      THE STORY OF METALACHIOn a hot summer night in Veracruz Mexico circa 1982,Consuela Espinoza stumbled out of her dilapidatedshanty and into Rock N Roll history. What began as aninnocent night of snorting horse tranquilzers in a hotelroom with seven members of the village jai alai teamwent on to produce the greatest metal band to ever live.Unhampered by a steady regime of tequila and illadvised sumo lessons, nine months later five bastardchildren where born. Unable to care for her hungryoffspring and concerned that motherhood wouldseriously interfere with her Tuesday night Karaokeleague, Consuela hastily packed the babies into thesaddlebags of a burro and sent her children off toAmerica in search of a better life. Against all odds, 14years later, and nearly dead from dehydration, the burroknelt down to drink from the stagnant waters of the RioGrande just ouside of Juarez Mexico mere yards fromthe U.S. border. With one fleeting burst of energy thebrothers Espinoza cinco climbed from their leatherrestraints and scampered the vast reaches of the river,collapsing onto the sweet amber hue of American soil. Asif by destiny, lodged in the sand beneath their tannedfaces was a record sleeve upon which were the wordsPARANOID and BLACK SABBATH. For many years tofollow, this definitive black metal album served not onlyas a teacher and a mentor..but also as a friend. Fromthese bleak and humble begins grew the seed that wouldOFFICAL BIOeventually be the band we know today. Often referred toas the greatest heavy metal band to ever live..alwaysreferred to asMETALACHI.
