Sorry for being off topic, but I.N. fuckin' R.I. is the (un)godliest thing that Brazilian metal ever offered to this world. All the rest are simply a class lower.

Dead-on. I.N.R.I. is one of the top-10 greatest Rock'n'Roll albums ever recorded. Period.

...but to adress the topic in question: Brazilian classic HM have never become a personal fave. Plenty of solid, standard Metal, but few (if any) albums came close to the best European or American releases of the time imo. ALTA TENSAO's "Portal do Inferno" and HARPPIA's "A Ferro e Fogo" would be among the better ones. Some more obscure faves would be FIREBOX - "Out of control" LP (US Power/Heavy meets Motörhead) and SADOM - "Love and Death" LP (original & mysterious yet raw and almost "droneish" Metal) and of course CALVARIO.

Dan: Rock 'n' Roll? :D

I must admit that I never really got into Brazilian thrash scene ... perhaps my favorite (aside from a certain ex-over-the-top-band) would be the 2nd Taurus, Phantasmagoria's The Mist, or the reunited Executer.

I like the Excalibur demo a lot! It's strange Heavy Metal, never heard anything like that. Reggae Heavy Metal? A bit amateurish though...

OFF TOPIC: Sounds like that horrible English band "Raggadeth" -anyone remember those tossers from the early 90's ...one of the side effects of that appalling and thankfully short lived "funk metal" explosion of the same time - the one and only good thing the seattle/ grunge craze achieved was to stop that dead in its tracks.... :lol:

ON TOPIC : Nothing Brazil ever produced can top Sarcofago and Vulcano at their peak.

Vulcano at their peak is unsurpassed even by the mighty Sarcofago IMO. Bloody Vengeance is the soundtrack of Hell.

Not this EXCALIBUR I gather? They were a "pure NWOBHM"-style band as I remember it, but the article does mention a 2nd Brazilian EXCALIBUR from Bela Horizonte. As much as I cringe at the "Reggae-Metal" description I can't help being a wee bit curious. I must be a fuckin' masochist :roll:


More OT:
I have 2 demos with this early 90's UK act called DIE LAUGHING who actually managed to combine Doom, Death & Dub in a suprisingly effective manner.
