I Shot Cyrus

Complete Discography 1997-2001

Super-fast screaming hardcore band from São Paulo, Brazil. The name was taken from one of my all time favorite movies, The Warriors from 1979. Cyrus was the leader of a gang that was shot at the beginning of the movie and The Warriors where accused of killing him. If you have never watched this movie, you should rent it, it's a must-see. This album is a compilation of all their early material between 1997 and 2001. Most songs are in Portuguese but barely understandable even if you speak the language. Their lyrics are a direct furious assault on capitalism, wars, US domination in the third world countries, cops, religion, etc... The band has had different band members over the years and this album has 4 different line-ups. Songs are short, fast and straight to the point. The album is also very short, unfortunately. As a bonus, there is a girl carrying the bass duties. This is good stuff, I hope you guys dig this.
