A change of line-up and the addition of saxophone since their introduction in 2014 finds Jaume Ramón on Bass and Jonás Salvador on Saxophone joining Jonatan, Ginés and Carlos. This caused a slight delay in the release of El Novio de la Muerta, which you will notice the artwork was created in anticipation of a release in December 2015.

Tramuntana, the fourth of the ten tracks on El Novio de la Muerta (available via bandcamp) is a slower pace, though equally scornful than previous material featured and the extension from a quartet to a quintet allows Los Bélmez to expand on the themes of their work, which gives them the room to slow everything down a little and furrow a more melancholic line.

Rather than raw punches Los Bélmez now deliver concealed menacing tones with guitars crawling around each other as bass and percussion set the ominous presence which makes the music even more intriguing.
