about

Cortez emerged from a telluric womb in Switzerland in 2001 as an unusual power-trio: drum, guitar, singer. They came searching for sounds, and charismatically crying a huge, dense and corrosive one themselves.
Astonishing the audience’s mind by its intense and incandescent charisma on stage, the resulting display is pure passion, melancholy, and fundamentally human – perhaps all too human – emotion.
Their raw ingredients include musical materials from post-hardcore, noise, and metal. However, they are not bound by conventional genres. They interpret, blend and reinterpret musical concepts to form their own unique sound.
Cortez has toured Europe and Russia with many great bands, including THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, ISIS, UNSANE, JESU, GOJIRA, BURST, THE OCEAN, KEN MODE... Among others.
