South America’s Claustrofobia has now released details on a DVD being released to coincide with the “Visceral European” tour and also to celebrate twenty years of bringing punishing thrash from Brazil to the worldwide stage.

Comments vocalist and guitarist Marcus D’Angelo: “The DVD, ‘Visceral 20 Years,’ is a résumé of our career up until now, it also closes one circle and another begins. It was produced totally independently; there is no major company involved.

There are also all our video clips and other bonus materials. It’s very special to be able to share to both old and new fans alike a bit of these last 20 years.”
