Mauricio Terracina is the composer, singer, and producer for the Volture. He got his start on the streets of Monterrey, one of the most dangerous cities in Northern Mexico. In Terracina’s younger years he played bass for the influential psych-rock band Zurdok. For the Volture, he continues his investigation into the aesthetics of classic rock, albeit with a stress on the dark and aggressive sides of mysticism and the occult.
We filmed the Volture at Juarez 130, one of the last bastions for live music in the city. The anxious crowd struggled through the strict security measures enforced by the local authorities. Despite the unwelcome spot check, the venue was packed as Terracina blew out his amps for an audience in need of a dose of heavy rock.
In the last three years there's been some speculation that the level of violence in Northern Mexico might impede future artistic output. Despite this climate of anxiety, the Volture remains a source of inspiration, emerging as one of Mexico’s most pure and honest heavy rock bands.
