Brazilian psych rockers Deafkids aren't afraid to get nasty. On Metaprogramação, their third album, is built on the polyrhythms associated with their continent, while over the top they flail through heavy guitar riffs and cough and splutter like someone who's swallowed a fly. It's aggressive and intense and well worth giving yourself over to. On Neurot.

Deafkids are a Sao Paulo-based noise rock band that create sonic weaponry; it’s the classic punk equivalent of Perc. ‘Pacto De Mascaras’ in particular is crying out for a brutal techno remix. There are tribal-drum beats, distortion pushed to the point of incomprehension, and bizarre robot voices. Tracks segue into each other to create, so rather than twelve distinct songs, the album is like one metallic, monolithic structure. I love how the band have allowed the electronic, Merzbow-y elements to often take centre stage. ‘Estimulos Alucinatorios Verbauditivos’ is similar to something of Mouse on Mars’ righteous and superb album Varchaz and ‘Virus Da Imagem Do Ser’ opens with a hypnotic and beautiful reconstruction of guitar feedback. It’s a magisterial work that reinforces how important it is to look beyond the UK and America in the pursuit of the most vital sounds.
