Metalachi's Maximilian Sanchez on Embracing Metal's "Cocaine Insane Egotistical Over-The-Top Drugs and Alcohol and Sex Image"

Those able to picture Axl Rose adorned in an ornate, oversized sombrero, or a bandanna-wearing Bret Michaels strumming a fat guitarrón, or Motley Crue wearing rivet-edged chaps, vests and pointy toed boots among the eyeliner, then it's also possible envision the spectacle that is Metalachi.

Made up of five half-brothers, Metalachi combines the force and at times over-the-top exuberance of heavy metal with the stoic and storied history and tradition of Mexican mariachi music.
