Hocico logo.png


Electro, Aggrotech and Industrial inspired duo, with a bit of a Gothic edge, formed out of Mexico in 1993 by Erk Aicrag (Erik Garcia), who sings the lyrics and vocals, and Racso Agroyam (Oscar Mayorga), who does programming, but both cousins had been experimenting with Electronic Dance Music, plus mixing Industrial and Electronic Body Music, since they were fifteen years old.

Their name is pronounced "Osziko"

Given the influence of varying currents of electronic music (mainly Skinny Puppy) they began their journey in 1989 in a project called "Niñera Degenerada". Their lyrics are both in Spanish as well as English.

The Spanish word hocico means snout, and is used in Mexico as a disrespectful way to describe someone's comments coming out of their mouth.

Agroyam has a side project called Dulce Liquido, while Aicrag has one called Rabia Sorda.
