V/A Sub LP
A good follow-up to the great Grito Suburbano compilation. CÓLERA return with more nifty punk sing-alongs; the other three bands—PSYKOZE, RATOS DE PORÃO, and FOGO CRUZADO—don’t seem quite as distinctive on first listen. For one thing, their basic thrashing power is so weakened by the poorly mixed guitars that it’s really hard to judge their potential power. It’s always better to err on the side of an overly loud guitar mix, but this is still an inspiring effort.
