Serrabulho – “Porntugal (Portuguese Vagitarian Gastronomy)”
Release date: 1-12-2018
Genre: Party Death/Grind; Happy Grindcore; Goregrind
Label: Rotten Roll Rex
Portuguese farmers Serrabulho will release their third album “Porntugal (Portuguese Vagitarian Gastronomy)”, in December, 15th via Rotten Roll Rex.
Porntugal features a wide variety of guest appearances. Besides the bagpipe, Ricardo Santos also plays rabel (similar to an archaic violin and descendend from the medieval rebec), tarota (a catalan wind instrument, that belongs to the Oboes family), adufe (a portuguese square drum), galician tambourine and vieiras (scallop shells).
Manuel Meirinhos [Galandum Galundaina, Trasgo] contributes with additional vocals, sampling and bagpipe. Freaky, the crazy chihuahua barks (a lot) on the song Os Tintins do Tintin. Also, additional vocals throughout the CD were provided by Susana Lima and Hugo Picamilho [PadariaGang].
Some field recordings captured in loco by ethnomusicologist Tiago Pereira & A Música Portuguesa a Gostar Dela Própria [http://amusicaportuguesaagostardelapropria.org/] were used on the disc.
With Porntugal, Serrabulho focused on its Portuguese cultural/musical heritage and wrote an intense-yet-exotic album, with multiple layers that result in an ever-more-distinctive effort.
The band also notes that a part of Serrabulho’s twisted aesthetic actually originates from the minds of two young ladies: “Susana Catalão, our most beloved lyricist, has penned the vast majority of the songs’ lyrics, delivering some of funniest stories, written in an exquisite way that lets us delve ever-deeper in our craziness. Meanwhile, Marta Peneda’s cover art has been the band’s calling card. Every time we talk to either Susana and Marta about some ideas we had, they return to us with even more deranged concepts than the ones we initially brainstormed.”
