By now, metal from Brazil is not very surprising to many. Azorrague, translating to whip/scourge/lash/punishment, is the latest Brazilian band to catch my attention and one of several from the city of Curitiba. Bringing their own combination of death metal and thrash, Azorrague have unleashed their second full length album Bringer of Terror.
If you’re looking for metal in Brazil, Curitiba certainly seems to be a good place to start. Bands like Efrata, Hawthorn, Maestah, and Doomsday Hymn all come to mind when that city is named and now add Azorrague to that list. From information I could find, Azorrague started back in 2007, and has two previous releases, the ep Lies Empire in 2008 and the full length Die With Us in 2011. For Bringer of Terror, the band recorded at Silent Music Studio and enlisted Karim Serri (Doomsday Hymn, Maestah and others) for production, mixing, and mastering.
