Black Drawing Chalk
Black Drawing Chalk do fast, dirty rock with a tough, stoner edge – that’s raw crunching guitars, thrashing drums and a show that’s made for drinking and dancing. Hailing from Goiânia, the rock capital of Brazil, BDC have been making a big noise all over Brazil, including major festivals like Goiânia Noise Festival and Abril Pro Rock. They’ve played alongside artists such as Motorhead, Eagles Of Dead Metal, Rage Against The Machine, The Datsuns and Nashville Pussy. Black Drawing Chalks have released three albums on Monstro Discos.
