Deafkids (BRA) + Terror Defence (NL) + Paranoid State (NL)
Formed in 2010 in the industrial city of Volta Redonda/Rio de Janeiro, Deaf Kids grew from a solo project by guitarist/singer Douglasto to an immensely powerful trio courtesy of Mariano on drums and Marcelo on bass. The band are celebrated for their incredibly exciting mix of hypnotic beats, hardcore noise and psychedelia. Now based in São Paulo, their most recent (7th) album ‘Configuração do Lamento’ was released by Neurot Recordings. As well as the overwhelming “cathartic energy discharge” of their live shows, expect “a legitimate bastard child of the colonizational chaos, both here-and-there, trapped between different, complementary and opposing worldviews, trying to balance this condition on an attempt to capture the intensity of said conditions and expressing it through sonic ways.”
You have been warned.
Brazils DEAFKIDS are one of those bands buoyed by a mystic kind of momentum, a ceaselessness whose source lies in some vital, but unknown spring. Their music is a glorious cacophony, a mixture of pummelling Gnod-esque cataclysms and the traditional sounds of their native Brazil and Latin America; its a brutal blend of hardcore punk, metal, experimental noise, and a pumping rhythmic vein with its roots in African and Indian polyrhythm. (The Quietus)
After years of total silence this legendary VPU (Voorne Putten Underground) band returns for a rare concert. Expect head-shaking noise and an attitude that chews through concrete.
Paranoid State is an intense and gritty post-hardcore band featuring (ex) members of Tense Reaction, Vitamin X, El Camaro and Karel Anker & De Joden.
