Centúrias typified the initial era of Brazilian rock bands of the first ’80s: underprivileged children surviving in a nation that was agonizing through the waning many years of a stifling armed service dictatorship, armed with barely adequate tools, and penning riffs and Portuguese lyrics predicated on what imported Deep Crimson and Judas Priest albums they could easily get their practical. The group 1st started rehearsing in 1980 and was playing its 1st gigs around their indigenous São Paulo by the next yr (with keyboardist Guina offering a Rainbow-like touch), ultimately scraping up plenty of money to cover some studio period and record a nine-song demonstration in 1983. This reputable range of encounter would be eligible Centúrias — after that made up of vocalist Eduardo Camargo, guitarist Fausto, bassist Milani, and drummer Paulão Thomaz — to be the first music group chosen for addition in the S.P. Metallic compilation of 1984, which helped propel the Brazilian rock scene to another level. Sadly, the people of Centúrias got grown quite sick and tired of each other at that time so, after slicing another four-song demonstration in 1985, Camargo and Thomaz earned new people Adriano Giudice (acoustic guitar) and Rubens Guarnieri (bass) to record 1986’s Última Noite EP. The music group then split up completely, but consistent drummer Paulão would shortly resurrect Centúrias by using vocalist César “Cachorrão” Zanelli (ex-Santuário), guitarist Marcos Patriota, and bassist Ricardo Ravache (both of these ex-Harppia). This lineup finally documented Centúrias’ only full-length record, 1988’s Ninja, nonetheless it would get to stores at the same time when its trad-metal design have been rendered outdated by youthful and fiercer Brazilian serves such as for example Sepultura and Viper — who also sang in British. Centúrias split up again a short while later, but provides continued to execute the unusual reunion gig over time.
