best nationwide by Rockdelux magazine, an honor repeated in 2010.
In 2010 they are signed by the label "Limbo Starr" with whom they release the EP "Duat" (Limbo Starr, 2010), voted Best Single of the Year
by magazine Rockdelux. Also in 2010, Henrik Agren joins the group, a keyboardist and guitarist of Swedish origin.
In June 2012 they release the second Cuchillo LP "Encanto" (Limbo Starr, 2012), which is received with great excitement by critics and
audiences. It quickly becomes established at the top of the music press charts. The Primavera Sound festival includes them in its 2012
edition, where they present their new album. Portishead select them to open their concert in Barcelona in the same month of June. In September they play at the Phono Festivalen in Norway with bands like Stealing Sheep or Pional. That was the begining of a tour that brings them through the US West Coast and Mexico before starting the"Encanto" spanish tour in fall.
