This band’s name got me hooked from the very first time I saw it. That it almost twisted my tongue when I tried to say it is another story. I hope that the music will hook me the way the name did. I have my suspicions as to what style of metal I can expect. This is a compilation of this Brazilian bands two albums from 2009 and 2013. I love old Brazilian metal, from the 80s and 90s but I am not that up to speed on more modern Brazilian metal. So it is cool to get the chance to hear this. Musically we are dealing with death metal of a very American origin. This is much more east coast than it is west coast in style. It has that chugga chugga riffing that many 90s US death metal bands had. It is also semi technical. So if you don’t like death metal that seem to go around in circles this is not for you. If you don’t mind numerous tempo changes and tech tech and some more tech then this is well worth checking out. Anders Ekdahl
