30 Years Ago: ARMAGEDOM release Silencio Funebre

...we started out with the help of a huge band in the punk scene, we didn't know how to play anything but we had the rock'n'roll of Stiff Little Fingers in our blood and the masters from Discharge with Cal (laughs). About our first record, it was funny because it was released by a metal label. At first we were a little worried about that, but fuck it, it was the second LP released by a punk band in Brazil. In the eighties there was a lot of prejudice against punks and metalheads, and a lot of metalheads came to our shows. We really liked that, specially because at the time we loved bands like Venom and Motörhead, so we wanted to have something from these four bands on our record. We didn't get to this result musically, but that was the idea. Here in Brazil, to this day, bands ask us how we did that...

ARMAGEDOM released their debut album, Silêncio Fúnebre, on this day in 1986.

On our first record we took [lyrics] much more seriously, there had to be some specific content in the lyrics, we ruled out a lot of good songs because they didn't talk about a specific theme or because it didn't send the same message.
