I have been beating about the bush for quite some time now with this album called “Bloody Vengeance” from VULCANO. The album is the first studio long player of Brazil’s first and long time leading Black/Thrash Metal brigade. Ok, maybe long player might seem a bit exaggerated considering the playing time, but it does not need more time to make your ears bleed.
The bludgeon jumps eight times out of the bag to teach you joy and fear at the same time, one is definitely smitten with amazement. Fans of Norwegian true Black Metal who are looking for the roots of their favorites will be optimally pleased. VULCANO are delivering primitive banging with a horrible sound that was usually the case in Brazil for a long time. But the album’s has its charm as well. I don’t know why but somehow I like this art of barbaric tunes. And especially “the dilettantism” is what flows into me like a freshly tapped beer. Withal VULCANO are not only banging like crazy but by means of diverse slower parts they are bringing some variety into the picture (as most Thrashers do).
Maybe it is this eerie lust for the extreme, the unruly fury and freshness that fascinates me at this band. Cause what misses on the technical level is filled by wild and brutal honesty. Similarities to the early MESSIAH, BULLDOZER or even PROTECTOR cannot be denied. If you are interested in this CD pay a visit to Pegasus Records. (Online October 21, 2006)
