Hocico is a Mexican aggrotech band. The band was officially formed in Mexico City, Mexico in 1993 by Erk Aicrag (lyrics & vocals) and Racso Agroyam (programming), but both cousins had been making electronic music since they were fifteen years old. The names are anagrams of the real names Erik Garcia and Oscar Mayorga.
Their music can be described as dark and aggressive electronica or more specifically as aggrotech. The lyrics are commonly in English, however, they are sometimes in Spanish.
Their logo is a six legged spider with an H on its back.
The Spanish word Hocico (pronounced “Oziko”) means snout and is a derogatory term that indicates ugliness (i.e., ugly as a dog’s snout).
Racso Agroyam has a side project called Dulce Liquido.
Erk Aicrag’s solo project is called Rabia Sorda.
