Everything is a bad quality farce, but Ácido clears the path screaming, “Always Heavy Metal!” Ride Into Glory has the pleasure of interviewing two of the pioneer Metal bands from Latin America; Uruguay’s Ácido and Honduras’s Khaos. The bands may not be well known to those outside of the local scene or to those but the most die-hard Heavy Metal Hunters, but we hope this interview gives them more international attention.
