São Paulo's BANDANOS harness the best elements of later SUICIDAL and mid-80s DRI while avoiding the cheese factor that can so easily turn listeners away from those early crossover bands (unless, perhaps, the listener has the benefit of age and/or context). Vocals are spewed with an intensity that suits the musical assault - even when these kids "slow down" for a mosh part, their game is beyond fierce and there is not even a hint of party in this thrash. Not to say that BANDANOS take themselves too seriously, but simply that their attack doesn't leave any room for shenanigans. No frills, and no filler, this 2005 cassette just rips.
