Reliably informed



Released: 15.03.19








I think I can say without too much fear of contradiction that you’ve never heard anything like Deafkids; I know I haven’t. This is a dense, brutal but ultimately uplifting marriage of insistent Brazilian rhythms, industrial/breakcore noise and a kind of psychedelic hardcore. In short, Deafkids aren’t fucking about.

The Sao Paolo trio are three albums into their sci-fi primitivist ritualistic trip, and Metaprogramação is their best yet: totally focussed, a pure distillation of what they’re doing. There’s processed throat singing as an opener, Mente Bicameral sounds like bad-trip Ministry and the seven-minute centrepiece Raiz Negativa is absolutely HUGE, with frenzied drums, chopped up vocals, a killer sampled riff and intensity to spare. Music to soundtrack your next ayahuasca ceremony.
