Barrabas from Brazil brings this brutal cd with insane drumming and raw vocals in the vein of the savage Sarcofago, the metal riffs permeate the fabric of this album, this is a fast album and it focuses purely on brutal riffs.This album would certainly destroy you. The production on this album is very good, as mentioned it feels like a Southamerican black/death metal record. The album should ship with sticker emblazoned on the front cover "This is so fuckin' southamerican mean metal". Nyarlathotep Records did an excellent job with the production on this album. Also to add to the peculiarity of this release it actually has a much superior production than the trinity of black metal bands from Norway released in the early 90's. Barrabas is for extreme people and underground headbangers, for fans of Sarcofago, Vulcano, Mayhem, Immortal, Hellhammer, among others of that ilk. It's just a perfect cd. If you're a black and death metal fan; then "The Arrival Of Yog-Sothoth" is for you.
