Anything I have read about firing squads and "death walls" has used the word "el paredon" regardless of country.

When I was a teenager, on a saturday night I used to hang out at a place called Bellvue in Manchester it was a big entertainment complex and zoological gardens I used to go to watch the speedway team and afterwards go around the showground and there was a side show there called "the wall of death" which featured stunt motorcyclists, el pared de muerto.
