The Brazilian band Baixo Calão releases the single with a music video for the song “Pódio de entrada”, featuring the famous singer of the band Ratos de Porão, João Gordo. The song is released by the label Xaninho Discos and brings all the energy of Brazilian Grindcore, mixed with the punk rock of Ratos de Porão, known all over the world.
Formed in mid-1996 in the city of Belém do Pará, Baixo Calão made a hardcore punk sound. The band’s first demo, from 2003 ‘Homo Postumus’, features more Crust-Grind rhythms. In the debut album ‘Atmo Mediokra’ (2012) the band was already doing Grindcore oldschool and won a European tour in July 2012, passing through eight countries, a tour that featured participation in the festival OBSCENE EXTREME FESTIVAL (2012) that takes place in Czech Republic, sharing the stage with bands like Yacopsae, Discharge, Nasum, Gutalax and Sakata.
After some changes in formation and releases in several European countries, Baixo Calão was invited to perform some shows in 2020, due to the pandemic some were canceled and others postponed. Then, the band focused on studio work during the pandemic, generating several new compositions, including participation in splits with bands from Latin America and the release of the single with the participation of João Gordo.
Baixo Calão continues to promote his new studio album, entitled ‘Necrology’, which in 2021 will gain its LP format.
