RATOS DE PORAO – Crucificados Pelo Sistema LP

Details: Ratos de Porão, or simply RxDxPx, was formed in 1980, existing in the Brazilian (São Paulo city) punk rock scene (alongside bands such asCólera, Inocentes, Garotos Podres, Lobotomia, Olho Seco etc.). Directly influenced by the UK 82 hardcore bands such as Discharge, G.B.H.,Varukers and swedish and finnish bands such as Anti-Cimex and Kaaos, they started to write songs that criticized Brazilian society, a revolutionary concept at the time. Their sound is regarded as one of rawest of their scene (because other bands such as Cólera and Garotos Podres were more 'punk rock' sounding than 'hardcore').
Their first album was released in 1983 and was titled "
Crucificados pelo sistema". Released on the
Ataque Frontal label, it was one of the fastest hardcore albums to come out of the country, and was soon considered a punk classic worldwide.
