dark warehouse where a desperate doctor was performing experimental operations on the man she loved to save his life. However, when her experiments work, she quickly realizes that he has become something different. He develops facial and skeletal mutations and is overcome by a supernatural bloodlust. By the end of the video, she is punished for playing God when she is consumed by her own creation.”
»Fronteras« will be available as a CD incl. Bonus DVD (with video clips, band documentary and a live acoustic session), on Vinyl (orange/black colored) and digital.

On 8 KALACAS‘ »Fronteras« imagine a rabid blend between the very early frenzy of SYSTEM OF A DOWN, the heaviness of SLIPKNOT and the explosive energy of SOCIAL DISTORTION in a Mexican setting and multiply it with ten. You might come close to the insane intensity of 8 KALACAS (spoken: Ocho Kalacas). Not so much an ordinary band than it is a tidal wave of bristling energy, hard-hitting music and biting social commentary, the Californian Skacore familia is all set on conquering the world with their stupendous musical exorcism.
