Style: Black, death, thrash metal
5th full-length studio album. APOKALYPTIC RAIDS is a black metal band from Rio de Janeiro. Their style is raw, first wave black metal reminiscent of early Bathory, Hellhammer, and Venom. They formed in 1998 under the name APOCALYPTIC RAIDS In May 2018 they released “The Pentagram” with limited distribution. In October this year it will be available globally through Hell’s Headbangers.
The Pentagram is a solid offering from our metal brethren in Brazil. Who would have thought that Black Metal would thrive in the home of the Samba and the Bossa Nova? So the next time you head to Rio for some sun and Carnival, don’t forget to pack some corpse paint and catch a show or two of hellish black metal.
Recommended for fans of Bathory, Hellhammer, Venom.
