Discography

Drowning Lies

Riccardo Linassi

Drowning Lies, the second solo album by drummer Riccardo Linassi, released in 2011, is an incursion into hard rock.
The compositions still keep a clear metal influence, both in melodies and in lyrics, but hard rock sets the tone from the first track, entitled "Circus of Life".
In addition to the drums, Linassi shows he is versatile in the main vocals of the excellent "1.2.2.8".

Listen

Earthcode

Seawalker

Earthcode, is an independent CD with diverse themes approaches, with 8 tracks counting with one instrumental. Ricardo Linassi, the band's first drummer, co-authored with Filipe Duarte two tracks on the album.
The work features a powerful Heavy Metal, with emphasis on great guitars riffs, a hyper-powerful bass and the drums, that has an intense footprint.

Listen

Wonderlostland

Riccardo Linassi

Wonderlostland, the drumer Ricardo Linassi's personal Project.
The theme covered is the trivialization of love in the present day, with 12 tracks, in which, besides the special participations, the fans will be able to check out a little more of the composer and be surprised with the singer Ricardo Linassi.

Listen

My Mirror (Ep)

Seawalker

EP which has three songs, is a teaser for the long awaited official album, "Earthcode".

Listen

Face to Face

Escarpus

A beautiful "unofficial" album, with mixtures of heavy and thrash metal, often in a medium "new metal" mood.
With a very cohesive and heavy sound, powerful riffs and outstanding chorus, make this a work of impeccable sound quality.

Listen

Fight (Ep)

Dinnamarque

Wandering between Prog Metal and Melodic, the band from Minas Gerais state Dinnamarque debuts in style!
The CD-Demo "Fight" features four tracks very well composed and should satisfy those who enjoy names like Symphony X, Treasure Land, Centaur, Ivanhoe and Tunnelvision ...

Listen

Cara a Cara

Superbox

Our record touches on various aspects of pop and rock and can be heard both by the new generation and by previous generations, our parents and even grandmothers.

Labels mean preconceptions, and that's all we do not want our audience to have from our work.

Listen

The Brave and the Bold (Ep)

Brave

The title track shows the consistency and the good taste of the quintet, starting as a ballad and developing with a lot of "feeling".
"Be" closes the work in a more energetic way, returning the good old Heavy Metal of Bave that, throughout the material, stands out mainly by the technique and variation in right doses.

Listen

The Call of Peace (Ep)

Ata D'arc

As far as I can remember, most of the albums that came to my hands from the land of samba were at least good.
"Call of Peace" is not only good. It is excellent! It made me wonder if we should stop looking for good artists in traditional Metal countries and start taking a look at the other corners of the world.

Listen
  • Simple, straightforward, intuitive! With one of the most self-explanatory names in rock history, this is what you can expect from "Direct". Formed in 2014, the band is the result of a union not only interesting, but flammable!
