Crazy Town hails from Los Angeles, California and on November 9th, 1999 they unleashed upon Planet Metal  one of the greatest Rap Rock/ nü-metal albums of all-time…and if I ever had to do a Rap Rcok / Nü-metal top 100 albums of all-time this band is at the top of the upper-echelon since they are pioneers,  they just took the same influences we all have and stamped there own authority and have a signature sound of there own to be included in these pages.  Since it was one of the most exhilirating concerts with a highly charismatic front man in Shifty Shellshock, and a awesome KILLER GUITAR tone from Elias “ET” Tannous, and the rest of the band was on fire, and alot head-bangers and hard rockers of attendance made the comment Crazy Town was a bucket list for them!!!!!!!!!! FUCK YEA now you lived a full fucking life !!!! ….at least see them once live in your life-time, you know what!!!! They are fucking right on that !!!! Out of the thousands of concerts i have been to since 1982 when i started my punk rock/ metallic addiction concert experiences!!! Crazy Town went all-out 110% dedication to there fans, and those who show-up i am sure will be true believers. I completed my bucket list in 2015 seen every top favorite band subjective and objective, and since I have been a fan of there albums, seeing this line-up performing with this much energy, talent and conviction, when i look back on this, in the future, as a live band in the heavier hard rock/alternative metal / Nü-metal realm, this is the one to go see, and the one, that has the best sound, and positive vibes!!!! With a foundation date of the band going back to 1995, and being part of the 1990’s metal zeitgeist, circa November 9th, 1999…..So new fans of modern rock and older Alternative Metal maniac insane fanatics, want to go see one of THE HEAVIEST bands around…go see this, at all cost, the job of a music news service, is to find you the greatest bands of all-time, live and on vinyl, on both counts Crazy Town RULES, and are 110% KICK ASS!!!!

For those who have no idea about heavy metal history and hard rock history, good fucking luck NOT SEEING THIS band all over every mainstream metal ‘zine all-over this planet, on the radio and on MTV !!!!!

Crazy Town HIGHEST FUCKING RECOMMENDATION……………Untill a heavier band in there genre can be found !!!

When the new millennium arrived the music industry was in the midst of a new music revolution. The free delivery via shared files online created a new “outlaw” brand, that would prove instrumental in the way music would be not just delivered but created. One of the breakout bands to not just embrace but help shift the tectonic plates of the music industry was Crazy Town. As one of the first hybridbrands, they brought a new ball into the game. Equal parts urban and suburban, Chevrolet and Bentley, they rolled onto the music scene with a slow build that erupted when a “Butterfly” entered the room. The two founding members, Seth Binzer and Bret Mazur were introduced to each other by WILL I AM of the BLACK EYED PEAS. Binzer brought in his long-time friend DJ AM and Crazytown was born.

The band was all the buzz in the industry, the talk of LA. Crazytown-mania created a classic Hollywood record label bidding war in which Columbia Records ultimately won. It was the Columbia/Sony worldwide reach which appealed the most to Crazytown and that reach had them touring the world and eventually garnered them a number 1 record in more than 15 countries, and selling more than 6 million copies of their first album, THE GIFT OF GAME. The success of their worldwide smash hit Butterfly in 2001was inescapable and reached iconic status.

In 2003, CrazyTown released the follow up to GIFT OF GAME, titled DARKHORSE. Couched by record executives to deliver a harder sound, the band did not follow their instincts in the studio. DARKHORSE was not the follow up record the band wanted to, or should have delivered. The luke warm reception by the media, and lackluster sales of the sophomore effort strained the relationship between the label and the band. Whether or not Crazytown was a vicitim of the changing playing field or of their own success, they found themselves without a record deal soon thereafter. Mazur and Binzer decided to take a little hiatus and re-energize for what would be Crazytowns third record. Binzer went on to have great success with a solo effort and Paul Oakenfold’s Starry Eyed Surprise. Mazur went back to his roots as a Writer/Producer/remixer working with the likes of The Plain White Tees, Julien K, Hollywood Undead and many more.

Months turned to years, and it wasn’t until Bret called Seth to discuss releasing an album of unreleased Crazytown songs that the spark was re-ignited. They decided to get back into the studio and add one, or two brand new songs to the mix. In Mazur’s words “I just felt like we had all these songs that our fans would love to hear! Why let them die in my hard drive.” One or two new songs turned into a complete reformation of a new Crazytown. “We are taking it back to our roots, for the love of what we do”, stated Binzer.

If you were lucky enough to catch the sneak preview of their new track “Lemon Face” you know they mean business. A full record release is in the works for 2014. Well poised for reinvigorating their fans and banging out new ones, the band launches live with a handful of Southwest US dates, including the legendary Whiskey A Go Go in Hollywood. Then it is off to Europe in June to own their slot at uber music fests Rock In Park & Rock Am Ring in Germany, and NovaRock in Austria, before crushing it at Download in the UK. The tour is rounded out by other high profile festivals, and some headline shows.

Crazytown is back. Crazytown is wiser. Crazytown is better. Crazytown is now!

Nervosa Biography 

 

All female power thrash metal trio from São Paulo, formed by Fernanda Lira (bass and vocals), Prika Amaral (guitar and backing vocals) and Luana Dametto (drums).

Despite being part of bands from different styles previously, like death metal and crossover, all members see in the compositions of Nervosa a same passion: thrash metal. With strong influences coming from bands of this genre’s classic school, the girls of the band seek to rescue the best in heavy music.

Prika Amaral started the band in February 2010, and in July 2011 Fernanda Lira took on the bass and vocals of NERVOSA, and only then, finally with the full team, the band started working as a professional band – writing songs, recording, playing shows.

In March 2012, the band released their first music video for “Masked Betrayer,” which reached the incredible mark, for a new band, of 20,000 views in just one week, prompting them to receive an Honorable Mention from YouTube, as the 17th most watched clip of musicians of the week and 55th most viewed in the month of March of that year.

Thanks to the notoriety gained through their hard work, NERVOSA in the following months, achieved a great accomplishment: the contract with the Austrian label Napalm Records, which has in their roster names like Cavalera Conspiracy, WASP, Grave Digger, Moonspell, Huntress, among many others.

Still in 2012, the band’s first record, a demo with 3 tracks, was released in Brazil on CD independently, under the title ’2012′ in August, and abroad by Napalm Records on turquoise vinyl, and by Nuclear Blast in a clear version, both under the title ‘Time Of Death’, whose cover art was designed by artist Andrei Bouzikov, who has worked with several bands previously, such as Municipal Waste.

Nervosa ends the year 2012 with a very positive balance with more than 50 concerts made around the country, among them, sharing the stage with bands like Exodus, Raven, Grave, Samael (in the festival Roça n Roll), Exumer and Artillery , among others.

After a period of exchanging drummers, the one who assumed the position in February of 2013 was Pitchu Ferraz.

Thus, the year 2013 began with a renewed vibe, and the band continued to promote their EP throughout the country, with shows in several states, and even a tour over the North and Northeast of the country, as well as sharing the stage with other great Names of the world scene such as Korzus, Ratos de Porão and also Destruction, Exciter, Blaze Bayley, Kreator, DRI And Benediction.

In 2014, the girls finished the recording of their first full lenght, titled Victim of Yourself, which had 12 tracks and whose cover was signed again by the artist Andrei Bouzikov, and the booklet was produced by the Brazilian artist Rafael Romanelli.

The album was released in March of that same year by Napalm Records in Europe and North America, and by other record companies and distributors in South America, Japan and Russia. In addition to the traditional CD format, 4 vinyl versions were also released – in black, blue, red and clear colors, distributed by Napalm Records itself and also by Nuclear Blast.

Two clips were released throughout the album’s promotion: ‘Death!’, which achieved record-breaking views among the band’s videos (over 1 million views), and ‘Into Moshpit’, a live video compilation that demonstrates all the energy of the girls in a live show.

These two singles, added to the other tracks of the album, made ‘Victim of Yourself’ reach great response from the metal audience, as well as prominence and good ratings in major magazines in the segment around the world, such as European Metal Hammer, Rock Hard , Terrorizer and Bass Guitar, the American Revolver and Guitar World and even the Japanese Burrrn, as well as the Brazilian Roadie Crew, Bass Player, Guitar Player and Modern Drummer magazines.

The good reception of the album was essential to result in a long and intense tour that lasted for the years 2014 and 2015. To promote the album in Brazil, the band played in 17 states, went through 7 countries in Latin America and made a A successful European tour with 51 shows in 60 days, including a total of 16 countries in the continent, including performances at some of Europe’s biggest summer festivals such as Summerbreeze, Brutal Assault, Metal Days, Obscene Extreme, among others.

The ‘Victim of Yourself’ promotion tour also took the band to the United States for the first time in 2016. Starting with two presentations on the already traditional ’70000 tons of metal’ cruise, leaving from Florida and going to Jamaica, the tour also passed through much of the West Coast of the country and also to the South, with more than 30 concerts from the state of Washington all the way to the state of Florida. In addition, other new territories were explored by Nervosa, such as Mexico, where the band toured for two weeks, and other locations such as Puerto Rico and Peru.

In 2016, the band recorded their new album, titled ‘Agony’. Recorded and produced in the states of California and Oregon in the United States by Brendan Duffey and mixed and mastered by thrash master Andy Classen, the album had its world premiere announced for June 3 by the Austrian label Napalm Records.

This same year was also very intense regarding shows to promote their latest album: there were more than 160 shows only in 2016.

‘Agony’ promotion tours include a European summer tour with almost 50 dates, a full month of shows on the US East Coast and also in Canada, as well as two European tours as special guests of the German band Destruction for a total of almost 60 shows, part of them being alongside the great bands Flotsam & Jetsam and Enforcer.

In 2017, who officially takes over the drums of the band is the competent Luana Dametto, who already joins it participating in the writing of the new NERVOSA album, scheduled to be out in 2018, and also facing the second leg of Agony promotion tours.

The ‘World in Agony Tour’ will be a tour that aims exploring several countries and continents around the world. So far are already announced the legs in Brazil (which has been taking place since February this year), in Mexico and Central America in May and June and in Europe during the months of July, August and part of September. In addition, plans are already being worked out to take the tour back to the US and Canada, as well as to South America and also in new territories, such as Asia.

The day was August 22nd, 1995 and I was working as a concert promoter in the United States, and the new The Gathering CD at the time was entitled “Mandylion” featuring a new sound, new configuration. And a re-birth of a music genere.

It was a day no fan of World-Class Music featuring A World-Class Vocalist will ever forget. I was playing this timeless masterpiece @ total concert levels. You know when the windows rattle but do not shatter. My mom who was a Classical Singer in the 1960’s and 1970’s, stopped by, and I was getting ready for work, in the band booking office, so I had to wear a business suit, and my mom stopped by and turned down the stero, and asked. “Who is that? I wish I could sing like that”. Anneke van Giersbergen when my mom thinks you’re a good singer, that is the highest compliment one could ever receive in life. During a certain time frame in music 1993-2003 Atomospheric Music was very popular.

There were 4 Vocalist that dominated my CD player even to this day.

The above 3 and I knew this back in the early to mid 1990’s would join forces in a SUPER GROUP sometime in the future

thesirenskickassmetalworldclassvocalist98956654a12232321

And it happened sometime in 2013 or so I believe.

And the 4 of course Anja Natasha Lindløv

anjanatashalindlov_worldclassvocalist_987578

January 29th, 2001 was one of the best days in my life as a music fan, January 29th, 2001 it was cold as all could be, I  called first to my local record shoppe? “Is the New Dismal Euphony in” it was I put in on hold where they save it for you. I got to the record shoppe, and I got the last copy, so I knew this CD would be a classic like the predecessor. So I still had a lot of money for my CD binge, I just got a workers tax rebate, so I always spent half of this money on culture books, movies, music and the other half goes in a Christmas Savings. And the record shoppe across town had another copy of Dismal Euphony’s “Python Zero”. So at the time I had every World-Wide Pressing of this all-time Masterpiece. Not only was this one of the greatest albums of all-time. But I noticed a very important distinction. Anja Natasha Lindløv was the very first human being to be a World-Class Vocalist in 2 centuries.

I cover music as a specialized press of melodic music which features bands with male and female vocalist in the same band, or bands with female vocalist. Because in the early 1980’s using common sense and extensive training as a vocalist myself, as a classical musician a vocalist, myself. I know females add 3 ranges to music not found in male singers. And my favorite female vocalist are Contralto’s. And I have yet to confirm this with a College Professor. But I believe Anja Natasha circa 1999-2001 was a Contralto. If I am wrong on this fact, I will change my statement. But any how, one thing I know for certain as a music fan. Anja Natasha Lindløv is a 1 in a 100 billion, and no other singer has her timbre’, and her melody’s are all her own. A master at song-writing in terms of harmonies and melodies.

Those who were music fans from this era will distinctly remember this in 2001 when journalist had to make our top 10 and top 100 albums of 2001. Dismal Euphony “Python Zero” won a top 10 album of the year honor in 2001 and Anja Natasha Lindløv was name our Person of the year in 2001. Which we honor the Greatest World-Class Vocalist of that year. Every Friday Night where I work at now, we have staff meetings, talking about what albums were going to buy, and bands were going to cover, then after all that is done. We do karaoke, and the PASSWORD to get in is LYRICS album Dismal Euphony “Python Zero”. We always get pizza with double everything, and but tons of beer on ice the good stuff, and karaoke insanity, until 7:59 AM Saturday Morning.

Dismal Euphony was already a legendary band, during the Keltziva-era of Dismal Euphony.

But when the Anja Natasha – era of Dismal Euphony happened, the band became a million times more talented, more original, more melodic, and made music, of the highest order of art, supreme avant-garde gothic metal, that will survive the test of time.

In March 1999…Anja Natasha first appeared on a top 500 album, for the 20th Century. For the year 1999 with the timeless classic “ALL LITTLE DEVILS”.

Sure their was the best VHS tape released the brilliant Lady Ablaze, which also was released as a EP, in 2000..!!!!!

In January 29th, 2001 for the year 2001, I rate the album “Python Zero” as a top 10 album for that year. So it is a top 100, top 500 album for the 21st century.

Since that era. The 21st century; received it first real and true timeless, masterpiece, classic, essential album “Python Zeron” on its 29th day in 2001.

With the mind-blowing and jaw dropping “Python Zero” where Anja Natasha is a real superstar and world-class vocalist on “Python Zero”.

Anja Natasha, Really lights that LP up, with tons of charisma and talent and originality. Anja Natasha possess one of the most original timbres in all of music, not just rock music, all of music.

There is no band who released a classic album circa 1980-1999, who predates, the classic “Python Zero” which was only 29 days in. For the new century.

Sure your thinking. What about Tristania with “World of Glass” ..that was in late September, 2001, so for this historic first it is Anja Natasha.

Kristin Fjellseth has a top rated albums with KICK*ASS*METAL.

But the 2001 Crest of darkness album. was actually released in November 2000. And the Russian Jewel Case Version. Has a 2001 released date, but that happened, the Russian Jewel case re-edition, happened way after Python Zero.

Kristin Fjellseth time again. She has a heavy metal artist, during this time, circa 1999-2001 and a did TRUE NORWEGIAN SOFT ROCK, with Pale Forest. To keep thinking of this subject matter, but this time with Pale Forest as a dark pop band. But everyone knows “Exit Mould” has a July, 31, 2001 released date.

Sure whoa. Your thinking off the top of your head, Opeth’s qualifies right , but “Black Water Park”, was released in March 2001.

Sigh could make the claim with their classic 2001 album “Imaginary Sonicscapes”, but that was released in July 2001.

So far the Anja Natasha – era Dismal Euphony. Is still the first, to perform this feat.

Some bands have classics in the 20th Century and nothing in the 21 st century. and some bands have there first real classic album starting in 2001 and no classic albums in the 20th century.

How cool is that to have a favorite vocalist, who has left an indelible mark on the 20th and 21st century for the little picture, and for the big picture. The Encyclopedia sized history books of the second and third millennium…!!! Oh there she is, Anja Natasha in all four books.

Our hero Anja Natasha. On May 20th, 2008, the Dismal Euphony Anja Natasaha-era was re-edition by Metal Mind Poland. And when I rate that album. It will be rated as a best re editon of all time, a top 100 re edition of all time, easily.

Now the band Dismal Euphony has 4 Essential purchases, for the decade called 2000. Lady Ablaze, Lady Ablaze VHS, Python Zero, “All Little Devils/ Python Zero” double disc on GOLD DISC, released on May 20th, 2008, via Metal Mind Productions Poland.

Long Live Anja Natasha

Ha, you were partying like it was 1999, 2000, and 2001…and you had nostalgia for the good old days, and have a favorite vocalist Anja Natasha, and thinking whoa, what ever happened to….and you do a goggle search and BAM, whoa….Anja Natasha is alive and well…and just like during the golden era of Norwegian Gothic Rock and Gothic Metal 1993-2003…Anja Natasha is a DIVA…which means a distinguished (aka WORLD CLASS) female singer.

Anja Natasha-era Dismal Euphony is one of the reasons, i founded KICK*ASS*METAL…

This press photo of the Anja Natasha -era of Dismal Euphony hangs in my music library…!!!

Dismal Euphony were already a legendary band when Keltziva was the female vocalist…but with the addition of Anja Natasha as the new vocalist, in 1999. Gothic Rock / Gothic Metal, fans ended up with 4 Anja Natasha-era releases that are total “must haves”.

So i made this video compilation, because it is the album I have been waiting for for around a dozen years now. I would love to see the idea of this tribute page pressed onto a DVD one day…!!!

This is not a record review…since they are one of the Greatest Bands off all time. It is a write up word for word of the essay found in Panel 2 of a 6 panel CD, of a 2 DISC set…The Author Is Unknown to me. But his write up is pure genius.

In the history of gothic metal not man groups managed to deliver such skillful combination of genres as Dismal Euphony from Stavanger, Norway.

There unique mixture of death and black metal, pop, psychedelic and classical motives brought a collection of unforgettable recordings, taking the Gothenburg sound to a whole new level.

This double re-release of “ALL LITTLE DEVILS” and “PYTHON ZERO” introduces two of the band’s finest works, containing songs that will take you all the way into the heart of darkness…

The history of Dismal Euphony dates back to 1992, when bassist Ole K. Helgesen and drumme Kristoffer Void Austrheim decided to join forces and form a band together.

Soon Under the moniker Headless Children they were playing cover versions of songs by Kreator and Slayer.

That lasted until a year later, when singer Erik Borgen and guitarist Kenneth Bergsagel were added to the line-up.

The band changed there name to Carnal Tomb and began working on their own material.

In the meantime Erik Borgen decided to quite the band and the vocal duties were passed on to Helgesen, which was soon backed by female vocalist Lin Achre Tveit (Keltiziva) .

Adding keyboardist Elin Overskott completed the final line-up of the groupd which ultimately resurfaced in 1995 bearing the name Dismal Euphony.

In the same year the group recorded and self-released the demo “Spellbound”

The release caught the attention of Napalm Records and after a three=song self=titled EP, Dismal Euphony recorded their debut LP entitled “Soria Moria Slott.

This material contained mostly pure black metal and gothic ideas, however the follow-up album “Autumn Leaves: The Rebellion of Tides” 1997 showcased some unique variety of styles, taking the bands music in a whole new direction.

The Group recorded a 5 track EP called “Lady Ablaze” which featured new female vocalist Anja Natasha.

Surprisingly, the EP was not released until the year 2000.

In 1999 Dismal Euphony signed a deal with Nuclear Blast and released there third LP “All Little Devils”.

From the very first note it was clear that with this album the group reached the peaks of creativity.

The brilliantly composed material offered a great variety of inspirations, all sustained in the enchanting gothic mood.

The vocal combination of female and male voices gave a very impressive result, best hear in truly outstanding songs such as “Day of Sodom”, “Lunatic”, and “Pyscho Path”.

Many critics compared “All Little Devils”, with early The Gathering, Lacuna Coil and Nightwish, underlining, however, that Dismal Euphony managed to establish a style of their own.

The album is closed with a gentle orchestral track called “Dead Words”, where the subtle piano tones drag the listenre deep into the silent darkness…

The follow-up to “All Little Devils” was released in 2001 and marked another step in the band’s evolution.

“Python Zero” featured a great amount of psychedelic and electronica motives added to the music.

They were still delivering some heavy tunes (such as “Plasma Pool”, “Python Zero”, “Critical Mass” and “Zentinel”), but in the same time weren’t afraid of avant-garde experimentation (Magma” Birth Reverse” “Needle”.)

The resulted in one of the most fascinating goth/ metal hybrids ever created.

“Python Zero” is still considered some of the finest gothic songs in the history of the genre.

Unfortunately, Dismal Euphony disbanded after releasing their masterpiece.

All the group’s members decided to part with the music industry, while drummer Kristoffer Void Austheim became a session musician for the Norwegian black metal band Nettlecarier.

In 2004 the group syffered a “post-mortem” tragedy, as keyboardist Elin Overskott was found dead from a heroin overdose.

“All little Devils” and “Python Zero” remained Dismal Euphony’s most valuable creations, offering top quality gothich metal which will suit even the most demanding musical connoisseur.

There is nothing more KICK*ASS*METAL in my collection that rules like the Anja Natasha – era Dismal Euphony…but since I will be doing a chapter, in a collectors book on the Anja Natasha-era of Dismal Euphony. Everyone needs to remember that the band was already a legendary and heavy metal hall of fame gothic metal band during the Keltiziva – era of Dismal Euphony. So when I do my top 500 albums of all time. I will be listing Dismal Euphony for 5 classic Norwegian Gothic Metal releases. The band is so unique, they deserve to be listed in a chapter on Norwegian Gothic Metal, Norwegian Symphonic Black Metal, and as a avant-garde metal legend…This band pre-dates the current avant-garde metal movement by 3 years….the band was ahead of its time in a huge way. And Dismal Euphony deserves nothing but trust and respect, from the metal movement !!!

I worship heavy metal at the altar of Anja Natasha – era Dismal Euphony ..!!!

The band is so on target taste (Norwegian gothic, Norwegian black, Norwegian avant-garde, Symphonic, Gothic, symphonic with electronica, beauty and the beast vocal configuriation), to what I do over here at KICK*ASS*METAL, the Python Zero press photo of the Anja Natasha – era of the band hangs in my music library…DO YOU GOTH WHAT IT TAKES…Oh yeah they do. And for this Dismal Euphony is a GODSEND to all fans of gothic classical music, gothic avant-garde classical music, gothic avant-garde rock and metal, gothic rock and gothic metal.

Norway is only 4% of the world’s population, and since say 1993 40% of the classic albums in all sub-genres of heavy metal comes from this Country.

Long Live Dismal Euphony !!!

Long Live Anja Natasha…!!!!!!!!!!!

So when I do my top 500 albums of all time. I will be listing Dismal Euphony for 5 classic Norwegian Gothic Metal releases. The band is so unique, they deserve to be listed in a chapter on Norwegian Gothic Metal, Norwegian Symphonic Black Metal, and as a avant-garde metal legend…This band pre-dates the current avant-garde metal movement by 3 years….the band was ahead of its time in a huge way. And Dismal Euphony deserves nothing but trust and respect, from the metal movement !!!

I worship heavy metal at the altar of Anja Natasha – era Dismal Euphony ..!!!

The band is so on target taste (Norwegian gothic, Norwegian black, Norwegian avant-garde, Symphonic, Gothic, symphonic with electronica, beauty and the beast vocal configuriation), to what I do over here at KICK*ASS*METAL, the Python Zero press photo of the Anja Natasha – era of the band hangs in my music library…DO YOU GOTH WHAT IT TAKES…Oh yeah they do. And for this Dismal Euphony is a GODSEND to all fans of gothic classical music, gothic avant-garde classical music, gothic avant-garde rock and metal, gothic rock and gothic metal.

Norway is only 4% of the world’s population, and since say 1993 40% of the classic albums in all sub-genres of heavy metal comes from this Country.

Long Live Dismal Euphony !!!

Long Live Anja Natasha…!!!!!!!!!!!

The five Dismal Euphony albums every fan of gothic metal must own at all cost are…

CLAUDIA NORA PEZZOTTA

INSTRUMENT: Voice
DATE OF BIRTH: December 25, 1989
EQUIPMENT: Shure Mics

WHAT I LIKE: Playing the harp, taking long walks, collecting gemstones, archeology, English, Italian and Classical literature, RPGs, drinking tea (especially with friends), contemplating the mysteries of existence, exploring the labyrinth of my mind.
WHAT I DISLIKE: People talking behind your back, sexism, getting too lost in the labyrinth of my mind

SEMI-SERIOUS BIO: According to a legend, there was this shy little girl living in Milan, seemingly quiet and silent; in truth, you could hear her sing for hours non-stop (joy and delight of her neighbors). At the age of 16 she fell in love with Nightwish and discovered the marvelous world of Metal… that’s the music her soul was longing for! Some years later she began taking singing lessons and realized that -hey! That’s what she wanted to do in life! She finally surrendered to the Muse and followed her to Cremona to study Musicology. Her meeting with Degrees of Truth was another epiphany: That’s the music she always wanted to play, the story she wanted to sing!

FUN FACTS:  I first considered taking classical singing lessons when I was 13, encouraged by a teacher in middle school, who heard me sing the aria “O Mio Babbino Caro”, from Puccini’s “Gianni Schicchi”. In the end, I waited until I was almost 21 and decided for a modern approach to singing. Better late than never!

GIANLUCA PARNISARI

INSTRUMENT: Keyboards and Piano
DATE OF BIRTH: April 21, 1991
EQUIPMENT: Studiologic Keyboards, Alesis Vortex Keytar, Focusrite Audio Interfaces, Steinberg DAWs

WHAT I LIKE: writing and discovering interesting music, when something I do works at the first try, eating and drinking well, MMORPGs, computer technology and flying stuff, astronomy and the Universe misteries.
WHAT I DISLIKE: insisting too much on a topic, when something gets too noisey, argue for little reasons, getting ignored when I talk, standing still with nothing to do.

SEMI-SERIOUS BIO: To be honest I don’t remember the day I began approaching piano, and especially keyboards, as I was born with the instrument at my parents’ place; it was something I learned day by day like reading or writing, During my childhood I played the organ at the local church for several years so, yes, I also have experience on that matter as well. I played in many bands, too many I think, some for some months only but I’m sure I learned a lot from each of these: groove, technical skills, synth programming mainly. Actually I am a full-timer in Degrees Of Truth, writing music, arranging and producing songs and managing band activities; I also write soundtracks for short films and any related project.

FUN FACTS:  I definitely want to own a Hammond Organ. With a Leslie speaker!

GRAZIANO FRANCHETTI

INSTRUMENT: Guitars
DATE OF BIRTH: 14 May, 1987
EQUIPMENT: Ibanez Prestige Guitars, Schecter Custom Guitars, ENGL Amps + Cabs

WHAT I LIKE: listening to fucking metal at morning to wake up, Dragonball Super, doing workouts, carbonara everyday,  moshing at concerts of my favorite bands, always meeting new people, being left-handed (because it feels different!)
WHAT I DISLIKE: working too much, people complaining while moshing at concerts, guys too much on themselves, people making money on other backs, right-handed guitarists! (jk!)

SEMI-SERIOUS BIO: Born in the tiniest city of our region, I was shocked at the age of 13 by Metallica! Grabbing a guitar was the next obvious step; sadly I handled upside down and… I learned that way! When I’m up for playing I always struggle to translate my feelings into music: finding Degrees Of Truth concretized my dreams in making music for passion, and for a living and brought me back the will to improve and increase my skills!

FUN FACTS: My first guitar was a classical guitar: no way to play the “Fade To Black” solo on it, so I traded it for my first YAMAHA electric. Also I don’t cut my hair since i was 13… or almost: I indeed cut my hair by a bunch when my uncle promised to gift me my first Marshall amp!

 

LUCA RAVEZZANI

INSTRUMENT: Drums
DATE OF BIRTH: 23 October, 1993
EQUIPMENT: Ludwig Drums, Paiste Cymbals, Iron Cobra Hardware, Vic Firth Drumsticks

WHAT I LIKE: drumming, drumming all day and each day, listening to music of each kind (especially metal), coffee and a cigarette after waking up, math and physics brain exercises, the comic duo “Luca e Paolo”, riding my bike in the nature, whiskey
WHAT I DISLIKE: the disco and the music they play in, hypocritic and snob people who believe to be better than others, when things don’t work, being lazy

SEMI-SERIOUS BIO: I began approaching music, and especially drumming, thanks to my father, drummer as well. At the age of 14 my parents bought me an electronic drum as a Christmas gift: I learn playing this instrument by myself, except for some father’s advices and taking inspiration from big names such as Mike Portnoy, Marco Minneman and other “progressive monsters” such as Matt Garstka. I played in many musical projects in metal/rock and pop/funk genres focusing mainly on enjoying music and trying any time to communicate feelings through music. Now, in Degrees Of Truth I found what I definitely was searching for.

FUN FACTS: I began playing beating with some sticks on each flat surface I was able to find like VHS boxes, books and baskets. I managed to break about one VHS box a week… poor cassette!

SAMUELE DI NARDO

INSTRUMENT: Bass
DATE OF BIRTH: 5 March, 1992
EQUIPMENT: Cocopelli 6-string custom bass, Fender Jazz,, Epifani Head, MarkBass 4×10 Cabs

WHAT I LIKE: studying and listening to each musical genre everyday (except electronic music), Dragonball Z, cooking (and eating, of course!), tasting good wines, reading, swimming and running. I also love animals, and coffee!
WHAT I DISLIKE: getting drunk, falling asleep too late in the night, dancing, being in crowded places (except concerts, but I usually play there!), straight hair 🙂

SEMI-SERIOUS BIO: Raised in a small country, I always been fashioned by the drums since I started playing the bass at the age of 15. My life dramatically changed when I discovered a peculiar band, which name was “Dream Theater” because I was shocked by their musical knowledge and ingenuity (unfortunately I still have to learn some of their songs…). At the age of 20 I decided that music had to be a very part of my life and I started to be a professional musician in London; I later came back to Italy to perfection and enhance my music skills… then I joined Degrees Of Truth!

FUN FACTS: I love my hair so much that I usually don’t headbang at concerts to avoid spoil them… Beside this I’m a too serious guy to share fun facts about myself!! 🙂

THE SOUND OF THE UNIVERSE  

https://www.facebook.com/pg/degreesoftruthofficial/about/?ref=page_internal

It’s March, 2014. Piano notes floating in the warm studio, moved by a gentle feeling of being in an impalpable dream. Then, the spark: the magic of the first song, the will to forge emotions in music.

A state of slumber and void No hourglass, no sand to fall Silent and constant grey calm No one to see, no one to tell What was before The one spark When the Eggshell broke…

That’s the way Gianluca Parnisari realized that he couldn’t stand anymore with all of this inside: Degrees Of Truth was born.
And like the Universe, described in the songs of first album “The Reins Of Life”, the feelings quickly turned into facts, with the help of other two talentuous musicians: Claudia Nora Pezzotta and Graziano Franchetti, respectively lead vocalist and guitarist.
Between 2014 and 2015 then began the hard work of songwriting where every detail was carefully brewed and refined to be mixed in the first songs. But a good team needs good players, and at that time Degrees Of Truth had two empty slots: before entering the studio Luca Ravezzani, drummer, and Matteo Clark, bassist, joined the band to complete the rhythmic section.

The world is set aflame! And now who’s to survive the new rules of the game?

Right after the studio session, the band submitted the recorded material to the italian label “Underground Symphony”: the songs attract the label’s attention and the band was offered a deal. In October 2016 the first full-length was out and immediately reached the hearts of many of the listeners.
Year 2017 marked the second step in Degrees Of Truth history, the second year and also the second publication. In fact the band signed a deal with “Volcano Records” for the release of the new single titled “Lifeless, Faultless”, out next November 16th.
The title track is a deep insight on the faulty human nature: everyone makes mistakes and each wrong action worsens the fate on each of us; this track also features the first videoclip of the band.
This new package included the acoustic reverìe of the band old glory song “Finite Infinite”, released a bonus track with a lyrics video.
The band is already at work on its next full-length… Shhhht! We are saying no more…

Heavy Metal Heaven – Best of Requests 2017

Anche in questo inizio di 2018 torna il Best of requests di Heavy Metal Heaven, la classifica del meglio recensito su richiesta su queste pagine nel corso dello scorso anno. Rispetto al 2016, che come dicevo nello scorso Best of Requests era molto ricco, il nostro 2017 non lo è stato altrettanto. Ma  anche quest’anno abbiamo recensito molti dischi eccellenti, che meritano una menzione d’onore. Senza ulteriori indugi, largo perciò alle cinque classifiche di quest’anno!

Best of Requests – Italia 

  1. Haunted – Haunted – quest’anno scegliere l’album più bello per quanto riguarda l’Italia è stato difficile: praticamente l’intero podio è alla pari, in fatto di qualità. Alla fine però ho scelto i siciliani Haunted: non hanno la discreta fama underground degli altri due gruppi, ma lo stoner doom metal sentito nell’omonimo full d’esordio è altrettanto meraviglioso!
  2. Black Faith – Nightscapes – come già detto, secondo posto giusto di un pelo per una band abruzzese che all’inizio dell’anno scorso ha pubblicato un secondo album coi fiocchi. Black metal molto classico ma di qualità altissima, che gli vale una meritata medaglia d’argento!
  3. In Tormentata Quiete – Finestatico – gradino più basso del podio per questi bolognesi, diventati ormai una piccola istituzione nell’underground metal italiano. La bellezza del loro avant-garde metal spaziale li fa finire al terzo posto solo perché il primo gradino è uno solo: come già detto, sia loro che i due precedenti lo meriterebbero!
  4. Kyterion – Inferno I – giù dal podio, ma non di molto, finisce questa misteriosa band nostrana. Unendo l’Inferno di Dante e un robusto black/death metal, ha creato qualcosa di vincente, un piccolo grande capolavoro nel suo genere!
  5. Degrees of Truth – The Reins of Life – quinto posto meritato per una band lombarda giovane ma già con le idee molto chiare. Si tratta del fattore chiave per il loro esordio, un album a metà tra progressive e metal sinfonico pieno di sfaccettature, tutto da scoprire per i fan del genere!
  6. Virtual Symmetry – Message from Eternity – si piazza praticamente alla pari col precedente – e coi due seguenti – un altro bell’esordio. Anche questo quintetto milanese suona progressive metal, seppur in una chiave più melodica, ma il risultato non cambia!
  7. Altair – Descending: A Devilish Comedy – finisce al settimo posto più per meriti altrui che per demeriti propri. Eh sì, perché anche questo concept album di una band ferrarese che al progressive accoppia heavy e power si rivela grandioso!
  8. Frozen Sand – Fractals – A Shadow Out of Lights – completa il quartetto di album progressive un altro esordio assoluto di qualità altissima, in questa caso di una band piemontese giovane ma molto matura e con belle idee. Come già detto, è praticamente alla pari con le precedenti: anche stavolta se il quinto posto non fosse unico, ci finirebbero in quattro!
  9. Chiral – Gazing Light Eternally – la volta scorsa, lo splendido Night Sky del progetto piacentino era finito per un pelo giù dal podio. Quest’anno la one-man band non è riuscita a ripetersi sullo stesso livello, ma non è un problema: il suo nuovo album è ancora di altissima qualità e merita un posto in classifica, sia pure il penultimo.
  10. Eva Can’t – Gravatum – chiude la parte degli album italiani un altro lavoro progressive, seppur stavolta siamo spostati su sonorità molto più di nicchia ed estreme. Ma i risultati sono lo stesso grandiosi nelle mani dei bolognesi, che riescono a raggiungere l’ultimo posto disponibile.

Best of Requests – estero

  1. Frowning – Extinct – mentre nella sezione italiana la vittoria è stata molto combattuta, in quella straniera vince in maniera piuttosto netta questo progetto tedesco funeral doom metal cupo, atmosferico ma anche caldo, melodico. Non che gli altri siano da meno: semplicemente, per quanto siano buoni i successivi il suo esordio riesce persino a superarli!
  2. Raven’s Gate – Blackstar Machinery – gradino di mezzo per il secondo album di questi spagnoli, autori di un power metal insieme classico e innovativo. Se è vero che il genere sta rinascendo, gli iberici hanno tutte le carte per diventare una delle band cardine della nuova scena!
  3. Essence of Datum – Nevermore – anche per questa medaglia di bronzo, abbiamo un ex-equo tra tre band progressive. Ma alla fine l’hanno spuntata gli Essence of Datum, band bielorussa autrice di un prog metal tecnico e strumentale di grande qualità, che rende il secondo album un vero e proprio capolavoro.
  4. The King – Race Above the Sky – giù dal podio, ma giusto per un soffio, un progetto polacco che in questo caso accoppia al prog influssi thrash. Tuttavia i risultati sono praticamente gli stessi della posizione precedente – e la qualità pure!
  5. Fractal Cypher – The Human Paradox – terzo album progressive che meriterebbe almeno una medaglia di bronzo – e che non ci arriva per un pelo. Un po’ un peccato, visti il valore e la maturità di questa band canadese, ma in fondo non importa: il posto in classifica è comunque assicurato!
  6. Argus Megere – VEII – col suo terzo album, questa grandiosa band rumena sfiora il capolavoro: merito di un symphonic black metal elegante, melodico, ricercato e rivolto all’atmosfera, che la fa entrare di diritto al sesto posto.
  7. Lethe – The First Corpse on the Moon – una nomination un po’ al limite, visto che questa sorta di supergruppo formato da Anna Murphy con alcuni membri dei Manes è molto spostata verso il post-rock. Ma visto che il metal non manca e che comunque la qualità dell’album è altissima, alla fine qui non stona.
  8. Nicumo – Storms Arise – visto quanto la Scandinavia abbia prodotto negli ultimi anni in fatto di quantità e qualità, non stupisce di trovare qui anche una band finlandese. Che del resto merita la sua posizione con lo splendido mix di potenza, melodia e malinconia del suo melodic death/gothic metal.
  9. Ten – Gothica – forse il loro non è metal in senso stretto, ma visto che Heavy Metal Heaven si occupa anche del loro genere – e che il loro tredicesimo album è eccezionale sotto tutti i punti di vista – la presenza di queste leggende dell’hard rock melodico in classifica è più che legittima!
  10. Gateway – Scriptures of Grief – ultima posizione per questo breve album di un’altra one-man band, stavolta belga e che crea un album davvero nichilista al massimo col suo death/doom grezzo e marcio. Merita perciò una posizione – seppur sia l’ultima – in questa sezione!

Best of Requests – miglior demo/EP (non d’esordio)

  1. Last Bullet – 80-69-64 – con pochi dubbi, è il miglior EP recensito quest’anno, da massimo dei voti. Merito dell’hard rock della band canadese, energico, sensuale e molto ben suonato, che rende divertente dal primo all’ultimo i venti minuti del disco!
  2. Stilema – Ithaka – secondo posto, ma d’onore, per questa band laziale: anch’essa sfiora la perfezione con il suo terzo EP, reso fascinoso da un folk metal mediterraneo molto curato e ben fatto.
  3. Felis Catus – Megapophasis – strano ma ottimo questo mini album di una one-man band siciliana, che mescola tanti elementi diversi in un black/avant-garde metal ben unito e di gran forza. Una medaglia di bronzo che arriva a poca distanza dagli altri due gradini del podio!
  4. Infinight – Fifteen – un EP breve ma ottimo, inciso da dei veterani del power metal tedesco per commemorare il loro quindicesimo anno di vita. Poteva essere un lavoro poco ispirato, e invece… il quarto posto è più che guadagnato!
  5. Badmotorfinger – Heroes – il 2017 è stato un anno un po’ magro per gli album brevi; ciò non toglie però che questa band bolognese meriti la presenza qui al cento percento. Visto il loro southern/heavy metal tosto e diretto, parliamo di un lavoro di gran fascino.

Best of Requests – demo/EP d’esordio più promettente:

  1. Nekhen – Entering the Gate of the Western Horizon – chi mi segue sa che difficilmente do un voto pieno a un album, ma l’esordio assoluto di questa misteriosa band nostrana lo merita. Il suo doom/folk metal contaminato dalla cultura dell’antico Egitto sia musicalmente che concettualmente è di un fascino grandioso: medaglia d’oro strameritata!
  2. Underball – Underball – chi l’ha detto che il metal debba per forza essere serio? Questi romani dimostrano che anche senza prendersi sul serio si può fare bene: lo dimostra il loro EP omonimo, che col suo mix di heavy, thrash ‘n’ roll e ignoranza diverte alla grandissima!
  3. Æxylium – The Blind Crow – gradino più basso del podio per una band varesina che pur non brillando per originalità risulta fresca e mai derivativa. Nonostante le sole tre canzoni e la brevità, il loro EP non ha nessun bisogno di aiuti per raggiungere questa posizione!
  4. Fyrecross – Burn Them to the Ground – nel caso dei greci, parliamo di heavy metal classico con influssi speed, ma ben realizzato e meno scontato di buona parte del revival degli ultimi tempi. Si tratta insomma di un esordio notevole, di sicuro degno di essere presente qui.
  5. Fvneral Fvkk – The Lecherous Liturgies – anche questo quartetto tedesco non si prende troppo sul serio: qualcosa di molto personale, visto che suonano epic doom metal, genere in cui di norma succede. Nonostante questo fattore – o forse proprio grazie a esso – il loro esordio convince e risulta molto promettente: in questa classifica non poteva mancare!
 
Le recensioni celebrative del 2017:
  1. Bathory – Under the Sign of the Black Mark: scelto in occasione dei suoi trent’anni perché è il primo album black puro della storia, genere che ha contribuito a definire e a staccare dall’heavy e dal thrash da cui deriva.
  2. Helloween – Keeper of the Seven Keys – Part I: scelto in occasione dei suoi trent’anni perché è il lavoro che definisce il power metal moderno nei suoi stilemi e caratteristiche principali, e ha influenzato quasi tutti nel genere.
  3. Death – Scream Bloody Gore: scelto in occasione dei suoi trent’anni perché è il primo album death metal al cento percento, e ha contribuito a staccarlo dal thrash originario.
  4. Guns N’ Roses – Appetite for Destruction: scelto in occasione dei suoi trent’anni perché è uno degli album hard rock più venduti della storia e perché ancora oggi è una leggenda, visto il suo assoluto valore musicale.
  5. Rhapsody – Legendary Tales: scelto in occasione dei suoi vent’anni perché non solo ha contribuito alla definizione e alla diffusione del power sinfonico e di quello epico, ma è l’inizio della carriera di una delle band metal italiane più famose al mondo.

TWISTED VALUES

Written by : Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral * Lyrics by : Fernanda Lira

Disorganized State, organized crime
Fear is taking over, hate being spread
fight for equality, so there’s no excuses
Not a society’s product, but their own choice’s

A Covered Up Civil War
Laws Done By Outlaws
Lives taken in vain
Terror practiced for fun

Twisted Values
Impurity
Twisted Values
Injustice

No role modles to follow, no enough laws to punish
Being evil is good, violence is usual

Killings going on and nothings done
Don’t do it by need, it’s pleasure (casuse) they’ll be free

Until when lives will be valueless?
Until when we’ll sustain them?
Until when we’ll be victim’s of their responsibilities?

Twisted Values
Impurity
Twisted Values
Corruption

JUSTICE BE DONE

Written by: Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira

Children defenseless against cowards
Torture, abuse, harm
Leave Marks, satisfy desires
Evil pest, what is going on?

Fear
of the filthy hands
Guilt
of doing nothing
Pain
suffering in silence
Rage
they just can’t forget

Justice be Done
Silent Hurt
Justice be Done

Nowhere to run or to hide
No enough laws to punish or fight
The family won’t listen their cry
I speak in the name of this child

WAKE UP AND FIGHT
Written by: Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira

Wake up and fight!
Wake up and fight!

While you’re hungry-they feed their greed
While you’re homeless-they live confomfortably
While you’re dumb-they steal your money
When you’re blingd-they make fake promises

Own benefit
Death of Ethic
Power Games
Laughing at ya

The raise up the flag of fucking likes
They betray us who should be (their) allies
Submit us to their shitty corruption

People don’t know
Were on Control!

NASTY INJURY

Written by: Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Prika Amaral

Time becoming a loss
Transforming every minute in pain
Won’t escape, took the blame, cold blood
Searching the unthinkable

Want to make otherwise
A moment of pure ambition
Seeking a reversal mode
You won’t get nothing from revenge

Search will be constant
Return won’t exist
Time Will be lost
No Satisfaction

Revenge!
Suffering!
Are the Consequences of his revenge
Revenge!
Suffering!
Are the principle of his defeat now
Revenge!
Suffering!
Are the values of your life now

ENVIOUS

Written by: Prika Amaral, Fernanda Lira and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira 
Watch other thrive
Corrodes you inside
Wasted Struggle
Insult to your self-worth

You envy but you don’t recognize the hard work
My wise piece of mind-your frustration inside

Shut, move,
No words, but action
Shut, move
Pursuit satisfaction

It made me stronger
I forgave the slander
Incompetence, hate
Makes you feel this way

Trust your value
Do it better
Don’t envy other
Have your merits

MORBID COURAGE

Written by: Prika Amaral, Fernanda Lira and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Prika Amaral

A loser
A weak
A coward
Not able to build

Your life a mistake
Stealing won’t change you better

Inability, agony will go over you
Coward character
The hate, disgrace is what you’re gonna get

Your not free – and will never will be
Your not free – mistaken obsession

Morbid courage
Morbid and lost

Freed is lost
You choose the evil path

Your life – disgrace
You’ll pay for what you caused

DEATH!

Written by: Prika Amaral, Fernada Lira Lyrics by: Prika Amaral

The line is formed, wait for your turn, it’s going to come
Your are not alone and not going to die alone
There is a wall of people like you, afraid and crying, begging for life
Memories from your past, despair in your mind, the time has come

Bullet in the skin
Bullet in the head

Draining blood
Aiming The target
The end, the execution

Death! Death! Death!
Death! Death! Death! Shots fired

What was your sin? Why are you there? Do you deserve it?
Is if fair? Is it right? Is it wrong? What is justice?
Is it a education matter? Is it a religion matter?
Is it a culture matter?
What is going on?

INTO MOSHPIT

Written by: Fernanda Lira, Prika Amaral and Fernanda Terra Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira

Join the army, get in the violent mosh
Metal taking over
Arise your fistful of metal
Join the art of partying
Don’t care (about) the morning after

Bangers are bonded by blood
So the legacy survive
There’s no space for ignorance
There’s no malicious intent

No illusions
Grin on face
Show no mercy
This is thrash zone

The most terror squad
Is possessed by fire
Extreme aggression
Metal pandemonium

Into moshpit
Into moshpit
Into moshpit
Into moshpit

DEEP MISERY

Hunger compresses the stomach, despair increasing
Skin and bones, weakness, anemia and diseases

The cold from the ground freezes the sould
People despise deep misery
Who cares, does nothing change
Tis is no impossible for anyone

Anybody cares?
Anybody care?

The pain not to be nothing
the pain not to ben anyone anyone
The pain not to be anymore
The pain to be exclude

Deep misery
Deep misery
Deep misery
Deep misery

The pain of hunger is not a reason
People pretend not to see
Who care, dones not contribute
Any you can be in this situation

Repeat chorus

A bother of a hard ground bring pain
People ignore what they see
Who cares, doesn’t really help others
This can not happen to you, you are not free

Anybody cares?
Anybody cares?

VICTIM OF YOURSELF
Lyrics by: Fernanda Lira

The real you isn’t what you show
Your Not authentic
Blame others for your flaws
It is easier than admitting them

A lack inside, hidden by pride
Victim’s the hurt child lying inside

CHORUS

Victim of
Victim of yourself
Victim of
Victim of yourself

It is the only way to get your need’s satisfaction
It is the only way you’ll get attention
It is the only way you’ll deserve compassion
It is the only way you can fell you’re special

REPEAT CHORUS

You think you’re always right
Never Swallow your pride
Don’t admit your wrong
Hurt the ones who love you

REPEAT CHORUS

Created a safe, lunatic world to run from yourself
Afraid, you know you’ll be alone when truth overcome this lies

(Your) freak attitudes will come back to you
Don’t say you got nothing to do with the disgrace

REPEAT CHORUS

It is the only way (you) play the kid forever
It is the only way you won’t admit your shallow
But beware you’re creating your own prison
You’ll only become crazy, faker and alone

REPEAT CHORUS

After a short intro entitled Intro and it starts of with LOUD cracking of thunder lighting and a creaking gate, and machine gun fire, and has a totally ominous vibe, that every fan of metal should be able to enjoy and notice the screams in the background, and the RIFF @ the 56 second mark displays why Prika Amaral is KICK*ASS*METALS favorite guitar player who was voted # 20 world-wide of all time, as the greatest guitarist in not only traditional metal but true metal, what later became known as extreme metal. This piece of music from 56 – 2:00 minutes mark is totally mind-blowing and jaw dropping, and a sight to behold.

Twisted Values is up first and this song is a perfect example why Prika Amaral is a top 20 ranked / rated Guitarist of all time With KICK*ASS*METAL and it subsidiary the KICK*ASS*METAL heavy metal hall of fame.

Prika Starts the proceeding with one of the most unique guitar tones I have heard in a longtime.

And a 54 second in Nervosa demonstrates why they are one of the most original and most important bands of the decade of 2010 and of all time.

By 229 Prika Amaral executes a rather awesome guitar solo.

Justice Be Done starts of with a rather unique riff and the song builds up nicely then around the 33 second mark the Nervosa trade mark sound is in full effect. Around the 108 mark excellent vocals provide by BOTH Fernanda Lira, and Prika Amaral. The solo @ the 140 mark will have your jaw on the floor and ends around the 2 minute mark. Fernada Lira sounds unreal on this one, make Fernada Lira the most magnificent most original metal vocalist of the decade 2010 and of all time

Wake Up and Fight is up next by the tome of 1 minute in the Prika Amaral guitar tone really gets to shine. Lots of genius to the songwriting on the music on this song at this point. Fernanada Lira really shines as a world-class vocalist on this song. The solo at the 245 mark is rather breath-taking and will send chills up and down your spine. This song is a total metal CRUNCHER.

Nasty Injury starts off with the one-of-kind guitar tone of Prika Amaral and around the 40 second mark Nervosa gets into high Nervosa thrash gear before the two-minute mark Prika Amaral does some excellent riff work then around the 2:10 mark some excellent riff and rhythm work is excecuted by Prika Amaral. The solo @ the 2:20 – 2:27 mark is totally well written and executed by World Class Guitarist Prika Amaral. And the rhythm section work by Fernanda Lira and Pitch Ferraz is totally mind blowning a perfect in all songwriting aspect. The songs main riff is used throughout the 3 minutes mark

Envious is up next. The Solo at the 2:14 mark is executed very well and demonstrates why Prika Amaral is a top rated in the top 20 of all time at kick ass metal. And Fernada Lira does some world-class bass work @ the 2:20 mark. Then @ the 2:26 mark Prika Amaral writes one of the most head banging riffs of the 21st century. The guitar tone of Prika Amaral that I love the most is on display @ the 2:40 mark. The song picks up pace then @ the 3:40 mark the song down shift into bone cruching metal style, the kind of songwriting that is perfect for head banging.

Morbid Courage is up next, and starts of Prika Amaral’s signature one-of-a-kind guitar tone. And has an excellent song build up in terms of intensity and heaviness in the fist minutes. Morbid Courage has excellent Lira/ Amaral vocal exchanges in the 1 and a half-minute mark. There is a perfect example of Pitchu Ferraz world clas drumming style @ the 1:50-1:58 mark. @ the 1:58 mark the song downs shifts for an excellent Prika Amaral solo, @ the 2:05 second mark.

Death! is up next and is one of the Greatest, written Metallic songs of all time. Prika Amaral displays every aspect of her unique and original style. I have watched the legendary video for over 7, 899 times by now since it was released around a month ago. The guitar solo starts @ the 1:22 mark and is well written and executed perfectly by metal axepert Prika Amaral. And last to the 1:54 mark. @ the 2 minute mark, the song is totally in the pocket, At the 3;00 minutes mark the Prika Amaral one-of-a-kind guitar tone is one display again in all its metallic glory.

THE GUITAR SOLO on DEATH! is one of KICK*ASS*METAL’S personal favorites of all time. Our jaws were on the floor on this one. 100% world-class dedication to her instrument.

Into Moshpit is up next and @ the 40 second mark, once can hear a totally unique and original riff executed by Prika Amaral. The guitar work provide by Prika Amaral in the 1st minute of this song can only be called original and world-class, and is provides total Nervosa thrash metal evocation. @ the 1:07 mark there is a totally KICK*ASS*METAL riff written and executed by Prika Amaral, it is because of guitar work like this, that Prika Amaral will forever be remembered as the most important, original, and magnificent guitarist of the 21st Century. Nervosa is not retro-this or retro-that, but a band that will survive the test of time. I am totally addicted to this song, because of Prika Amaral awesome guitar tones. The solo is @ the 3:14 mark, and is pretty mind-blowing and pretty stellar and world-class

Vicitm of Yourself is up next. And starts of with a totally original riff a PRIKA AMARAL riff, you can tell in a micro-second who Prika Amaral is over the other 92, 999 guitarist who also play metal. What one notices immediately about Prika Amaral is that Prika is a one-of-a-kind and a true original. @ The 48 second mark a killer song writing part takes place. Victim of Yourself the song, has one of the greatest riffs not just of the decade 2010, but of all time.

Uranio Em Nos…aka via translation means something similar to “Uranium in” * And this song starts with an AIR RAID siren. And that is just songwriting genius. The CD’s closer has a lot of excellent metal vibes because it is sung in Nervosa native language giving the song a nice personalized aspect from the songwriters point of view. World Class job on this song and the whole album.

I love Nervosa

and

I am a NERVOSA-thrasher 4 life !!!!!!

All female power thrash metal trio from São Paulo, formed by Fernanda Lira (bass and vocals), Prika Amaral (guitar and backing vocals) and Luana Dametto (drums).

Despite being part of bands from different styles previously, like death metal and crossover, all members see in the compositions of Nervosa a same passion: thrash metal. With strong influences coming from bands of this genre’s classic school, the girls of the band seek to rescue the best in heavy music.

Prika Amaral started the band in February 2010, and in July 2011 Fernanda Lira took on the bass and vocals of NERVOSA, and only then, finally with the full team, the band started working as a professional band – writing songs, recording, playing shows.

In March 2012, the band released their first music video for “Masked Betrayer,” which reached the incredible mark, for a new band, of 20,000 views in just one week, prompting them to receive an Honorable Mention from YouTube, as the 17th most watched clip of musicians of the week and 55th most viewed in the month of March of that year.

Thanks to the notoriety gained through their hard work, NERVOSA in the following months, achieved a great accomplishment: the contract with the Austrian label Napalm Records, which has in their roster names like Cavalera Conspiracy, WASP, Grave Digger, Moonspell, Huntress, among many others.

Still in 2012, the band’s first record, a demo with 3 tracks, was released in Brazil on CD independently, under the title ’2012′ in August, and abroad by Napalm Records on turquoise vinyl, and by Nuclear Blast in a clear version, both under the title ‘Time Of Death’, whose cover art was designed by artist Andrei Bouzikov, who has worked with several bands previously, such as Municipal Waste.

Nervosa ends the year 2012 with a very positive balance with more than 50 concerts made around the country, among them, sharing the stage with bands like Exodus, Raven, Grave, Samael (in the festival Roça n Roll), Exumer and Artillery , among others.

After a period of exchanging drummers, the one who assumed the position in February of 2013 was Pitchu Ferraz.

Thus, the year 2013 began with a renewed vibe, and the band continued to promote their EP throughout the country, with shows in several states, and even a tour over the North and Northeast of the country, as well as sharing the stage with other great Names of the world scene such as Korzus, Ratos de Porão and also Destruction, Exciter, Blaze Bayley, Kreator, DRI And Benediction.

In 2014, the girls finished the recording of their first full lenght, titled Victim of Yourself, which had 12 tracks and whose cover was signed again by the artist Andrei Bouzikov, and the booklet was produced by the Brazilian artist Rafael Romanelli.

The album was released in March of that same year by Napalm Records in Europe and North America, and by other record companies and distributors in South America, Japan and Russia. In addition to the traditional CD format, 4 vinyl versions were also released – in black, blue, red and clear colors, distributed by Napalm Records itself and also by Nuclear Blast.

Two clips were released throughout the album’s promotion: ‘Death!’, which achieved record-breaking views among the band’s videos (over 1 million views), and ‘Into Moshpit’, a live video compilation that demonstrates all the energy of the girls in a live show.

These two singles, added to the other tracks of the album, made ‘Victim of Yourself’ reach great response from the metal audience, as well as prominence and good ratings in major magazines in the segment around the world, such as European Metal Hammer, Rock Hard , Terrorizer and Bass Guitar, the American Revolver and Guitar World and even the Japanese Burrrn, as well as the Brazilian Roadie Crew, Bass Player, Guitar Player and Modern Drummer magazines.

The good reception of the album was essential to result in a long and intense tour that lasted for the years 2014 and 2015. To promote the album in Brazil, the band played in 17 states, went through 7 countries in Latin America and made a A successful European tour with 51 shows in 60 days, including a total of 16 countries in the continent, including performances at some of Europe’s biggest summer festivals such as Summerbreeze, Brutal Assault, Metal Days, Obscene Extreme, among others.

The ‘Victim of Yourself’ promotion tour also took the band to the United States for the first time in 2016. Starting with two presentations on the already traditional ’70000 tons of metal’ cruise, leaving from Florida and going to Jamaica, the tour also passed through much of the West Coast of the country and also to the South, with more than 30 concerts from the state of Washington all the way to the state of Florida. In addition, other new territories were explored by Nervosa, such as Mexico, where the band toured for two weeks, and other locations such as Puerto Rico and Peru.

In 2016, the band recorded their new album, titled ‘Agony’. Recorded and produced in the states of California and Oregon in the United States by Brendan Duffey and mixed and mastered by thrash master Andy Classen, the album had its world premiere announced for June 3 by the Austrian label Napalm Records.

This same year was also very intense regarding shows to promote their latest album: there were more than 160 shows only in 2016.

‘Agony’ promotion tours include a European summer tour with almost 50 dates, a full month of shows on the US East Coast and also in Canada, as well as two European tours as special guests of the German band Destruction for a total of almost 60 shows, part of them being alongside the great bands Flotsam & Jetsam and Enforcer.

In 2017, who officially takes over the drums of the band is the competent Luana Dametto, who already joins it participating in the writing of the new NERVOSA album, scheduled to be out in 2018, and also facing the second leg of Agony promotion tours.

The ‘World in Agony Tour’ will be a tour that aims exploring several countries and continents around the world. So far are already announced the legs in Brazil (which has been taking place since February this year), in Mexico and Central America in May and June and in Europe during the months of July, August and part of September. In addition, plans are already being worked out to take the tour back to the US and Canada, as well as to South America and also in new territories, such as Asia.
