DEAF KIDS (D-beat/Raw Punk/Downtempo BRA)
“Deaf Kids is a one-man punk band formed by Dovglas, from Volta Redonda-Rio de Janeiro-Brazil, that started in the middle of 2010. This havoc machine hails straight from Brazilian lands, wielding a harsh mixture of vicious d-beat, abrasive sludgey guitars and walls of noise. Waves of repetition, raw dis-chords, dissonant riffs… by the time the echoing vocals are in, you’re out. Out from the normal state of mind. In less than three years, followed by Angu and Marian on the bass and drums, Deaf Kids toured south and midwest, played at gigs in 8 different states along with bands like O Cúmplice, Sin Orden, Test, Possuído Pelo Cão, Noala, The Black Coffins, O Mito da Caverna, Cidade Cemitério and many others. Their shows are widely known for it’s intensity, density and violence, with lots of guitar reverb, echoing and harsh ambiences.”
