Track By Track: Guerreiros Paulistas - São Paulo National State (2011)


[PT] Sobre o CD
Neste CD nós criamos uma História Alternativa (que é um gênero da ficção científica) pra São Paulo e seu mundo ao redor. Em um futuro próximo, os países socialistas latino-americanos ganham força em detrimento da decadência moral européia e norte-americana, que cada vez mais rejeitaram e acabaram por aniquilar sua forma de pensar tradicional com políticas liberais de esquerda e imigrações desenfreadas. No Brasil o ambiente se torna perigoso quando, mais e mais, cresce a tensão entre liberais de esquerda e conservadores. Quando o governo centralizador de Brasília começa a, definitivamente e oficialmente, se aproximar dos líderes socialistas vizinhos, eclode uma reação forte dos conservadores e econômico-liberais (apoiados por alguns setores do Exército, Polícias locais e conservadores norte-americanos). Brasília se desestabiliza e iniciam-se momentos de caos até que finalmente se assina um novo tratado onde se formam os Estados Confederados do Brasil, dando liberdade para que cada Estado tome sua posição sobre incorporar as políticas socialistas ou seguir outros rumos. São Paulo (agora Estado Nacional de São Paulo) e mais alguns Estados da Confederação se mantém não-socialistas e inicia-se um estado de Guerra Fria que dura por volta de 10 anos quando, por fim, os socialistas começam o ataque para terminar de conquistar os Estados não-socialistas que restaram.


[EN] About The Album

For this album we created an Alternative History (which is a genre of sci-fi) for São Paulo and its surroundings. In a near future, the socialist Latin-American countries gain power over the moral decadence of Europe and the USA that more and more reject and ended up annihilating their traditional way of thinking with left-liberal politics and uncontrolled immigration. In Brazil the ambient get dangerous when the tension between left-liberals and conservatives grows increasingly. When the centralizing government of the capital Brasília gets definitively and officially closer to the socialist neighbour countries a reaction conflict starts strongly initiated by conservatives and liberal-economists (supported by some sectors of the Army, Local Polices and the North-American Conservatives). The capital Brasília destabilizes and moments of chaos start until a treaty is finally signed forming the Estados Confederados do Brasil (Confederated States of Brazil), setting all the States free to decide if they will be socialists or follow another path. São Paulo (now São Paulo National State) and some other States remain non-socialists and then a kind of Cold War start lasting about 10 year when suddenly the socialists start an attack to finish conquering the remaining non-socialist States of the Confederation.
