RATOS DE PORAO - Necropolitica (12" Gatefold LP on Black Vinyl)
Brazil | Hardcore/Punk, Thrash/Crossover
Brazil's undisputed thrash-punk masters return with a brand-new studio album. Eight years after the acclaimed Seculo Sinistro (2014), Ratos De Porão are back with another slab of relentless, intense and socially engaged crossover thrash in their unmistakable style, this time with a stronger-than-ever political message reflecting their absolute contempt against the authoritarian government that has plagued Brazil in recent years. Musically, with a career spanning through five decades, Ratos De Porão show no sign of weakening and reconfirm themselves as the absolute champions of South American hardcore. Ten songs full of metal and punk mayhem keeping it fresh and dynamic at the same time, led by Jao's manic riffing and Gordo's massive, vitriolic shouts of rage. With no doubts the world's most famous basement rats have nailed it another time with a devastating album, still sounding exciting and relevant, which is an amazing achievement in punk that most other bands of that age can't claim! Glossy gatefold jacket with 12"x12" booklet.
