Brazilian quintet Desalmado supplies listeners with a brutal barrage of grind, death, and thrash metal on their six-track, 15-minute offering HEREDITAS. Sharing as much in common musically with fellow countrymen Sepultura as they do Napalm Death and Brujeria, this squad’s consistent breakneck pace, relentless riffs, and endless stream of tormented vocals are delivered with a sharpened sense of neck snapping brevity (“Manto de Sangue”), allowing Desalmado to blast your head clean off your shoulders with assassin-like precision. While Desalmado does little in the way of innovation, their scalding display of aggression warrants repeated visits into the moshpit.
