Battle Of Santiago - Queen & Judgment (Digital)

One of the so-called historical Battles of Santiago that presumably inspired the Toronto-based band’s name was the football match in Chile during the 1962 World Cup between the hosts and a seriously undisciplined Italian team. British referee, Ken Ashton, struggled manfully to maintain order, but the match soon degenerated into chaos. Founder and bass player, Michael Owen, suggests that the name implies “some kind of soundclash, which works for us since the band has both a Latino section and a non-Latino section, and that dynamic can create a really exciting creative tension.”
