Sao Paulo's most sought after trio Metá Metá is launching on Goma Gringa Discos the 2nd edition of their LP "MetaL MetaL", they are starting today a tour in Europe and on this occasion, they've released on their site a 3 tracks EP available for free download to promote the Tour!
Initially, Metá Metá is a trio formed by Juçara Marçal (vocal), Thiago França (sax) and Kiko Dinucci (guitar). They released in 2011 their first recording, unfortunately never pressed on vinyl.
Acoustic and minimalist, this record might be the most beautiful thing I've heard from Brazilian contemporary scene so we strongly recommend you to download it officially and for free HERE.
A year later, in 2012, they are back with MetaL MetaL. In this opus, the trio is accompanied by Marcelo Cabral (bass), Sergio Machado (drums) and Samba Sam (percussions). As suggested by the title, those additions results in an electric, heavy and dense sound melting perfectly the spiritual and rhythmic foundations of the Afro-Brazilian religion Candomblé ancient chants into a dirty brew of psychedelic sambas, distorted jazz and afro-punk.
Listening to MetaL MetaL means to enter into a wild world where Samba, Jazz, Punk Rock, Afro Beat, Freeform Jazz, Afro-Bazilian traditions and Be-Bop are divided into pieces, mixed up and re-assembled into a unique and genuine harmonic construction as spiritual than edgy.
The cover, received a special treatment. A beautiful 420gr red paper carefully silkscreened in golden ink on both side and simply fold in the middle, which turns her a double-sided cover so you can choose your favorite one. Artworks, naturally, are signed by Kiko Dinucci. Hand drawing on one side, woodcut on the other! Sweet! Strictly limited to 300 copies! Don’t sleep!
Howard Male (The Independent - UK)
"Urgents and ecstatics songs, an euphoric chaos, as a reflection of the time.”
Les Inrockuptibles - FR
"Dense, abundant, spiritual and passionant, Metal Metal asserts itself as one of the most creative albums that we have been given to listen to since a long time.”

The band, as a quintet, is now in Europe for a 13 dates Tour! Starting today in Strasbourg, here are all of their dates around Europe:
To promote this tour, the band has recorded last month a 3 tracks EP.
Here are the band's words to describe it:
"While we're still preparing our third record, here's an EP, released on the night before of our third euro tour departure. We recorded three songs that entered our setlist after the last album, but were not record, so we took the opportunity.
The EP opens with "Atoto", by Kiko Dinucci, originally recorded by him and Juçara on 2007 "Pade". Second track is called "Me Perco Nesse Tempo", previously record on the album "Cadê as Armas", by brazilian post-punk band "As Mercenarias". At last, an acoustic version of "Sozinho", a samba composed by Douglas Germano, much like the trio's first album from 2011.
This EP was recorded in April 2nd, 2015 at El Rocha studio. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Fernando Sanches."
