Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. 2014 release, the first album in eight years from the Brazilian Thrash Metal/Hardcore Punk legends. This incredible album sums up everything great about their astonishing 33-year career - yet they still sound like a hungry young band that comes out swinging, delivering a raw and intense musical snarl. Ratos de Porao's Portuguese lyrics (with English translation in the Alternative Tentacles version) focus on day-to-day life in Brazil, spotlighting political and social issues as only they can. The songs present a positive outlook and hope of a better future, tempered with dark humor. Underlying the audio assault of vocalist Joao Gordo, each instrument makes it's presence clearly known, from the intensity of founding member Jao's.
