DOWNLOAD: Rodrigo y Gabriela - Orion (Metallica cover) (MP3)
(more & better @ mySpace)

Rodrigo and Gabriela

Their press releases read: "Rodrigo (Sanchez) and Gabriela (Quintero) are two fast-fingered, Dublin-based, Mexicans with a unique sound created on acoustic guitars......Rod and Gab are two lifelong heavy metal fanatic Mexicans living in Dublin, Ireland, playing hispano and latin influenced acoustic guitars that come on with the rush of a full rock band, drum kit and all, -- beat both the Arctic Monkeys AND Johnny Cash to number one in the Irish charts."

They played Joe's Pub on August 7th. (I threw a small mention of it in a Sirius playlist). They're back in NYC for a show at SOB's on September 26th. I haven't seen them yet, but people say live is where they really shine. All tour dates below...

Honestly, their last show was one of the absolute best things I've seen this year; DO NOT MISS if you have opportunity.

They came to my uni in Dublin last spring. And it was amazing.

You are both great guitarist.(I love the sound of the acoustic guitar). I love your upbeat spanish sound. Your cd is great and I know seeing you both live would be fantastic, especially you Gabriel, I love your strumming style! I saw you both for the first time on David Letterman. Please do a show in Birmingham,Alabama
(preferably at the concert hall , not the civic center where the acoustics are horrible). I am spreading the word to my family and friends about your music.
I like metal music like you both do, and I think you bring a fresh sound to the metal music sound that we all can appreciate. Great luck to you both.
