Sodom, Red Front, Machinage in São Paulo

With their last visit in 2008, the German guys from SODOM came back to Brazil for the “In War and Pieces” album tour, which is also considered as their 30th anniversary commemoration. To kick off the party we had 2 great Brazilian metal bands, named Machinage and Red Front, which brought more Thrash for this special date.

The responsibility meant a really good performance that made the crowd crazy during their presentation. During the sing “Next Victim” Antonio Araújo, guitars at Korzus, was invited to play with them. As stated, their presentation was amazing but too short – only 30 minutes.

Next in line were the angry guys of Red Front. They were finalists at last year Brazilian’s Wacken Metal Battle, so people couldn’t expect less than a massacre on stage. They play a really strong and fast Thrash Metal, aggressive to the ears. They had a comic moment, where they asked the crowd to help ’em destroy a “emo” doll while playing the song “Killer“, sounds fair? After the shows we could notice some doll’s parts spread all over the floor: SUCCESS!

Why not? By the end of those 2 great bands, we were ready for the headliner.

Last, but not least, SODOM!!! Their Heavy Metal was older than most of the guys who came to watch the show, showing that the old man are still rocking. With the songs that spead over the years, they played the classics and some songs from their last album, “In War and Pieces“. “Ok, but this CD is from 2010” you may say, but they didn’t come ever since, so you can consider as part of their tour. Well, who cares?? Let’s THRASH!

Among with their classic tunes, they’ve also played two cover songs: “Surfin’ Bird” from Trashman, as seen on “M-16“ album, and “Iron Fist” from Motörhead from their 1987 “Persecution Mania” album. By the end of the event you can only see the happy faces of those who drink the pure Thrash Metal. The only bad part was the length of the show, it didn’t covered all songs they are playing on the tour. But it worth!
