Brazilian Old School Thrash Metal band SACRIFIX has just released his brand new, awesome, raw and brutal single entitled “Raped Democracy” featuring guest appearances of great brazilian metal legends Murillo Leite (vocal/Genocidio) and Mauricio Amaral (guitar/Anthares) on all digital plataforms. “Raped Democracy” will be part of their forthcoming new and still untitled album due out later this year.

Gustavo Piza – Drums
Murillo Leite – Vocals
Maurício Amaral – Lead Guitar (1st solo)
Produced by Frank Gasparotto
Mixed and mastered by Marco Nunes
In Frank Gasparotto’s words, “Raped Democracy” is an aggressive Thrash Metal, direct and straight, that talks about the dark times of dictatorship that unbelievably came back to haunt us nowadays. “There are those who argue that torture and oppression is the best way, but we have total contempt for those ideas and people”, he commented. Its theme was based on journalist Miriam Leitao‘s accounts of the horror she suffered at that time and that we can never accept that this type of situation should never be back!
The art cover was created by Frank Gasparotto and is a montage of the photo taken by journalist Vladimir Herzog, who died at the DOI/CODI in Sao Paulo. The irony is that Herzog was born in the old Yugoslavia and his family came to Brazil to escape the sick nazis. The official cause of death was suicide.
“It was a great pleasure to have participated in this recording! My solo was a very interesting challenge and on top of that we did a Live Session for a video recorded live in the studio which will be released soon. For sure Sacrifix will still present a lot of cool and quality stuff for us headbangers”, commented Maurício Amaral.
“First line Thrash! I was extremely honored by the invitation and equally happy with the result of this partnership. Long live Sacrifix!”, concluded Murillo Leite.
