Reason for Violence

Rated 1.7/5 (34%) (20 Votes)

Brazil's Thrash Metal scene has always been reason for us caipirinha drinkers to be proud. Being a continental country, we always have a shitload of bands coming out of every corner, and Northeast's region Brutallian continues our legacy of exporting quality Metal to the world. Reason for Violence is the second full-length effort by these dudes and shows the group reaching top form in terms of songwriting, maturity and sheer savagery. Sometimes reminding of Bruce Hall-era Agent Steel with a pinch of the European Thrash vein, songs like "Fear Inside Rage Outside", "Cast In Iron" and "Rear Naked Choke" will blast through your speakers with a lot of power and attitude.

Pablo Barros' vocal style is a cool mix between Alexander Koch (Powergod) and Bruce Hall, and the guitar work is crunchy and heavier than the average South American Thrash pattern, sometimes sounding like a Traditional Metal album on steroids. If you're looking for a virile, no-frills effort with a lot of bang, Brutallian will give you a healthy dose of it with a South American flavor. It's not as brutal as the band and album names suggest, but it's more than enough to scare that country music-loving neighbor of yours.
