RATOS DE PORAO: Guerra Civil Canibal: CD

More loud‘n’fast hardcore from this long running Brazilian band. They’ve picked up a slight tinge of metal over the course of the last 15-plus years, but the songs go by in such a blur that you barely notice. As with damn near anything else this band has put out, this is guaranteed to peel pieces off of your face at first listen if you’re not careful to make sure it’s not too loud. Purty cover with a guy eating another guy’s leg, too.
