Ratos De Porao Carniceria Tropical

This longest standing Brazilian extreme music band is back, not with a half-assed, limp-wristed effort, but with an absolutely barn-burning, kill-everyone-who-owes-you-money offering of hardcore aggression. Even though the band has stalled for most of the ‘90s, something has egged them on to create this snarling animal of an album. Carniceria Tropical is complete with awesome sound, fist pumping energy and a nod to not only the NYC hardcore scene, but the rocket fuel powered Finn Core of the ‘80s and early ‘90s, old DRI and modern day metalcore, giving you a decent balance of both a murderous musical assault and enough musical variety to keep you interested.
