Deafbrick are born from the meeting between two names that have been able to win the interest of the most attentive and curious listeners, namely the Deafkids, composed by Marcelo dos Santos (bass), Mariano de Melo (drums) and Douglas Leal (guitar), and Petbrick, a project that sees Iggor Cavalera at work - obviously on drums - together with the sound manipulator Wayne Adams, who takes care of the electronic part in the broadest sense of the term. After the live that saw the five musicians interact on the Roadburn stage (the Deafkids already talked about it a year ago) the idea was born to meet to leave a lasting trace of the common experience and its potential. From the three days closed in the studio, a work was born which we will talk about exhaustively in the review, what follows is their version of the facts, a real user manual to understand every single facet of this interesting collaboration.
