VELHO - DECREPITUDE & SABEDORIA
My first contact with Velho was by Raphael (ex bass player) and he sent me the songs so I could hear (in 2009 more precisely). When I heard the songs I liked it because it was something totally raw and aggressive, which made me remember the old hordes like, Venom, Hellhammer/Celtic Frost, Bathory and also the Brazilian band called Dorsal Atlântica. Soon after they released "Vida Longa Ao Primitivo", this EP has the same characteristics mentioned above and Velho had great public acceptance in the Brazilian underground. In 2015 the band released their first album called "Decrepitude & Sabedoria", in which they follow in the path of darkness in the most cruel and hateful way possible and this is explicit in the eight tracks that make up this malignant artifact. On the track "Satã, Apareça!", some special guests on vocals as R. Inkubus (Embalsamado, Hellkommander, Imperador Belial and Into The Cave), Jana Lemos (Silentio Mortis and Tyranno) e Victor (Whipstryker, Farscape, Atomic Roar and Kuld). But for me the highlight is "Sob o Maldito Verão do Sul" because someone had to do a song reporting this torment. Regarding the cover art, I don't know the author's name, but this art is as misanthropic as the first cover art made for the EP (the corpse has decomposed). Very good! You should listen to it now!
