PCN (band)

PCN (Payasos Come Niñas) is a Mexican metal band formed in 1999 by Xavier "Terry" Terriquez And Pablo Aripez. The style of the band, with growling death metal vocals and clean overtones, goes from death metal to progressive metal, using thrash rhythms, often in the same song. Some time after the band had formed, Alejandro Fabela "Daldo" came in as vocalist.

Around this time, "Taco" became the bass player and soon PCN merged with "Los Restos" with "Achu" on 2nd guitar and "Alain" as lead vocalist. Daldo left the band in 2001 to form tRazGo, where he met Felipe Valdez. In 2003 Felipe left tRazGo as soon as the 2nd album was finished, and Terry Joined the band in his place.

In 2004 Daldo and Terry left the band due to musical differences, but PCN was later reformed with Felipe and Pablo, this time making use of grittier vocals and more guitar-oriented, heavier music. The 2005 release of "Payasos Come Niñas" gave the band a chance to be part of Argentina's and Latin America's biggest metal band A.N.I.M.A.L. on their "Combativo World Tour" and also won them Enredox Magazine's"Independent Metal Album Of The Year" and "Best Metal Song" for "En Busca de Mi" in the same year.

During 2009 the band was writing and recording a new album, due later in the year, but has since disbanded.
