Alarde Short Info

Alarde is a rock’n’roll band immersed in psychedelic moods and intense performance, influenced by bands from the 70’s and the 90’s; the debut album is filled with original content and personality. With deep, visceral live performances, the band shows its strength though its high-octane energy and multi-referential rock’n’roll, with some improvisation and self surrender to the music.

The Band started in the end of 90’s in the countryside and, later in 2005, moved to São Paulo where it has been performing ever since and often at the most important venues of Sao Paulo and throughout the country. In 2009, Alarde released their first studio album named “Oitoitenta”, which is considered by many industry professionals to be one of the most promising ensembles from the current indie scene in Brazil.

The album “Oitoitenta” (8/80) features 13 original songs, peculiar tones and melodies and lyrics that reflect the torments and hopes stemmed from a thirdworld, urban, chaotic land. The special guest, Lanny Gordin, the most brilliant guitar player from Brazil who has influenced all psychedelic sounds from the Tropicalia period, participated in the recording of the album and on stage.

Recently this year, the band has released their second and also 13-original-tracked album, "Abismo ao Redor" (Surrounding Abyss). This record grows more refined than its predecessor, revealing wider dynamics and a more mature approach towards song writing and arranging, with both elements reflecting the ever-evolving nature of the band.

It has the same psychedelic energy from 8/80, but heavier. Actually, heavy doesn't describe the record properly: dense would fit better. Also, the record gives us plenty many references that are general, wich anyone is able to empathise with - even. We have our hopes up in "Eterno aprendiz errante", we have our griefs and karma challenged in "Palavra", we have an serious concern and complaint about our ways of living in "Mundo decadente" - but only groovier.

The musical references on this album goes from heavy riffs such as grunge and metal who work their way into jazz-like swing melodies and beats, throughout beautifully arranged solos from both guitars. The album turned out not to be just a good rock n roll composition, but a record with a solid concept due to the passionate attitude of the bands members towards music and life.

"Alarde is a Brazilian rock group, formed in Sao Paulo in 2006. Known for their visceral live performances across the country, the four piece combine grunge ferocity with 70's psychedelia and its subsequent resurgences. With only two albums under their belt and few minor hits such as Oitoitenta ("All-Or-Nothing"), Vida Bandida ("Thug Life") and Faca ("Knife") — the band has been doing justice to its name (Alarde literally means Fuss) by managing to build a steadily growing core of devotees and also captivate the ears and eyes of the music industry. To date, the band have established the psychedelic credentials for their collaborative work with the legendary Tropicalia guitarist Lanny Gordin. They also have marked their presence in the hard rock scene for their long partnership with the producer Brendan Duffey and the opening for Motorhead in Sao Paulo in 2011." (Tito Cordeiro)
