Following five albums and numerous tours, Brazilian grindcore masters Desalmado are back with a new effort titled “Mass Mental Devolution”, due out on October 8th via Gruesome Records in cooperation with Xaninho Discos, Sana Maior Records and Shinigami Records.
Today, the Brazilian unleashed a music video for a brand new track titled “Across The Land”. With cinematography and 3D art by Walter de Andrade, this new video is now playing here.
If you missed it, the video for “Your God, Your Dictator” is still playing at this location.
Desalmado once again remains true to their grindcore origins, not only for its aggressive and utterly destructive sounding music, but also for its musical and insurgent attitude, exposing the guts of a perverse and alienated world subservient to a system manipulated by the dominant classes and “Mass Mental Devolution” is no different.
Produced by Hugo Silva and Desalmado, recorded by Hugo Silva at Family Mob (São Paulo, Brasil) with the assistance of Otavio Rossato, “Mass Mental Devolution” really captures the intensity of the band’s live shows, a fierce and crushing grindcore sound that will make fans of Napalm Death and Brutal Truth more than happy. Pre-orders are now available here.
The album artwork concept was created by artist Jeca Paul, who had already worked on the “Save Us from Ourselves” album. “We’ve always been very careful with the graphic part of our releases because it’s what wraps up the message we want to transmit in each album. Jeca has the right ideas and the same way as Desalmado does in expressing them so he managed to perfectly capture the entire concept of “Mass Mental Devolution”. This album has a heavy, dense atmosphere and we were all going through personal difficult times by the time we wrote it. When Jeca sent the first cover version we immediately approved it and didn’t change a bit. Once again, he did an incredible job for Desalmado”, explains bassist Bruno Teixeira.
