Video: Máscaras – “City in Ruins”

Theo’s charging bass line tramples out of the gate, bedding Carlos’ fuzzed out guitar soloing for the opening of “City in Ruins.”


Each new verse seems to bring more intensity as Papi’s drumming fills get more ferocious and Carlos’ guitar playing opens up in a plethora of effects and screeching notes. By the end of the song, the trio is in a dead sprint as each member pounds out notes with a growing intensity. Check it out!
