Brazilian crossover thrash metal / hardcore punk legends Ratos de Porão return with their first full-length in eight years, Século Sinistro (“Sinister Century”) on Alternative Tentacles Records!  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 Porão’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.  Fans can expect a clutch of brand new classics off Século Sinistro to be added to the band’s regular rotation—tracks like “Viciado Digital,” which talks about the modern world’s internet addiction and the overexposure of social networks, and “Grande Bosta” (“Total Shit”), which the band likes to describe as their “Cup Song” and captures the negative feelings in Brazil toward the World Cup celebrations. Written over the course of several months and recorded completely in analog in São Paolo at Mob Family Studios, Século Sinistro sounds incredible. Underlying the audio assault of vocalist João Gordo, each instrument makes its presence clearly known, from the intensity of founding member Jão’s guitar work and the rolling thunder of bassist Juninho to the non-stop attack of Boka’s drumming. Only a band of this caliber possesses the rare chemistry and technical proficiency to live up to the standard of Brazilian...

"Man, the enemy of men!!! White caucasian cancer corroding life mercilessly." These sweet words open RATOS DE PORAO's new album, Homem Inimigo do Homem, their first release since Onisciente Coletivo (Virus 265) in 2003. This album marks the band's 25th anniversary making them one of the oldest, continually active, and still one of the most intense bands in hardcore. Mixing riffs inspired by thrash metal with the most furious elements of the punk from the last 30 years, Homem Inimigo do Homem is simultaneously a return to their mid '80s sound and an antidote to the extinct trends RDP survived over the years. The verbal machinegun that is so peculiar to RATOS DE PORAO is a form of "Punk Journalism," spotlighting topics such as corruption and sex scandals in the Catholic Church, the still-existing problem of slavery in the Brazilian countryside, and the latest wave of commercial pop punk/emo frauds. Engineer Bernardo Pacheco and producer Daniel Ganjaman, who works with some of Brazil's biggest names in hip hop and rock, captures RDP's intentions, and gives Homem Inimigo do Homem a straight-ahead, organic sound that translates the '80s idiom into the modern age. In a country where nothing is ever certain, one can be sure that 25 years from now, RATOS DE PORAO will still be standing strong, dirtier and more aggressive than ever. For a band that has survived drugs, violence, trends and even morbid obesity, another quarter of a century will be a piece of cake.

***The latest from long-running Brazilian hardcore powerhouse RATOS DE PORAO (BASEMENT RATS), and the band's most politicized release to date. Fourteen tracks of old-school 1980s-styled HC, blazing metal, thrash, and insane guitar riffage produced by ALEX NEWPORT (Nailbomb, At The Drive-In, Samiam, Fudge Tunnel, The Pattern).

***The third U.S. release from these heavy Brazilian monsters (10 albums released there) gets you more blazing hardcore crust, vicious metal and '90s punk rock. Eight politically volatile and mad-as-hell cuts including covers of SEPULTURA's "Biotech Is Godzilla" and HALF JAPANESE's "Fire To Burn." Crucial, brutal, and totally RATOS.
