Os Mutantes Fool Metal Jack
Release Date: April 30, 2013
Label: Krian Music Group
Fool Metal Jack crackles with depth, confidence and complexity.
The title track treads with a marauding, heavy-leaded beat (and Vinícius Junqueira's floor-knocking bass) as Dias gnashes his teeth over tales of wartime - yet another young soldier at death's door. But 'To Make It Beautiful' dispels the darkness in favor of a sunny and endlessly catchy meditation on love, devotion and personal connection. 'Once Upon A Flight' (written by the band's resident multi-instrumentalist Vitor Trida) whips up a swirling circus of inspired art-rock riffage, its infectious refrain of 'Fly...open wide...go, fly out!' providing the perfect vehicle for veteran Mutantes drummer Dinho Lemeto take off into the stratosphere.
