Deafkids are a band from Brazil that plays a mixture of d beat, raw punk, experimental and avant garde music and this is a review of their 2017 album "Configuracao Do Lamento" which will be released in October by Nuerot Recordings.
Distorted drones along with some underground industrial elements start off the album along with the bass guitars being used as a lead instrument as well as mixing the acvant garde and experimental side in with the heavier sections of the music and after awhile aggressive screams start to make their presence known.
Elements of 80's era noise rock can be heard in the music but done in a more modern fashion while tribal drumming is used briefly and gives the music more of a ritualistic and shamanistic atmosphere and on some tracks the riffs also bring in a small amount of melody along with the energy of d beat and punk rock and the music also adds in the heaviness of extreme metal, as the album progresses elements of harsh noise can be heard and all of the tracks sound very different from each other.
Deafkids plays a musical style that takes d beat, punk, extreme metal, industrial, experimental and avant garde and mixes them together to create something very original, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics are written in Portuguese and cover philosophical themes.
In my opinion Deafkids are a very great sounding mixture of raw punk, d beat, experimental and avant garde music and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this Band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Veia Aberta" "As Mesmas Ferramentas, Os Mesmos Rituais" and "Distopia Permanente". 8 out of 10.
