feature: brazilian metal/hardcore band dekapto takes cues from pantera and suicidal tendencies

January 25, 2016

Dekapto is a metal/hardcore band from Uberaba, Brazil. If you don’t already listen to metal, fear not, their music can be newbie-friendly with long stretches of infectious melodies. Formed in 2015 by four friends who were already playing music in other bands, the guys bonded over a shared interest in heavy music from bands like Pantera, Lamb of God, Suicidal Tendencies, and Sepultura. Much of their music is inspired by personal conflicts, social expectations, beliefs, and paradigms that are broken everyday. Check them out down below and on Soundcloud.
