- Hardcore / Punk / Metal
"Admired by the Cavalera brothers (Iggor wore their shirt in many Sepultura concerts and recorded one song in their second album, Max carry their sticker on his »Brazilian flag» guitar), among lots of others accomplishments, Questions is today one of the best Hardcore bands that ever came out of South America". Rodrigo Carneiro, journalist at Showlivre.
They started in February 2000, moved by the feeling of mixing the energy and intensity of hardcore music and the strength and aggressiveness of metal music. The name stands a critic vision towards life: questioning, don't accept anything passively. Their lyrics express a positive, constructive way to endure the difficulties of living in a third world country.
Since their first demo-tape named «We Shall Overcome», released in June 2000, the band established themselves as one of the most powerful bands ever formed in Brazil. Their show is energetic and passionate, keeping alive the spirit of old school Hardcore bands.
In this 17 years journey, the band kept pushing the boundaries of underground music in Brazil, recording 5 CDs, doing countless videos, including a documentary about the São Paulo Hardcore Scene and playing shows all over the country, not only in clubs but also as a guest of large fetivals like Gas Fest (SP), Grito do Rock (Cuiabá), Dosol (Natal), Mundo (João Pessoa) and made three big tours in Europe, where they played more than 70 gigs in 20 countries, including Russia, Greece, Germany, Poland, Turkey, etc.
One strike Left
PUNKROCK! HARDCORE! ROCK’N’ROLL!
one strike left get in the punkrock bus and pedal the hardcore throttle to the bottom. The speakers clang with bands like BoySetsFire, Comeback Kid and A Wilhelm Scream. At full speed they break through traditional conventions and dull stereotypes. Thereby they let out all the social and private frustration, livid, self-critical and not seldom winking.
Those who get on this bus have a jaunty melody on their minds fast and can’t keep their feet calm. So turn the volume up and head straight for the rock’n’roll highway!!!
Playing live the band demonstrates their true strength: The overboarding delight of playing and a self-ironic wink easily infect the crowd.
Since 2006 one strike left recorded 2 DIY-EPs and played over 100 Shows all across Germany, amongst others supporting national and international acts like Ignite (US), Against Me! (US), MxPx (US), Verse (US), 5Bugs (GER), Antillectual (NL), Failsafe (UK), More Than A Thousand (POR) and many more…
