The dialogue that transpires throughout 9 Dead Alive is lively, eloquent, and actively intellectual, but it is also intimate. Between them, Rodrigo y Gabriela engage in musical and even cultural queries, and sometimes — provocatively — leave them wide open. This album evidences an expanded creative reach for the pair, even as it re-engages the sharp edges they displayed on earlier recordings.
Rodrigo y Gabriela: 9 Dead Alive review – acoustic guitar virtuosos return to furious flamenco and frantic riffs The opening riffs on The Soundmaker are a reminder that the virtuoso acoustic guitarists started out playing heavy metal back in Mexico City before moving to Ireland as buskers, and the album is more direct than some of their earlier work, with the guitars driven on by insistent percussion
Rodrigo takes the lead guitar role, gripping a plectrum to play riffs, lightning palm-muted lines, and melodic solos. (On “Torito” he even plays slide—imagine Elmore James over Phrygian power chords.) By blending Spanish, classical, blues, metal—even Celtic—sounds, Rod and Gab celebrate the 6-string’s history with their spirited music.
