AÇÃO DIRETA - World Freak Show


This Brazilian pack called AÇÃO DIRETA can, with a clear conscience, be placed alongside other South American hardcore/punk legends such as Ratos de Porão, Agrotoxico or Armagedom. The inception of this band dates back to almost unbeliavable year of 1987!!!

Still active and still aggressive hardcore/punk with, as for Brazilians, a necessary pinch of metal/thrash. In addition, a new recording is being planned  for the end of 2019. Brazilian hardcore/metal storm at Obscene Extreme Festival 2020!!!
