TOSCO releases it's third and most aggressive album to date with some very special guests!

On July 22nd, the Brazilian thrashcore (thrash metal/hardcore/groove metal) band Tosco officially released their third and heaviest album "Agora É A Sua Vez" (freely translated: "It's Your Turn Now") on all digital platforms and also in physical CD format with slipcase.

This new release shows a great sonic catharsis in terms of production, songwriting, creativity, brutality and, logically, the visceral lyrics, sung in Portuguese, that always carry a pure hatred against everything and everyone that spoils the society.

The previous singles are two powerful examples: "O Brasil é o Crime" (freely translated: "Brazil is a Crime"), which speaks about the growing intensity of violence and robberies in the country and the recurring problem of the "pandemic" of crack use in the center of the city of São Paulo, and the rawness and brutality of "Hellvetia", which features a guest frenetic guitar solo by Dave Austin (Nasty Savage).

The special guests don't stop here, because the album closes with a cover of one of the greatest Brazilian metal classics for "Guerreiros do Metal" (freely translated: "Metal Warriors") by the pioneering thrash metal veterans of Korzus. None other than Silvio Golfetti, founder and ex-guitarist, himself plays the second solo.

For curiosity's sake, Silvio Golfetti (ex-Korzus) was the guitarist who stepped in for an injured Andreas Kisser on Sepultura's "Arise" European tour in 1991.

"Agora É A Sua Vez" is the first album with the experienced bassist Carlos Diaz (ex-Vulcano, ex-Hierarchical Punishment and ex-Chemical Disaster). His comments on his entry into the band and his first full album with the band: "Being part of Tosco made me very excited because it is a band that I really like the type of sound they make, for the opportunity to play with Ricardo and Paulo again, the band was already in the final process of composing the songs and they are completely insane. Heavy as f@%$ (laughs)".
