After a long time away from the blog, I'm back with a Brazilian classic compilation which describes very well how the Brazilian Hardcore/Punk sounds.
This LP was recorded at the end of 1982 and first released by Estúdios Vermelhos in 1983 followed by Ataque Frontal in 1985 and Indie Records in 1989. Then remastered to CD by Devil Discos. The problem is, with the re-equalizing process the sound changed too much and even worse is that the gaps they put between tracks, where you can not find on the vinyl making this record a non stop gem. I still believe worth to have the CD version, is like you are listen to a different recording, but you'll only notice it if you listen the vinyl version along it.
First we have Ratos de Porão - before João Gordo era - delivering their dirt hardcore with Jão (the only original member till nowadays) on vocals. Some Brazilian Punks believe that was R.D.P.'s best line up.
Cólera is another band that still going on recording and gigging, although they got slightly softer, still doing their catch sing along Punk Rock with great live performance.
Psykóze only register on vinyl is a sick apocalyptic disoriented chaotic Punk with crazy vocals talking about the end of the world, how shit mankind is and so on.
Fogo Cruzado -I always thought that was a great name for a band- means Crossfire and, oh yeah, it sounds like a real crossfire. It's a fucking original band that you wont listen anything like that combining powerful vocals and pounding drums. This is also the only studio register on vinyl although they have a split LP with Olho Seco where live performances are found.
On top you can see the first back cover press which comes with R.D.P's wrong songs printed.
