A little tribute to the Brazilian/Portuguese metal scene

When you think of music from Brazil or Portugal the last thing to come to your mind is heavy music and no wonder. For all these years I've heard of only two well-known bands to come from the countries of bossa nova and fado. More of an irony is the mere fact that despite being in the big family of heavy music they certainly sound different. Sepultura is probably the biggest trash import from Latin America at all and Moonspell is perhaps the best Portuguese metal export. I am not really digging their music, well, I used to like the Brazilians a bit, but that was a long time ago, having in mind that I even didn't consider for a second going to their gig in Sofia. Anyway this is more of a post-tribute to the Brazilian/Portuguese metal scene and two fine examples of it.
