Brazil was (was meaning that they do not exist anymore) a sort of unique, unknown band. They are a rock band with sort of an 80's vocal feel to them. Their instrumentals however, are almost punk in origin. If you've ever heard Fall of Troy, I would probably compare Brazil to them. Fans of bands such as Fall of Troy, Rush, Rise Against, Black Flag, Anberlin, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and others in those sorts of genres would enjoy Brazil. They construct what I would consider to be very complex songs for the genres that they're associated with (Punk, grunge, classic rock). They released two full length albums prior to their breakup, but The Philosophy of Velocity is the better of the two in my opinion. Crime (And the Antique of Solution) best describes the sound that they shoot for when making music. However, other songs off of the album, such as Au Revoir, Mr. Mercury, are well constructed, with other instruments implemented(Piano)

I really don't have any songs that you need to be avoiding when listening to their music, all of them are likable to some degree. In the related section of the embedded video, you will find Breathe, as well as Captain Mainwaring. These are two of their better songs, both off of TPoV. In short, a progressive/punk band with incredible songwriting skills. Fans of both genres will probably enjoy Brazil. As always, if you have any questions, comments, etc. email me at gorefeastnb@aol.com, or simply leave a comment. Views/clicks always appreciated.
