Genre/Influences: Industrial, Electronic, Ritual.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: Brazilian formation Pecadores originally released “Diabo Que Me Carrege” in 2022 by Wave Records. The album has been re-released by the end of 2023 in Europe by Danse Macabre. One of the important and essential aspects behind this work is the involvement -mixing and production, of Fernando Nahtaivel.

Content: Pecadores has seriously reworked and improved their sound, evolving towards a heavier, Industrial-driven work carried by haunting atmospheres. Several songs reveal a deeply, Ritual side while one of the last cuts is an adaptation of a renowned Jewish Folk song. A few parts are moving into a Cinematic approach but most of the cuts are mixing Industrial, Electronics and Ritual music empowered by guitar. The vocals have been sung in Portuguese.

+ + + : I like the obscure and ghost-like atmosphere hanging over the work. The sound is hard to catch but clearly bringing different influences together. Pecadores has achieved a meaningful production featuring several noticeable cuts. I recommend listening to the title song for its hostile atmosphere, “Velhoamigo Seudiabo” for the Cinematic approach and “Penitência 2022” for its Ritual side.

– – – : It’s hard to label this band and album so this is probably not the most accessible work although an interesting one to pay attention for.

Conclusion: I’m not sure Pecadores will conquer the European market by this album but it will however appeal to open-minded, curious, listeners. I like it!

Best songs: “Diabo Que Me Carrege“, “Velhoamigo Seudiabo”, “Penitência 2022“, “Velhoamigo Seudiabo“. 

Rate: 7½.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
