Brazil is a very large country on the centre and East of South America. The Brazlian flag includes a starry sky and the national motto ‘order and progress’
With 214million people, Brazil is the largest country in South America, and by land mass it is 15 times the size of France.
Brazil plays host to 60% of the world’s rainforest, and Rio de Janeiro was once the capital of Portugal, making it the only European capital to have ever been located outside of Europe.
Rio plays host to 2 million people each year who come to attend the carnival, possibly using one of the 400 airports in the country.
Brazilian prisoners are allowed to reduce their sentence by 4 days for every book that they read.
In the 1970s Brazil was perhaps more interested in Rock and Roll than Metal, but as a musical genre it was soon to take off.
Famous Brazilian metal bands include Angra, Sepulchra and Viper.
