J is for Jackdevil

Sepultura is perhaps Brazil's most famous metal export (even though I only recently discovered this), but the largest country in South America, this Portuguese speaking island in a Spanish speaking ocean, produces more than its fair share of metal bands: for example Jackdevil who hail from Sao Luis.

This thrash metal group sings about satanism and evil stuff generally, so consequently they are not on my Christmas card list. Nevertheless, musically they are pretty good. 

Formed in 2010, their latest release is called Evil Strikes Again (2015) This track is from their debut full length album Unholy Sacrifice: Under Metal Command.

    1. Thanks Geraint. It's labour of love. You're a blogger, you knw what it's like...most of the time we do it amuse ourselves. If others jump on board and like what we do, all the better.

  2. Thrash is what gives metal a bad name.

    1. Thrash is the deeper end of the pool, and not for the faint-hearted. I don't really like these guys, but there are some terrific thrash bands around like Crash (day 3 of the challenge), and of course the modern masters of metal, Metallica, began as a pure thrash band.

  3. Wow, that picture's pretty scary - and so is their music if that track's anything to go by! Nice one Mr Cairns.

    Another day in Amble Bay!

    1. Probably too much, even for Arthur with his dodgy hearing. Metal gets heavier than thrash, much heavier. Stay tuned.
