2014 release, the first album in eight years from the Brazilian Thrash Metal/Hardcore Punk legends. This incredible album sums up everything great about their astonishing 33-year career - yet they still sound like a hungry young band that comes out swinging, delivering a raw and intense musical snarl. Ratos de Porao's Portuguese lyrics (with English translation in the Alternative Tentacles version) focus on day-to-day life in Brazil, spotlighting political and social issues as only they can. The songs present a positive outlook and hope of a better future, tempered with dark humor. Underlying the audio assault of vocalist Joao Gordo, each instrument makes it's presence clearly known, from the intensity of founding member Jao's guitar work and the rolling thunder of bassist Juninho to the non-stop attack of Boka's drumming. Only a band of this caliber possesses the rare chemistry and technical proficiency to live up to the standard of Brazilian Hardcore legends!
