Dorsal Atlantica  


When the subject of early Brazilian metal bands comes up, Sepultura usually is the first mentioned, as they are arguably the country's most well-known band as well as one of the first. But Dorsal Atlantica deserves mention as well, as they came into being around the same time (the two bands debuting the same year, 1985), and they have been remarkably popular in their home country for many years, though they are less well known in other countries. Style-wise, the band has always been rooted in thrash, in particular a faster, raw form with some punk overtones and lyrics usually based on political or socio-economic themes (for these reasons, they bear a slight similarity to another elder Brazilian band, Overdose). Predictably, the earlier material such as Dividir E Conquistar shows the rougher side of the band, while on later albums such as Musical Guide From Stellium (actually the middle album of a trilogy) the band had refined their style, though aggressive poltical thrash has always been the cornerstone of the group.
