Desalmado Premieres New Song Online

Brazilian grindcore band Desalmado is preparing a new, self-titled album for release on July 31st via Greyhaze Records. Metal Underground.com has obtained the premiere of a new song off of this effort. The song is entitled "Juizo Dos Fracos" and can be heard in the player below.

The new, self-titled album, which is the follow up to the band's "Hereditas" EP (reviewed here), was produced by Jean Dolabella of Sepultura and mastered at West West Side. The album contains 15 tracks total.

Stated Desalmado guitarist Bruno Teixeira on the results of their latest output: "I am very happy with this album. I'm pretty sure that it is more varied than anything we've ever done, with production that has that vibe of old recordings, with a live feel to it."

About this song specifically, Teixeira states: "It is a straightforward one, with some influence of thrash metal and hardcore, but maintaining our identity. We have a special guest on that song; Marcus D'Angelo, a great friend and lead singer of Claustrofobia. From the lyrical perspective it follows the same line of thought of the entire album: an utter criticism of religion, which brainwashes people into blind obedience."

Here's the "Desalmado" track listing:

1. Sem Nome
2. Canibal Social
3. Delirio
4. Cegueira Santa
5. Todos Vao Morrer
6. Juizo Dos Fracos
7. Sofrer, Morrer e Apodrecer
8. Odio Instintivo Contra a Realidade
9. Falso Profeta
10. Herege
11. Ceifador
12. Penitencia e Subversao
13. Suicidio Assistido
14. Anticristo
15. Cozido Para Animais (Japanische Kampfhörspiele cover)

The band recently released a documentary video from their latest European tour, which you can see here.

"Based out of the densely populated city of São Paulo, Brazil, the act now known as Desalmado already made quite a name for themselves throughout South America over recent years under the name El Fuego.

Desalmado Signs To Greyhaze Records

Greyhaze Records has issued the following announcement about inking a deal with Brazil's Desalmado:

"Greyhaze Records is proud to announce the signing of Brazilian grindcore band Desalmado into its roster. The signing involves the worldwide vinyl release of their well-acclaimed debut EP 'Hereditas' as well as the release of a full-length album. The upcoming LP features a guest appearance by Marcus D’Angelo of Claustrofobia. These will be Desalmado’s first releases outside of their home country of Brazil and will take place in the spring and summer, respectively. More news regarding titles, artwork, and track listings will be revealed soon.

"Formed in 2004 under the name of El Fuego, the band has always been very active, playing gigs throughout Sao Paulo and surrounding cities. From its very inception, Desalmado took on a solid approach towards grindcore, but at the same time not being tied to any single musical style. In 2005 the group put out its first demo which led to the release of its 2006 self-titled debut album. Despite being a simple production, the album was very well received by fans in the local scene and beyond. Only 200 copies were made and the album is currently out of print. In 2008 Desalmado released its highly anticipated ‘Hereditas,’ EP which was recorded by the current lineup.

"Desalmado is now putting the finishing touches on their upcoming full length album. There are also plans for solid touring in Brazil, USA, and Europe."

Says guitarist Bruno Leandro: “We’re totally stoked with our partnership with Greyhaze. Above all, we wanted to work with a label that respected our music and opinions. We achieved that with Greyhaze and are working together on our first official release.”
