Calligram’s Ardo Cotones’ Gives a Crash Course within the Brazilian Punk and Metallic Scene


We at MetalSucks love us some worldwide music acts. Any likelihood we get to focus on bands from different elements of the world, we take each time. So once we had the chance to have Calligram drummer Ardo Cotones share among the finest Brazilian bands in that nation’s punk and steel scene, we jumped on the likelihood.

We’d prefer to thank Ardo for taking the time to compile this record. So with out belaboring the topic, right here’s the ten Brazilian punk and steel bands you must hear straight away.


Surra are a closely political crossover band, quick as fuck and mad riffage. They’re a 3 piece and guitarist/vocalist Léo Mesquita delivers extraordinarily quickfire lyrics while taking part in these insane riffs. Their vitality dwell is unbelievable! My favorite album of theirs is 2021’s “Ninho de Rato” because the riffs are darker than common and out of 12 songs, just one is over a minute lengthy.

Sangue de Bode

Sangue de Bode are from a small city in Rio de Janeiro, these guys are the one band from there that performs excessive music they usually arrived to disturb the peace with their chaotic black steel and private lyrics. They don’t comply with any type of black steel rulebook and add a variety of Brazilian steel and punk affect to their sound.

I’d advocate beginning with their 2021 album, “Seja Bem Vindo De Volta Pra Cruz,” and watch their insane movies.


Brazilian grind overlords Facada by no means let their guard down, you’ll be met with sheer brutality each time you press play. From the Northeast of Brazil, a area with a really robust heavy music scene, and 6 albums into their profession, this three-piece creates an enormous wall of sound in unrelenting velocity that has put them among the many finest ever grindcore acts from Brazil. My favorite launch of theirs is 2017, “Nadir.”


Born within the concrete jungle São Paulo in 2016, Vazio has gained immediate recognition within the Brazilian scene and are, in my view, the very best Brazilian black steel band of the final decade. Described as “gasoline for riot” by vocalist Renato Gimenez, their uncooked and atmospheric album, “Eterno Aeon Obscuro,” was featured in lots of 2020 year-end lists.


Staples of recent Brazilian underground music. When you’re listening to Brazilian heavy music and don’t know Desalmado, you’re doing it mistaken! The band began as a grindcore venture and has since included parts of dying steel and post-metal into their sound ensuing of their newest album, “Mass Psychological Devolution” (2021), which is a necessary pay attention.

Take a look at

This duo from São Paulo is extremely fearless in terms of DIY and experimentation. They’re identified for turning up exterior main gigs of their outdated VW van, pulling energy from wherever they will discover close by and taking part in to the viewers queuing exterior the venue. That’s not the one particular factor about this band, their third full size, 2019’s “O Jogo humano” was written with no buildings in thoughts so as to play any of the 54 tracks in any order you want and write your individual grindcore album. Their music relies on grindcore however calling it a grind band can be huge pigeon-holing. They’re breaking limitations in heavy music whether or not anybody likes it or not. I’m right here for it each fuckin’ day.



Fashioned by seasoned musicians within the heavy music scene and right here to smash the patriarchy as soon as and for all, their message is delivered by way of harsh and melodic riffs that maintain you hooked to their quick D-beat neo-crust. Elaine’s vary of screams distinction completely with the guitar melodies making their music an emotionally dense pay attention. Rastilho delivered considered one of my favorite information of final 12 months with “Period dos Extremos.” Completely unmissable!


Initially fashioned in 1999 and coming again in 2020 from a six-year hiatus, this three-piece from São Paulo will take you to the furthest corners of your worst nightmares with their cosmic dying steel. Their new album, wrapped in unsettling, atmospheric melodies and deep, echoing vocals that draw inspiration from the cosmic terror of H.P. Lovecraft, “Obiasot Dwybat Ptnotum,” has shortly grow to be considered one of my favourite albums of 2023.


Old style dying thrash from the deep south Santa Catarina. Lively since 2014 and headed by vocalist Hugo Golon with an influence trio dwell line up, they based mostly their lyrics on traditional 70’s and 80’s horror films. Their 2016 album, “Oãxiac Odèz”, and its catchy riffs will make you headbang involuntarily.

Ratos de Porão

Youthful heavy music followers won’t concentrate on the hardcore punk crossover godfathers. Going robust for over 40 years with no indicators of slowing down, they unfold their brutal mixture of punk and steel riffs whereas criticizing and satirizing these in energy and spiritual fanatics. Ratos de Porão is, after Sepultura, a very powerful Brazilian band.
