Thrashing Rage!!! (July.8.2007)

こないだ出たDESTRUCTION'S ENDとのSplit聴いてビックリした人も多いであろう、大注目ブラジリアン・クロスオーバー・スラッシャーの待望の1stアルバム!!! 何を隠そう、これまで全くノーチェックだった私達自身が前作Splitを聴いて一番ビックリしてしまいました。ノスタルジアと言われようが、今最も80'sクロスオーバーを見事に再現してるグレート・バンドの1つと断言しても異論はないでしょう。と言うか完全に全盛期ACCUSEDの再来で最高すぎる!!! ちょうどMassacre Divine発表時に出現してきたDISASTERが「DISCHARGEよりDISCHARGEしてるバンドがいるぞ!!」と話題になったのなら、分裂状態の本家ACCUSEDより断然ACCUSEDらしさを放って輝いているのがこのBANDANOS!! その要因はなんと言ってもブレイニーに良く似たVo.の声によるところなのですが、曲はファニーな要素の無いACCUSEDが一直線に疾走スラッシュしたような感じ。クロスオーバー・ファンのみならず、VIOLATORやETERNAL DEVASTATION等の最近のイキのいい若手ブラジル・スラッシュメタル・ファンにもオススメする痛快スラッシュっぷりです。MUNICIPAL WASTEもウカウカしてられません。全クロスオーバー・スラッシャー絶対必聴!!!!!

Crossover is back for the delight of all thrashers, fans of the style. Sounding like classic eighties crossover bands, Bandanos (scene veterans, having been in bands like: Rot, Point Of No Return, No Violence, Warhate, Questions…) is a perfect fusion between Suicidal Tendencies, D.R.I and The Accused, making an extreme quality sound, proving to be the main exponent of the style in Brazil.


2002 - The band started like a side project of some veterans of Sao Paulo hardcore scene, that wanted to bring the roots of the thrash/crossover bands like Accused, Excel, Suicidal Tendencies, No Mercy, DRI, back to the punk/hardcore and metal scenes.

With this new line-up the band recorded the second demo Justica das Ruas (Street Justice) by Ciero (KRISIUN, SUBTERA, CLAUSTROFOBIA) at Datribo studios and get back to play a lot.
