Paraguayan thrash metal band keeps it real with native tongue

Kuazar were the first thrash metal band in Paraguay to sing in Guarani, which, along with Spanish, is their country's official language.

According to band members, the strength of their native tongue matches perfectly the content of their lyrics and their hard rock ethos.
